Splitting stereo video into two videos?

Post by atrunyan »

Hi, I'm hoping to be able to split my recorded split screen video into a left and right video so that I can make a disparity map video from them. Is this possible? How would I go about doing this?

For offline conversion (after the half-sbs file is created), here is a ffmpeg command to split your video input.mp4 into two files output_l.mp4 and output_r.mp4:

Code: Select all

ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -filter_complex 'split[a][b],[a]stereo3d=sbs2l:ml[l],[b]stereo3d=sbs2l:mr[r]' -map '[l]' output_l.mp4 -map '[r]' output_r.mp4
If you want to do it live, see https://github.com/realizator/stereopi-fisheye-robot (and in particular 6_dm_video.py for live disparity map after the calibration is done ; you can also find a code to split the frame in two images in this file if you are interested in this specific part only)

Stereomaton, thank you for your answer!

atrunyan, I'm curious why do you need two independent video files to get the disparity map, but not the single side-by-side file. What's the aim of the project?
