Major release for Quantel post systems even more powerful and capable
Quantel’s Version 5 software, now in the final stages of Beta testing, has gained a number of useful new Stereo3D tools in addition to those already announced. These are being shown for the first time at IBC 2010, and include:
Convergence – improved convergence tools which can now be controlled by pixel count and can also be burnt-in as a segment or track effect. The benefit is faster, more precise set-up of vergence and it makes deliverables production easier.
Push – working on both eyes simultaneously, gives precise percentage control of zoom to remove edge effects; can also be burnt-in.
Rotate – new tool which enables independent left and right eye rotation to correct any rotational geometry errors introduced during the shoot.
Float – easy creation of floating windows to remove edge violations that can be disturbing to viewers.
Anaglyph Viewing Mode – UI addition which creates a red-cyan image which can be viewed on 2D User Interface monitors.
Mono Difference Viewing Mode – easy viewing of left eye/right eye disparity, helping speed vergence set-up.
“Our customers are telling us that they are doing more and more Stereo3D work, so we brought these timesaving developments forward into the first V5 release,” said Steve Owen, Quantel Director of Marketing. “Pablo and iQ already have a fantastic reputation for power and quality in 3D. Adding these tools makes them even more creative and productive.”
