Where I can get depth maps?
Stereogram Explorer enables create depth maps from imported 3DS model. You need 3D model, open in Stereogram Explorer, set right view angle and scale and your depth map is ready. You can find thousands free models in 3DS format. Another way is find depth maps on Internet or use some rendering application as 3D Studio, Truespace, Anim8or etc.
  
What I need to create animated stereogram?
You only need 3DS model. Load 3DS model, set starting position and select animation properties. Animation will be rendered to AVI file. Now is supported only random-dot rendering. SIS (textured) stereograms are not good for animations. Human brain is not 'ready' for moving objects without textures.
  
What is random-dot stereogram (SIRDS)?

Single Image Random Dot Stereograms - Random dot stereogram is image created from dots. It is older rending method. Random dot stereograms were created from black&white dots. Now are SIRDS colorful. You need only depth map for creating SIRDS. Drawback of random dot stereograms is that 3D shapes are not smooth and there are visible depth layers. Stereogram Explorer corrects this problem with light blur. There is not recommended use this rendering method. If you want to render dot stereogram, use dot texture for SIS method.

   
What is textured (patterned) stereogram (SIS) ?
Single Image Stereograms - Textured stereogram is created from tiled image and depth map. Recommended are asymmetric textures with good contrast and some small objects as stones, balls. You can find many free textures on Internet.
