Dashwood Cinema Solutions Adds Stereoscopic Workflow to FXFactory

Boston, Mass. - ­ Noise Industries, developer of visual effects tools for the postproduction and broadcast markets, announced that new development partner, Dashwood Cinema Solutions, has released its first FxPack: Stereo3D Toolbox for Stereoscopic 3D mastering. Created by Dashwood Cinema Solutions founder, Tim Dashwood, Stereo3D Toolbox is an FxFactory-powered plug-in designed to work with Adobe After Effects CS3 / CS4, Apple Final Cut Pro, Apple Motion, and Apple Final Cut Express applications.
With Stereo3D Toolbox, artists can easily output their media to a wide range of Stereoscopic 3D formats (side by side, over/under, checkerboard, interlace, anaglyph) as well as manage the demuxing of side by
side, interlace and over/under formatting. Comprehensive compositing features and capabilities include keyframeable x, y, z-axis convergence, individual left/right eye scale, color correction, selective flip/flop,
reframing and "auto scale" compensation.

Stereo3D Toolbox FxPack features:

Input formats: separate left/right, side by side, over/under & interlace
Output formats: side by side, over/under, interlace, checkerboard, anaglyph
Customizable Anaglyph controls (Red/Cyan, Blue/Yellow, Green/Magenta)
Convergence controls for x, y, z axis and individual left eye/right eye zoom
Auto Scale function automatically compensates for convergence settings
Master Reframing function for scaling and x/y reframing
Individual Image controls for balancing left and right eyes to each other
Flip, Flop & Swap controls for both eyes (ideal for beam-splitter 3D rigs)
Split Field feature to maintain resolution of converged text in under/over mode
