Included Applications


3D Carousel

The first difference you will notice when opening 3D Media Center is that it really is 3D and provides a completely different experience to other media centers. Powered by a central 3D carousel which can be operated by any PC remote control, keyboard or mouse. You can personalize 3D Media Center with your own backgrounds and skins to make it look the way you want.



3D Capture

3D Capture makes it easy to transfer video from camcorders, web-cams or any other WDM capture device to your PC. You can also capture VCRs, Satellite TV and any other device via your graphic card's Video In Video Out (VIVO) port. 3D Capture now includes scene detection to automatically separate your video footage into a number of individual clips which you can easily import into your project.

ShowMe Tutorials

"ShowMe" Tutorials walk you through the program and show you step by step how to use its features. This is like looking over the shoulder of your very own person from customer support as they demonstrate and talk you through how to use the program. ShowMe tutorials create a second mouse icon and this is used to operate 3D Media Center showing by example with narration how to use each feature.

3D Edit Silver V4

3D Edit Silver V4 has been designed to make editing both simple and instant. Catering for the newbie all the way through to the experienced user. It's the first editor in the World to use a new technology called "On Chip Rendering" which mixes video and adds effects in true real-time. By true real-time we mean instantaneously. No other consumer editor can even come close the power of 3D Edit which can play all special effects, all transitions and all 8 tracks at full resolution in full screen and in real-time.


Real-time editing gives you more time to play and have fun with your video. You can experiment with special effects from the games industry and use 3D Edit to raise the production value of your video be it a 15 second clip, a 15 minute short or a 150 minute epic. 



3D Edit Silver V4 includes all you need to organize your video into useable sized clips. You can drag and drop these into any of 3D Edit's 16 video tracks or add audio using 22 audio tracks and an advanced audio mixer with audio effects.


You can easily correct the color of your video or adjust its lighting using color correction tools. Montages of video and Picture in Picture can be created instantly using any track  along with spectacular 3D transitions that join your clips with TV type professionalism.

Most video editors display a compressed low quality version of your video within the interface. You never know exactly what the video will look like until you render it. With 3D Edit Silver V4's "On Chip Rendering" capability, the raw video is mixed and displayed at full resolution all the time so you always know what the final version looks like. We call this true WYSIWYG editing (What You See Is What You Get) and it makes the whole video editing experience faster, more accurate and more creative.  


Shaderman is built into 3D Edit Silver V4 and enables special effects called shaders to be added to videos. Shaders were originally developed in Hollywood for movies such as Star Wars, Alien and many more where they are used to process digital film. Tenomichi has taken this technology and opened it up so you can now add Shader Special Effects to your own videos. 



Shaderman is optimized for standard definition effects. Shaderman's real-time capabilities mean you can have 10 simultaneous effects running on any video clip all in real-time. With up to 12 different settings on each effect and the ability to control each parameter with key-frames, there are literally billions of potential effects possible.

Once your masterpiece is complete 3D Edit Silver V4 can record to many popular formats including DV, WMV, MP4, 3GP, Divx, Xvid. You can record video so it can be uploaded onto the internet or sent as email or played on popular home media centers and portable devices like the iPOD, PSP and mobile phones.

PC Browser

Browse your computer's hard drive with a remote control and play any audio or video file. Use all your remote control's play, pause and back functions. Your left and right buttons on your control can be used to rapidly traverse directories for fast browsing.

3D Mobile

This handy utility enables you to convert your movies and videos so they can be watched on your mobile phone or portable device. Support for MP4 and 3GP means devices such as Nokia, Samsung and Motorola phones can be use as well as iPOD and PSPs.

3D Slideshow

Create simple slide shows with an added bonus. Unlike any other slide show tools, 3D Slideshow displays your photos at the full resolution. So if your camera takes 5 Mega pixel images then they are displayed as 5 Mega pixel images. Even if your PC screen or TV does not support these high resolutions, displaying images with 3D Slideshow will still improve the on screen quality.


Free Update released Q2 2007. DVB software player plays digital terrestrial and satellite TV.

NVIDIA® PureVideo™ Bronze DVD decoder 

This DVD decoder is used to play DVDs and can also be used with Microsoft's Media Center. The same decoder is used to play and edit HDTV MPEG2 files. MPEG2 HDTV is the accepted standard for most cable TV companies and is four times the resolution of DVD.



Its ability to playback High Definition video files and recorded TV footage (.TS) with high accuracy is second to none. This is one of, if not the best DVD and HD video decoders available. Supports video playback of DVDs, video files and captured TV footage at 720p, 1080i and 1080p.

3D DVD Player

See the true color and sharpness of your DVDs with 3D DVD Player powered by NVIDIA® PureVideo™. This DVD player enables automatic up-sampling of your videos from standard to high definition so your DVDs look great on your new, large LCD TV. Its unique interface can be completely controlled with any standard Windows remote control and includes Dolby Digital Stereo playback and Dolby 5.1 via your PCs SPDIF socket.



3D DVD's unique dragable controls and full screen controls make it easy to use and provide the highest quality DVD viewing experience.

D3DVideo System Test

3D Media Center includes a benchmark tool called D3DVideo Benchmark which calculates your computers speed and records a certificate. The speed of your PC is measured in frames per second and you can compare your frames per second with other people who have a similar computer. D3DVideo is a good indicator of your overall system performance as it stresses your PC. You'll be amazed how simply updating a driver can create a much faster PC experience.

FREE Automatic Updates

Tenomichi has pledged to support its 3D Media Center community with FREE updates and new FREE applications for your carousel. Each time 3D Media Center is started, the Automatic Update system checks with our database to see if there are any new updates.
