I Will Include Important Updates In This Post!


**** New Update! 5/02/09 ****

Scroll down to the end of this post for the latest updates!

---------------------

"ColorCode 3-D"
http://www.colorcode3d.com/

http://www.edinformatics.com/news/3D_in_2009.htm

DreamWorks promises that the 3D quality will be better than ever before using Intel InTru 3D and ColorCode 3-D, which updates the old red-blue Anaglyph system. The ColorCode 3D system is a new patented 'cost efficient system' which gives full color reproduction and works on all display types (TV, CRT,LCD and LED)

ColorCode 3-D is sometimes confused with Anaglyph since it uses colored filters in the ColorCodeViewer, however the encoding process is entirely different from the Anaglyph system which is more than 150 years old. The ColorCode 3-D image appears essentially as an ordinary color image with a slightly increased contrast and with distant or sharp edged objects surrounded by faint haloes of golden and bluish tints. When viewed through a ColorCode Viewer the haloes disappear, the color balance is reestablished, and the image is seen in 3-dimensions.


Currently there are two different ways of making your PC games work with this 3D effect and they are either by downloading the old Nvidia 3D stereo driver which would be version 174.76 but it only works for users who have Nvidia graphics cards, or you can download the new iZ3D 1.09 driver which works with both ATI and Nvidia graphics. The drivers mentioned can be found through the following links:

NVIDIA 3D Stereo Driver 174.76
http://downloads.guru3d.com/NVIDIA-3D-Stereo-Driver-174.76-(official)-download-1892.html

iZ3D driver 1.09
http://www.iz3d.com/t-dcdriver.aspx


When you're done installing one of the two drivers then you need to adjust the anaglyph settings in the driver's options to enable a pure yellow color to be displayed on the left side and a pure blue on the right. The settings part can be a bit confusing but the internet can help you there. Once you're done with adjusting the settings then you simply put on your ColorCode 3-D glasses and then start up your favorite PC game to play it with the ColorCode 3-D effect!

The problem is that PJ64 doesn't seem to recognize Nvidia's 3D drivers while most PC games don't have this issue. I haven't tried the iZ3D driver with Project64 yet but I assume that it's not going to work if Nvidia's driver doesn't even work. I will try it though when I have the time.

If anyone has a pair of those ColorCode 3-D glasses lying around from the Superbowl handout then I strongly suggest you folks use them to have a look at some of the examples of pics that are using the ColorCode 3-D format, on this site http://gallery.me.com/csvendb#100424&bgcolor=black&view=mosaic&sel=18.

If you don't have the glasses, then you can find them for pretty cheap on this site http://www.3dstereo.com/viewmaster/gla-cyb.html.

Here are some example pics where the pop out effect is really incredible because these pics are specifically made to work with the ColorCode 3-D format. If you have the glasses then it might make you gasp a bit you if you're new to this.

The snake's pop-out effect in this image is simply amazing IMO, because the snake itself appears to realistically pop-out far through the screen and hover above the text as you're reading it!


---------------------


UPDATES:


Update! 03/26/09

I was able to find an interesting video clip example on www.youtube.com of PC gameplay where the player is actually using the ColorCode 3-D effect with the game.

Left 4 Dead on PC being rendered with ColorCode 3-D,
"Left 4 Dead (PC) DeadAir level1 - 3D colorcode (superbowl glasses) - iZ3D driver 1.09"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ENI7BkK80o4

It's basically set up the same way I use it on my PC except I use Nvidia's 3D driver and that guy uses the iZ3D driver.

I present LoZ MM rendered with photoshop in ColorCode 3-D! Enjoy!

This definitely gives an awesome preview for my idea! Even I was surprised at first on how real or life like the depth looks especially with the trees and the fence in the distance.

