Add a Touch of 3D to Your Apps with 3D Interlace Library API
We recently published an article regarding a new feature (that should have been available from release) for the EVO 3D, which allowed users to use 3D pictures as wallpapers on their desktop. This app was developed and published by XDA Forum Member HJ200. It seems that what he did has awaken a somewhat of a sleeping beast in the EVO 3D community, as various people started requesting the dev to let them know how to allow apps to use said feature on other apps and projects.
Due to popular demand, the dev has freely posted the API libs for everyone to use. This means that people trying to add that infamous 3D auto-stereoscopic effect to their newly created images for apps and games can simply do it by adding the code provided by the dev. The code will essentially force the device into 3D mode whenever the app needs it. Just keep in mind that you need to have root to proceed.
Speaking of permissions, as stated before, the dev has posted this code to be used by anyone who wants to use it. However, out of politeness (and really they are his terms), please provide credits in your app(s) pointing to the dev and let the dev know if you do use his code, just as a matter of courtesy.
A lot of people asked for the code to interlace images (used for the 3D Wallpaper Picker).
So here’s a library to use in your own code projects.

Matias Duarte, VP of Design at Google, is perhaps one of the most prolific software designers of recent times: Material Design, the highest exponent of Android beauty, is Matias' own brainchild. Without him and his creation, the biggest Android update of all time wouldn't have been what it was and our favorite platform would still carry a look that many deemed outdated even before Material Design was shown. With an internet following that spawned several internet memes and even a weird community,...
