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.

If you remember at the beginning of this year I’ve written hat the Taiwanese guys from the company RadiantStar are finally going to start selling the 3Dfier 2D to 3D realtime DirectShow transform filter and they just did that. As previously announced the price for a personal license for the filter is $25 USD and you can order through their website, they are using PayPal as a payment processor so you should not have trouble. You should know that the 3Dfier filter can transform 2D video to stereoscopic 3D in real time with the help of the 3D Vision Stereoscopic Player (version 1.5.2 or newer) or the Stereoscopic Player (version 1.5.4 or above). The filter has been made with the 3D Vision owners in mind although it can work for other stereoscopic 3D setups, but you should have in mind that on such you might not get the same effect. Also be warned that the 2D to 3D video conversion does not provide the same result and is not as good as a true 3D video shot in stereoscopic 3D format.
