July 23rd, 2012 · No Comments · 3D Movies & Videos

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.

With the help of some simple yet advanced tools you could share photos and videos to social communities or burn them to DVD or Blu-ray Discs for watching them at home. And the new version of the software comes with support for importing, organization and playback of 3D photos and 3D videos (along with the traditional support for 2D media of course). You should also be able to quickly correct and fine tune video and photo imperfections on both 2D and 3D media, create stylish slideshows using 2D or 3D photos, animated text effects and transitions and then burn the finished composition is stereo 3D format as well.

CyberLink’s MediaShow 6 comes in two versions, an Ultra one available for $69.95 USD and a slightly more limited in terms of extra functionality Deluxe version available for $49.95 USD. In the Deluxe version you are not able to edit 3D photos and videos, autoconvert 2D media to 3D and burn 3D DVD/Blu-ray/AVCHD discs, these features are only present in MediaShow 6 Ultra. MediaShow 6 should come with support for the following 3D display solutions: Nvidia 3D Vision, 3D Ready HDTVs, micro-polarizer 3D LCD (passive 3D) as well as anaglyph red/cyan glasses. There is a trial version of the software available, so you can download and try it if you are interested…

On his website Christian Roux provides access to a lot of photographs taken by him from different places around the work and while most of them are in 2D, there are some interesting 3D photos in MPO format also available. The photos are in provided in lower than the original resolution they were shot in and the author is also selling the full resolution versions if you are interested. Some of his 3D photos are also available in anaglyph 3D and there are also some 3D videos available as well, all of them were shot using the Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3.

Visit Christian Roux’s website to see the stereo 3D photos he has shared…
