My First 3-D Anaglyph Video

I shot my first Red-Cyan 3-D anaglyph video for the video open for the 2010 Student Video Expo for Front Range Community College. I shot using two Canon HV-30s mounted as close as was possible (lens centers were about four inches apart.) and obviously shot it against a green screen, just to make it more difficult. Post Production in FCP6, I probably could have got better results using After Effects.
I made a lot of mistakes and learned a lot. One problem that I encountered is since you can’t gen-lock these cameras they were about a half a frame from being in perfect sync. Also due to the crap HDV 4.0.0 color space and temporal compression, quick motion breaks up the video, especially in the red channel.
