Range of values [0,1,2]
Writing two left-right-separated images:
0: No files for separate images are generated.
1: Two files for the left and right images are written into the path, given with the PathofImages, one <name>_cl.* and one <name>_cr.*, with "_cl" means correct left and "_cr" means correct right.
2: The files will be tored into the subdirectories \cl and \cr of PathofImages. Attention: If you have set AviOutput = 9, alle single frames will be stored also into the same subdirectory \clr.
3: As 1 with identifiers "_os" for oculus sinister and "_od" for oculus dexter.

StereoOutput (/SO=2)

Range of values [0,1,2]
Writing one side-by-side stereo image:
0: No side-by-side mounted image file is generated.

2: The file is stored into the subdirectory \cs of PathofImages.

AnaglyphOutput (/AO=2)

Range of values [0,1,2]
Stores as anaglyph images:
0: No anaglyph image file is generated.
1: An anaglyph image file <name>_ca.* is written into the directory PathofImages. Here "_ca" means correct anaglyph.
2: The files is stored into subdirectory \ca of PathofImages.

ExtraOutput (/EX=0)

Range of values [0,5]
Additional image output for special purposes. All additional images will be stored into the subdirectory .\ce_xxx\. xxx is a layout identificator.
0: No additional output images.
1: This writes a 1:2 squeezed side-by-side (SBS-H) mounted image with the ending "-lrq". The subdirectory identificator is "_lrq".
2: This writes a top-and-bottom (TAB) mounted image (left one on the top) with the ending "-ab". The subdirectory identificator is "_ab".
3: This writes a 1:2 squeezed top-and-bottom (TAB-H) mounted image with the ending "-abq". The subdirectory identificator is "_abq".
4: An interlaced image will be created (first line left, e.g for ACER 5740DG) with the ending "-eo". The subdirectory identificator is "_eo".
5: An MPO image will be created (for compatibility with JPG-Subsampling 4:2:0). The subdirectory identificator is "_mpo".
Hint: Some stereo viewer software (e.g. the Stereoscopic Player) evaluate the layout identificator automatically to display the images. For that application, the minus sign ("-") must be used in the filenames instead of the (general with Cosima used) underline ("_").

Outputformat (/OF=0)

Range of values [0-9]
Setting the graphic format of the output images:
0: Resulting images will be written using the original file format.
1: Resulting images will be written using the jpg format.

9: Resulting images will be written using the tif format (CMYK, 32bit/pixel) with the application of a color space transformation according to sRGB to CMYK_Profile.

Attention: With the Outputformat = 7 (48Bit/Pixel) there are the following limitations at the moment:
- CroppInput != 2, no scaling of the smaller input image
- only LeftRightOutput, StereoOutput and ExtraOutput = 2, for the other output options (e.g. anaglyph) partly fallback to Outputformat = 5 (24Bit/Pixel)
- only InterpolationMode = 2, bi-cubic interpolation
- only IrfanSharpen = 0, no post sharpening with IrfanView
- only RotMirOutput = 0, no mirroring or rotation of the output image
- only GammaCorrection = 0, no gamma correction with the interpolation
- only AutoGhostbust = 0, no cross-over compensation
- only ExtColorManagement = 0, no apply of external color profiles (e.g. Infitec)
- only CaptionText empty, no caption
- only ImageText empty, no text inside of the image
- only InterlacedMode = 0, no interlaced input images

Attention: Please read the Color Profile EULA.pdf in the cmyk directory

CompressBitmap (/CO=1)

Range of values [0,1]
This activates for tif- and png-output files a lossless run length type compression (like as zipped):
0: Writes uncompressed files.
1: Writes compressed files.

JPG_Quality (/JQ=100)

Range of values [1, 100]
Parameter to set the write quality of jpg images. For this conversion the color subsampling is always switched off.

IrfanSharpen (/IS=0)

Range of values [0, 99]
Intensity for post-sharpening:
0: Post-sharpening deactivated.
unequal 0: Parameter to set the strongness of the post-sharpening. This parameter will be passed to IrfanView.

