Does the Robert Rig record full-color 3D?
Yes, the Robert Rig records full-color 3D images. Once the images are recorded, you have the ability to output them into any of the 3D viewing formats including: Anaglyph, DCP, Lenticular, Side-by-Side, Over/Under, etc
Why a beamsplitter? Can't I just record side-by-side?
Generally, you will need a beamsplitter to record good 3D anytime you are less than 10 feet from your subject. We will cover this in depth in an upcoming tutorial. Side-by-side configurations force the use of longer lenses which flatten the 3D effect.

Can I change the interaxial while shooting?
Yes, the sliders on the Robert Rig allow you to either lock them in place or move during shooting. The scales on top and rear also allow you to hit your marks precisely.
