Ztring Theory – An Experimental Stereoscopic 3D Short Film

October 12th, 2010 · 14 Comments · 3D Movies & Videos

Here is an interesting experimental stereoscopic 3D short film from 2009 made by a Norwegian company called Chiptoons. It seems more like a strange music video, but fun to watch at least once, although the depth effect could’ve been a better. The video is in Side by Side format with Right Image First, 1080p half horizontal resolution (squashed), so you will have to select 16:9 aspect ratio when opening it. The video is also available on YouTube 3D. As usual don’t forget to share your comments if you watch the video…

    There are many excellent 3d videos available from this site, but how am I to watch them on my 3D tv.

    If your 3D TV can play them directly over USB flash drive or HDD for example you just need to copy them and play them on the TV, then selecting the right 3D mode from the TV as mentioned in the video description. If not, you need to connect the 3D HDTV to your computer and use a video player to play them, some of them might work with normal video player and selecting the right 3D mode on the TV and for others you might need the Stereoscopic Player. Third alternative for using a PC is if you have 3D Vision and a compatible Nvidia video card – you may try using the beta of 3DTV Play software included in the latest 260.63 beta drivers and use the 3D Vision Video Player.

    Thanks, using one of the methods you describe, I should be able to watch this one in side-by-side, 960x1080px2. Are any of the clips capable of being played in/via the 3D standards set forth by the people behind blu-ray discs. (This is likely the best the TV is capable of displaying). E.g., I found a video some pages back which exploits youtube’s 4k resolution to do full 3D for 1080p. Now, if this video were 24fps, then it would be conceivably straightforward to output it according to the bluray standard for this. Would the software you mention, such as that accompanying a compatible Nvidia video card, be able to accept input and then output according to standard? The other bluray standard is for 720px2 at 60Hz. Are there any videos that would, similarly, conform to this?

    Really cool video clip :D

    JoDo , it is not a Blu-ray standard, it is the HDMI 1.4(a) specifications defined for stereoscopic 3D transmission used for 3D HDTVs. They are limited to 1080p 24fps (Blu-ray 3D) and 720p 50/60 fps (3D gaming), the 3D TV Play software is outputting the 3D content complying to these specs.

    not good im dizzi after watch this

    Bloody, it’s in both. There are two I mentioned, note, you mentioned a third, which is not applicable to most US current-gen 3Dtvs; these three are available in the blu-ray standard. The HDMI specification lists a bunch of additional formats, including those three, however, current-gen 3Dtvs are unlikely to support many of these standards. (Even the primary 3D standards are in doubt.) This is probably why, based on your description, the 3D TV Play software is currently complying to only these types. So, anyway, I have found another video on this site that would be applicable, it is a music video with 720px2 at 30fps. Basically, I’m looking for software, perhaps 3D TV Play, that will take these clips and then appropriately play them according to one of the two standards, so I don’t have to recreate the clips myself. These ‘mandatory standards’ would likely be the best the TV is likely capable of playing.

    To clear up some confusion, when I say blu-ray standard, I mean the output specification it conforms to. I’m not saying it has to conform to the additional restrictions, such as being encoded in MPEG-4 MVC. Basically, for example, I want to download venemon’s linked 4K youtube video ( MPEG4 Video (H264) 4096×2304 24.00fps [Video]) and output it as a 1080px2 (frame packed) at 24Hz. Unfortunately, it seems more and more to me that this may not be possible easily. E.g., how would the program detect and chop videos with these, only approximately standardized, resolutions? Simlarly, the karate stunt 3D video, (Video: MPEG4 Video (H264) 2520×710 29.97fps [Video]), would be at 720px2 at 59.94Hz

    Is there a utility that can convert a standard 3D Model or animation into a video format compatible with 3D tv’s?

  • 10 Bloody // Oct 14, 2010 at 19:40

    You can render the 3d model or animation in stereo 3D format with the program they were designed to be used in, like 3DS max for example. You can do that with the help of a virtual stereo 3D camera rig for left/right frame rendering…

    I’m having trouble viewing this video and the tron legacy trailer, it says i dont have the right codec? Any ideas?

  • 12 Bloody // Oct 17, 2010 at 18:38

    Well you might want to install a codec pack like K-lite to ensure yiu have all the needed codecs installed and also check the options of the player to see if the format you have problems with has a properly selected codec that is available in the system.

    I can play this video in my Samsung 3D Plasma TV choosing side-by-side 3D layout. But I have to go to picture correction for 3D and swap sides to get the right 3D effect. Pretty cool video though.

    this is really good. one of the best of 3d i have seen
