For a “tinkering” developer there is no satisfaction like trying your code into production and have it working out of the box. I’ve been coding the 3-D stereo support for the multiview branch with no stereoscopic display, so today was the first time I could see it in action… and it works 😉
I tested top-bottom, side-by-side and interlaced (windowed and fullscreen). For interlaced windowed mode the “swap left-right images” is particularly important.
The one thing I didn’t test is the pageflip functionality. I came to the realization that my laptop doesn’t support 120Hz displays. I heard it’s working though, so I’m at ease.
I would like to express my gratitude to Dr. Maria Lantin, director of the Stereographic 3D Centre of Emily Carr university of art + design for so kindly open the doors and let me play with their “toys”. The same goes for her lab research team, in particular Alan Goldman, Denise Quesnel and Sean Arden for taking the time to show their latest (extremely cool) projects and to help setting me up with the 3-D display and projector. And last and not least, for my friend Dr. Barry Po for connecting me with them (thanks Barry!).
For my own records: with the BenQ projector they are using a 3D-XL 3D Projector Adapter from Optoma to convert side-by-side or top-bottom inputs to time-sequential format.
