A software system for the offine conversion of 2D films to 3D stereoscopic films is presented. We call this conversion
process Dimensionalization. The software combines user input with automated techniques to choreograph the depth found
within each shot. The Dimensionalization process is discussed from a technical and an artistic point of view.
The Dimensionalization of a film requires a depth script to be defined. This script lays out the artistic choices of the
director. The use of positive and negative parallax is discussed in relation to the depth script. Additionally, the relative
number of objects given depth values must also be defined. The software adjusts the parallax to maintain the depth script
when outputting for different display devices. Example scenarios are presented.
