Subject: Chimera Suggestion

We've had a minor resurgance of stereo work in the lab recently. We have
a couple of SGI's still with the standard shutter-glasses, and a single PC with
a CRT and an active stereo capable projector. We tried the Sharp
autostereographic monitor, but it works only so-so, and gives me a headache
almost instantly.  It would be really useful to have simple stereo set up for
occasional use on all of the desktop machines in the lab (which have normal LCD
panels now).

Anyway, I was just wondering if you guys thought about implementing analglyph
(red/blue glasses) stereo ?  I've done this manually for snapshots using the
'left eye' and 'right eye' mode in chimera to get the separation right, and it
works surprisingly well as long as you don't mind sacrificing color. It would be
very useful to have this available for interactive use.  Any chance ?  (it's
also very useful for posters, since many people can't do the eye-crossing thing).

Just a suggestion  :^)
