Wow! Every time I think I'm about to pull the trigger I find something else to consider! Hahahahaha! Seriously, this has been going on for two years now lol! HMDs, projectors, Eyefinity, 3DVS, various 3D formats, TVs, monitors, fresnels, massive format confusions like HDMI 1.4a... ZOMG! What I've gathered from this thread is that even a huge wraparound S3D projection screen isn't as good as a fresnel setup. So, apparently, a triple stereo fresnel setup would be the absolute best possible setup, which would allow a seamless panoramic view with proper spacing. Cyber's confirmed this works with polarization. Does it work with active Nvidia 3D? Anything it doesn't work with? Are there fresnels for 27" monitors? My only experience with a fresnel was when I was a kid and bought one of those "X in 1" accessory packs for my GBA SP. There was a magnifier that clipped on about two inches over the screen and magnified the image, but there were distracting circular grooves that caused me to stop using it. Was that a fresnel? I assume monitor fresnels are of higher quality.
EDIT: I just found this
thread. It's a 2D triple fresnel setup, but the video is highly detailed.
ZOMG, a 54" fresnel lens
! And a 28" one
. I don't know what that site is, though, and I don't see any information about how to order. Maybe they are past auctions. I wonder if these are monitor quality. The description says there's no distortion. Can heat objects to 2000 degrees Fahrenheit!
said fresnels degrade 3D Vision. What's your experience?
HEY! Try this: watch a video without focusing on the screen. Instead, look through the screen. Imagining what lies beyond the screen (my monitor is front of a window, so I imagine the garage roof and trees behind it) may help. This will produce a doubling effect similar to that seen when 3D glasses are removed, but it will also create a pseudo-3D effect. I watched the new Halo trailers. Now I understand what the researchers experienced when they forgot to enable stereo 3D while using fresnels. I definitely want a triple fresnel setup now.
