Exceptional 3D Content Creation Suite Software

Zlice 3D Compositing Software



z.l.i.c.e.3D is a professional video editing and compositing application especially designed for multi-view 3D footage. If you need to edit multiple video streams simultaneously, make color adjustments, add different effects or change the 3D depth parameters then z.l.i.c.e.3D might be just what you have been looking for. Every change can be previewed immediately on any attached 3D display device, supported by our Display Configurator.

In version 3 we added many new features to make the content creation process easier than ever before! Profit by native 64bit support, H.264 capabilities, improves keyframe handing, a better workflow and much more.z.l.i.c.e. 3D version 3 can also be enhanced by major stereo to multi-view conversion capabilities through the optional Stereo Tools *Plug-in.

2D to 3D Conversion

z.l.i.c.e.3D offers special 2D to 3D conversion features like shape tracking with animatable splines and a paint tool.

If you are more often working with stereo footage you should take a look into our Stereo Tools *Plug-in * The Stereo Tools are an optional, separately sold plug-ins for z.l.i.c.e.3D version 3.x. They provide additional functionality for stereo to multi-view conversion like an automatic depth map estimation, view interpolation and image rectification. .

z.l.i.c.e.3D needs following minimum system configuration:
CPU Intel i5 Processor with at least 1.6GHz or any higher Intel Processor

Stereo Tools – Plug-in



Stereo Tools for z.l.i.c.e.3D* is a plug-in collection of special nodes and a powerful tool to convert two-view stereo footage into multi-view content for usage with autostereoscopic 3D displays.

We provide two different methods to convert a stereo pair to multiple views. The first one is a pure view interpolation between the two original views. This is a simple and fast solution but it will also reduce the depth impression. The second method involves the automatic estimation of the 3D depth and save it in a disparity map.


• 32 & 64 bit

• Depth-Map creation for left and right view

• Operates with 32bit per channel depending on source footage

• High resolution support up to 4K

• Two different operation methods (Adaptive, Locally consistent)

• Selectable color space (RGB & YUV)

• 1:1, 1:2, 1:4 working resolutions available for additional Speed/Quality gain

• Save multiple setting presets and assign them to different frame ranges

• Region of interest definition (e.g. crop letter box)

• Using GPU and all available CPUs

• All internal scaling operate on Lanczos3

• Side by Side, Up or Down & Interlaced can also be selected as input format

• DPX, CIN, R3D, MXF (Multi view), OpenEXR (SXR) through z.l.i.c.e. 3.0 supported

• Flicker mode with speed value for view comparison Inter- & extrapolation up to 32 views

• Disparity (Range) measure lines (2 parallel lines moveable to get range value)

• Camera rectification through calibration pattern footage
