Is it possible to convert a 2D video to 3D on Linux?

There are several ways on Windows, one is using an AviSynth script. I tried opening the script with avconv.exe and VirtualDub with Wine and AviSynth, but it fails to load AviSynth.dll.

I think that youtube is capable of converting your video from 2d to 3d! But I don't know much about it. – hakermania May 1 '12 at 20:32
It is, but I'm always working offline. – nastys May 1 '12 at 20:38

I installed AviSynth with Wine 1.3.16 through PlayOnLinux, then I chose "System" version. I replaced DirectShowSource with AviSource in the script and I could open the script with VirtualDub.

One software that can help you is Bino. But, it is just a 3D video player, not a stuff to convert and save them into 3D. I think, recording screen may help if you want to save them into 3D.

Bino can only play 3D videos, it cannot convert and play 2D videos into 3D. – nastys Apr 28 '12 at 12:36

well I didn't find one for linux but if you want to do this using wine as you have already tried with AviSynth script. I just found two softwares to do that of course I haven't tried them.

  1. 3D Video Converter (Free to try (30-minute output file trial); $24.99 to buy)
  2. 2D to 3D Video Converter(Free to try (Limited functionality); $14.95 to buy)
