ViewPoint 3D software enables real-time glasses free 3D graphics presentations
ViewPoint 3D Designer 1.0, currently in its first iteration, is able to run on low powered computers. The demo shown to 3D Focus was running on an ATOM processor and regular PC.
The interface is relatively simple and includes pre-built objects, textures, shaders, lighting effects etc. It has been built in C++ from the ground up with the intention to create a 3D version of PowerPoint. The system can incorporate RSS feeds and display 2D photos and videos on 3D objects. Main applications are expected to be digital signage and presentations.
ViewPoint have partnered with glasses free 3D display specialists Dimenco to show how the software can work on autostereo screens. To render the image in a suitable format for such a screen, the software splits the image into four quadrants at sixty frames per second – The full cour image, a 2D + depth map, the full colour background and the 2D + depth map of the background (the latter two quadrants enable the ‘look around’ effect). These images are interlaced and the Dimenco screen render 28 viewpoints. ViewPoint 3D is also in discussions with other autostereoscopic display manufacturers for potential partnerships.
ViewPoint 3D Designer is currently available for a special price of £254.00 + VAT until May 31st.
