Sirds lets you create Single Image Random Dot Stereogram (SIRDS) and Single Image Stereogram (SIS) images.

  • Generate a "wall-eyed" (divergent) or "cross-eyed" (convergent) stereogram
  • Customizable dimensions (resolution, observer distance, maximum depth, and eye separation)
  • Hidden-surface removal
  • Center to both sides method to minimize the distortion
  • Oversampling to give smooth depth levels
  • Stereogram viewing guide marks
  • Random Dot pattern generator
  • Supported depth map and pattern image file types: PNG, TIFF, JPEG, BMP, GIF, PICT, etc.
  • AppleScript scripting

SIRDS or SIS is an autostereogram which does not require any equipment to view a three-dimensional scene.

* Stereogram algorithm licensed from W.A. Steer. Visit www.techmind.org for technical details.
