[Chimera-users] Does Chimera support stereo with a Nvidia Quadro M4000 graphics card?

Thanks much for help, Greg,

We now have it working on Linux, but the stereo display in win10 is still not as good as that on linux! and we will play the configuations on win10. Thanks.

Best regards,

Yes, Chimera supports stereo on the NVidia Quadro M4000 graphics care.  A simple test to see if you have configured your system correctly is to run the stereotest program from https://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/Overview/stereotest.html.  In your case, I expect that it would show that stereo isn't working.
To fix it depends on which OS you're using:
On Linux, you'll need to configure the X11 display server to show stereo.  See the NVidia release notes in /usr/share/doc/nvidia-x11-drv-*/.  In the appendix on X Config Options, it says how to set the Stereo option.  Pick the Stereo option that matches the 3D stereo display setup that you are using -- you most likely have a 3D TV that came with stereo glasses, or a 120hz+ gaming monitor with NVidia 3D Vision support and associated glasses, those would be options 12 or 10, respectively.  If you are using the 3D Vision emitter, I'd recommend connecting the 3-pin DIN cable from the M4000's daughter card.
On WIndows, you need to go to the NVidia control panel, and choose "Manage 3D settings", not the Stereoscopic settings.  There you need to set "Stereo - Enable" to on, and "Stereo - Display mode" to match your 3D stereo display setup.  Again, I'd recommend using the 3-pin DIN cable with the NVidia 3D Vision emitter if you are using that.
    Hope this helps,
