I'm in the process of building a new PC, and decided that it was time to make sure it could do 3D well.
I was thinking of going with the AMD/ATI HD3D system and appropriate monitor. So looking for reccomendations.
I have worked with 3D long ago with the active LCD shutter systems that were keyed to the interlace of NTSC/PAL signal. One eye would get the even field, the other eye would get the odd field. This worked well with some old campy 3D movies on video tape.
The primary researchy use was using Amiga computers (remember those?). They supported NTSC/PAL and could do the same interlace scheme as TV's. This allowed for reasonably easy creation of 3D video loops and display sequences using DeluxePaint - it is easy to control the two eyes images.
SO, I'm looking for a similar ability.
what got me going on this again was the recent announcement of HP's new 2311gt monitor that uses "Film Patterned Retarder (FPR)" to control the image to each eye. http://www.engadget.com/2011/11/07/hp-embraces-this-3d-thing-outs-2311gt-monitor-second-gen-wirel/
However this monitor may not be a good general 3D solution.
While my primary interest is in my own binocular imagry (not necessarily 3D generated) I would like to be able to do some 3D gaming and 3D BluRay watching.
