8.3.5 Confocal Assistant - Generating Dynamic 3-D Views
8.3.5 Moving a 3-D scene gives more information to the visual cortex.
8.3.4 Two main ways exist for creating 3D views: 1. Stereo pairs, 2. red/green anaglyphs. Both these methods produce a rendered view from a z-series stack. A rendered projection is generated of two views separated by about 6 (or up to about 12 degrees), which is the angle subtended by the gaze of eyes to a close object. Views must be rotated about the vertical axis. The distance between the centers of the image must be chosen carefully for comfortable viewing.
