Stereo Image Maker - Information for the developers
here for the basic Concepts of Stereoscopic Image
here for the description of the Stereoscopic .PNG Image File Format (sTER chunk)
All the source code is included within the
software installation. However, if you only need the modified source files
of the LibPng library to support the Stereoscopic PNG chunk, and like me you feel insecure
with the idea of running on your computer an installation application created by
an unknown guy, you can download a zipped file, that contains only the modified
LibPng source files,
If you run the installation application on someone
else computer, or you are heedless and you run the installation application on your
personal computer, or you have a Virus Protection software in which you have
absolute faith, or you are simply trusting me, you will enjoy the well done
object oriented LibJCH functions library.
You will find in the LibJCH library a lot of
useful pixel and bitmap manipulation functions and much more. If you are a
beginner with Visual C++ MFC MDI applications, you will find a lot of tips in
the source files located in the StereoImgMk folder.
I passed hundreds of hours creating this code
and 70% of this time was debugging time. Not to fix obvious bugs, but to
be sure no bug exists. I am an experimented analyst programmer and I am
constantly reusing my existing code to create new code. This is why I am
constantly over checking my code to be sure to not spread bugs. Of course,
when you are developing like this, you need to be very persevering because it
takes longer to do simple things, but in the long road, you save a lot of time
and frustration by working this way.
If you are an experimented programmer, you know
the value of such code.
For the LibPng,
LibZlib and LibJpg
libraries, visit the Websites of their own authors for more information.
For those too much scared by my comments above
about running the installation application, there is an alternative to gain faith in
me! This (scary no icon) installation application has been created by the WinZip
Self Extractor application. So you can unzip it like a normal .ZIP
file. From there, you will get all the source code without
being exposed to any dangerous viruses, worms, Trojans or worst, Raelian disciples.
If you think I am myself too scared about
harmful applications, you are absolutely right!
