Nice technique. One of your subjects look familiar!

And with only two images, it's even easier!
Just use Stereo Photo Maker's Make animated GIF function...

Does the stereo GIF give a static 3D illusion -- I imagine it might if it rapidly goes back and forth between the two images -- rather than the movement effect you get with the 4 images?

Well, stereo images are a lot less smooth than the 4 image gifs.
To make them better, I think I'd need to put them in movie maker, animate the transition and then reconvert to gif...
Or if you know of a morphing program that can do the matrices in a semi automatic fashion, that would be fantastic.

Here's a sample

But with a bit of brains, you can turn the jumpy seizure inducing dual image jump into this.
Since we're limited to 200kb here, I made it small and jumpy. But it can be made bigger and smoother with next to no effort.

I would align the two images to keep the foreground subject static and the environment around her move.

That would also be possible.
I just did it the quick and dirty way.
The frame is not too even so I need to be more careful when I set the corners.
Still, its pretty amazing for something done with only two images.
And you should see it with more frames!

Dog by adoephoto, on Flickr

Found an N8000 on eBay for cheap. Loaded a roll of expired fomapan 100 and grabbed some quick shots for a test. Opened the tank during development by accident (stupidity). But, this is going to be fun when I get in front of some subjects that will really suit the medium. Photoshop has an animation window, who knew? (I'v only been using it since the early 90s)  :P

Thanks for the how to!

You're welcome!  That looks really cool!

Now I'm regretting getting rid of my Nishika N8000 a few years ago.

Personally, I have a certain criteria when it comes to cameras when choosing which ones to keep:
1. Is it really nice to use?
2. Is it so weird that it will get people talking?

If it falls in at least one of those categories, it's a keeper.

We had some fun playing with the camera on Halloween. I was looking through a book of Victorian stereographs and many were hand-tinted, so I thought I'd give that a quick and not so staying within the lines go.
