basic experiment viewing stereo images in VR with the Rift

I have one of those Fuji 3d cameras and was interested in trying to view its stereoscopic pics in VR with the Rift.
I did a quick hack to away3d to add a plane that supports stereoscopic textures so each eye receives its over version of the pic and knocked up a quick gallery demo. It works surprisingly well. I expected I would have to alter the offset of each image based on how close the viewer was but no, it seems to work fine

Thought it might be of interest. I don't plan on doing much more with it for now
Also you may need to set your res manually to 1200x800 for best results

    All i get is a black window screen with a button that says 'FS'. Clicking gives me full black screen..??
  • if your rift is plugged in and facing down it may just be the view down, where theres nothing

    my bad.. :D

    really nice done! I will add my own Fuji 3D pictures.
  • cheers!

    just make sure they're 1024x1024 as it currently does no checking before trying to load use them as textures
  • Also with Fujifilm W3 camera images - you can upload those directly to Phereo.com personal gallery, and get Oculus Rift viewer support directly in the browser.

    I have a Sony HX10V photocamera and just realized it can take 3D pictures. The format is .MPO
    Besides uploading them to Phereo.com, is there an app/program which can also display them in the Rift?

    I use 3D Stereo Pair Maker and StereoPhotoViewer. Once you turn your images into a L/R pair (same name file w/ -L and -R suffix) you can put the folder of images in the images folder of SPV. Pair Maker automatically creates the file names for you if you select save as L/R stereo image.
    Once you access the folder w/ SPV you can center-click to scroll through the viewer formats (#2 is OVR) and scroll wheel to zoom. Definitely select 1920 x 1200 resolution to reduce aliasing for the best results!
