The Patent Pending 3Dfier
is a directshow filter that transforms normal video file to 3D in realtime. 3Dfier filter works with popular media players and support various video format as long as the files were played using direcshow.
Here you can download demo versions for evaluation purpose. This demo version runs for around 10 minutes. We are happy to work with 3D display makers/OEMs to customize a filter that works for the specifc display. Anaglyph is not the best way you can view 3D with 3Dfier filter but it is most easily available. 3Dfier works perfectly with side-by-side 3D Displays such as iZ3D monitor. It also works with 3D Vision Video Player and Stereoscopic Player that supports multiple 3D Display devices including Zalman 3D monitor, nVidia 3D Vision, e-Dimensional shutter glasses and 3DTVs. Current version works with most versions of Media Player Classic. It also works with DVBViewer and allows you to watch DVB TV channels in 3D. Contact us for more information and partnership opportunity.

3Dfier supports 3DTV!

If you recently purchased a 3DTV that does not come with built-in 2D to 3D conversion capability, no worries. 3Difer can work with most of the 3DTV on the market. Here is how it works:

Most 3DTVs on the market today have the capability to turn side-by-side video to frame sequential format automatically with a 3D button on the remote control to work with the shutter glasses that come with the 3DTV. This is mainly for the 3D broadcasting that are running in side-by-side format. What you need to do is to use either Stereoscopic Player or Media Player Classic and make sure you set the output format to side-by-side (which is default of 3Dfier) and play the video to full screen. Then turn on the side-by-side to 3D by the remote control et Voila!

Some 3DTVs like Samsung's disabled the side-by-side to 3D conversion when the input is HDMI 1.4 3D compliant mode (1280x720@60Hz or1920x1080@24Hz) . Make sure you do not set to these modes in order to make it work. In fact, if you are running a current shipping PC, it might come with only HDMI 1.3 and you won't have the HDMI 1.4 3D support. This is bad for BD3D playback but it will work well with side-by-side to 3D conversion or 2D to 3D conversion with 3Dfier! Enjoy the experience of 3Dfier on the large TV screen today!

-Add the support for DVBViewer through its postprocessing plugin. Now you can watch DVB broadcast in 3D! Anaglyph, fullscreen interleave mode for Passive Polarizer Displays and eDimensional shutter glasses are supported. The setup of the plugin is a bit complicated. Hopefully DVBViewer folks will come out an easier setup soon.

Here you can download the latest demo.

DVBViewer works with 3Dfier

Thanks to teklordsb's feedback, we have tested the DVBViewer and found it works with 3Dfier with its postprocessing plugin. The setup is a bit complicated but it works. Wait for next 3Dfier release, we will have DVBViewer supported plus more MPC support. This works for Anaglyph and interleaved passive polarizer display only. To watch TV with shutter glasses, go with Stereoscopic Player.

Watch World Cup with Stereoscopic Player in 3D

You probably know Stereoscopic Player full version has the capability to allow you watch TV in 3D with a TV Tuner card. If you are lucky to be receiving broadcast in 3D, you can watch 3D World Cup with Stereoscopic Player. Don't feel bad if you don't because you can use 3Dfier together with Stereoscopic Player to watch 3D World Cup as well. Surely nothing beats real 3D but we are offering great 2D to 3D viewing experience with 3Dfier when you do not have the 3D source...

Stereoscopic Player works with DVD and so does 3Dfier!

There is a confusion whether 3Dfier works with DVD and the answer is obviously dependent on the media players that works with 3Dfier. And surely the Stereoscopic Player/3DVision Video Player can work with DVD and hence 3Dfier! Check out this page from It tells how DVD works with Stereoscopic Player.

If you use Media Player Classic, see here for the setting to make DVD works.

3Dfier works with e-Dimensional shutter glasses!