Update! 03/29/09

3D with brighter colors,
http://img12.imageshack.us/img12/5328/lozmmpj64cc3dmc.jpg

If you don't have the glasses then don't let the messy colors misguide you in judging the quality because you'll need the glasses for the colors to make sense. Also the reason the 3D image is very bright is because the glasses make everything darker so the picture needs to be brighter than normal in order for it to be seen properly when wearing the glasses otherwise it would look too dark.


edit:

Could you get photoshop to display that image as a normal stereogram (the one where you cross your eyes, not diverge)

I've a feeling photoshop can't properly create a 3D image. Because it's from a single screenshot, none of the angles from the parallax displacemet will be in that image, so, although it can make hill seem to be in the distance and those pillars up close, they're going to appear as billboards - they won't have any depth in themselves. Just like earlier 3D movies
Could probably explain that better. Here's a pic from Call of Duty

http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i275/GilbertTheAlien/3dcod1.jpg

Cross your eyes so both frames diverge into one. You can put a cyan filter over one and red over the other if you want to try it with glasses
It's subtle in this picture, because I didn't take 2 pictures all that far apart, but there is depth to the actual buildings themselves

I guess I should have explained how I made my 3D image. I actually took two separate pictures from different camera angles within the game itself which can be a little tricky if the game doesn't allow sensitive camera movement so what you're actually seeing with that 3D picture of Link I posted was created with a pure 3D method, and then I merely converted the image to display into ColorCode 3-D format.

This is an example of a normal stereogram of the 3D picture I converted. You'll need to slightly blur your vision until you see three pictures aligned horizontally and then you'll need to focus on the center image to see the 3D illusion.
http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/8835/zmmstereog01.jpg

The other method of conversion you implied about is using a single screenshot or image when converting to get a 3D illusion which does actually work but the result is not realistically portrayed in 3D.

Here's two examples to clear up the difference:

This 3D image is the same one I posted above and I created it using two different angles,
http://img12.imageshack.us/img12/8629/lozmmpj64cc3d.jpg

This one was created using only one angle, so if you have the glasses you'll notice that the illusion is there but it's not realistic.
http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/7749/zmm02v.jpg

Update! 4/20/09

Apparently, my suggestion of using the iZ3D driver with PJ64 works!

At least that's what this guy says on page five of this thread:

Hey uh... I'm not sure if anyone's figured this out yet or not but... I just downloaded the iZ3D driver and it works perfectly with PJ64. It's pretty sweet! I can post a screenshot if anyone wants.

His PC specs and settings:

System:
Windows Vista 32-bit
ATI Mobility Radeon X1300
1G RAM
1.8GHz dual core Intel

PJ64 settings:
Jabo's Direct3D8 1.7.0.56 with all standard settings

iZ3D settings:
When you install the driver, just install it for DirectX. When it's done installing set it to "Enable Stereo" and then "Anaglyph" and then "Yellow/Blue."

If you want any more specs let me know.

3D! Wooohooo!

____________


Update! 5/02/09

There appears to be an issue when using the iZ3D driver on Windows Vista 64-bit that prevents access to the user switching process in Windows but according to the developer's site they are working on fixing it:
http://forum.iz3d.com/viewtopic.php?t=1047

Using Windows Vista 64-bit Ultimate with ATI 9.2 graphics driver.

When attempting to log off computer, or switch to another user, the computer exits to a black screen (where it should be the Windows logon screen).

This requires a manual restart. I read others were having the same issue as well. Any workaround?

ok - we confirmed this just few minutes ago - it is bug in injector mechanism. Can go around it by disabling driver before log off or user switch. We'll try to cure it before release.

If anyone is experiencing other problems with using the iZ3D drivers then I would suggest they browse through the developer's forum in the drivers section for answers or solutions.

PJ64 1.6 can already emulate most of the N64 games without a problem so these more important things you're talking about are really not as important IMO and I'd say you're being a bit judgmental there about others who simply play their games in a different way.

