3FLEX - Depth enabled workflow for flexible 2D and multiview video production


Co-funded by the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme

Duration: November 2013 – October 2015

The 3FLEX project aims to define and develop a new advanced workflow for flexible 2D, stereo and multiview video production capable to deal with and take advantage of the image+depth content approach and to develop the building blocks to implement it. This workflow enhances current 2D and 3D production workflows, and regarding the 2D to 3D conversion processes promises cost savings and improvements in terms of production efficiency and workflow automation.

The tools of the new 3FLEX workflow will be implemented as OpenFX plugins that cover most of the process: adaptation to the supplementary data in the image ingest and the pre-processing architectures, development of new image+depth channel retouch and processing tools and adaptation of existing post-production tools in order to take advantage of the existing depth channel.
