This tab is designed for modeling images with megapixel resolution which exceeds 3D Video size.

PiP technology allows to model resolutions up to tens of megapixels, as well as save screen working space and reduce generation time of megapixel 3D images.

 

In the 3D Video 2 pictures are displayed simultaneously . One of them is a general view - shows the whole field of view, but with lower resolution. Another picture - a particular view - shows the target region of the field of view, but with the original higher resolution.

 

The target region is outlined by a yellow frame.

 

You can quickly choose the target region on the general view clicking by the middle mouse button (or wheel). If there is no middle button, you can enable control by the left mouse button.

 

With the help of PiP,  the lens distortion can be modeled with real resolution of image.  Without PiP the lens distortion in the 3D Video is modeled with low resolution only. To get image with real resolution while modeling distortion, turn PiP ON. When modeling distortion, the target region of PIP will have real resolution. In case of warping at the image corners while modeling significant distortion, reduce the size of the target region .

 

Another way of modeling megapixel images and distortion with real resolution - use the Real frame size item.

According to camera parameters

 

Scenes of different cameras can demand different positions of the target region and different positions of the little picture in the big picture. Therefore the PiP parameters can be specified for each camera separately.

If this box is checked, PiP parameters on this tab are set according to PIP parameters of the active camera. As a result activation of other camera, PIP parameters will be changed according to PIP parameters of this camera. Manual changing PiP parameters will be disabled.

 

If this box is not checked, PiP parameters could be specified manually. The set parameters will not be changed during activation of different cameras.

Off

 

Turn OFF the PiP mode unconditionally.

 

On

 

Turn ON the PiP mode unconditionally.

 

Auto

 

If this switch is chosen, the PiP mode will be turned ON automatically when resolution of image in the 3D Video exceeds size of the 3D Video in any dimension (in width or in height).

 

Picture in picture

Resolution/Field of view

 

If this box is checked, then particular view is displayed in the little picture outlined by a green frame, which located inside the big picture. The big picture displays the general view.

If this box is not checked,  in the little picture the general view is displayed, but in the big picture the particular view is displayed.

 

Position

 

In this combo box you can choose position of the little picture inside the big picture on unimportant area of image. 6 positions are possible.

 

Size (%)

 

In this combo box you can choose size of the little picture as a % part of the big picture.

 

Target region

Left click

 

You can quickly choose the target region on the general view clicking by the middle mouse button (or wheel) by default. If there is no middle button, you can enable control by the left mouse button, checking this box.

 

Size (%)

 

If the Maximum box is not checked, then the Size (%) box displays the current size of the target region in % of the whole field of view. The Size is calculated automatically.

 

If the Maximum box is checked, then in the Size (%) box you can set the maximum size of the target region in % of the whole field of view.

In case, for exact imaging resolution, it would be required larger target region, then the size of the target region will still not exceed the value in the Size (%) box, but the resolution of a particular view will be reduced.

 

This mode can be useful for comparing resolution of cameras without changing the size of the target region.

 

Maximum

 

See Size (%) above. In the most cases the Maximum box should not be checked.

 

Digital  ZOOM

 

In this box you can choose additional digital ZOOM of the particular view without increasing real resolution. This tool gives the the same effect as Digital ZOOM in cameras.

 

Save to camera

 

Clicking Save button, the view parameters, specified on the PiP tab, will be saved in parameters of the active camera.

Later on, if the According to camera parameters box is marked, the saved parameters will be loaded at each activation of this camera.

At modeling monitors the parameters saved in cameras is always used.

 

If at clicking Save button the Save to selected cameras box is marked, parameter set on the PiP tab will be saved to all selected cameras.
