Gimpel3D Stereoscopic Conversion Software is Now Opensource

The Gimpel3D source code has been released in open source under the GPL licence and is available on SourceForge.

Developed by René Gimpel, an independent stereoscopic 3D researcher between 2008 and 2011, Gimpel3D is recognized for its advanced modeling features not seen in similar programs (including commercial packages at the time of release). Gimpel3D converts still images and video into stereoscopic 3D using a combination of traditional approaches and a proprietary projective modelling system.

Since the original freeware release, many of the ideas presented in G3D have become standard features in commercial software. As a result, there is no more significant advantage to developing G3D as a stand-alone proprietary solution.

GPL Licence

René Gimpel has released all source code for G3D under the GPL so that other stereo researchers, hobbyists, and/or professionals can build upon his existing work, and integrate/test new capabilities using the projective modeling environment
