In the context of stereo viewing, you might want to read my previous post 
on the chimera-users list at 
The instructions are the same, but the motivation is different.

Note that the effect of increasing the view angle is not the same as a 
fish-eye lens on a camera, but is rather a wide-angle view, like sitting
real close the screen at a movie theatre.  To get a real fish-eye view, 
I'd recommend exporting the chimere scene and using POV-Ray or a Renderman 
renderer and substitute a fish-eye lens camera for the one in the file.
