[Chimera-users] Question about 3D visualization by chimera

Here’s a list of the camera mode options in Chimera, accessible from the dialog that Tom mentioned (menu: Tools… Viewing Controls… Camera):
If you already have polarized glasses and a screen that works with them, you could see if any of the “row” or “sequential” options work.
The lowest-tech options for any color display of Chimera are red-cyan or green-magenta “anaglyph”
…for which you can get inexpensive glasses that are just made of cardboard and plastic. However, that approach does limit the range of colors you can see clearly at the same time.
I hope this helps,

Display hardware can potentially use any of those formats. Chimera allows the sequential and row interleaved options but not top/bottom or left/right which stack the two eye images vertically or horizontally into a single image.

>>> 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.
