Hi Cenk,

  Chimera can display 3D stereo using polarized glasses.  You use the “sequential stereo” option for “Camera Mode” in the Tools / Viewing Controls / Camera.  You will of course need the hardware to be able to enable that mode — a workstation graphics card that can do quad-buffered stereo and a polarized display — but if you have all that working for other 3D applications then Chimera should work too.
