Top View

Top View (during cross-eye stereo use)
Top View

In the Side View, setting View to top shows the relationship between the viewer and the Chimera scene from the top. This Top View allows perspective and stereo parameters to be adjusted interactively. These and additional related parameters can be changed numerically in the Camera tool.

The eye separation and distance to screen govern the parallax between the left- and right-eye views. The horizontal field of view and distance to screen are interdependent; changing one changes the other, in the opposite direction (details...).

The scale, camera mode, and global clipping planes can be adjusted just as in the standard Side View.
