Amsterdam, IBC 2011: September 7, 2011… eyeon Software Inc. today announced eyeon Dimension ™, a Supercomputing Optical Flow-based toolset developed to comprehensively address the challenges of today’s Stereoscopic 3D workflow.
eyeon Dimension is a new technology that has been in development for approximately two years, offering stereo production facilities the ability to achieve essential image estimation techniques quickly and cost effectively. With a number of feature films taking Dimension from proof-of-concept to production proven, the focus has been to solve a number of real world S3D production complications:
- § Polarization color differences from mirror rigs
- § Defocus differences from two cameras
- § Timing sync differences between two cameras for temporal consistency
- § Alignment tools
- § Re-convergence and eye separation generation
- § Interaxial shifting
- § Replacement of missing frames
- § Disparity generation
- § Disparity to Depth and Depth to Disparity transformations
Accurate S3D duplicates the binocular view of the human visual system, representing points visible to the left and right eye. Looking at how Fusion’s OpenCL development has significantly improved production turnaround times, Dimension promises to deliver yet another innovative and highly efficient technology from eyeon.
“Good S3D is not only what we experience in the real world. It can be an effect as well. My work bridges the two worlds of creativity and repair work. Creativity uses the 3rd dimension to enhance the story and repair involves fixing problems inherited from the set. The repair aspect can include stereo misalignment, colour mismatch, the now famous polarization issues, and endless rig wiggling. Dimension’s OpenCL toolset allows me to deal with all of these things in a very timely and accurate manner.”
~ Clark Graff, Visual Effects Supervisor
