  None of the easy-to-use free movie encoders are capable of generating
stereoscopic movies. To generate a stereoscopic movie using the built-in
VMD tools, you would essentially render two complete sets of frames,
and then feed them into a stereoscopic-capable movie encoder. You could
probably get VMD to generate a stereo movie for "bino" using one of the
over/under or side-by-side stereo modes in combination with the "snapshot"
renderer, but you wouldn't be able to play the movie except in a
similar 3-D aware viewer like "bino":
