probably stupid ;) question: how can I make stereographic video? Do I have to have two lenses camera?

Wow, this is great stuff. Where do I get glasses to watch 3D videos other than in a cinema?

Also, Assassins Creed is a brilliant game! I can't wait for Assassins Creed II

They could more easily do this with HTML 5's open web video!

[put at-character here]noname: yes. Or simply two cameras you start at exactly the same time.

This is cool, but laggs horribly on Linux :(

I use Ubuntu, basic configuration, it works great.
And it's already translated in French.

[put at-character here]Cellphish, could you specificy what exactly didn't work, you hopefully did realize you can choose the glass colours in the select menu under the video.

I'm sorry but this is as useless as it can get... I don't see why they would put developer time in something like this...

Yv, for what it's worth, the developer behind this said it was his 20% time...

A motorized carriage that you have to continuously repair and fill with gasoline? That's about as useless as it gets. Horses work just fine.

Why would anyone complain about that! I thought it was great!!

Hey Guys,

I know of an Israeli Company named "Taatua" that has been developing such a 3D solution for real time systems.
I have seen a few samples and the result is surprisingly really good.
Has anyone else heard of them?? you can check their website at, not much there but contact info.
