I managed to change my output to stereoscopic (and fisheye) with this code:

bpy.context.scene.camera.data.type = 'PANO'
bpy.context.scene.camera.data.cycles.panorama_type = 'FISHEYE_EQUISOLID'
bpy.context.scene.camera.data.stereo.convergence_mode = 'PARALLEL'
bpy.context.scene.render.use_multiview = True
bpy.context.scene.render.image_settings.views_format = 'STEREO_3D'

But I can't find a way to set the output to SIDEBYSIDE instead of single left and right images.

What am I missing?

I want to render the output in the background, but basicly need to do what these settings in the GUI do:

Side By Side rendering settings

This setting gives me a single image with both L and R output side by side

That can be set with bpy.context.scene.render.image_settings.stereo_3d_format.display_mode = 'SIDEBYSIDE' = 'SIDEBYSIDE'.

You can set other properties there too, like ...stereo_3d_format.use_sidebyside_crosseyed.

For more options, see the Stereo3dDisplay API documentation.

    $\begingroup$ views_format should be set on bpy.context.scene.render.image_settings.views_format. $\endgroup$
