Saurus do you happen to know ... it doesn't look like stereoscopy is included in the trial version? That's the very thing I want to "try before I buy"!

Sure it is...
The trial version is only limited by the resolution and the watermarks...
All other functions are exactly the same as the licensed version...

Is it because you can't find it in the panels...?
Take a look at the Display settings... ;)

First you need to check the checkbox in the camera settings before rendering. Than you can use the drop down menu in the Display settings.

Follow up question ... it works with 3D glasses but I can't get it to come out in color. Please tell me color is an option?

Although I'm no expert when it comes to stereoscopic, you can only get the color output when/if you select the Left/Right option...
If you select the Anagylph option, it will be the "Red/Blue" output mix...
How would you get a "mixed" output in colors?
What are you using to see the stereoscopic effect?
What experience do you have in this area?
Can you show an example of what it is you're looking after? (must be possible to Google)

Hi Frederik, thanks for your reply. I'm using red/cyan 3D glasses. I was hoping to view a full-color version of my scenes, but that may not be possible with red/cyan glasses. These glasses seem to "sap" the color out of images. But maybe I don't understand the point of Thea's stereoscopic output option? For example, what's the point of a "left/right" option if you can't "meld" them together to see an image in full 3D? Without that "melding", all you have are two images with a slightly different camera angle but no way to merge them together into a 3D image. I've attached one sample image which, although it isn't perfect, shows "some" color in 3D when you use red/cyan glasses.

Thanks again for the feedback. Maybe we can pull in one of the programmers to explain this better? As an overall opinion, Thea is INCREDIBLE!!!
