DDD TriDef 3D Ignition 3.5.18 Beta 4 Software Now Available

May 16th, 2012 · 9 Comments · General 3D News

DDD has just released a new beta version of their TriDef 3D Ignition software for playing games in stereoscopic 3D mode (it is just the Ignition software, not the whole TriDef 3D package) and it is something that you might want to try out, especially if you play Battlefield 3 in stereo 3D. TriDef 3D Ignition 3.5.18 Beta 4 provides a better stereoscopic 3D profile for Battlefield 3, it also adds profile for the recently released Diablo 3 and fixes some other things.

TriDef 3D Ignition 3.5.18 Beta 4 changelog:

– Added new game profiles for Diablo 3 and other games.
– Improved performance of Power 3D in DX10/11.
– Fixed a few visual bugs in Battlefield 3 and Batman Arkham CIty.
– Fixed a game launch issue in Windows 8.
– Added a search box in the Add Game dialog.

According to a just published stereoscopic 3D review of Battlefield 3 over at MTBS3D, the profile for Battlefield 3 in the latest beta of Ignition makes the stereoscopic 3D experience while playing the game with DDD TeiDef 3D Ignition better looking than using the game’s native stereo 3D rendering on AMD HD3D and Nvidia 3D Vision. With the best part being the lack of “flatness” when you are in a vehicle or in the cutscenes, something that is happening when using the native stereo 3D rendering from the game. And although this might’ve been something made intentionally by the game developers, most stereoscopic 3D gamers usually prefer to have more depth than to have things appearing “flat”. Another thing that apparently works quite well with the game is the Shift One Eye, Dominant Eye feature also recently introduced by DDD. If you try the new beta software with Battlefield 3 feel free to share your feedback below and the same goes if you are already playing Diablo 3 and want to test it with the new profile added in TriDef 3D Ignition 3.5.18 Beta 4. And just a reminder, this is a beta software, so there could be some issues.

    I just went back to 3D gaming after a year, because of a broken PC , and first thing i did was to RSS this site which i remembered i loved. I’m not up to date anymore. Is this TriDef thing worth getting if you have Nvidia 3D?

    I would like to know this as well.
    I have a 3d laptop and 3d monitor (Nvidia)

    Can I use tridef here?

    TriDef 3D is more like an alternative to 3D Vision, it works on both AMD and Nvidia GPUs. You might be able to make it work together with 3D Vision – rendering by DDD and displaying on 3D Vision, but it is not an official feature and may not always work.

    Last time I used TriDef, it had a 14 days trial. You might want to try whether it works.

    OK thanks.
    When you install these drivers do you have to remove the Nvidia drivers? or does tridef just run on its own independent of the Nvidia drivers.

    Good question BF3. How get this to work with nvidia 3d vision. Please help

  • 8 Bloody // May 20, 2012 at 11:04

    You don’t need to remove the 3D Vision drivers, however with BF3 using the TriDef together with 3D Vision does not work as the game has native stereo 3D support. So you can play BF3 with TriDef 3D only on officially compatible with TriDef 3D displays.

    I have no problems with flatness or any other problems (apart from a small lag when playing in 3D) with Nvidia 3D Vision. Anyone with a grudge against Nvidia should try Creative’s drivers FFS. Nvidia + EA + Dice is a very very nice combination.
