Hi Jon:

I learnt that from Java3D 1.2, the stereo viewing function has been added. I
am thus wondering whether it is possible to control (or change) the images
sent to left and right eyes separately? Thank you!

If your goal is stereo viewing then you merely need to position the left and
right virtual eyes correctly in the scene, with both eyes looking at the same
scene. If you want each eye to see the same scene differently, as you
described in your earlier post, then you will have to wait for the new view
specific grouping nodes.

hope this helps

Hi Jon:

What I want is just render two images to exactly same position of the screen,
but one to left eye and the other to the right eye. With the glasses, each
eye can just view its allocated image. If it is possible for the current
version, can you just simply tell me the names of the functions which can do
this? Thank you!

For stereo viewing, don't you want each eye to see the same world but from
slightly different eye positions? Why won't this work for your situation?

In any case, there is no simple way to do what you want. The only thing that
comes to mind is to setup "parallel" worlds with an eyeball in each one. The
objects in the two worlds are linked so that when you do something to an
object in one world it also affects the corresponding object in the other
world.
