  1. Hi

    I was looking for a way to convert a SBS video file in this case a 16:9 file to 32:9 so both frames have the correct ratio
    Most video i found are squeezed and are awful to watch on a durovis dive, and since i cant find a video player that is
    able to correct that i might as wel convert it

    thx

    To go from common "SbS" (which is usually Left on Left, Right on Right, and 2:1 anamorphicly squeezed) to Full SbS (non-squeezed), you should use StereoMovieMaker, or maybe one of those previously-mentioned (on this site) AVISynth scripts. Or try the Pantarheon AVISynth plugin and do a simple script resize
    Code:
    LeftRight3DReducedToLeftRight(c)
    , then re-encode to a phone-compatible movie file format.

  3. Can't you just resize to twice the width?

    Yes, unless the source is Cross-eye formatted.

    Also noticed that Xilisoft makes a decent 3D format convert app for both Mac & PC (GUI).

  5. Hi

    Thx for some solutions it seems to work with Pantarheon AVISynth plugin, i only have to figure out how to save the video file
    Why cant those help files be like comic books btw the (c) at the end of the code was not needed

    That was there to indicate a video clip should be passed to the function. In AviSynth, if you don't specify a video clip "last" is used by default.

    So a script like:

    Code:
    DirectShowSource("filename.ext")
    LeftRight3DReducedToLeftRight()
    is equivalent to:

    Code:
    last = DirectShowSource("filename.ext")
    last = LeftRight3DReducedToLeftRight(last)
    Return(last)
    Whereas a script like:

    Code:
    c = DirectShowSource("filename.ext")
    LeftRight3DReducedToLeftRight()
    would not work because there is no "last" to pass to LeftRight...(). You would have to specify c in that call.

    That (c) was part of the original code example and follows the accepted practice of showing the placeholders for the variables (in this case, the named clip).

    Yes, Avisynth does great with the processing, but does not itself encode. But it IS a frameserver, so an app like Virtualdub can load the script and encode.

    However, for your needs, you would probably be best served by using one of those aforementioned GUI consumer applications.

  8. hi

    1) dl/install AVISynth
    2) dl/install Pantarheon AVISynth plugin
    3) dl/open AvsPmod
    4) drag/drop video into AvsPmod
    5) add "LeftRight3DReducedToLeftRight" and save script
    6) dl/open Virtualdub and load script
    7) under video use compression and save file

    It all works now
    thx both of u
