Paper Abstract

The increasing popularity for stereoscopic content in the entertainment industry and computer graphics applications and the availability of affordable capture and display systems is in contrast to the actual knowledge of underlying stereoscopic design principles and fundamental concepts. Content creators and educators inexperienced in stereoscopy require integrated, easy to use and flexible tools which can assist in the process of creating the three-dimensional "look" they are after within the limits of a comfortable viewing experience. The proposed framework in this paper, a custom stereoscopic export plug-in for the popular 3D modeling application Google Sketchup and a flexible stereoscopic format conversion and display engine, allows for stereoscopic previsualisation in near real-time in a format of choice. The user interface can recommend stereoscopic settings according to the scene, camera and display properties, calculates corresponding values according to manual entries but also leaves unrestricted control over all parameters. The display engine allows for different stereoscopic formats to be shown and saves the result in form of images with metadata for reference. Particular attention is put on usability, accessibility and tight integration.
