I am trying to render a Blender image for Google Cardboard.

I followed the instructions in rendering 3D video/image for google cardboard with the default scene, but it gave me the image for coloured glasses, which I gather is called anaglyphic. I am using Blender 2.77a.

Does anyone know what I should do to fix my render?

  • $\begingroup$ @Denis, yes, using side-by-side. I've checked again, and I'm still getting anaglyphic. $\endgroup$ – Martin Ellison Sep 19 '16 at 6:01
  • $\begingroup$ @Denis Also, as the answer in blender.stackexchange.com/questions/52139/… points out, saving the image file creates two files, "_L" and "_R", with one image each. $\endgroup$ – Martin Ellison Sep 19 '16 at 6:15

OK, The answer seems to be:

There is another set of options on the 'save as' dialog, and you need to set the 3D option and the side-by-side option there too.

See https://www.blender.org/manual/render/workflows/multiview/usage.html for a lot more detail on this.
