Has anyone interfaced the HDMI port on their computer to a 3D HDTV?

Posted 11 years ago
Several of the programs I have written output stereo pairs, side by side, on my laptop.  With aged eye muscles and some training these images fuse nicely into 3D.  I think those left (0 degrees) and right (6 degree tilt) panels could be placed in an animated gif and played as a 3D movie.  However, for an audience, it would be better to be on a large monitor and use interlaced frames with polarized goggles.

Do we have any Mathematica-based techniques for packaging up interlaced frames, going out the computer's HDMI port, and going into a HDMI port on a 3D monitor?

I am not expecting to generate the images in real time.  This involves a fly-by of some of my virtual sculpture ( with variations in r, theta, and phi - so there will be significant time spent calculating each frame.

No, I haven't seen any functionality made for Mathematica and 3D monitors. I'm not familiar with the format you'd need to create either. It sounds like a complicated project.

Most examples of 3D visualization have been ones using Anaglyphs:

Yes, anaglyphs might be the best way to go right now if your object's color isn't too important.  That would be true of my sculpture.  The attached file uses cyan-red glasses (I think).
