Yes. However, you need to use NVIDIA's 3D Vision system for this. If you have an NVIDIA card and your setup is compatible with NVIDIA 3D Vision it works.

I am using a single projection system to achieve the stero projection in conjunction with nvidia 3d vision. With that system it is working well. But the start of Lumion in fullscreenmode is quite difficult after my opinion and that is needed for 3d vision to work. You have to press CTRL while starting Lumion so that Lumion starts in fullscreenmode

- Remko, does that mean you successfully tested Lumion with 3D Vision on 2 projector system? I would need to know this for sure before I buy the program (I'm using Demo version for now.)

- on my single projection active system with 3D Vision, I too get Lumion to work in stereo. but there are multiple problems with this stereo view (as I explained in this post). did you already fix these issues in the full version of the program?
in this current form it is pretty unusuable.

- just as mischa, I also have difficulties starting Lumion with Ctrl in order to achieve fullscreen mode. it almost always starts in normal mode. is there a trick how to start it?

here you will find a lot of infos:

http://3dvision-blog.com/

I don't know if 3d Vision support dual output L+R separated for passive systems, probably you need a Quadro or the iz3D drivers.

 

mtbs if my favourite link for stereoscopic stuff. Look this article:

gabrielefx, thanks for the info. I too follow these sites (don't have time to read them all though :(, it is very useful. so is the mtbs article, I appreciate it,,, but in this setup they use ATI card. I still hope Remko will confirm that Lumion is definitely working on dual projection on Nvidia card : )

I do have Quadro on my 3D workstation, and I also hope dual output will work on my 3D notebook with GeForce. I can post the results once I test it all, still it would be nice to know if anybody made it work with this configuration before I invest in polarized system.

PS - gabrielefx, I see you're licensed Lumion user -- can you please tell me if the full version still has the stereo issues, as you described here? I'm having the same problems, and couldn't find the concrete answer in the forum.

We did fix some bugs in stereo rendering. The demo version should also allow you to test this. The official 1st update of v1.0 will be out soon so you can test it. From what I have read the results vary from system to system. We used a Geforce 480GTX top get out the initial bugs and now we will have to dive into specific setups to see where the problem is.

It seems the bug that are there now are more related to the clouds not being rendered properly but the big bugs are solved. Try update 1 when it is out and let me know if it works for you.

Hi, CTRL F11 works great for me, much easier than to start Lumion by holding CTRL while clicking onthe Lumion Icon. now. But is there still no possibility to get out of the fullscreen mode? Is the only solution to kill the process with the task manager? If so that has to be changed.

No just press F11 again probably to go back to window mode.
