StereoPhoto Maker 5.06
Create, view and work with 3D images

StereoPhoto Maker is a free portable tool for working with 3D images.

At its simplest, you can use the program to open and view JPS, MPO, STJ and DAS files, as well as anaglyph images in regular formats. It's not the most visually appealing of viewers, but there are keyboard shortcuts to zoom in and out, move backwards and forwards through a group of files, display them as a slideshow, and more.

There's support for viewing 3D images in many different ways: side-by-side, colour and gray anaglyphs, interlaced, above/ below and more. A convenient "flashing" option quickly switches back and forth between the two images, allowing you to get a feel for the 3D effect even if you don't have a viewer.

Your source pictures can be saved in various other 3D formats. Or if you're more interested in 2D viewing, images can be saved as animated GIFs (with the "flashing" effect) or split into their component pictures (left/ right JPEGs, say).

The real power here comes from StereoPhoto Maker's ability to create and adjust 3D images, though. At its simplest, you might open a 3D picture and use the cursor keys to re-align images, one pixel at a time. But if you're working on a larger scale, the author claims StereoPhoto Maker 4.52 can "automatically batch-align hundreds of images and mount them to the 'window'".

You also get the option to create simple web pages which, in theory at least, allow you to share your favourite 3D pictures with others. We say "in theory" as it didn't work well for us, but if you have more luck then this could be very useful.

StereoPhoto Maker isn't always easy to use. Creating new images in particular requires a good knowledge of 3D fundamentals. It works just fine as a 3D viewer, though, and as the program is just a single 3MB executable, it's not exactly going to get in your way. If you might ever need to work with 3D images then we'd recommend keeping a copy around.

Verdict:

StereoPhoto Maker has a useful 3D image viewer, and convenient tools for processing and converting various 3D formats. It's not always easy to use - and creating 3D pictures requires a little work - but there's more than enough here to justify the download.

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
