Lead Dev MP2
- March 24, 2007
Feature is being developed in branch: https://github.com/MediaPortal/MediaPortal-2/commits/EXP_3DMode
Feature will be included in MP2 Alpha 2.
Inspired by the great new plugin https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/threads/auto3d-plugin-for-mediaportal-1-2-3-and-1-3-0-rc.116708/ (@Marcus Venturi ) I thought about an implementation in MP 2.
I was amazed how simple it can be and started to work on this new topic
Currently this feature is under development and some issues needs to be resolved. But you can get a first impression how it can work.
Let's take an example Side-By-Side video (SBS):
When starting normal playback, you get the video splitted in two halves, the OSD is a single one.
To get a real 3D GUI including video, all GUI components needs to be rendered in both screen halves:
It's also possible to "downscale" a SBS 3D video back to 2D, by taking only the first half:
You can also browse your movie collection while playing video in 3D, or use any other MP2 feature:
What it does not (yet) do:
- Correct mouse focus handling, it is not yet adopted to screen output
- Detection of video types
- Switching external devices into other modes (see Auto3d thread for details)
