Lightbulb Hybrid convergent-parallel stereoscopic camera setup

I developed this early in 2010 when tasked with some stereoscopic work in Lightwave. The built-in stereo camera was uselessly limited at the time (not even supporting photoreal motion blur), so...using Lightwave's tilt-shift camera and basic nulls, this setup lets you create perfectly tuned convergence without any perspective distortion. Pretty nifty, if I dare say so myself.

(Lightwave scene downloads are available from the Vectorform blog)

I've uploaded sample images to the Newtek forum post. More tutorials to follow in the next couple of weeks, covering basic Anachrome/Trioscopic/ColorCode compositing in Photoshop, After Effects, and Quartz (for use with Noise Industries' FxFactory Pro in Final Cut, Motion, or After Effects).
