3D technology is getting maturer nowadays. Movie fans would like to create 3D movies from original 2D movies. Among many 3D types, anaglyph and side-by-side 3D are two common types. This post takes anaglyph 3D as an example to show 3D movies fans how to convert 2D Blu-ray to MKV in anaglyph 3D.

Part 1: Warming up for Anaglyph 3D

Anaglyph 3D encodes each eye’s image using filters of opposite colors, typically red and cyan. The two differently filtered images ensure different light information hits each eye, tricking your typical perception and causing the foreground to jump out at you. When viewed through the “color-coded” “anaglyph glasses”, each of the two images reaches the eye it’s intended for, revealing an integrated stereoscopic image. The visual cortex of the brain fuses this into perception of a three-dimensional scene or composition.
