oder eigentlich kann ich den Text ja auch gleich hier anhängen:
sorry, if this maybe offtopic but:
I’ve tried in many forums now and read many articles on the web.
But none dealed with creating a driver add-on for ati cards to get
stereoscopic viewing done in anaglyph mode.
So here’s what I want to do (please compare to elas 3d Revelator driver
or nvidia 3d stereo driver):
I want to programme a driver or programme which enables you to
- switch to anaglyph mode in any stereo-ready enabled application
- switch to anaglyph mode in any game using direct3d/directx or opengl
- provide different stereo separation
- provide a gamma control (stereo mode will be darker normally I
- providing a control panel to do the setup for all.
- different configuration for different games
- laser sight
I have still no idea where to start.
So here are my questions:
Do I have to write a driver to catch all directx/opengl data and
generate a pic for the left eye a pic for the right eye and merge it in
anyglyph (red/cyan or any other color combinations?!) mode?
If so, how may I catch the data? Would I have to write a directx and an
opengl-wrapper as a dll or does it have to be a programme providing a
systemwide hook based in a dll?
How could I provide a shortcut to toggle features while playing the
game? System-wide hook for shortcut needed?
Is it possible at all?
Will I need the Microsoft DDK to use it?
Generating the cpl file for system properties: can it be done in C#? I
read some articles about saying it would only be possible in C++ or C.
Would you like me to do it? No matter if, I want to do this and to
learn of it, if it is possible…
What programming will I have to do?
I guess so far I have to do the following:
- writing a control panel applet (cpl file) to be able to set
- write a driver catching the data of opengl or directx from any game
or any application started using one of those technologies (maybe
vxd?), don’t still know about it…
- modifying the data for anaglyph mode
- compose the data for anaglyph mode as set in properties of the
- send it on as intended!?
would this be correct?
could someone advise me how to really start?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
P.S.: And sorry for my very bad English. I am from Germany.
