Resources for 2D images into 3D images - Depth projection

PostFri Apr 09, 2021 11:13 am

Hi, I'm trying to get my head around creating 3D images from 2D images, but i'm finding it difficult to find resources that explain the theory behind it, there are a few tutorials online but they never really explain why something is being done, i'll follow along and get some results, but recreating them by myself becomes more difficult when I don't know they why's of some of the operations. I've checked the manual, but nothing in there. Anybody know of any resources for this?

For what purpose? Are we talking about creating 3d geometry from a 2d image (photogrammetry)? Or stereoscopic conversion? Or those AI-driven "3d" images that Facebook makes these days? Or 3d matte painting? There are lots of different techniques and workflows, and you're right—most tutorials are very lean on the "why" because "how" is way easier.

Out of interest, are you trying to convert monoscopic 2D 360 photo/video content into stereoscopic 3D 360 footage?

If this is the case then a term to look for when researching 6DoF (six degrees of freedom) depth map creation is to search online for “RGBD” where the acronym uses the letter “D” to represent depth, which is in slight contrast to the more common usage of the letter “Z” for Z-depth.

A super helpful tool in this endeavour is a program (that has a large dedicated stereo 3D fan base) called SPM (Stereophotomaker).

Also check out the old but still relevant eyeon Fusion “tooltorials” on YouTube that discuss the Dimension stereo tools. Those videos are from circa 2012 but the features presented can still be found in the Resolve Studio v17.1.1 Fusion page today.
