SDK is supported on Windows 7, Windows 8.x, Windows 10 and it can be freely distributed and used.
Intel Media SDK is probably the only platform providing free MVC-3D encoding capabilities (end of 2013).
FRIM is a free SW package based on patterns and examples from this SDK.
FRIM Decoder (command-line tool) converts elementary or transport streams (MPEG2, H.264 AVC/MVC-3D, H.265 HEVC, VC1) into planar-yuv. Output can be either a regular file or Windows named pipe.
Output to a pipe allows further YUV processing without the consumption of enormous disk space.
FRIM Source is Avisynth plugin for sequential reading of elementary or transport streams (MPEG2, H.264 AVC/MVC-3D, H.265 HEVC, VC1) in Avisynth scripts.
FRIM Export is a plugin for Adobe Premiere Pro (CS6) for direct export and encoding to MPEG2, H.264 AVC/MVC-3D, or H.265 HEVC elementary streams
FRIM Import is a plugin for Adobe Premiere Pro (CS6) for the import of 3D-material recorded in AVCHD-3D format (produced by camcorders like Sony HXR-NX3D1 or Panasonic Z10000).
FRIM Import and FRIM Export together support rendering workflow without re-encoding to any intermediate format.
