Pantarheon 3D AviSynth Toolbox For Working with Stereo 3D Videos

July 23rd, 2010 · No Comments · Other S3D Tech

Lately there were a lot of questions for AviSynth scripts to do some of the things already possible with the use of already available scripts (one needs time to write and test AviSynth scripts), and there is no need to write scripts to do something if it has already been done and available as a convenient plugin. So here comes the Pantarheon 3D AviSynth Toolbox written by Adam Stanislav is a free set of scripted functions for AviSynth that can greatly help anyone working with different kinds of stereoscopic 3D videos. You need to be a bit familiar with the free tool AviSynth in order to be able to use this toolbox as it is being installed in the form of a plugin, so you basically just need to know the names of the functions and what parameters they accept in order to be able to use them from your own AVS scripts.

The Toolbox contains a number of basic functions which allow you to multiplex the left and right views found in two separate videos into one video, using several of the common methods currently in use. There are also four basic types of anaglyphs supported, made possible by the MergeRGB function built into AviSynth and these are: black and white anaglyph, red/cyan, green/magenta and yellow/blue. The Pantarheon 3D AviSynth Toolbox not only lets you combine two videos into one 3D video, it also makes it possible for you yo extract the left or the right view from anything created with the Basic Functions into a 2D video. The Toolbox also contains various functions to convert among the various types of 3D formats. One interesting thing about the Pantarheon 3D AviSynth Toolbox is that it even has support for output according to the stereo 3D specifications defined in the HDMI v.1.4a format.

Fujifilm HD 3D Player HDP-L1 for FinePix REAL 3D W1 Cameras

April 22nd, 2010 · 11 Comments · Shooting in 3D

It seems that Fujifilm is continuing to enhance its 3D product line, as after the launch of the 3D consumer camera FinePix REAL 3D W1 and the 3D photo frame FinePix REAL 3D V1, the company has just announced another 3D-capable product. Fujifilm HD Player HDP-L1 is a 3D-capable photo and video player that can play content from SD/SDHC flash cards like the ones used in the REAL 3D W1 digital cameras (the player can also work with other non-3D Fuji digital cameras). The HDP-L1 player has an HDMI video output and can be connected directly to one of the new 3D-capable HDTVs and over HDMI and play back 3D content in 720p Side by Side format, either video in AVI format or 3D photos in MPO format (used by the W1 camera). This new product will allow you to easily view the 3D photos and videos on a larger screen than only on the small screen of the camera or on the slightly bigger V1 photo frame. So far the Fujifilm HD Player HDP-L1 has been announced only in Japan and the launch date for the product on that market is set for April 27th or in just few days and probably it will not take much time for the product to appear in Europe and America as well as the company’s 3D digital camera is already quite popular all over the world. What do you think about this product, do you think it may be useful, or the idea of having such non-universal solution is not so good?
