Hello Chimera users,

Recently (December 2015), there have been some questions and comments about Chimera and stereo viewing.  To summarize:

-  Except as noted below, “stereo in a window” (quad-buffer stereo) requires a workstation-class graphics card and a good stereo-capable display.

- We have not found a consumer-class graphics card that does quad-buffer stereo reliably with Windows 10. For using Chimera with stereo glasses and a consumer-grade card, the only configuration we’ve seen work is the following:
   - a Windows 8/8.1 PC 
   - an ATI graphics card supporting HD3D
   - a 3D TV

For more details, please see:
