StereoCamera introduction


Studio MAX ® Autodesk and Autodesk Maya ® have mature 3D rendering capabilities. An intuitive stereoscopic camera model is provided for this plug-in. Users can control the stereoscopic effect of their own scenes and provide a fast workflow for users. The integrated 3D real-time real-time preview can quickly adjust the stereoscopic effect, so no need to reappear.

1. Create or open scenes. Good maps and scenes will make the StereoCamera plug-in easier to use.

2. Create StereoCamera, camera controls
