Ever since seeing 3D dinosaurs in my viewmaster, I have imagined them moving. As a amateur on a shoestring  budget, I turned to the old anaglyph method in the hopes of a successful 3D experiment with stop-motion. Click on the links below to view my latest attempt. Due to the camera set up, I could not use a frame grabber, so I had to shoot old school, relying on memory. I could not believe how freeing this was. It forced me to focus because I knew I could not check my progress every frame. Overall I think the animation turned out ok for what it was. I may try doing some more freestyle animation like this, but I will definitely use a surface gauge next time. As for the 3D, you will need red/cyan glasses to view the effect. I am still getting some ghosting or "crosstalk", but I am working on these alignment issues. I have also posted a link to a "flat" version, as well as a slideshow on how I made the puppets. Let me know what you think.
