On earlier post you can read about configuring MPC and ffdshow video codec to watch stereoscopic 3D movies. Today we have an alternative way to watch SBS movie as Anaglyph, MPC and GOM as media player 3D. We going to write a short avisynth script, and will use MPC and GOM player to open the script, just like what i did before with MS expression encoder (convert SBS into Anaglyph). Only today, we’re not converting any stereoscopic 3D movies. We just open the script with media player and the 3D movie will be played on it. All we need is a media player that support AVS file (avisynth script) such as Media Player Classic Home Cinema (MPC) and GOM Player.
Not like before, on earlier post we requires ffdshow raw video codec which is bundled on K-Lite Codec Pack. Now we only need Avisynth, Pantarheon 3D toolbox and FFmpegSource. Kindly read my earlier post about step-by-step installing Avisynth and Pantarheon if you don’t have them installed.
This method only work for 720P resolution or less. Lag will occurs on higher resolution movies (for example 1080P full HD movie). For smooth playing it need to be reduced into 720P or less. So, we will have two kind of avs script which is for 720P HD movie or less and higher than 720P HD movies which will be reduced into half of its current resolution.
Simply right click on video file, and then click Properties. On Details tab look for its Frame Height.
Now open a Notepad or any text editor, and paste the following scripts.
video = "C:\Users\Asus\Videos\Elephants Dream\Elephants Dream.mp4" FFIndex(video) SBS = AudioDub(FFVideoSource(video), FFAudioSource(video)) C = ConvertToRGB(SBS) w = C.width() h = C.height() LeftRight3DToRCAnaglyph(C).Lanczos4Resize(w, h)
video = "C:\Users\Asus\Videos\Elephants Dream\Elephants Dream.mp4" FFIndex(video) SBS = AudioDub(FFVideoSource(video), FFAudioSource(video)) C = ConvertToRGB(SBS) w = C.width()/2 h = C.height()/2 LeftRight3DToRCAnaglyph(C).Lanczos4Resize(w, h)
Change “C:\Users\Asus\Videos\Elephants Dream\Elephants Dream.mp4” to your movie path.
Save the script as the movie name but with avs extension (.avs) on the current movie folder. In my case “Elephants Dream.avs” on C:\Users\Asus\Videos\Elephants Dream\ folder.
This is just an optional step, actually you can set any name and put anywhere you like. But please note that MPC and GOM will try to search subtitle file on its movie folder and also based on the video file name.
You can also convert avs script file into permanent video file and in this case the result will be on anaglyph format. You might also interested on using dedicated media player 3D called Bino 3D. You can play 1080P HD stereoscopic 3D without any problem with it, but the only down part is that Bino 3D doesn’t automatically play the subtitle.
