STEREO FORMATS AVAILABLE IN THE STILLS FLASH-PLAYER

 

Mono    Non-Stereoscopic Display  This just displays one frame of a 3D left-right pair, or you can Wiggle between the two for quasi-3D.

Mirror-View    See in stereo using a common household or cosmetic mirror!  If you don't have the gear for the other methods below, TRY THIS!!    It works best on large screens (17", or preferably 19"+).   Combine the Mirror selection with Swap to put the mirrored view on the correct side.

Parallel    Right image on the right, left on the left.  Image size should be limited to about 3 inches for comfortable "wide-eyed" viewing.  Simple Prismatic Glasses (costing ~ $3) help a lot !  More sophisticated devices exist for looking at parallel images on your monitor. These instruments include the Pokescope and the ScreenScope.   Select Para in the flash-player's toolbar.

Cross-eyed  Look at the stereo pair by crossing your eyes. Right image on the on left, left on the right.  Not everyone can do this, but if parallel doesn't work give it a shot.  Located under Para in the flash player's list, but use Swap.

Anaglyphs   The left and right stereo information is coded by color (e.g. C_Ana ).  Anaglyphs can be viewed using Anaglyph Glasses that contain red and cyan filters (or other filter pairs).  Machine-generated anaglyphs computed  are often less accurate (in terms of color and ghosting caused by color bleed through) than stereos viewed using other methods.  There are several options available for anaglyph viewing using different types of colored glasses.   Half-color ( H_Ana ) will often have the least rivalries and viewing difficulty.  Full-color may be difficult to view.    

Shutter-Glasses   This is one of the most technologically complicated viewing method, but it allows you to see large-size high-resolution 3D.  Use of this method requires a computer system that will take a full-screen parallel pair and itself convert the output to flicker view. 

Dual-Monitor    This high-tech version of the simple Mirror-View is a very good way to look at digital 3D.  This mode can also be used with a handheld mirror.  Use the mirrored side-by-side format in the flash player.

Int     Line Interlaced     These modes are used to drive advanced digital displays like certain monitors and 3DTV's in which horizontal lines on the display alternate between polarized clockwise and counter-clockwise as you scan up the screen.  If you have one of these sophisticated displays, choose the appropriate one of these modes in the Display bar.
