Gimpel3D 2D/3D Stereo Conversion software is now opensource.

by ReneGimpel / November 21, 2013 6:36 AM PST


I just opensourced my 2d/3d stereo conversion research, it's one of the few software products listed on wiki under the actual topic of 2d/3d conversion (I didn't put it there myself), so it has some relevance to the field..

I'm not marketing myself or making any big announcements, I just want to pass on the news to anyone that may be interested..

Gimpel3D, not GIMP

The family name name is unfortunate and coincidental Happy I have nothing at all to do with GIMP the image editor (at least it's not Bolton)..

My app isn't infected in any way, and the source code is now freely's more of a projective modeling application than traditional stereo converter, this video should clarify what it does (more or less)..

It's referenced on wiki (and I've attracted some misc. attention over the years) but I've pretty much kept to myself about it...I'll clean up and document the code better in the near future so that others can mess with it..

Was geared more towards the issue that SourceForge seems to be taking to the dark side. Your SourceForge download appears to be clean.

And small world. One of my apps was updated last week and is some Win/WinMo thing in VS2008.

I hate to write this but VS2008 seems to be the last of the great Visual Studio versions. I didn't think much when we ordered VS2010 but was shocked as our WinMo app was not supported there!

I was a huge fan of VS6 for years (simple tools are fine when you write code from scratch), I finally had to let it go a few years ago because all clients use VS2005>VS2012...

Ironically, when I built the freeware release I wanted to be sure it was as compatible as possible so I ported to VS2005 (from VS6), and that compiler introduced a security bug that requires a special patch from MS (the error is referenced on the main page, I should have just stuck with VS6 on that one)..

I wasn't aware of the sourceforge issues (I'm fairly reclusive and don't poke my head up much), I appreciate the info, that definitely impacts my plans...I wasn't likely to use their code and project management tools anyway, there's no wide collaboration right now so no need for it..

Feel free to hit me up with any tech questions about how it works, I'm always glad to discuss the code and processes..

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