IdentOutputDir (/ID=)

Range of values: characters
Using this parameter, the names of the resulting directories can be additionally modified.The text given here will be added to the standard names cl, cr, cs and ca. Example: With IdentOutputDir = '_1920' you get the directory names cl_1920, cr_1920, cs_1920 and ca_1920.

StampFiles (/ST=1)

Range of values [0,1,2,3]
Enables the integration of additional information into the filenames.
0: No change of the filename.
1: Integration of the deviation as a 3-digit promille value into the filenames.
2: Date and time using the format yyyy.mm.dd_hh.mm.ss are included into the filename. This enables the run of batchjobs with different parameter settings on the same images.
3: Both deviation and date /time are included into the file names.
Attention: The reference of the relative deviation is dependent on the parameters Projection Ratio. The deviation can refer to the image width or the width of the projected image.
If it refers to the width of the projection image, one of the following identifiers is added: "(4;3)" for an aspect ratio of 4:3, "(16;10)" for 16:10, "(16;9)" for 16:9 and "(Kino)" for 2048:1080.

CroppOutput (/CR=2)

Range of values [0-4]
Method for output cropping:
0: The output image remains completely unframed. Attention: In this case no proper stereo window is achieved.
1: The output image will be framed with a not necessarily rectangular frame. The passepartout shape is taken from the input image.
Hint: When deshaking videos, CroppOutput is forced to be 1, to enable the setting of (internal) mask information.
2: The output image will be rectangularly cut, the result is edgeless. Some image content and all passepartout information are lost. Image will be cropped to match proportions of OutputHeight and OutputWidth when both are set.
3: The output image will be rectangularly fit in a box OutputHeight times OutputWidth without loosing any image content. With portrait format images, the value OutputHeight is matched, for landscape format images, the value of OutputWidth is matched - in each case the other value will be smaller than set.
4: Cutting to a fixed output ratio, which is set by the parameters OutputHeight and OutputWidth, e.g. OutputHeight = 9 and OutputWidth = 16 give a ratio of OutputWidth/OutputHeight = 16:9.
5: Similar as 4 with always keeping the longer image edge, so OutputWidth/OutputHeight = 16/9 and OutputWidth/OutputHeight = 9/16 will produce the same result. Attention: With CroppOutput = 4 or 5, you may change the image ratio still afterwards, when opening the Cosima Viewer and using there the key commands 1/2/3/4/5 (in this order you get: 1:1, 5:4, 3:2, 16:9, 2:1). With the keys Shift 2/Shift 3/Shift 4/Shift 5 you get 4:5, 2:3, 9:16 and 1:2.

OutputHeight (/OH=0)

Range of values [0,16384] pixel
Wanted height of output image. If set not equal 0, the output images will be scaled to this pixel height. The final number of pixels is normally some pixels less. If exact values are needed, ForceSize = 1 has to be set at the same time. The output width will be scaled proportional. If both, OutputWidth and OutputHeight are set not equal 0, the output image will be framed or cut, dependent on the value of CroppOutput.

Attention: The maximum image size 16384x16384 pixel can only be guaranteed with setting ForceSize = 0. If ForceSize is set equal 1, the maximum value is somewhat below and dependent on the image correction values!

OutputWidth (/OW=0)

Range of values [0,16384] pixel
Wanted width of output image. If set not equal 0, the output images will be scaled to this pixel width. The final number of pixels is normally some pixels less. If exact values are needed, ForceSize = 1 has to be set at the same time. The output height will be scaled proportional. If both, OutputWidth and OutputHeight are set not equal 0, the output image will be framed or cut, dependent on the value of CroppOutput.

Attention: The maximum image size 16384x16384 pixel can only be guaranteed with setting ForceSize = 0. If ForceSize is set equal 1, the maximum value is somewhat below and dependent on the image correction values!
With CroppOutput = 3, OutputHeight and OutputWidth will set the values for a box, to which the image will be fit, and with CroppOutput = 4, the values of OutputHeight and OutputWidth indicate the ratio of the height to the width.

