Revelator Set Up and Testing
version of the 3D Revelator glasses we tested installed easily and
the drivers were straight forward. Here is a screen shot of the
driver panel which shows you some of the features.

Elsa gives you
the ability to set the glasses up with different configurations
depending on the game you are playing. As you can see from the above
shot, they also have included a bunch of presets for various games.
You can also set up your own presets with the drivers. This way you
can choose the level of "stereo width" that is right for
you. This "stereo width" is the number of pixels that a
rendered scene is offset from the left to right shutter on the
glasses. This determines the depth that you perceive when looking at
your monitor through the 3D Revelators.
separate the two offset images on your screen by blocking one of the
stereo images out so that from one eye's perspective only one image
is seen and the other eye sees only the other offset image. Each
lens shuts on and off at a high speed such that your eyes don't
perceive the shutter much if at all, depending on your monitor
refresh rate, which needs to be very high. You should plan to have a
monitor that can support at least 100Hz. at the resolution you want
to work with. Preferably, 120-140 Hz. is optimal.
end result is a level of 3D perception and immersion much like the
3D movies you have seen in movie theaters with the green and red
glasses. However, the effect with the 3D Revelator glasses and your
monitor is MUCH more impressive.
work only with DirectX driven games. The list of DirectX supported
games is now huge and so there is plenty to choose from and some day
all games are sure to have DirectX support.
We are totally
impressed with the performance of the 3D Revelators. The effect
these glasses have when they are dialed in correctly, is absolutely
fantastic. They are a lot of fun to play with and the effect really
adds to the experience.
