The use of â€śadvancedâ€ť 3D visualizations has become standard in many scientific; commercial and entertainment applications. Much of the term â€śadvancedâ€ť is related to the techniques that have emerged during the years to exploit humanâ€™s capability of perceiving depth from binocular vision. While technical solutions are readily available to recreate high-quality stereo-graphic images on planar displays; there are perceptual and physiological limits to our sensation of true spatial images. In addition; there are other efficient mechanisms that help the observer to extract the 3D layout of a perceived scene. In this tutorial I will give an introduction into stereo-graphic display techniques and I will discuss perceptual limits; common pitfalls and trade-offs in generating stereographic images. In the presentation I will give hints and tips on how to generate and display 3D images.