ForceSize (/FS=1)

Range of values [0,1]
Forces pixel exact images sizes:
0: The width and the height of the output images are either the values of the input values or the values given by OutputWidth and OutputHeight - reduced by some pixels if the edges will be cropped after the correction.
1: In this case, the output images will be scaled (before) to match (after cropping) the exact target values.

RotMirOutputLeft (/ML=0)

Wertebereich [0-7]
Range of values [0-7]
Rotates and mirrors the left output. With this parameter it is possible to rotate and mirror the left output image:
0: No input rotation/mirroring at all.
1: Rotation by +90 degree (no mirroring).
2: Rotation +180 degree (no mirroring).
3: Rotation +270 degree (no mirroring).
4: Horizontal mirroring (left-right).
5: Rotation +90 degree and horizontal mirroring.
6: Vertical mirroring (same as rotation +180 degree and horizontal mirror).
7: Rotation by +270 degree and horizontal mirroring.

RotMirOutputRight (/MR=0)

Range of values [0-7]
Rotates and mirrors the right output. With this parameter it is possible to rotate and mirror the right output image.
0: No input rotation/mirroring at all.
1: Rotation by +90 degree (no mirroring).
2: Rotation +180 degree (no mirroring).
3: Rotation +270 degree (no mirroring).
4: Horizontal mirroring (left-right).
5: Rotation +90 degree and horizontal mirroring.
6: Vertical mirroring (same as rotation +180 degree and horizontal mirror).
7: Rotation by +270 degree and horizontal mirroring.

Examples:

Halfmirror-separated TFTs (CoBox): RotMirOutputLeft = 0, RotMirOutputRight = 4; top-and bottom or View-Magic (upper = right): RotMirOutputLeft = 3, RotMirOutputRight = 3;

InterpolationMode (/IP=4)

Range of values [0-5]
Controls method of image interpolation:
0: There will be no interpolation, the nearest point is selected.
1: Two-dimensional linear interpolation.
2: Two-dimensional cubic interpolation, theoretically somewhat better than bilinear.
3: Gauss filter, use it specially for downscaling images (smoothing).
4: Automatic choose of the best method. If the ratio output-image-size/input-image-size is smaller than 2/3 (strong downsizing the images) the Gauss filter (InterpolationMode = 3) is used, otherwise the bicubic interpolation (InterpolationMode = 2) method is choosen.
5: As 4, but including additionally sharpening, if the Gauss filter is activ (IrfanSharpen = image-width/60 is used for that).

GammaCorrection (/GA=1.0)

Range of values [0.0, 10.0]
Power factor for gamma correction. Interpolation methods always need a gamma correction in the interpolation area. Unfortunately this reduces the dynamic of color representation. Though, with photos a value of 1.0 (no correction at all) is recommended (according to Prof. Helmut Dersch) - with graphics 2.4 has been proven to be adequate.

InverseOutput (/IO=0)

Range of values [0,1]
Changes left and right output image. This Parameter makes only sense, if StereoOutput = 1 is set.
0: Writes sidecorrect mounted stereo images.
1: Writes inverse mounted stereo images (left/right exchanged). Should be set with "*.jps."-files.

FillHeight (/FH=0)

Range of values [0,16384] pixel
Filling with frame to a given the image height. If this value is unequal 0, a frame is added at the upper and lower border of the image with resulting an image height of exactly FillHeight pixel. In that case, the values of the parameters FrameTop and FrameBottom are ignored.

FillWidth (/FW=0)

Range of values [0,16384] pixel
Filling with frame to a given the image width. If this value is unequal 0, a frame is added at the left and right border of the image with resulting an image width of exactly FillWidth pixel. In that case, the value of the parameter FrameLeftRight is ignored. For the side-by-side mounted stereo image, the complete width is equal = 2*FillWidth + FrameCentral pixels.

FrameTop (/FT=0)

Range of values [0,1024] pixel
Frame broadness at the top. A frame with FrameTop pixel is added at the upper image border. (Is only evaluated for FillHeight = 0.)

