Star Wars Saga 3D Conversion (* files are password protected - no known password *)
Time

Ik its very simple, the technique used in the shot you showed of chewie uses a conversion process which takes information from the frames each side of the one being processed and uses it in the same maner for the whole image... This early type of conversion makes panning static objects into 3D ones because the program utilizes the object with the most motion as its point of reference.

Although this works it can be very confusing to the eye.

The trick is to take information away thus reducing processing time, simple techniques like adding a slight motion blur then using a sharpening tool to re-enhance the trailing side of an object can artificially create the illusion of an object being layerized.

The layers can be cropped to give depth of field to the whole scene

Then a subtle layer depth can be achieved using focal effects and motion sensing 

Note the highly crystalized trailing edge of objects in the left hand image make the frame look like it's layers are offset...

Thank you for recommending that I hook up with that other guy wanting to spend 200 bucks converting a 4:3 vhs to a upscaled 16:9 1080I and then converting to 3d.

 

But a bit late now unfortunately :)

The pictures I included were still shots to show it is NOT converted using Motion sensing technology alone, This type of motion sensing conversion you speak of just gives you a nausious feeling and the 3D is very confusing

Just look at the helmet of the actor stood to the right of Chewie in your motion tracked 3d pic, the 3d is back to front and very confusing as it has added motion to a static object...  This is nothing like mine

 

The versions I grabbed were a nice set of 720p .HDTV.x264.mkv files6.5GB-8Gb VIDEO-TS file ready for playback in Side By Side mode on a modern tv , it has the dolby 6.1 track added as well :)

Yes I see this whole thread needs moving to the fan edit page, I have links to these movies via Megaupload which is free...

 

They are watchable in anaglyph using a pair of red / cyan glasses or as a 50% SBS on a new 3D compatable TV set swiched to SBS mode using the LCD Glasses...

The picture could be better, these are Hi-def 50% SBS Widescreen 8GB DVD quality conversions.

This is converted using proprietary 3d conversion software, as well as sensing motion 3d it contains objective memory and transitional software which the 2d-3d converters in the tv sets don't have.

A conversion like this takes a computer with awesome graphics handling and a gaming rating of 9.4 over 6 hours to process 6gb of data. Properly done in widescreen with the audio synced perfectly and prepared as a 50% sbs then uploaded takes over 2 days to do.

These are for the people who ENJOY CONVERSIONS.

I have all 6 Star Wars movies as 3D Widescreen conversions in 50% SBS format and Anaglyph 3-D …

I’m sure they will be of interest to someone here.

 

2020 Mod Edit: Although this 3D project was apparently finished… the files are password protected - and the password(s) remains unknown.

Neptune remains incommunicado (since late 2013) - and so there is no opportunity to view this project.
