Autodesk, Inc.
Create more engaging entertainment content and design visualizations with the Stereo Camera feature set.

General Usage Instructions

To create a stereo camera rig:

1. Create or open a scene. This isn't necessary, but using Stereo Camera is easier when the scene has the geometry and texturing.

2. Create the stereo camera rig.

3. Click a viewport's Point-Of-View (POV) viewport label menu, and choose Stereo Cameras StereoCameraRig001 (or a name you assigned the rig). If you based your stereo rig on an existing camera, the scene is already framed. If you created a free-standing stereo rig, use viewports to move the stereo rig and adjust it to frame the scene.

4. Use options on the Stereo Camera Viewport menu to display stereo data in the stereo viewport.

To render a stereo scene or a stereo animation:

1. Select the stereo rig.

2. Open the stereo rig assembly.

3. Choose Group menu Assembly Open. (If you use the Enhanced menus, these choices are Edit menu>Group>Open and Edit menu>Group>Close.)
