||This project has begun in 1999 but it is
only in late 2004 that I finally found the time to complete it. It
took very long because I developed it only on my free time. The idea
of the PNG sTER chunk came when I added PNG support to the DecoTech
software version 6. Since DecoTech was already rendering
interlaced stereoscopic images, I found more easy to use PNG file format
to store both left and right images compare to the JPS file format.
was the alpha channel that allows
transparency over a background image.
So the first goal of the Stereo Image Maker software
was to promote the use of the .PNG image file format for storing stereoscopic images via the
public sTER chunk.
The second goal was to provide a lot of functions for stereoscopic image creation, manipulations and displaying techniques. With the exception of the
LibPng, LibZlib and
LibJpg libraries, the other included source code has been created by me, Adeluc, and it is absolutely free to use.
(I simply hope that you will mention me, Adeluc, in your Special thanks to section, if you use my source code in your application. But do not worry, I will not sue you if you are not doing it.)
The third goal was to provide a well done application to people who like creating stereoscopic images but do not care about the two first goals above.
The developers, whose created
the LibPng, LibZlib and LibJpg libraries, saved me a lot of coding time.
This is why I
decided to do like them by making available my own source
code to help other developers as they did for me.
