 Adding IPTC and XMP to ExifTool section   PatchesRips   2022年6月7日(火) 8:00     Mail
Muttyan, I've been working with your excellent application for many years. I'm using a Fujifilm W1 and two W3s to take photographs of areas around me in transition for eventual accrual to the provincial archives. As part of that, I use StereoPhoto Maker to split the MPO files in case MPOs aren't still a "thing" in the future, and because PhotoMechanic, which I use to add GPS and keyword data to the images, doesn't work with MPO files. But it occurred to me today that, having added that info to the JPGs, I could use StereoPhoto Maker to recreate MPOs that have GPS and keyword information embedded in them too. Unfortunately, while the GPS information makes the journey, the keyword information does not, and the IPTC and XMP subsections of the ExifTool section gets stripped off in the writing of the MPO file. I've tested this on MyFinePix Studio, and it does write those subsections in; however, it will only create MPOs one pair of JPGs at a time. It would take me weeks of tedious work to do it that way. I was wondering if it might be possible for you to add support for the IPTC and XMP subsections into the ExifTool section in an upcoming point upgrade. In any case, thank you so much for the wonderful work you do. You make so much possible.

 Sorry for my one more additional question   Gungun   2022年5月16日(月) 5:40     Mail
Hi everyone!

Recently I have purchased a 3D digital video camera named HDR-TD10.
I would like to show my 3D video to my friends who have not a 3D television.
So I am try to convert it’s video format from flame packing to anaglyph.
However I can not find a appropriate converter of Hardware or Software.

From now on I found a Hardware named VC-7063 stereo composer, however it’s already stoping the manufacturing and also I have never found it’s old one.

And as a Software I found a SPM Pro, however it’s likely to work only on MAC OS.
I am try to search one which can run on Windows10.

Anyway, if possible please let me know some appropriate Software which can convert it on Windows10.

If the Software is for profit, it’s also OK!

I would like to say thank you for your support in advance!!

I don't know what kind of file it is because I don't have HDR-TD10.
You may be able to convert it to an SBS MP4 file with "StereoMovieAlign".
If it is an SBS MP4, You can play the video in anaglyph in my web app.
Send me a short video file you shot with the HDR-TD10 and I'll see if i can convert it and play it back!

Hi Masuji-san!

Thanks to your great support in advance!!

To say a long story short, I will get the HDR-TD10 today.

So as you say, I would like to send you a sample of the video soon.

Thanks great !!

I want to take out each frame of a movie to make a depth map, and then generate 3D images of each frame (left and right), and then put such 3D images together to generate 3D video.

Now I have 2D images and depth maps of each frame. I hope to generate 3D images in batches with stereophoto maker, but I can't find the corresponding options. I guess stereophoto maker may not have this function yet, so I suggest you add this function to the software. If stereophoto maker already has such a function, please give me some instructions on how to operate it~

Translated by software so please make allowance for any mistakes

Although a bit tricky, the following method can be used to batch convert a 2D+Depth map to a 3D image.
1. create a 3D image from a 2D+Depth map
Edit->Depth map->Crate 3D image from 2D+Depth map
(The settings at this time are used for the batch conversion.)

2. "3D Conv" option will appear in the batch conversion dialog, check it and batch convert.
File->Multi job->Multi Conversion

 Can't open images as color anaglyph in multi-conversion mode   Kim Scarborough   2022年5月15日(日) 16:05     Mail

When I open an image in "Open Stereo Image", I have the option to open it as "Anaglyph (color)", which is what I need. But in "Multi Conversion", the input file type only has "Anaglyph", which corresponds to "Anaglyph (greyscale)". Can "Anaglyph (color)" be added as an input file option in Multi Conversion?

    Masuji Suto   2022年5月16日(月) 7:29    [Edit]
While technically possible, it is difficult to add more options to the dialog.
I have not received any such requests from others.
Can you please email me and let me know your purpose?

 Additional comment regarding my question   Gungun   2022年5月16日(月) 3:09     Mail
Sorry for my wrong question.
To say it correctly, I would like to know if SPM Pro can work on Windows10 or not ?

I am waiting for your kindly reply.

 Manual alignment with 1 click   Igor   2022年5月9日(月) 15:35     Mail
Manual alignment is usually done by a certan point. I take a look at the image, considering the zero point with no parallax and then move sliders so that red and blue contours came into b/w in the point i want. So it would be great to make a one-click alignment. I click on the point of an image i want to have zero parallax and the program makes required adjustments. I think it is possible. Auto alignment does not give such option.

Thank you for your site and your soft, i use it for years and very pleased with your high-quality work. Keep on going!

 Output formats for VR   Brandon Kipp   2022年3月18日(金) 11:23     Mail

First, thank you so much for making SPM!!! I can't believe this is free and I'm so happy I found it.

I'm looking for advice on how to format stereo photos with SPM such that they could be viewed in stereo on a VR headset. Is there a VR viewer (I have an Oculus, but I can access others) for stereo photos and what kind of format do you think those types of viewers would support?

I'm working on turning my grandfathers stereo photos (about 4600 slides) into a VR stereo photo library that the rest of his grandkids can view. I have already scanned all of the photos with a stereo slide scanner (I'm starting with his slides) and I have uploaded left and right photos to google photos.

I have downloaded SPM and figured out how to make the basic things work - I can make a stereo slide in various formats, but I'm not really sure how I could present this in a VR format. Any help is much appreciated.

My grandpa was a huge stereo photography buff - he had hundreds of cameras and always had one on him. Just to give you an idea of what he took: here is one of the google photo albums with the left-right photos in it (I have them organized on my hard drive in left-right folders):

And here is a spreadsheet listing all of the albums that I have scanned and uploaded:

I realize there will be some post-processing to do to make these into clean stereo photos, but I'm up for it, and my family supports me in this.

My uncle is a programmer and says that if I need to write a VR viewer for stereo photos he will help me.

Thank you again.

My suggestion is joining the Photo-3D mailing list forum and post your questions there. You can find the list's web page here:

The list has over 2,000 members with a wide variety of experience with photographic 3D images, slide scanning, and VR. It looks like you are off to a great start.

I hope it is okay to post this here in reply to the question for a virtual reality image viewer for the Meta Quest and Quest 2. We are developing such an app and have just recently released it. It supports loading MPO-files and various VR180 and VR360 formats:

 Multiple lines of text?   allen lutins   2022年4月1日(金) 9:33     Mail
It would be nice to be able to enter a carriage return (say, CTL-ENTER or ALT-ENTER) to easily add multiple lines of text using the "Add Text" tool!

 Crash when saving   Bernie Roehl   2020年12月16日(水) 7:11     Mail
Everything's working great -- I can create beautiful anaglyph images, and view them within StereoPhoto Maker.

However, when I try to save the image, SPM crashses. :-(

I've tried both the 64 and 32 bit versions, with a variety of images.

In case it's a memory issue... the images are about 1500 by 1500 pixels, and I've tried resizing them to 1024 in SPM. Same result.

I'm running 64-bit Windows 10.

I use StereoPhoto Maker almost every day and have never encountered such a problem. Also, I have never been notified of such issues by other people.

    Masuji Suto   2020年12月16日(水) 18:23    HP [Edit]
I don't know the cause, but maybe the registry is corrupted.
Could you try Menu -> Help -> Remove All Registry Entries to clear the registry, and then try the same operation?

I use StereoPhoto Maker daily on several computers and have never had a crash.
Could you please check on another PC ?
If the crash is caused by a specific operation, please let me know what that operation is.
