Is there any software available (preferred open-source) to make 3D images with a normal laptop webcam? By 3D I mean Anaglyph 3D Images and not 3D models.

Please add a comment if any other information is needed.

Update: I have tried TriDef 3D, Anamaker 3D, Archsoft Media Converter and 4Media 2D to 3D converter. But these just din't work for me. I would prefer an open-source app but I was not able to find even a single open-source app. Please suggest me a good app (Hopefully open-source but not important).

What are you taking photos/video of? If it's static scenes then you've got no hope - unless you move the laptop. –  ChrisF Jul 17 '12 at 14:39
I am taking pictures of Objects such like a mug, Tablet, and some other things. I can move the Laptop. –  Akshat Mittal Jul 17 '12 at 14:41
Well, have you looked for anaglyph software already? There's a couple of programs out there. stereoscopy.com/downloads –  slhck Jul 17 '12 at 14:52
I haven't looked for any software except of TriDef 3D, can you suggest any more. –  Akshat Mittal Jul 17 '12 at 14:53
You need to try some tools yourself please and do a little research effort. Product recommendations are off-topic, so please show us which tools you've tried and why they didn't work for you, or if you have any concrete problems using one of these. Thanks. –  slhck Jul 17 '12 at 14:55
