Oldest Color Film Footage Dates to 1899

Not technically 3D, but some very interesting news about early color film footage that has recently been assembled. I found the article and accompanying video to be quite fascinating.

I found this quite interesting, too.

The reel it was on must be worth a fortune - if indeed it is the first colour movie ever.

Thanks that was great, the patience required to reconstruct the footage. Kudos to them men who did that.

I wonder if there was a bit of clever software they could have used to fix the chromatic aberration (type look) - say, by tracing and morphing each set of three frames so they fit each other?
