(We are currently working also on a solution working with customer nVidia GTX cards and Stereo Vision, but at the moment there are still some problems with Java 3D compatibility.)
nVidia Quadro FX
ATI Fire GL
CRT with InfraRed adapters and active Shutter Glasses
Planar Monitors with StereoMirror Technique
Windows 7 (32 or 64 bit)
Linux (e.g. Ubuntu)
This tutorial applies to Windows Systems.
Activate 3D Stereoscopy on your Graphic Card
Open the nVidia menu (e.g. by clicking on your desktop and choosing "nVidia System Properties"). Navigate to "3D Properties -> Edit 3D Properties". Make sure "Stereo - active" is switched on and the "Stereo mode" is switched to the correct method. For a CRT with an InfraRed adapter this is usually "Integrated DIN-Connector", for a solution using a cloned window this is the "nView clone mode". If you have to change something make sure you clicked the "Apply" button on the bottom of the page.
If you are using the clone mode in your stereo settings, make sure your monitor is cloned appropriately. Go to Monitor -> Multiple Monitors and activate the clone mode:
Activate 3D Stereoscopy in Eclipse
Now the Stereoscopy mode is switched on for your graphic card. Now you have to tell Eclipse that is should start the MembraneEditor in Stereo Mode.
This does not work with the Web Start version. If you want to use this feature, follow the instructions at Install the MembraneEditor from Source with Eclipse.
In Eclipse, right click on the Cm2_2 project in the Package Explorer and select "Run as ... -> Run Configurations".
Now select in the left part of the window the correct start configuration which is usually "Start". Open the tab "Arguments" on the right side of the window. In the section "VM Arguments", enter:
Then click on "Run" and have a lot of fun!
After starting the MembraneEditor, you should read now this in the console:
Code: Select all
StereoView enabled. Please use the StereoView window to adjust the settings.
Use now the slider in the upper right part of the window to change the intensity of the stereo effect.
