stereo displays

Hi everyone,

I put some code into VisBio a while ago to enable stereo displays for Java3D displays. I just copied the logic from TestStereo that gets a GraphicsConfiguration with stereo enabled, if one is available, and uses it when constructing a new DisplayImplJ3D.

Recently a user told me that the stereo looks wrong on his machine, like the image is way too close to the eye or something. I have no stereo setup of my own to debug this, but I did browse around the Java3D FAQ a little and found out that you're supposed to call Canvas3D.setStereoEnable(true) somewhere in order to toggle stereo on (http://java3d.j3d.org/faq/stereo.html). I noticed that nowhere in the VisAD source code is this call made. So, is it actually necessary? Could this be causing a problem like the user described? Anyone have experience enabling stereo for VisAD/Java3D?

Thanks,
Curtis
