The guys from RadiantStar – the company that is making the 3Dfier DirectShow filter for realtime 2D to 3D video conversion have just released two new versions of the filter to compliment the already available one that was designed for 3D Vision owners. One is for Passive Polarized Displays like the ones found on Zalman Trimon 3D monitors and Acer Aspire 3D notebooks and the other one is for Anaglyph red-cyan glasses. These two are currently available only as demo versions for personal testing and still are not being sold like the 3D Vision version. Also for these two you don’t need to use a stereoscopic player, you can just use them with a normal video player that can load the required DirectShow filters like Media Player Classic for example. And with the Anaglyph red-cyan glasses demo version there is no time limitation on how long it will play so you can watch whole movies with it.

Good news coming out from Nvidia and Eidos Interactive/ Rocksteady Studios today with the release of a demo version of the upcoming game Batman: Arkham Asylum. Now what is interesting for this title is that it is going to support PhysX, which should be a good one, having in mind that the previous game with PhysX (Terminator) wasn’t very good. But with the demo released today comes another good news and that is that Batman: Arkham Asylum is also 3D Vison Ready, meaning that it should play in Stereo 3D without any major problems and it is supposed to look great (I do hope that it is true). So now you can head over to Nzone to download the 2 gigabyte demo of Batman: Arkham Asylum and try how the games does with both PhysX and 3D Vision. I’m already downloading the demo of the game at the moment and when I have some personal feedback about it and especially on the 3D Vision part I’ll write about it.
Update: Ok, the game is nice… PhysX is not that impressive as I expected, but still adds a nice touch in the atmosphere… now I have much higher expectations when the full game is released. As for 3D Vision readiness… the game looks good with minor to no ghosting at default depth level, but you cannot increase it a lot without having visual problems. More 3D Vision feedback coming a bit later…
