    So we have JPeg for 2d pics, do you think there will be a new standard for 3d? Such as a picture file with multiple layers so that we can view it in 3d.

    Perverted idea:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    -feel free to edit the title, it seems very ambigous on the front page now that I look at it.

    And here I was, expecting the file extension for the 3DS rom files. [​IMG]


    Maybe .3ds?

    Yes, .mpo's have been around for a while now, but with the 3DS it will be a more widespread format, that's for sure.

    According to some reading, MPO is a rather small file format right now, but with this it may just become the next best thing. Imagine 3d monitor without glasses in the next 10 years becoming a common thing.

    Old CRT monitors did too, I'm sure if they perfect the technology it would be less and less harmful as we go.

    You can use the internet to look these up instead of creating threads on the internet for it.
    I even posted on something where this same question was asked here a few days ago.

    So you're telling us that you spend a lot of time watching porn in public places.

    MPO is a container format. That means that it contains separate files.
    Most likely it contains 2 jpeg pictures when made with the 3DS.

    He said he'd carry his 3DS everywhere... implying in public places.

    Actually Nintendo did a good job here using an existing standard and not inventing anything proprietary.

    The .MPO file format is currently used by Fuji 3D cameras, but the good news is that there is a free tool allowing conversion between .MPO and other formats. See MPO Toolbox. You can easily e.g. extract two JPEGs (each for one eye), create a red-and-cyan version to be used with super-old 3D glasses made of paper, or take a 3D photo shot with another device and convert it into a 3DS-friendly version.

    Hopefully the 3D porn will come soon to 3DS !
