Is there any software that is able to make a depth map for a video and export it to .s3d format?

enter image description here

Similar to this photo but I need to make a video.

I found this one but not sure which suite of the apps is suitable http://www.yuvsoft.com/

I can not give you any tutorial because it is a little complex.

This is a function that you can google using this terms:



Some aplications have it, even blender. So add the term "blender"


So you will get a 3D point cloud.

Then you need to convert it into a mesh and using the calculated camera position you could generate a render using that data.

The tools you linked gives you a shortcut to that process.


The previows text is an alternative method.

Here is a free software. I have not tested it yet. http://3dstereophoto.blogspot.mx/p/software.html


  • Thanks for your quick reply but I tried to search with your keywords, then I don't get the depth map result. I guess it is nothing to to do with 3d rendering, it is a type of stereo 2d to 3d conversion using depth map. My problem is i don't know which software can output the video with left side is normal color and right side is black and white channel for 3D definition.

  • A depth map is used in 3D rendering. The point here is how to extract the 3D data. That is using point cloud data.
