MakeRDS is a program to calculate professional stereograms of any size from a given TARGA height image. It is a DOS and OS/2 command line utility.
To be able to use MAKERDS, you need an image in TARGA format in which the elevation information is provided (white: objects near to you, black: objects far away from you, grey: objects between black and white ;-) Additionally, you may need a TARGA pattern image (such as "COLORPAT.TGA", provided with MakeRDS). Note: both images, the height image and the pattern image must be non-compressed TARGA type 2 or 3)
When should I use MakeRDS instead of RDSdraw?
Note: MakeRDS is a command line program and is not as easy to use as RDSdraw. But don't be afraid - read the usage chapter and you'll be a master in using MakeRDS ;-)
