I'm running an htpc base don the AMD Zacate platform, which gives me 1.6ghz dual core cpu with a decent AMD APU capable of happily decoding half-sbs 1080p x264 streams.
I've done my research and as my tv is an LG 60hz 42inch LCD set, I can't run shutters.
As a result I got one of these:http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2D-3D-Video-Coverter-TV-Game-Image-Converter-Blue-Ray-DVD-PS3-Xbox-360-UK-/120816815259?pt=UK_Computing_CablesConnectors_RL&hash=item1c213e4c9b#ht_4360wt_949
... which takes in the sbs and outputs a single amber/blue anaglyph.
The glasses provides are the very dark, Colorcode style glasses.
Trying these with pre-encoded Colorcode content, the 3d effect is surprisingly good - a tiny amount of ghosting but lots of depth - very happy.
The box linked above does do a very good job - it happily and effortlessly transforms the sbs into amber/blue. However, I noticed a fair amount of ghosting.
Closing one eye, I'm seeing some of the amber come through the blue lense, and the same the other way - the blue is definitely creeping through the amber lense. There seems to be no way in SBS mode of altering the convergence of the two images.
As such my question is this - what is the best way to minimise the ghosting?
I have some glasses on order from Amazon that may or may not have better filters, but this remains to be seen.
Can anyone suggest really good anaglyph glasses for this purpose? I can't help feeling the converter box is putting out more yellow than amber, or if altering colour settings on the tv/reducing sharpness, etc would help at all?
Also if there are suggestions for an improved way to do this on a 60hz set then please let me know. A cheap gpu is not out of the question but would be required to be ow profile.
Please also note this is not used for gaming at present, but for movies.
As an addendum, the APU is DirectX 11 compatible - I did ty stereoscopic player but it doesn't seem to graphically accelerate the video so it is very very jerky. Bino3D doesn't accelerate at all so that is no real use as the CPUs aren't up to the task.
I hope this is enough information - I am a newbie here so please let me know if further details are required. Also, I am based in the UK so getting lots of glasses is a bit trickier.
