Avatar: The Way of Water Trailer playing in BigScreen VR Media Player (Steam version) via VLC in HSBS format, being converted to 3D in real-time by Stream to 3D

Stream to 3D has been conceived as a light-weight solution to run alongside PCVR media players that take the PC screen as video input for 3D rendering. See Stream to 3D in use with BigScreen VR (Steam Version) below:

Although providing the unique capability of fully automatic real-time video conversion to 3D, Stream to 3D also provides state-of-the art off-line conversion of 2D video to 3D, either one video at a time or in batch mode. Batch mode supports conversion of multiple videos in parallel, limited only by machine resources. You can also watch on-the-fly converted video whilst off-line conversion is conducted in the background, assuming the host machine has sufficient resources.

To obtain the clearest idea of the quality of the conversion solution, you can download full resolution versions of the 3D converted "Avatar: The Way of Water Trailer" and "Pacific Rim" in different formats and at different frame rates from here.

3D output is generated at 24 FPS by default, but 3D output frame rates at up to 120 FPS can be selected, with a range of standard frame rates in between; 30, 48 and 60. Frame rate conversion is a resource intensive activity, but on a modest 3060 GPU based laptop, it is possible to achieve real-time conversion frame rates of 48 FPS on 1080p input with HSBS 3D output. Obviously, unless you have a beast of a machine, the higher frame rates would be more appropriate to apply in off-line conversion.

Stream to 3D also supports generation of a wide range of different 3D output formats with Out-of-the-box preset configurations for BigScreen (Steam VR) and Virtual Desktop. You can also establish your own configurations for specific scenarios. All settings are fully customisable through the UI and the configurations can be saved and reloaded as required.
