Stereoscopic imagery plug-ins for Nuke.
Ocula® is a unique and powerful collection of 16 workflow plug-in tools for Nuke that help take the headache out of stereo post-production.
Fix common stereoscopic problems
Ocula’s fine-level control makes producing high-quality stereo VFX faster and easier, with the ability to correct color and focus, automatically correct alignment, retime stereo views and more.
Create sharp and accurate images
Image-building tools match original footage without depth tearing, while additional tools enable you to calculate clean and stable stereo disparity without depth roll-off.
Turn around shots in less time
Built-in automation allows corrections to be scripted for offline work, while advanced GPU acceleration speeds up interactive processing, with the same results as the CPU.
Ocula®’s toolsets provide standard templates for getting the best results in plate preparation, color correction and vertical alignment, while reducing iterations and speeding-up shot turnaround.
The Disparity generator creates stereo disparity vectors that map pixels between left and right views. These vectors are the core of Ocula’s plate correction workflows, allowing for color, focus and alignment to be easily mapped between views.
Warp and align views vertically while maintaining horizontal pixel position. Perfect for removing focal length differences and rotations, eliminate lens distortions and fix issues with depth align
The optical flow-based Retimer removes the differences between left and right views that can make for uncomfortable 3D viewing experiences.
Color and focus
Match color and focus between left and right views to improve visual consistency in stereo when subtle differences pop-up in the stereo view.
Designed for fixing tricky shots where alignment, color and focus matches are problematic, the New View plug-in lets you rebuild one view from another by shifting the distances between two cameras.
Ocula’s Disparity to Depth plug-in provides a quick and accurate way of generating the disparity field when you have a CG scene with camera information and a z-depth map available. The resulting data can then be used elsewhere, for example, to perform depth of field effects or a deep merge.
Troubleshooting and QC
The Stereo and Disparity review gizmos provide a fast, artist-friendly solution for quality control, while making it easier to spot trouble areas that need correction.
