Description

Dimension is eyeon Software's latest technology developed to solve intricate stereoscopic production issues.   Dimension is comprised of an advanced optical flow-based toolset that offers facilities the ability to achieve essential image estimation techniques quickly and cost effectively.

With a number of feature films taking Dimension from proof-of-concept to production proven, the technical focus has been to solve a number of real world S3D production complications.

 


Features 

Stereo Tools

Dimension is comprised of an advanced disparity mapping toolset that offers facilities the ability to achieve essential image manipulation in real 3D space. The ability to go beyond simple transforms, the disparity set of tools allows for independent control over the left and right eye, and to adjust convergence and eye separation in real 3D.   

 

Highlighted Stereo 3D Solutions for:

  • Polarization/color differences from mirror rigs
  • Defocus differences between two cameras
  • Timing sync differences between two cameras for temporal consistency
  • Alignment reparation
  • Re-convergence and eye separation
  • Interaxial shifting
  • Missing frames replacement
  • Disparity generation
  • Disparity to Depth and Depth to Disparity transformations

 

Flow Tools

Dimension optical flow tools analyze sequence of images and will repair frames, remove scratches and dust, and smooth color variations and grain, and so much more.

With a number of feature films taking Dimension from proof-of-concept to production proven, the technical focus has been to solve a number of real world S3D production complications.

Optical Flow tooling:

  • Slow motion retiming of footage
  • Non-linear timing of footage
  • Sub frame time offseting
  • Removal of scratches and dust from frames
  • Repair of damaged or missing frames
  • Smoothing of color exposure fluctuations
  • Grain reduction
  • Adding motionblur and vector effects


Production Proven

With numerous shots already delivered for several feature films, Dimension hits the production ground running.   Developed in a full working environment under deadline conditions, Dimension's specific toolset has solved many unique stereo challenges.
eyeon delivers the next must-have "Fix-it-in-post" software.

Specifications & Licensing

System Requirements

Operating Systems

  • Windows XP (32 / 64 bit), Vista (32 / 64 bit), NT 4 and 2000
  • Linux (32 / 64 bit): Fedora, Redhat, Centos and Suse

Available under subscription, this gives the option to run Fusion on multiple distributions of Linux and on Windows in 64-bit or 32-bit configurations. Fusion’s Unified Platform System is universally compatible across operating systems, and facilities can choose what pipeline set-up works While running Fusion on Linux, pipelines and technical directors can take advantage of the following:

1.        New installers that support all Linux versions, including Fedora, Redhat, Centos and Suse

2.        Headless render node for render farms

3.        Mixed operating system configurations

4.        Native Hybrid CPU/GPU hardware setups

5.        Universal plug-in support


Hardware requirements

Multiprocessor computers are highly recommended due to the tremendous benefit obtained from Fusion's highly tuned multi-threaded architecture.

If you intend to work with video resolutions only, then you can probably get away with 256MB of ram for most tasks, though we would highly recommend 512MB. If you intend to deal with film resolution images you should consider a minimum of 1GB of RAM. You will probably end up wanting more. Can you use less RAM? Certainly, but the less RAM you have the more likely you are to start hitting the disk based virtual ram during complex composites and effects. This will impact heavily on your performance, both interactively and while rendering. When the swap file is in use, 90% of your CPU power will simply be wasted. With the current RAM prices on the market we definitely recommend as much as you can afford on your machine.

Fusion is a 2D/3D application, and there is an advantage gained from an Open GL accelerator card. 3D software packages like XSI, Maya, Max and LightWave also rely on the graphics card performance.

Choose a card with at least 128MB of RAM, one that is capable of a minimum resolution of 1280x1024. Fusion's ability to playback images from RAM will benefit enormously from an PCI-E based video card as well.

This is a native development for all Intel and AMD x86 CPU's and Nvidia, AMD/ATI GPU computer systems on Linux. The Unified Platform System brings cross platform compatibility for mixed OS environments with the broadest support of plug-ins, services, peripherals and network infrastructure.
