Or, for those who have the extended version of Photoshop, you could just you could just edit the video in Photoshop! I love editing short clips in Photoshop.

Nicole - yes two video cameras side by side. I taped 2 flip video cameras together. Use a clapperboard or some other device to ensure that you have a starting point for synchronising your two videos. Use the blending in Premiere just as you would in Photoshop. I seem to remember it wasn't exactly like Photoshop, but have forgotten what the problem was - something to do with using a different blending type or something...its been a while.

Colin, I love this! I was just thinking about how I might do this, and here it is. Will definitely try it! Now, do do this with video, I'm thinking that you'd need two cameras, side by side, right?

Lovely idea. A great way to teach layers, channels and blending modes.

Thanks for sharing this Colin. I have students doing research on 3-D glasses, 3-D cameras and 3-D tvs right now. This will be a great assignment to share with them so they can better understand how simple the actual concept is and they can try it themselves.

I second, Carolyn's comment. Haven't seen or tried this, but certainly will be soon. Thanks, Colin!

Thanks, Colin, for this great tutorial. The fact that it's short and simple means it is much more do-able in the time we have with our classes! With 3D everything going on around us, kids will get a better understanding of how it works, when they create their own 3D image.
