Hollywood is going 3D! Join the revolution with this primer to all of the essential skills for live action 3D, from preproduction through distribution. 3D perception and science is presented in an accessible way that provides the principles of Stereoscopic vision you need to make the transition from the 2D world. Tools of the trade are enumerated with an eye on current constraints and what is coming down the pike to smooth the way. Step-by-step instructions detail how 3D processes affect every stage of the production including screenwriting, art direction, principle photography, editing, visual effects and distribution. The companion DVD includes an array of 2D and 3D images that demonstrate concepts and techniques, 3D movie shorts that showcase alternative techniques, After Effects project files to explore and manipulate for effect, and a resource list of software tools and tutorials that demonstrate techniques.
The DVD is not included with the E-book. Please contact the publisher for access to the DVD content by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Even at that, there is lots of great information to get even a novice thinking in 3D.

It has been most helpful in getting my first S3D conversion of my movie "Fastback" started.
By now, maybe a little dated, but a very comprehensive book.
Practical tips and therefor not only a collection of theory but also usable!
