For the last few years we’ve worked with the National Stereoscopic Association to support the 3D Digital Showcase photo competition featured at the NSA’s annual conventions. The images from this past year’s showcase are now live for everyone to view. We really enjoy the diversity of images submitted by 3D artists and enthusiasts to this event, and this gallery is certainly no different. You’ll see everything from close ups of insects to people juggling fire. Simply put,...(read more)
In driver 334.89 NVIDIA introduced a new proprietary rendering mode for 3D Vision that enables us to improve the 3D experience for many key DirectX 10 and 11 games. This mode is now called “3D Compatibility Mode”. We have continued to iterate on this feature in driver 344.11, increasing game support and adding some new interface elements. You can get the new driver at www.geforce.com/drivers or via the update option in Geforce Experience. With the release of 344.11, new 3D...(read more)
We’re fortunate enough to have another fine 3D video from New Media Film Festival to share with you here on 3DVisionLive—a pop music video from Italy called “The Way,” which you can view here. Even better, New Media Film Festival has provided an interview with one of the co-directors of the video, Edoardo Ballanti, which provides insights on how the video was created and the vision behind it. Enjoy! (Alice Corsi also co-directed the video.) What was the Inspiration behind “...(read more)
The Fall Photo Contest received nearly 100 images – thanks to all that entered! The contest called for your best “nature” shots with the only other requirement being that they had to be true stereo images. Submissions ranged from shots of spiders in gardens to artistic approaches to tasteful nudes. As before, members were invited to vote for the winner by tagging images in the contest gallery as favorites. Without further ado, the winner is: Autumn Goodbye to Summer This...(read more)
In driver 334.89 NVIDIA introduced a new proprietary rendering mode for 3D Vision that enables us to improve the 3D experience for many key DirectX 10 and 11 games. This mode is now called “3D Compatibility Mode”. We have continued to iterate on this feature in beta driver 337, increasing game support and adding a toggle key to enable/disable the mode. Games with 3D Compatibility Mode will launch in this mode by default. To change the render mode back to standard 3D Vision...(read more)
3DVisionLive’s first-ever short-form 3D video contest received 14 entries that showed a great deal of diversity, ranging from video game captures to commercial-style clips to raw captures of pets or people doing cool things (such as bashing each other with swords). During judging we laughed, we cried (okay, maybe not), and we simply scratched our heads…. But seriously: thank-you to all that participated and we hope to see more of your content uploaded to the site for all to...(read more)
