[Chimera-users] Auto-Stereo 3D

We are always interested in new 3d viewing technologies. However, any 
support for new technologies would be done as part of ChimeraX, 
https://www.rbvi.ucsf.edu/chimerax/, the Chimera successor.    With our 
limited resources, it's unlikely that we would implement anything soon, 
but we would welcome and assist a contributed ChimeraX bundle.

I'd like to suggest that instead of waiting for AS3D to become a viable 
option, that you either get a stereo 3D projector for presenting 3D to 
groups, similar to a movie theatre, or a VR headset for single person 
3D.  Those appear to be the only available long term solutions right 
now.  If you can find a 3D TV anymore, that would work too.

And don't forget that Chimera and ChimeraX require a workstation 
graphics card for stereo 3D -- so a mid- to high-end AMD FirePro or 
NVIDIA Quadro.
