Using the Latest TriDef 3D with 3D Monitors with the OEM Software

February 28th, 2012 · 4 Comments · Other S3D Tech

If you have purchased a 3D-capable monitor that comes bundled with a OEM version of the TriDef 3D software for use in stereo 3D mode you might get stuck with using older version of the TriDef 3D software while DDD releases newer versions only for their Retail product. If you look at DDD’s website you may notice that the OEM version of the TriDef 3D for the Samsung 3D monitors for example is already ore than half an year old and meanwhile there have been a few updates for the Retail version released. The OEM version for Viewsonic 3D monitors is a bit newer than the one for Samsung, but still a few months old, the LG and AOC OEM versions are more recent, but still older versions. But that does not mean that you will have to be stuck to these old versions and will have to keep waiting and hoping that DDD to release updates for them, there is a solution to get the latest TriDef 3D version 5.1 installed and working on your system…

There is a simple trick that you need to do in order to get the latest Retail version of TriDef 3D installed and working with your OEM-compatible Samsung, Viewsonic, LG or AOC 3D monitor. First you need to install the OEM version of the TriDef 3D software for your hardware as it also installs a license for the 3D monitor you may have (for example the LG D2342P CINEMA 3D Monitor), then you need to uninstall it and install the latest Retail version of TriDef (currently 5.1) and it is supposed to work without asking you to activate it or get a new license as you already have the display license installed from the OEM version of the software that is originally intended to be used with your monitor. Have in mind that if you don’t have an compatible 3D monitor that works with any of the OEM versions of the TriDef 3D software this simple trick will NOT make the Retail version of the TriDef 3D software work with it. This trick works only on 3D monitors made to work with any of the OEM versions of TriDef.

Upgrading your Acer Aspire 3D laptop with latest TriDef Software

December 15th, 2009 · 25 Comments · Other S3D Tech


If you are an owner of Acer Aspire 3D AS-5738DG laptop you should know that this mobile computer uses DDD’s TriDef software to provide Stereoscopic 3D support for pictures, video and games. The laptop comes preloaded with an OEM version of the TriDef 3D software that is already not very up to date and if you use the built-in update checker you’ll get information that there is no update available for your software. But on the other hand you can download the latest TriDef 3D Software version 4.1.3 (just released today) and install it over the version that came with your laptop. The good news is that the latest software will work on your laptop and you’ll be able to take advantage of the latest features available in TriDef 3D Media Player 6.5.5 and TriDef 3D Ignition 2.4.6.


The only thing that you need to do after updating the TriDef software this way is to select the type of display the Aspire 3D laptop has, because the software will not recognize it automatically and in the OEM version only the needed mode was available. In order to do that you need to run the TriDef 3D Control Panel and select Line Interlaced (1366×768) mode or just Line Interlaced if you are going to use other resolutions than the native one by the laptop. But if you consider doing that you’ll also have to disable the automatic scaling of the image to fill the whole screen when using lower resolutions, otherwise you’ll lose the Stereoscopic 3D usability because of the different size of the stretched pixels.
