Anaglyph 3D is the stereoscopic 3D effect achieved by means of encoding each eye’s image using filters of different (usually chromatically opposite) colors, typically red and cyan. Anaglyph 3D images contain two differently filtered colored images, one for each eye. When viewed through the “color-coded” “anaglyph glasses”, each of the two images reaches the eye it’s intended for, revealing an integrated stereoscopic image. The visual cortex of the brain fuses this into the perception of a three-dimensional scene or composition.

Our Topic
Intro to Microsoft Teams – learn how to make collaboration with SharePoint easier”

We clarified the confusion many have about the difference between Microsoft Teams and SharePoint. If you ever wonder if you “Should use Teams or SharePoint” or if you “Should store files in Teams or SharePoint,” this TechKey Cafe answered those questions.

First off, Microsoft Teams and SharePoint are two, totally different platforms. So the comparison between the two is not accurate. It is like comparing apples and oranges. To clarify the difference between Microsoft Teams and SharePoint, the speakers explained what each one is, and offered ‘how to do it’ and recommended professional training options for you.
