As per some requests I made some stereoscopic 3D screenshots from a mobile stereo 3D game and more specifically the game Asphalt 6: Adrenaline 3D by Gameloft on the LG Optimus 3D smartphone. The screenshots are with three different 3D volume levels – minimum, medium and maximum as all of Gameloft’s stereoscopic 3D games have a slider for user control of the three-dimensional depth. Click on the image to see the full resolution Side by Side pair, the screenshots are with half horizontal resolution (squashed). The first 3D screenshot with minimum depth you see above is making the game pretty much look the same as in 2D mode, so instead of minimal depth you better switch to 2D mode and enjoy the game in full resolution.
For taking the screenshots on the LG Optimus 3D smartphone I’ve used the free Android application called ShootMe that worked pretty well and was able to capture stereoscopic 3D screenshots without serious issues, although not all went perfect with all screenshots. The above 3D screenshot is with the default medium 3D depth level that is supposed to work well for most people, even if they are new to mobile stereo 3D gaming.
The third screenshot is with the maximum 3D depth level and it provides stronger feeling of volume, so you should not start with it generally if you are new to stereo 3D as you may get tired quickly, get dizzy or a headache. I have taken a few more screenshots from the games bundled with the LG Optimus 3D smartphone – Asphalt 6 3D, Let’s Golf! 2 3D and NOVA 3D, you will can download them from the link below. As you will notice due to the reduced horizontal resolution in stereo 3D mode the straight lines inside games and the sharpness of details may not be great when you are looking at the screenshots on your PC, but they do look much better on the autostereoscopic 3D screen of a 3D-capable mobile phone.