Well Zilmar and Jabo are really the only one's working on PJ64 at the moment and even they have their own lives to maintain >.<

The forums have been rather dead lately so I doubt you'll find too many followers of this idea, I mean just look at the Iphone polling Zilmar opened up recently, he only did it because he thought it might be worth while but even that got rejected pretty severely :O

Your welcome to suggest it, Squally and others are just boasting their opinions too, and quite frankly I agree with him... but ive explained why so end of story (:

You obviously do care otherwise you really wouldn't bother insisting on proving your strongly opinionated thoughts by repeating the same comments. Realx man, It's just an idea and If I could make my own plugin I don't think I would make a topic about it in the first place.

Squally's usually very pessimistic, i wudnt take offense, he's actually realy nice (: ... I think anything that can help is worth considering but knowing it from my end I realise how little time there is for PJ64 production these days...

You obviously seem confident that this is worth their time... may I recommend you talk the 1.4 source and develope it yourself to actually semonstrate how good it may be? if the demand os popular enough you can gain followers that way, then Zilmar may open polling for this...

Mdkcheatz, your suggestion gave me a good idea so thanks because it is actually possible to modify a picture or an in game snapshot to use the ColorCode 3D format with using only Photoshop but the thing is you'll need the ColorCode 3D glasses to see the effect. They can be found for pretty cheap on this site, http://www.3dstereo.com/viewmaster/gla-cyb.html.

I'll try to have some pics ready soon then.

Sorry but that sounds highly impossible because you're eyes are already doing that which means you would have to remove them and then insert something else that connects your brain directly to different 3D capable video or imaging hardware such as a 3D capable PC monitor or a 3D capable TV, otherwise you can only get 3D through indirect means such as using some type of 3D glasses.

Are you using the ColorCode 3-D glasses with yellow/brown and blue lens filters, as pictured here,
http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/8660/colorcodesmall.gif

If you're using the ColorCode 3-D glasses then make sure that the yellow lens is placed to be seen through the left eye and that the blue lens is seen through the right eye.


or are you using normal anaglyph glasses with red and cyan filters, as pictured here,
http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/4736/31535657.jpg

If you're using red and cyan glasses then the 3D effect won't work because the images I posted are not processed to work with red and cyan filters.

Actually, we are capable of injecting sound into the brain directly through means which will eventually lead to actually sounds heard in the environment... I'm guessing since this exists already, then eventually images will become prevalent too.... Reason: blind and deaf people...

Yeah the sound thing is real so I see where you're going with your statement because there's even advertising billboards in some places that shoot sound in only one spot and when a person passes by that spot they'll assume they're hearing voices in their head but if something like injecting 3D images directly into the brain was ever to become possible then the consequences would outweigh the benefit IMO. Imagine someone converting that type of technology into a weapon and then using it from far away to flood your mind with horrible images. The messed up part is that there's already a weapon that uses sound or supposedly harmless heat blasting technology that actually overwhelms the victim's nerves. Then you could even suggest that eventually they'll be able to not only import images directly into our brains but export them also which means visual mind reading! I'd rather have them focus on making current 3D technology better LOL.

or are you using normal anaglyph glasses with red and cyan filters, as pictured here,

If you're using red and cyan glasses then the 3D effect won't work because the images I posted are not processed to work with red and cyan filters.

I could make it work with red and cyan but I think yellow and blue is better, I could be wrong though but that's what the hype says.

3D support for PJ64? Great

Sending audio visual directly to the brain? Wonderful

Sending pleasure directly to my nucleus accumbens? PRICELESS!!!

if a person could gather all the thing's they needed the 3d compatible monitor etc. it would be awesome to play starfox 64 and seeing shit flying left in right it's would make you go woooahh and like try to dodge missed enemy's with your head awesome. or like playing ocarina and seeing monster pop out at you it would be great.it would be like getting high and having a trip but while gaming.lol

Hey uh... I'm not sure if anyone's figured this out yet or not but... I just downloaded the iZ3D driver and it works perfectly with PJ64. It's pretty sweet! I can post a screenshot if anyone wants.

