3D DirectShow filter

I wonder if there is (or being developed) a 3D DirectShow filter which would allow to watch 3D movies, so that you don't need a dedicated player to watch in 3D. The main problem (as I can see it) is a variety of 3D graphic cards and the lack of common 3D interface for a graphic card driver. As a result of that, dedicated 3D players have to list all supported hardware. But still we can start with a filter which produces an anaglyph output, and then extend it, if possible.

Thank you.

See, if I succeed in compiling it, since the precompiled binary is unavailable as yet

As a matter of fact, MVC format (AFAIK) is related to 3DBD, while I meant just 3D BDRip (e.g. side-by-side, top-bottom), where you normally have plain AVC (h284) and just need to process it as 3D movie.

Yes that change was only for 3D content on Blu-rays. However, its only the splitter. You will still require a decoder, and a renderer to support this. Both these components are yet not available.

For other types of 3D encodings, like ripped into a fixed top-bottom encoding, they are not yet handled either.

Basically, if you want 3D, you're currently stuck with the commercial players.

As far is rip is concerned, the decoder is standard, while the anaglyph rendering algorithm isn't proprietary, so that I don't see why it couldn't be a DirectShow filter for anaglyph rendering.

BTW, is there a specification or a sample code for a DirectShow filter?

Anaglyph is horrible.
When i'm talking about 3D, i mean real and proper 3D, not an abonimation like Anaglyph, which steals half your colors from the image.
