Stereo viewing provides added depth and realism to your 3D views.
You can visualize your 3D view in stereo with three different methods:
- Using red and blue anaglyph mode
- Using a polarized stereo shutter glass
- By projecting the display for free viewing
Red and blue anaglyph mode displays the 3D view in overlapping red and blue views. When you view these scenes with red and blue stereo viewing glasses, you'll benefit from an enhanced 3D effect.
You can also use a polarizing shutter glass for your computer monitor and specialized accessory glasses that you wear to view in stereo with true color.
Finally, you can display your 3D stereo views projected to an audience using free mode stereo viewing. This sends left and right images to independent projectors, and you view the images with specialized glasses. Shutter glass mode requires a quad-buffer graphics card to accommodate the shutter. Free mode requires a quad-buffer graphics card with dual output to project images in stereo.
Stereo view is only available in ArcScene.
To learn how to set up your display with each of these stereo viewing options, see the following:
