Most of us remember red blue(cyan) 3D glasses. A quirky movie at an amusement park maybe... a comic book companion... Well it turns out that combining this effect with live interactive art displays, especially immersive VR with a large screen/display out, can be pretty interesting.
A person in VR, or even with no headset and just commanding the VR controllers while wearing the red/cyans, can stand near a large screen and manipulate a virtual scene in front of them. An audience wearing these glasses can join in with a semi-immersed look into that world.
Thank you to VJ, interactive artist and Simmetri user, Jordan Schevene, from Paonia, Colorado, for the great idea to do this (one of many great ideas, please keep em coming!). This feature is yours.
How to set it up:
To set up for outputting our stereoscopic image, formatted for red/cyan 3D glasses, we'll need to access the Master Display.
- Select Preferences... from the Edit menu
- Click the 'outputs' tab at the bottom of the preferences panel
- Ensure Master Display is selected from the left Displays list
- Set the Render As drop-down to Stereoscopic (Retro)
- Click OK to close the preferences panel
The Master Display will now render as stereoscopic. We could also do the same for any display we output to.
