I've been trying to build up a tutorial on some special effects. I've
managed a somewhat decent motion blur and focal blur, and a "portal"
effect where one part of the image is in a different space than the rest.
For the anaglyph, remember you can also include the mesh AS AN OBJECT in
the scene itself. Jaime's Vignette code does this. The mesh_camera
doesn't sit on the mesh, but starts the rays just offset from the mesh.
So you may be able to include them and tint them ... oh, yeah. I see the
problem. You can't group real world objects with individual rays in the
definition. Maybe build the scene in two sets, and two copies of the
mesh with the tinted overlays for each set (or, at that point, large
semi transparent spheres around each set would do it).
Just a thought.
