Patchwork3D from Lumiscaphe

Lumiscaphe (Canejan, France) released v5.5 of its Patchwork3D software collection. Patchwork3D offers head tracking and a stereoscopic rendering option.

A test version of Lumiscaphe Patchwork3D v5.5 is downloadable for free (follow the link here under).

Used for Live Demo

In 2012, Lumiscaphe participated in the CDN Interior Design Awards. This ceremony rewards the work on the passenger compartment of the future performed by students from design schools all over the world. As an official partner, Lumiscaphe offered visitors a sensational immersive experience with two projectors displaying the images computed by P3D Virtual Sight on two perpendicular screens.

This device, which includes infrared cameras, stereoscopic glasses and a tracking system, displays a 3D scene on two-dimensional screens. The 3D scene is updated according to the observer’s position in the visualization area. The observer thus sees the model come out of the screens and can contemplate it from all angles, as if the vehicle was really in front of him.

How it Works

Stereoscopic viewing devices allow you to observe, with the aid of polarized spectacles, a 3D scene in relief. The illusion of depth thus spectacularly reinforces the impression of realism of your 1:1 scale 3D scene. In P3D Virtual Sight the stereoscopy of the display is generated by the driver (Quad Buffer) or by two rendering machines per screen. A tracking system allows synchronization of the observer’s movements and the display in real time. The observer’s viewpoint and position are measured by two cameras placed on either side of the screen. The virtual camera thus faithfully tracks the direction of gaze and movements of the observer.
