The Short Version:


I used to lurk here in the old days now it seems I only get on here for announcements smile.png


I recently opensourced my stereo conversion app (it was sitting on a drive, rotting away), I'm not much into game development these days, but I expect that some here will be into the 2d/3d conversion part..


Here is the formal text I would normally spam you with smile.png


Gimpel3D 2D/3D Stereo Conversion software is now opensource.


Developed by René Gimpel (an independent stereo researcher) between 2008 and 2011, Gimpel3D is recognized for its advanced modeling features not seen in similar programs (including commercial packages at the time of release).

Since the original freeware release, many of the ideas presented in G3D have become standard features in commercial software. As a result, there is no significant advantage to developing G3D as a stand-alone proprietary solution, although the codebase makes a nice platform for future research and experimentation.

René Gimpel has released all source code for G3D under the GPL so that other stereo researchers, hobbyists, and/or professionals can build upon his existing work, and integrate/test new capabilities using the projective modeling environment.

Additional details available at:




I'll be cleaning up the codebase for others to get into in the near future (it's a big scary beast), but the whole project is available for anyone that wants to mess with it..


I welcome any and all feedback or questions smile.png
