homemade autostereoscopic 3d monitor:media production problems

Hi :)
I'm a newbie in this forum,but I'm a professional graphician;
I got some problems I hope someone will be able to help me with...lemme tell you my story about it ;)

I made an autostereoscopic display by using a 10 LPI lenticular sheet on a 0.255 mm pixel pitch 17" monitor; It runs lenticules vertically ( withouth any diagonal alignment ,as used by other famous brands ) and it gives me 9 point of views.
I was able to reduce the infamous "banding" , and I have a crisp image and a very nice 3d effect on it , but I got problems with media production.

I'm currently able to make 3d images by using multiview shots , depthmap from stereopairs , and by using photoshop 3d layer compositing features , but problem is..they're just still images.

I know of the existence of MPEG-C part 3 codec ( wich is a MVC , so a Multi View Codec for 3D production) and I know it is going to be the real 3d standard in the future ( cause it's autostereoscopic and more prone to be the nearest thing to reality due to the multiviews and the lack of glasses ) , but problems is how do I use such thing ?
did someone used any 2d+depth codec yet?

I would like to be able to extract a depth map from a 2d video,and to make a 3d video out of it, is there anything I can use ?

I can make a depthmap from a still image and to make a 3d picture out of it , problem is I don't want to do it by hand for hundreds of frames...it tooks days to make one minute of 3d video....
any help ?

Thanx in advance for any possible answer :)
Best Regards - Adrian

PS: feel free to ask me whatever you want :)

a common trick used for movies in photoshop, is to export the movie as a suite of numbered pictures, then batch the work into photoshop.
i think latest version of photoshop allow that.
for previous version there was a plugin Debabelizer Pro.
when all pictures are converted, you can recreate the video from the suite of picture.

Hi Adrian!

Where do you get those 10LPI sheets? Is it enough?
Or do you see it from 5 meter distance?
I think monitors has 80-100LPI resolution.
60LPI sheets will not work better?
