RMIT3DV is a library of uncompressed stereoscopic 3D HD video available for free download and use under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License, designed to represent a diverse range of content and visual conditions to enable its use in a variety of (research) applications. Currently the library consists of 31 sequences, shots were designed taking into consideration: level of 3D effect, aesthetic composition, variations in colour, environment, motion, and light. The sequences were all filmed at various indoor and outdoor locations around RMIT University and the Melbourne CBD region shot with c HD 3D camera using Blackmagic Hyperdeck Shuttles and Intel SATA3 SSDs (formatted as HFS+) to record the uncompressed video content. Sequences are 1920×1080 HD resolution, 10-bit 4:2:2 YUV at 25 fps. Each clip has an short preview version in anaglyph 3D format and the video itself is available as a separate left and right files in MOV and MP4 format, there is no version of the clips available in single file.
The database is freely available online via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License. This license allows users to utilize the database for commercial and non-commercial purposes, where the content and authors must be credited. Researchers are encouraged to contribute 3D content to grow the resource for the 3D video research community, however, all new content must also carry this same license. Funded by the Smart Services CRC, RMIT3DV is part of a research collaboration between a team of researchers led by Prof. Ian Burnett (School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, RMIT University) and Alex Joseski and Jonathan Burton (Alex and Jono Films) in Melbourne, Australia.
