- FAQ

Thank you for visiting the FAQ Section. We are working hard to provide you with the most comprehensive "Questions & Answers" section about 3D on the internet.

Since this is no job to accomplish within a few days, please bear with us, as we are adding new topics. Should you miss anything, or spot an error, please contact us.

We also recommend that you have a look at our Online Library, which provides some valuable papers and books about Stereoscopic Imaging.

Some information has been taken from the "3D Frequently asked Questions", originally compiled from the Photo-3D mailing list by Joel Alpers.