I would post your specs so if other people, like SilentRhino, had issues, they could compare to yours to self determine if their specs were the cause of failure.

System:
Windows Vista 32-bit
ATI Mobility Radeon X1300
1G RAM
1.8GHz dual core Intel

PJ64 settings:
Jabo's Direct3D8 1.7.0.56 with all standard settings

iZ3D settings:
When you install the driver, just install it for DirectX. When it's done installing set it to "Enable Stereo" and then "Anaglyph" and then "Yellow/Blue."

If you want any more specs let me know.

After Silent Rhino said the driver messed up his system I'm afraid to try it myself D:..... Maybe it was just a bad DL?

Maybe, but the driver I linked comes directly from the developer's site so there shouldn't be an issue of downloading hacked drivers and if there is a problem then simply uninstall the driver to solve it.


Why isn't SilentRhino posting his problems on this thread? That way everyone can read about it and I'll also be able to understand his issue better because just saying "messed up his system" sounds like a very useless way to describe something.

With the way eye vision tech is progressing and when considering that they're already able to link some useful artificial eye parts directly with the optic nerve then you ought to be able to see through both eyes in the not so distant future unless your circumstance is more severe?

the eye is not so completely usless i can see through it if i close my left eye but the eye is weak and underused and its not even aligned propely like it should be so for me 3d isnt possible right now wqhich really sucks.

I find it hard to believe you cannot see 3D ever, firstly depth perception is not limited to 2 eyes, secondly, color changing dependent 3D glasses are a cheep way of simulating virtual reality. 3D specialized theaters like IMAX Cinemas use a defferent technique which are not dependent of color nor dual eyes. However, I can imagine how one eyed 3D vision will not be as elaborate as someone with two eyes....

ive got an idea try going through one day with one eye covered and then get back to me on that ok?

Mdkcheatz
24th April 2009, 09:49 AM
Sir, I never said it was easy, but I can imagine that you have adjusted over time, just like if I had 3 eyes i could see even more, but i don't so my everyday actions are based on 2 eyes whereas yours are adjusted to one. Essentially, if I cover one eye, doesn't matter which one, it shortens my width vision by roughly 50%. It however, did not effect depth perception as I had said before. So I'm not sure how me walking around experiencing what you do is going to contradict my last post?

I don't mean to come across as attacking, but I said what I said... I didn't say what I think you are implying I said by turning it into a matter of first hand experience...:)

[edit]

In fact I specifically remember sympathizing with you:

"I can imagine how one eyed 3D vision will not be as elaborate as someone with two eyes...."

What did he say? Anyhow, the developers said that they are working on a fix for it and if anyone is experiencing other problems with using the iZ3D drivers then I would suggest they browse through the developer's forum in the drivers section for answers or solutions.

Thanks! I might be wrong about ColorCode's blue and yellow glasses being better than red and cyan/blue/green glasses for the 3D effect and there does seem to be some rendering glitches when using the iZ3D driver with PJ64 but the awesomeness is what matters.

No more updates from me.

mud dropped that project because the code was a mess (and a whore)

Iirc mudlord was hated on (as well as a hater), so because of people, he quit the project. Not that I blame him a damn bit, everyone related to emulation has evil.
He did also attack some methods and the status of "RiceVideo"'s code, so still true then.

Version 6.1.0 is more stable than 6.1.1 beta 10. There are fixes in 5.9.9 and previous that don't exist even then. I have loads of versions of "RiceVideo" installed--only a couple of which released by mudlord that I do have. I took a look at Aristotle's; I am rather glad mudlord graced the honors upon them.

It was a bit back and forth on both mudlord's and the communities fault. But however, Aristotle's isn't too bad, though it still has that same framebuffer issue. >_<

You should try and make it with the new glasses they make.
