Using Z-depth or disparity to align masks in stereoscopic composition?

Hi! I am looking for a way to use Z-depth (cg render) or the generated disparity map to align masks in my stereoscopic compositions. I'm thinking there must be a way to only draw masks on one eye, with the help of Z depth or the generated disparity to align the mask for the other eye once it is set on one of them. Any ideas? Thanks

:shock:

I've not done any disparity work in Fusion, but I think you can use New Eye to do that. Use a ChannelBooleans to make an image containing your mask in one of the color channels and the disparity in the disp channels, and feed that to New Eye.
