This is the answer from Gale after our last discussions on red-blue
I understand that everything is correct as it is, regarding code.
(defaults stereo -5 and stereo redblue 3)
------- Forwarded message follows -------
Using version 11.1.5 at
docs/?ver=11.0#stereo, from the link "in new window using 1crn.pdb"
I issued all commands from the Jmol Console (Menu:Console), not from
the command interface on this page.
For side-by-side stereo pairs, the default (console command:
"stereo") gives cross-eyed viewing (same as console command "stereo
For anaglyphic (red/cyan) stereo, console command "stereo redcyan"
gives correct stereo with red lens over left eye, cyan lens over
right eye. The command "stereo redcyan -3" reverses the stereo,
making it correct for cyan lens over left eye, red lens over right
eye. So the command "stereo redcyan" is the same as the command
"stereo redcyan 3", and assumes red lens on left eye. Is that what
I thought I could tell whether you want red-over-left or red-over-
right by looking at your picture of stereo glasses at
But then I realized that the little picture of red/blue glasses is
ambiguous as to which lens is red. Are the handles of the glasses
pointing toward me, or away? You can see it either way, like a common
type of optical illusion. You need a stereo image of the glasses! Ha!
So do we make the stereo image of the glasses cross-eyed or wall-
eyed? Is it getting nutty in here, or is it just me?
Or better than that, http://www.stolaf.edu/academics/chemapps/jmol/
docs/?ver=11.0#stereo should state specifically which eye should be
covered with red lens.
Hope this helps.
