Broken, a Short Computer Animated Movie in Stereo 3D Format

November 9th, 2010 · 10 Comments · 3D Movies & Videos


Broken is a story of two Robots living behind a television screen. When the big screen accidentally gets destroyed by a loose pipe they get confronted with the world outside. This does not only bring the excitement of new freedom, but comes with unsuspected dangers as well. The short movie was created by Stefan Voigt together with David Shelton and Stefan Weinberg at the FH Mainz, Germany (2008/2009) using the following software products: 3ds Max, Maya, After Effects & Photoshop. The stereoscopic 3D version available for download is in Side by Side format, 720p full resolution, and there is also another a version available for watching online on YouTube 3D. As usual don’t forget to leave your comments if you download and watch the video…

    My Nvidia 3D Vision video player couldn’t render the file. It said that some codec MIGHT be missing? I can sure play anything else on my very so much software-updated computer. Everything from wav and mp3 to x264 in mkv-containers.

    Does anyone know if there is a better version of this movie; the encoding artefacts are pretty bad, and certainly negate any gain in horizontal resolution made with the full side-by-side packing format.

    Ok, the vertically stacked version (available from here http://www.svoigt.net/index.php/broken ) is a wmv (which should play easier for those having problems with the H263 MOV) is 8500Kbps (much better than the 2958Kbps MOV), but is 1280×1440, so is in frame-compatible format. I think the difference is huge, with the wmv being much better… you judge! ;)

    Jonathan, thanx for the link although I couldn’t find the file for download anywhere on that site?

    Jonathan, your link doesn’t work, I get 404 error page.

    When I realize the extension was .mov I was kind afraid it would not play in my 3DTV and also stereoscopic and Nvidia player. I guess by reading your comments it doesn’t. I’m downloading this and will try it anyway.

    This .mov extension is Apple propretary format, it only plays in itunes and quicktime, but for 3D, I really would like to know what software can play this in 3D. I swear I’ve never seen a .mov file in 3D, cause Apple is not aiming for 3D at the moment, so why the hell this 3d video is using their extension?

    The Mov is just a file container, inside it you can have H.264 compressed video too, you just need to have a MOV splitter installed… ;)

    Here is a direct link for the other version: http://www.svoigt.net/userupload/movies/projects/broken/download/broken_stacked_vertical_david_shelton_stefan_voigt.wmv

    Watched it on YouTube. Nicely done.

    I got the anaglyph version downloaded few months earlier, but it has the same artifacts. Looks like it was de-interlaced from original interlaced version.
    One other defect is that the depth is distorted heavily.
