 Automated Videos for LKG Drops   Jared Bienz   2021年12月20日(月) 2:23    HP Mail
Hey there Masuji, thank you for such a wonderful program. I see that you too enjoy Looking Glass Portrait. I'm sure you've probably downloaded hologram drops like the ones here:

Have you noticed the videos of the portrait being turned back and forth? This gives you an idea of what the hologram will look like when put on your display. But these videos take a lot of time to create. One of the people from Looking Glass has to deploy each hologram and then take a video of them panning the Portrait back and forth.

I'm about to start releasing my own hologram drops and I would like to make this process easier for myself and for the Looking Glass employees. I think StereoPhoto Maker can help and I'd like to request a feature.

The feature would basically combine multiple features that SPM already supports into one. The automation would be:

1. Select a folder with a bunch of SBS Color + Depth images.
2. Load each SBS Color + Depth image.
3. Do Edit -> Depth map -> Create multiple images from 2D + depth map.
4. Enable Round trip, Depth map and intelligent F/R position
5. Generate image sequence
6. Convert image sequence to webm video (allow user to specify resolution)
7. Repeat steps 2 through 6 for each SBS image in the folder.

Webm (vp9) is very important because it's like a high-quality animated gif with full color and very small file size. FFMPEG does support this format, it's just not currently an option presented in SPM.

It would also be nice to have a new HTML generator for this under the Web menu. Something like Web -> Make HTML 5 wiggle previews.

What do you think? Would any of this be possible?

Actually, it looks like the Looking Glass website uses webp and not webm for the images. But FFMPEG supports this format too. For example:

ffmpeg -i wig.mp4 -c libwebp -loop 0 wig3.webp

The -loop 0 part is important, so it creates a looping image.

I'm sorry, I've never seen this before.

>Have you noticed the videos of the portrait being turned back and forth?
No, I don't understand what you're talking about.

Unfortunately, I don't understand what you want to do. Can you show me a sample (webp) of the video you want to make?

 StereoAutoAlign for Mac   Bill Costa   2021年11月26日(金) 0:15     Mail
I was very excited to discover the command-line batch alignment program, and even more excited to see that there is a Universal-2 (M1/Intel) macOS version! Unfortunately I ran into a problem right out of the gate. See below for the diagnostics. I'm currently running macOS High Sierra v10.13.6 on an Intel Mac. Thanks!

Usage : StereoAutoAlign [Left image file path] [Right image file path] [Magic Number]
Magic Number -> 0
Left -> ./l.jpg
Right -> ./r.jpg

I don't have High Sierra, so I can't check, but it seems to be a problem with the OS version.
I will try to find a fix.

    Masuji Suto   2021年11月28日(日) 15:07    HP [Edit]
A version compiled with OSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET set to 10.13 has been released for Hight SIerra, please check it.

However, when compiling with 10.13, it seems that parallel processing is no longer possible, and it becomes much slower than the normal version.

Happy to report that High Sierra version works! It may not be as speedy as the parallel processing version, but it still feels pretty quick to me. Thanks!

 SPM on M1 Mac (OS 12 Monterey)?   Chris Dainty   2021年11月26日(金) 18:29     Mail
I have a Mac and currently run SPM Pro 6.02 under CrossOver (20.0.4). It's brilliant, thanks ever so much for this software!

But recently there was a posting on that said:

"I just recently discovered that starting with StereoPhoto Maker (SPM)
v6.17 there is now a standalone command line utility for automatically
aligning a L/R image pair. There is both a Windows and Mac version,
and JPEG, PNG, and TIFF file formats are supported."

Is this true? I cannot find anything on the website that says there is an M1 Mac version of SPM. I'm happy as I am, although reluctant to upgrade to a later version under CrossOver as it took a lot of effort and eventually CodeWeavers did it for me.

    Masuji Suto   2021年11月27日(土) 17:47    HP [Edit]
It's not the Mac version of SPM, it's a console app called StereoAutoAlign.

If you are using SPM with CrossOver, I don't think you need to dare to use it.

 View MPO files with NVIDIA graphics card   Steve Tom   2021年11月26日(金) 4:43     Mail
I find StereoPhoto Maker to be an incredibly powerful and useful tool. I have been using it for years to combine digitized 35mm stereo slides into MPO files to view on my computer or TV, convert digital camera MPO files to side by side images to use with a viewer, etc. I wish I could also use it to view my stereo images. Since NVIDIA dropped support for its stereo viewer, my 3D graphics card, monitor, and active shutter glasses are useless. Can you add support to NVIDIA graphics cards to your program?

    Masuji Suto   2021年11月27日(土) 17:43    HP [Edit]
Is it nVidia 3D Vision?
nVidia no longer supports 3D Vision, but I have confirmed that it will work with SPM if you use the display drivers from when it was supported.

 See Depth Map manipulation in real time   Peter Sinclair   2021年11月6日(土) 17:07     Mail
While working on correcting Depth Maps in SPM, I make a correction and then click Alt + D to see the result as a SBS pair. I then click Z to go back to original + depth map to continue working. Is there a way to see the SBS in real time so that I can work on the orig + Depth map and see the results at the same time as SBS pairs. I have 2 monitors, so ideally I'd have SBS on one and original + depth map on the other so when I make a depth map change I can see it in SBS (or anaglyph?) immediately instead of going back and forth as outlined above. Is this possible?

    Masuji Suto   2021年11月7日(日) 7:48    HP [Edit]
Press Ctrl+Shift+P(Menu->Edit->Depth Map->2D+Depth 3D Photo Preview)
You can see the 3D effect by dragging the mouse.
It's not exactly the same as Alt+D, but you can check the correction.

 Stereo photo maker pro erases file name   John Clement   2021年10月12日(火) 22:42     Mail
If the file type is changed such as to TIF from jpg, SPM pro 64bit erases the file name. SPM 32 bit does not do this. The workaround is to exit the file save window and then do another file save. This then comes up with the file name and the desired file type.
