Creating an Anaglyph from a Stereograph

Back in 2005, I wrote a little blog post about creating stereo images with the GIMP along with a screencast. Little did I know that a couple of years later, I'd end up learning far more about stereo imaging when I became the stereo rendering lead for Toy Story and Toy Story 2. This post has circulated back to the sidebar in my "years ago on this date" section, so I thought I'd resurrect this video (the links were broken) and even though it is dated, it's still pretty good information, so check I thought I'd upload it to (I would have done Youtube, but it's 11 minutes long, and Youtube rejected it) and make it available again. Enjoy!

Handmade Cigar Box Instruments – Ukuleles – Banjos – Guitars

It's been a while since I posted a link to anything related to home made musical instruments, so when I ran across this page this morning, I thought of my friend Tom and his love of quirky instruments, and decided to pass it along. Papa's Boxes sells both kits and completed ukuleles and banjos made from cigar boxes. Pretty neat folk instruments. Check it out.
