Anaglyph Stereo

Anaglyph stereo refers to the use of colors to separate the left and right eye views from each other. The user must wear glasses with colored lenses, such as the red-blue glasses one finds at some sci-fi and horror movie showings. Anaglyph stereo has one major disadvantage when compared with quad-buffered stereo, which is that its color rendition is severely constrained. This is an unavoidable limitation of anaglyph stereo, and it is up to the user to use color schemes for their molecules that still look visually pleasing in this mode. This mode is supported by all GPUs.
