I recently came across some Matlab code to output a 3D graph as a stereoscopic left/right .JPS file, viewable e.g. with 3D Media Viewer, Stereoscopic Player or using any 3D television or beamer: http://www.timzaman.com/2012/03/3d-matlab-save-stereo-3d-image/
I was on the lookout for a similar function that would export any Mathematica Graphics3D object or 3D plot to .JPS (which is just a .JPG with the image for the left & right eye shown side by side but with a different extension, as in https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:JPS-sample.jpg).
Mathematica code to produce the two stereoscopic images for the left & right eye is given here, here and here, so the problem is only how to combine and export these as a .JPS file? The analogous export to3D PNG, .PNS would be cool too.
Anybody any thoughts?
On the driver front, I suppose that Mathematica is not planning to support 3D enabled HDMI output directly when viewing a notebook, right? And is direct support for .PNS, .JPS and maybe .MPO planned in the next upgrade?
The program GraphicConverter for Macintosh can combine separate frames into a 3D still or video. I have never tried, though.
Thx for this - looking for a Mathematica only solution though! Should just be a question to Rasterize the two images, pasting the two images next to each other in one image, saving it as a .JPEG and then renaming the extension to .JPS (or something like that) - the first and last step I know how to do, but not pasting the two images next to each other.
