Frank,
 
We no longer have access to Sharp3D equipment, but here is the last PyMOL build known to work with that monitor:  http://delsci.com/sharp3d/
 
The general feedback from from demos was that these small low-resolution monitors are not sufficient to meet molecular graphics needs.  However, the Sharp3D technology might be viable at higher display resolutions, such as 1600x1200 or 1920x1080, if such products were ever introduced. 
 
Dimension technologies http://www.dti3d.com/ has a 1280x1024 auto-stereoscopic 3D display which uses a related technology, which, from what I understand, does not require customized software builds to drive it.
 
Cheers,
Warren

Subject: [PyMOL] Stereo on Sharp LCD

Hi,

 

I’m testing the Sharp 3D LCD monitor (LL-151-3D) using PyMOL 0.99rc6.  By simply pressing the “3D” button on the monitor without enabling any stereo in PyMOL, it appears to show somewhat enhanced depth.  However, if I enable the quad-buffered stereo in PyMOL, the picture is just smeared.  I was wondering if special version of PyMOL is needed, as well as specific graphic cards.  If so, is such version of PyMOL available for purchase or download.  Or, this is just the best the monitor can do. 

 

Thank you very much.

 

Frank