Guys, while e-Dimensional shutter glasses does not offer the best resolution and quality, it is fairly good in a dark room (imagine the theater experience). It runs with regular monitor. You don't need 120Hz monitor to use it. You see flickering at 60Hz and much less flickering with 75Hz. You don't really see flickering in the dark and best of all, it works with 3Dfier! Just select the output format as interleave from Highly recommended Stereoscopic Player (or from 3Dfier control panel if you use Media Player Classics) and that's it! Enjoy e-Dimensional with 3Dfier!


Thanks to jcon's feedback on e-Dimensional with 120Hz projector below:

jcon said...

Hi guys,

I use eDimensional shutter glasses together with a 120Hz compatible Acer projector and there is a better way of using them with the 3Dfier plugin: You can use EDActivator.exe from the eDimensional homepage and select "page-flipping" from the menu. In Stereoscopic Player you also select "software page flipping" as the viewing method. In 3dfier you select side by side output instead of interleave. This combination gives a much brighter picture!

A 3rd party 2D to 3D review reveals a sad thing

You probably will feel angry as I am if you likes our product. From this independent review, you can see very clearly our older algorithm got reversed and you who have downloaded know that anyone who installed our filter agreed not to do so. Well, but this is not the end of the world. Put your red-cyan glasses on and you can see our new release has improved and beats theirs. Since we are the inventor of this best solution and much cheaper, why bother buying their solution! If you like our products and respect the efforts we put in making 2D to 3D come true, please tell your friends and family say NO to them!

What's new in 3Dfier v1.0.19


This new release will have both algorithm and GUI improvements including the following:

1. 3Dfier Control Panel can now be launched separately and hence can be used to enable/disable and change features independently to Stereoscopic Player/3D Vision Video Player.

2. Merged Anaglyph, side-by-side and interleave to a single release that user can select. Media Player Classic can run for interleaved format but for low resolution video file, still recommend to use Stereoscopic Player/3D Vision Video Player

3. Add an auto-detect input type to "guess" if the input video file is 3D and decide if 2D to 3D should be enabled. This method is suggested by Blackhole's Soul. We would like to thank him for this.

4. Add new motion detect method to increase the object depth. This method might come with a side effect of flickering during scene change and hence we also add an Anti-flickering function.

5. New algorithm to enhance object details and increase 3D effect dramatically. You can see the difference easily with plain 2D cartoons.

6. The new Enhance Detail function has improved the Red-Cyan Anaglyph to an extend that we no longer think Anaglyph is bad for 3D.

Can I use 3DVision Video Player for Anaglyph?

The answer is yes but it is a little bit complicated. You will need to have nVidia Stereo driver installed correctly on your system. 3DVision Video Player can display 3D in either shutter glasses or Anaglyph only in full screen mode. For you not having nVidia Stereo driver or not using nVidia display card at all, recommend to use Stereoscopic Player or download our free Anaglyph demo that works with Media Player Classics. We now offers the Anaglyph demo now with no time limitation. Download before we change our mind.

3Dfier for passive/micro polarizer 3D displays, anyone?

We will be able to support passive/micro polarizer displays such as Zalman 3D monitor or Acer 3D notebook with 3Dfier on Media Player Classics. Media Player Classics with proper codecs can play almost all video files you can find. If you are interested in playing with a demo, please leave a comment to this post. We can post a demo version if many of you are interested.


We are half-angry and half-flattered to hear that a big software company has tried to copy our solution and showed in CES this year. This company has signed NDA with us and by installing our software, agreed not to reverse-engineer what we have done. We heard they weren't able to copy our solution completely and the result still cannot compete with ours but still it hurts our big investment in the passing years and big efforts experimenting to come out the best formula for 3D. As our patent application is still pending and we only heard from witness from CES without seeing it ourselves, we are not going to have any legal action as yet before their software is on sale. In the meantime, we are working hard to come out the next generation algorithm to try to leave the competition further behind. Your support is the best motivation for us to keep going. Please help promote our solution if you like it. Thanks and wish you a happy Chinese New Year!
