Pseudo 3D photo viewer from a depth layer for React using pixi.js.
In 3D computer graphics and computer vision, a depth map is an image or image channel that contains information relating to the distance of the surfaces of scene objects from a viewpoint. The depth map applied to a texture as a displacement filter can achieve a 3D effect, other implementations such as Facebook also allow interpolation of the non-visible areas of the texture when moving in 3D.
The pseudo 3D photo viewer for React uses the pixi.js library and the bit displacement technique from a depth layer to create a 3D effect on photos.
To apply the displacement filter to the texture, the pixi.js function filters.DisplacementFilter(depthMap, 0) is used. This function takes as parameters the depth map and a displacement on the Z axis, and applies the displacement effect to the texture. In addition, some implementations such as Facebook’s also allow interpolation of the non-visible areas of the texture when moving in 3D, increasing the realism of the pseudo 3D photo viewer.
In summary, the pseudo 3D photo viewer for React is a tool that uses the pixi.js library and the bit displacement technique to create a 3D effect on photos using a depth layer. Thanks to its ease of use and optimized performance, this tool is an excellent option for those who want to add a touch of realism to their photos.
