The Splitter takes a stacked input image—for example, created with the Combiner—and provides two output images: a left eye and a right eye.
Splitter Node Inputs
The two inputs on the Splitter node are used to connect the left and right images.
- Left Input: The orange input is used to connect a stacked stereo image.
Splitter Node Outputs
Unlike most nodes in Fusion, the Splitter node has two outputs for the left and right eye.
- Left Output: This outputs the left eye image.
- Right Output: This outputs the right eye image.
Splitter Node Setup
Below, a stacked stereo image is connected to the input on a Splitter where a left and right eye is output.
Splitter Node Controls Tab
The Controls tab is used to define the type of stacked image connected to the node’s input.
The Split menu contains three options for determining the orientation of the stacked input image.
- None: No operation takes place. The output image on both outputs is identical to the input image.
- Horiz: The node expects a horizontally stacked image. This will result in two output images, each being half the width of the input image.
- Vert: The node expects a vertically stacked image. This will result in two output images, each being half the height of the input image.
Allows you to easily swap the left and right eye outputs.
Splitter Node Settings Tab
The Settings tab in the Inspector is also duplicated in other Stereo nodes. These common controls are described in detail HERE.
