Anaglyph stereo refers to the use of colors to separate the left and
right eye views from each other. The user must wear glasses with
colored lenses, such as the red-blue glasses one finds at some sci-fi
and horror movie showings. The computer hardware requirements for
Anaglyph stereo are currently the same as for CrystalEyes stereo
except that LCD shutter glasses and emitters are not required.
The red-blue glasses take the place of the LCD shutter glasses used
for the CrystalEyes stereo modes. Anaglyph stereo has one major
disadvantage when compared with CrystalEyes stereo, which is that
its color rendition is obviously severely constrained. This is just
a fact of life with Anaglyph stereo, and it is up to the user to use
color schemes for their molecules that still look visually pleasing
when displayed in Anaglyph stereo mode.
