Which stereoscopic 3D solution do you primarily use?: Head Mounted Display (HMD)

Got Tridef. Tridef DX only. Need OpenGL. Me sad. :(

Hi there.

I am sad because I got the Leap Motion and them apps in Airspace use OpenGL (mostly?).
So I got this nice setup and find myself unable to use stereo3d 'cause Tridef doesn't do OpenGL.

What in the name of <insert favorite entity here> should I do? :(

Wrapper?

720p LED passive 3DTV,720p DLP Link w/135" motorized,Oculus DK1,
HTC EVO 3D, Leap Motion, Tridef AMD Retail

There are barely many OpenGL games (at least on Windows), so that's probably why there hasn't been much 3D driver development for it.

Sometimes for certain (usually old) games you can use OpenGL->DirectX wrappers (like GLDirect), but this is not always an option.

I recall Fredz was working on a GL driver for Linux, but I'm not sure if he ever finished it or if he's still working on it.

The first Leap agent i chatted with wrote that stereo 3d cannot be done.
Then another agent wrote that yes the bulk are based on Unity.
I had the bad luck of trying out FreeForm and Visualizer which are OpenGL.
I think things will work out mostly. Mostly. (Aliens :) )

Thanks cybereality mod.
