Anaglyph glasses help

Just got into watching anaglyph 3D and am looking for better glasses than the paper ones. I have read that the red should have diopter correction added and that the blue should be made to allow a small percentage of red in? Any advice on brands and where to buy? I dont know if the same would apply to the

I saw some from berezin.com. Are these any good? I also saw Inficolor magenta-green glasses and Trioscopic green-magenta glasses.
Not sure if the last two can be used for all anaglyph 3d movies or only ones in the green/magenta.

Please help me on this. Thanks.

stick to red/cyan colored glasses as those others have very few movies published and usually they came with cardboard glasses included since they were not standard.

What I like to buy is the flip up clip on anaglyph red - cyan these get you all the advantages you noted. Cyan will allow a bit of red through and match the cyan in the program. It is not blue. The clip on ones will allow you to use them with your Rx glasses if you wear Rx normally. If not you can find red - cyan in frames too as then you don't require the correction.

You don't have to spend much for a pair so experiment if you don't like the quality. I use something similar to these:

https://www.amazon.com/Glasses-Presc...yph+3d+glasses

I also use flip up polar clip ons too so my Rx glasses I wear for my workstation, more distant than reading glasses- focuses from 1.5 ft to 6 ft, give perfect sharp vision for my passive monitor.

Thanks for the help and explaining about going with the cyan instead of the blue. I just started with the anaglyph 3d and I think I have a new hobby now.

Problem with the anaglyph is you won't see real quality because these colored glasses shift the color. If you can find one, get a 3D TV, either passive or active glasses and your enjoyment will be even better.

I used to have a 3d TV before I upgraded to 4k. Certainly its not the same quality as my old active 3d glasses but it still cool and really inexpensive fun. I
just discovered that I can watch 3d on a regular TV and watched Friday the 13th part 3. Pretty good fun. Just looking for better glasses that might help with the ghosting etc. This is a cheap way to have fun with movies like this. I'm gonna start looking around to see what other movies I can pick up. Something else to collect and fill up the apartment with. LOL.

You should do a search on You Tube for "3D" and you'll find lots of anaglyph because YT now defaults to anaglyph if your YT and Player do not support SBS or T/B 3D.

Here's something different-- It's a 360 VR 3D video you can set for anaglyph in the You Tube settings, or just set for 2D. I just uploaded it. 360 VR in 3D is really new and the editing software is loaded with flaws. To date there is only one editor that can do the Editing and it is adobe Premiere Pro. Even then it had a number of problems that finally got resolved yesterday so I could render the output for You Tube. It still suffers some flaws that will likely get worked out in future releases. One of the flaws is the image stabilizer has a few problems that I had to manually work around so the stabilize feature doesn't work as well as it should when the video is in 3D and 360 VR.

As you go deeper in to the World of Anaglyphic 3D Cartoons, Images, Movies and Games...many of them predating today's 3D Technology, you will soon learn that there are DIFFERENT COLOR SYSTEMS....and different Viewing Glasses:
https://the3dmarket.com/collections/anaglyphic
http://stcroixstudios.com/wilder/ana...sanaglyph.html

Inexpensive Paper 3D Viewers are not capable of providing DIOPTER CORRECTION for the RED Filter, as found in "ANACHROME" and "MIRACHROME" Plastic Glasses:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anagly...ed-cyan_method

Such as implemented in fol. "ANACHROME" 3D Viewing Glasses:

Fol. website also offers a variety of viewing Glasses....and 3D Images/Movies:

I have been playing with different anaglyph sysems for a while and colorcode (yellow/blue) provide the BEST color spectrum and the least eyestrain, IMHO.
There is a free video player for Windows, Daum Pot Player, that will convert SBS and TAB 3d videos into the different anaglyph systems and also includes settings for Dubois optimized anaglyph in red/cyan, magenta/green, and yellow/blue.
The main disadvantage to the yellow/blue anaglyph is that you have to slightly boost the brightness and tweak the contrast slightly because it makes the image darker. However, this small disadvantage is well worth the natural color spectrum and more comfortable viewing experience.
I have not really seen that much of an improvement with anachrome/miraccrome glasses over uncorrected ones and I can notice the change in image size created by the diopter correction in the red lens that I find bothersome.
The green/magenta (Trioscopic) system has HORRIBLE color but does give a bright image. I have never found it to be a satisfactory viewing experience and it gives me more eyestain and retinal rivalry than red/cyan and yellow/blue.

Also, if you want to watch yt3d:enable=true YoutTube videos in any system besides red/cyan you have to disable the HTML5 viewer and view them as flash videos. this is easy to do by using Firefox and either by editing their url and replacing the /watch?v=with /v/ or installing a browser add on such as YouTube Flash Player. The YouTube HTML5 player is severely limited in 3d playback and only allows red/cyan anaglyph. The YouTube flash player supports full color, Dubois optimized, and greyscale anaglyph in red/cyan, yellow/blue and green/magenta (and also sbs, interleaved, parallel, cross eye, and other stereoscopic methods) and also allows swapping the left and right channels.
