Re: SView a universal display application

John Clement

As to applications that use the metadata there are:
sView - interprets all or nearly all the metadata
Magix Movie Edit Pro - sets the SBS jpg bit
Windows - it can display the thumbnail properly
YouTube - detects the SBS 3D bit

Stereo Photo Maker ignores all metadata.
Most photo editors do not recognize anamorphic pictures, but some do have
options to correct for them.

So now you have a short list of known applications that use the 3D metadata.
There may be more.

Subject: Re: [Photo-3d] SView a universal display application

It assumes JPS has the image stored cross view, while SPM assumes
parallel storage.  There is, to my knowledge, no standard for JPS,
Here is the full description of the JPS format...

There is metadata support for alternate layouts including interleaved, SBS,
over/under, anaglyph, etc. plus field order.
But the specification says the default is SBS, full height, right field
first. I read that as cross-eyed.

I am unaware of any application that either creates or reads this JPS
specific meta data. It looks like a well thought out standard, but as far
as I can tell it appears to have been pretty much ignored by industry. My
LG Thrill phone does indeed do parallel SBS. Does it set the 'left field
first' bit in the JPS metadata? Beats me.

It's too bad that within this community we cannot claim JPS as
*the* preferred 3D still image format. We could not even come to a
consensus, in this forum, if JPS files should all be LR or RL.
I tried. So is it any wonder the sorry state of any sort of general
adoption of stereographic imaging?
