■ 2D to 3D graphic conversion by Q-TEC
  • Production by S3D Directors
    • In order to create visually entertaining and easy to see 3D environments we always have a experienced Stereographer on site.
      The Stereographer works closely with the Director to produce the perfect visuals to match the story and the size of the output whether that be in a theater, on TV or a 3D Tablet device.
  • Can adapt to various situation.
    • We are able to convert all forms of 2D images into 3D, like photos, various types of Video tapes, 2D material that is on 35mm/ 16mm film or CG material like After Effects that have not been rendered as 2D images yet.
  • 3D Japanimation
    • Converting Japanese Anime, or Japanimation, into 3D is one of our specialties. We have a wealth of experience with converting Japanimation; cell animation movies like Yu-Gi-Oh The Movie from 2D to 3D for its release in theaters.
      * The animation work which Q-TEC served as the 3D supervisor, HIPIRA is now on sale in Blu-ray 3D on AMAZON.

  • Preparing a 3D environment
    • For example we test convert important scenes in order to understand the width and the depth of the material before we start.
      This works as the 3D image board or are used as the artistic settings.
      For animation, we take the main characters and create their 3D character settings beforehand so that we don't lose the characters feel when we turn it into 3D.
  • Attention to Detail
    • From each cuts lens and structure the Stereographer builds a 3D environment.
      Each cut has to be done with particular care for the purpose of the 3D effect in mind, to make the 3D look natural and fitting.
  • The combination of Automatic Programs and Manual hand work
    • By using a combination of automatic 3D processing and carefully putting together each piece one by one by hand we are able to provide cost effective and flexible service to our clients that meets their deadlines.
      If required we can also do 3DCG processing to provide an higher level of 3D graphics.
  • Production done by a small team of highly qualified designers
    • By having the work done by a small team of highly qualified designers we can cut costs and save time like no other.
      In 2010, we completely remodeled a whole 126 min, full length Cinema film into 3D in 2 and a half month with a 30 person staff.
  • Development of next generation conversion tools
    • 2D-3D Conversion generally takes a lot of time and hard work, but with our new tools that are under development, we will be able to make the process 75% more efficient.
  • A fully equipped Hi-tech Facility
    • We have 2 REAL-D certified studios fully equipped with REAL-D recommended equipment.
      We are fully able to meet the technical standards for making Hollywood quality 3D films.

■ Q&A
  • Q: What is 2D-3D conversion?
    • A: 3D images are made by recording with stereo cameras or by placing cameras inside a CG environment and then performing stereo rendering. Whereas 3D production is based on filming ‘2D-3D conversion technology’ is to take 2D images and process them into 3D images
  • Q: What are the benefits of using 2D-3D conversion?
    • A: Material that was filmed in 3D is very difficult to adjust later on because for filming you need 2 cameras set at precisely the right distance and angle with a particular set of lens used.
      Additionally, if adjustments need to be made, because you will be adjusting 2 images with disparity it is almost impossible to rework them live.
      In 2D-3D conversion you can adjust the 3D textures freely which lets you create a natural 3D feel or create a 3D image that feels intentional by emphasizing the perspective.
      Also, when making adjustments becomes much easier since after you fix the 2D image you turn it into 3D.
      One of the benefits of 2D-3D conversion is that you can use the material you were not able to film and turn it into 3D.
