MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., â€“ Jan. 5, 2011 â€“ LuxologyÂ® LLC today announced the immediate availability of the companyâ€™s new LuxFolioâ„¢ Stereoscopic Portfolio application, which allows users to view and present stereoscopic images on the iPad or a connected monitor with ease and flexibility. LuxFolio joins the LuxGallery application, which allows users to quickly and easily view and search for computer-generated images found in the company’s extensive Customer Image Gallery. LuxFolio, which was made specifically for the iPad, provides the ability to organize images into slideshows, view them using several stereoscopic presentation techniques and perform various stereo-related image manipulations.
The LuxFolio application allows users to upload stereo-ready images using iTunes File Sharing, or import them from the iPad Photo Album, and then display them using a 3D stereoscopic effect. The images can be produced with special 3D cameras or mounts, or with 3D rendering software such as Luxology’s powerful and easy-to-use modo. LuxFolio will import MPO stereoscopic images, side-by-side stereo images, or pairs of images.
LuxFolio provides three ways of viewing images in stereo: 2-up, wobble and anaglyph. The 2-up mode displays both images side-by-side and is designed to support connected stereoscopic video displays. Wobble mode shifts between left and right views to simulate the act of moving your head side-to-side to see the stereo parallax of a scene. Anaglyph stereo viewing works with commonly available red-blue 3D glasses. This view combines the two sides of the stereo pair using different colors, so that the left image is mostly blocked by the blue filter over the right eye, and the right image is blocked by the red filter over the left eye.
LuxFolio also ships with a sample collection of 18 3D stereo pairs for immediate viewing and lets you organize and present stereo (or standard) images into slideshows with adjustable slide duration, plus manual forward, backwards and pause controls. Full screen iPad viewing is supported with zoom and pan functionality using standard iPad gestures.
â€œThe new LuxFolio app lets customers of modo and various other 3D software packages view their stereo assets on the go,” said Brad Peebler, president and co-founder of Luxology. “We are just beginning to tap into the image presentation and processing capabilities of the iPad and look forward to presenting customers with new and exciting options in the future.”

LuxFolio is available immediately from the Apple app store at a price of USD $2.99.
