Can I use the Zalman Trimon monitor for 3D display in Maestro? What requirements if any are there to display in stereo with this monitor?

We have tested this monitor with Maestro both on Windows and on Linux. It works as expected on either platform; the only requirement is to match the desktop resolution to the monitor's native resolution, and the graphics card must support stencil buffering (which most modern graphics cards do). The quality is not as high as quad-buffered stereo because of the interlacing and, in particular, text can be difficult to read.

To use interlaced stereo, go to View → 3D Options and for Method, choose "Interlaced", and select "Display in stereo".

We have also received reports that on some systems 3D stereo does not work if the Zalman monitor is used with an analog connection (blue VGA port), but works correctly with a digital connection (white DVI port). We have tried both on our system and found no difference, but it's worth checking.
