Summary:

• Stereoscopic systems present a different image to each eye, using parallax and occlusion revelation for depth perception.
• Anaglyph systems use colored filters with additive complement colors (e.g., red / cyan).
• An object with negative parallax appears as if it is between the viewer and the screen.
• Convergence distance is the distance from the camera to the screen (zero parallax).
• Interaxial distance is the separation between the cameras and affects the stereo 3D effect.

Optional: If you have Red/Cyan anaglyph glasses, watch this scene from House of Wax:

Optional: If you have Red/Cyan anaglyph glasses, watch this video with negative parallax; keep an eye out for when the claw "breaks the frame.":
