Depth Scanner

Depth Scanner is an Artificial Intelligence-based plug-in for automatic depth estimation. It creates depth maps from still images and even videos.  Note: Depth Scanner is a Windows only plug-in at the moment. It runs on AE 2022 and above

Depth Scanner lets you create depth maps from images and videos. The resulting depth map can be used for a variety of post-processing tasks, like adding fog, converting footage to stereo-3d, and many more image effects.
