StereoMovie Maker functions both as a versatile stereo movie editor and stereo movie player.

It supports most stereo viewing methods.

- IZ3d monitor

- Freeviewing(Parallel-eyed or Cross-eyed)

- Anaglyph (red/cyan or yellow/blue color anaglyphs or red-cyan/ red-green/ red-blue/ yellow-blue monochrome anaglyphs)

- Liquid Crystal Shutter Glasses (Interlacing or Page Flipping) currently requires Winx3D, the NVidia Stereo Driver, Nvidia 3D Vision or a graphics card supporting quad-buffered OpenGL.

Winx3D is no longer available from the original website.
This was discussed on 'stereo3d' forum and a Link given for the archived documentation.

Alternatively, RivaTuner may be used to patch an NVidia GeForce to a 'Quadro' making OpenGL stereo and other 'professional' features available.

OpenGL stereo is the only mode that lets you display a stereo image in a normal window.
After installation of any of the drivers, test various monitor refresh-rates at the required resolutions, otherwise the monitor may default to 60Hz which will produce very visible blinking.

Position and Frame No. of the left-right movie can be adjusted very easily.
