The Zalman defeats these with a very smart trick. We got out first one, and it's really very good, albeit not perfect in some details. Pymol and Coot worked just like that with it.

Hi Ajit;

One of our CRT monitors broke recently, and in the context of
bemoaning the loss to a friend I was told that LCD monitors will not
work for stereo viewing. I understood the reason to be related to the
difference in refresh rates (?), with LCD's not being fast enough so
that the viewer is left seeing ghosts. The effect, which I have not
seen first hand, was described to me as capable of making most hapless
stereo viewers very ill, very fast. I would encourage you to plumb the
depths of knowledge on this subject further, but that is my simple

Best wishes~

Hello everyone,
   Sorry for a non-CCP4 related question again. Can anyone let me
know how to make stereo work on linux with Zalman monitor with Coot?
Is it as simple as what we do with CRT monitors? Or do we need
something else? We presently use CRT monitors on a Quadro FX 4600
graphics card. I would like to move to LCDs.

Thanks for all inputs

Ajit B.
