#426 cross-eyed/wall-eyed stereo views are reversed

Jim Fenton


I think that you have the labels reversed for turning on cross-eyed and wall-eyed stereographic views under the style option. In order to view a stereo display of the molecule using cross-eyed viewing, I have to select wall-eyed on your option list. For cross-eyed viewing I look at the right image with my left eye and the left image with my right eye. If I do that with your cross-eyed option the distant atoms visually occlude the nearer atoms. Either the labeling on the views is wrong, or the rotation matrix is applied wrong -- which of course gives you the same result.

Cheers. --jim

    Oh no!

    We had a very long discussion about this months ago, and I thought it had been solved for good.

    Personally, I am hopeless at stereo viewing, so cannot really assert this. But somebody assured us that it was then the other way round, and so the settings were changed.

    Someone should go back and check that that change is still in place in the current versions.

    Jim, please make sure to say which version you have tested.

    Thanks, Jim. It was a mistake in the popup menu. The underlying calculations and documentation are correct. Fixed for 11.5.40.
