Bugfixing trueColor3D, especially for my3D sbs usage

I'm sorry to say, but instead of making the version for Windows and Linux available, I found out about another bug and decided to first fix it.
Therefor, we now have version 0.99 on OSX that you can find here for download.

And, since last week the source code is hosted on the open source sharing/colaboration platform github

got my own my3D today

I finally received my very own Hasbro viewer from the states.Hopefully this will enhance and speed up my work on trueColor3D, the converter tool.I'm rather disappointed by the LCD resolution of my iPod2. It does NOT have retina resolution and all videos and games appear blurred and unsharp.

3D showreel of Pinkau Entertainment on smartphone goggles

With the help of trueColor3D 0.97 on OSX the following variants have been converted and uploaded to vimeo :
for 3D smartphone goggles (like the Hasbro my3D or the TOYin3D)
for tablet devices (like the Apple iPad using an over/under viewer)
for laptops and any normal LCD (also using the over/under method).

Find out more about the german team of Thomas Pinkau.
They also have a Youtube3D upload (unfortunately only a distorted, aka frame compatible version).

I hope to also find trueColor3D versions on Youtube soon.

Puss in boots 3D

I found this on Youtube. It was uploaded by one of the first users of trueColor3D, my open source tool for 3D video clips.
Watch this with your smartphone (iPhone or iPodTouch of generation 4 are best because of their retina display)

Dienstag, 2. August 2011

Visit my openKMQ Blog for details on the new release of trueColor3D that now also supports Apple OSX.

Use this free and open source tool and the open source command line tool ffmpeg to prepare your 3D clips for use with your stereoscopic smartphone viewer.
The results are optimized for use with Hasbro my3D and the spanisch TOYin3D, that not only works with iPhone (4) but also most other smartphones with a high resolution display.

Proposals how to shoot and postprocess for my3D compatible videos

The following two formats are supported by trueColor3D.exe version 0.94 :

I also suggest to use two consumer still/video cameras in portrait mode and to shoot in NTSC-SD/VGA resolution. After proper rotation you then get two images of 480 x 640 px that you can crop to 436 x 640 px and place like this:

First vimeo video to play on Hasbro my3D

Using the guidelines of Christopher Scott Knell from Fireline Studios in Burbank (?), who seems to be the first on Youtube, I added support for my3D to the open source tool trueColor3D.exe.

For now this tool is restricted to the Windows platform, but I plan to port it to OSX and Linux as well.

Beside of the native resolution of Gen 4 devices (960px) it also supports a 1280 x 480px mode to bypass some quirks in vimeo.

Do yourself a favour and don't try to use a non-Retina display.
See my other posts, how to replace the My3D viewer by a cheaper solution for non-Gamers.

Here it's night time, so uploading and posting details about the tools will have to wait.

If you cannot get a my3D, try this 3D-Lorgnette

You normally use a 3D Lorgnette to view stereopairs side-by-side in books that are slightly larger than stereocards. Therefor they not only magnify, but also use prisms to slant your view. If you flip the viewing direction, you can also narrow the view, wich worked fine for me with the iPodTouch Gen2.

Sources in USA :
Berezin, who also sells the KMQ viewer that converts iPad into mobile 3-D cinemas.

Sources in Germany:
3d-foto-shop With a better photo.
And you will also get some at my own shop. I plan to ship them in kits with DIY stands for stereo photobooks and maybe for the iOS as well.

Please comment, tweet (@openMy3D) or email me for other sources to publish here.

Hollywood Pro reviews my3D and creates video optimzed for it

Review on Youtube

When I commented his review and pointed to this open source project, the author blocked me an regarded it as SPAM.
How can I avoid this? Sorry, FireLineStudios, I shouldn't feel like a Spammer.

And here comes the Link to his first My3D optimized FujiW3 video
If you comment, please say hello from pixelpartner.
I will follow his technique how to reformat for my3D in my next release of trueColor3D.

Create stereopairs for my3D

It's a pitty, non-US customers cannot buy my3D viewers yet. But this very interesting DIY hacking blog post helped me a lot to figure out proper image formatting.
