Improving the efficiency of 2D and 3D production workflows by using depth information is the task set by the R&D bodies behind 3FLEX. Project partners (Eurecat, imcube labs, SGO, Imagineer Systems, Fraunhofer HHI) are presenting the latest results of the EC-funded projector ‘Depth-enabled workflow for 2D and multiview video production’.
Greater flexibility is hoped to be achieved by extending existing post platforms with a set of plug-ins based on new computer vision techniques covering the whole chain.
In the IBC Future Zone, the latest results are being shown on the post platforms, Mocha and Mamba/Mistika.
“We are showing the extraction and preparation of depth information from different inputs and its use within common post production tasks such as compositing, filtering and colour grading,” explains Eurecat’s R&D technical project manager, Monica Caballero.
