https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3D_film :
The most common approach to the production of 3D films is derived from
stereoscopic photography. In this approach, a regular motion picture camera
system is used to record *the images as seen from two perspectives (or
computer-generated imagery generates the two perspectives in
post-production)*, and special projection hardware or eyewear is used to
limit the visibility of each image to the viewer's left or right eye only.
