2D to 3D conversion - Proposal

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, April 9, 2018 Under: proposals
Hey all!

I had the amazing priviledge of being able to write another proposal on Right-Click Select! Shockingly, I didn't actually blog about it, so that is what this is! Yay, hahaha!

So the basic idea is that you use the existing depth information (mist pass) to slice up the scene in as many slices as possible, causing something like this:



This means that you can now shift these slices and create what your eyes will see. I was extremely opposed to it, but it actually does make more sense to do two angles, because the distortion is less per eye, but what makes this proposal so great is that it should give such amazing results that it will not really be needed to do two (hopefully).

The difficulty with 3D rendering is that it takes twice as long as normal renders. You have two eyes, therefore you need to images per frame in order to have a 3D frame. These differ slightly on a horizontal offset. That offset means that certain objects are occluded in one frame, yet visible in another - hello conversion's biggest problem; holes!!



The proposal has a very unique solution to this problem, but in order to find that out, I want you to go check out the proposal! haha.

The best part about this whole thing is that it doesn't take as long as true 3D rendering, requires only some clever programming, testing and it can be applied to VR as well (had to test that in a clever way - again go check out the proposal! haha).

In conclusion, to get this feature implemented (reducing 3D render times by roughly 45-48%), it needs to be upvoted and I mean by plenty! So far I have only 3 points on it and we need a lot more to get proper attention.

So again, here is the link, so go check it out!!

Also, you want to see what it looks like, so here's the example image - Red/Cyan anaglyph glasses required.

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen." Revelation 22:18-21