FrameBottom (/FM=0)

Range of values [0,1024] pixel
Frame broadness at the bottom. A frame with FrameBottom pixel is added at the lower image border. (Is only evaluated for FillHeight = 0.)

FrameLeftRight (/FL=0)

Range of values [0,1024] pixel
Frame broadness left and right. A frame with FrameLeftRight pixel is added at the left and right image border. (Is only evaluated for FillWidth = 0.)

FrameCentral (/FC=0)

Range of values [-1024,1024] pixel
Frame broadness inbetween the two images. To the stereo output image (only StereoOutput) a central stripe can be added. FrameCentral is the width of this additional stripe in pixel.

FrameFloating (/FA=0)

Range of values [-1024,1024] pixel
Additional shift of an existing frame by the given pixel value. Either with FillWidth or with FrameLeftRight a frame must be created with at least a resulting width of FrameFloating/2 pixel. Examples:
FrameLeftRight = 20 and FrameFloating = 0 creates on the left and on the right hand side a frame with each 20 pixel.
FrameLeftRight = 20 and FrameFloating = -10 creates inwards a frame with 15 pixel and outwards with 25 pixel (shift of 10 pixel).
FrameLeftRight = 20 and FrameFloating = -20 creates inwards a frame with 10 pixel and outwards with 30 pixel (shift of 20 pixel).
FrameLeftRight = 20 and FrameFloating = -40 creates inwards a frame with 0 pixel and outwards with 40 pixel (shift of 40 pixel).
In all cases a floating and symmetric stereo window will be created in front of the screen.

AutoFrameFloating (/AR=0)

Range of values [0-6]
Selects the method for automatically setting floating stereo windows.
0: No floating stereo window are created.
1: The (unchanged) images are laterally shifted against each other by adding frames until the given far point disparity is reached.
This method is not available, if far point framing (EstimateWindow = 4/5) is choosen!
2: Similar to 1, but the image size is automatically reduced to the extent, that the sum from the frame width and the usable image content corresponds exactly to OutputWidth. The width of the usable image content allone is therefore less than OutputWidth.
This method is not available, if far point framing (EstimateWindow = 4/5) is choosen!
3: On the left and on the right edge, disturbing image parts are covered with curtains to avoid violations of the stereo window. The image content is varied, the image width remains constant. Stereo window violations at the bottom and top of the image will be assigned both to the left and right hand side of the image.
This method is not available, if near point framing (EstimateWindow = 2/3) is choosen!
4: Similar to 3, with the inner edges will be smoothed by a transparent gradient covering a range of about 1 percent of the image width.
This method is not available, if near point framing (EstimateWindow = 2/3) is choosen!
5: Similar to 3, but stereo window violations at the top and at the bottom will be ignored.
6: Similar to 4, but stereo window violations at the top and at the bottom will be ignored.
Attention: The far point disparity for AutoFrameFloating = 1,2 is to be given in the small box next to the selection window of AutoFrameFloating (Parameter FloatingTarget). For AutoFrameFloating = 3,4, an additional space between the near point and the curtains can be specified, again using the parameter Floating Target. The unit for the parameter FloatingTarget is specified with the parameter WinOffReference.

FloatingTarget (/FE=33)

Range of values [0,99]
Extended setting for parameter AutoFrameFloating.
AutoFrameFloating = 1,2: Farpoint disparity limit
AutoFrameFloating = 3,4: Extra disparity between nearpoint and curtain
Attention: The unit for the parameter FloatingTarget is specified with the parameter WinOffReference.

FrameColorRed (/FR=0)

Range of values [0,255]
Red color value of the frames and the central stripe.

FrameColorGreen (/FG=0)

Range of values [0,255]
Green color value of the frames and the central stripe.

FrameColorBlue (/FB=0)

Range of values [0,255]
Blue color value of the frame and the central stripe.

ThinBlackLine (/TB=0)

Range of values [0,255]
Number of pixels for the thickness of a black line between image and frames. Preferred for making of stereo cards (cs-image). The black lines are created with cl, cr, cs, ce-lrq, ce-ab, ce-abq and ce-mpo, but not with ca- and ce-eo images.
