3D Metadata : We need them !
The 20/20 3D Media research project, funded by the European Union presents an initiative for standardization of metadata for 3D, named M3DI (Initiative on 3D Metadata), and that is offered as an input for future standardization activities. This initiative has already raised the interest of important players in the different stages of the incipient 3D industry. Ask for an invitation and become part of the adventure !
m3Di is proposing a standard for 3D metadata communication in order to make interoperable lenses, cameras, rigs and stereoscopic image processors used in 3D productions, in a way that all the products accomplishing that standard, would allow final customers to replace any item of the production chain with no major impact in the 3D workflow, giving freedom of choice and ensuring interoperability.
