Yamakasi Catleap and 3D
 
Ok i have had a Catleap for almost a year now i just recently upgraded the PCB with a Overlord 120hz PCB ( all i can say is wow, the best 260 bux i have ever spent on random computer parts lol). Anyways anyone know if i could get this thing to display 3D. I know ill have to buy some NVidia cards and some glasses, just wondering if the only rules to using 3D is 120hz capable monitor and maybe hardware capable of pumping out 120fps?

No. A display needs to be certified for 3D Vision to support NVIDIA's glasses. This is due to polarization angles, screen sync and a number of other items.

Figured as much, you just saved me 1200+ dollars on some gtx 780s! Thanks!

Actually, there's been hacks to force nVidia 3D Vision to work on displays not designed for 3D Vision. With hacks, I've seen 3D Vision successfully working on Samsung S27A950D computer monitors -- that's an AMD HD3D monitor! It needs registry tweaks and the "CRT mode".

Unfortunately, it is not possible.
The Catleap bleeds refresh together too much to allow 3D to be really possible.
You need clean individual refreshes, for shutter glasses to work on.

As part of BlurBusters.com blogging, I've done some high speed camera tests.
(I have a 1000fps camera)

High Speed Video of 2007 LCD - refreshes blend into each other too much. 3D not possible.
High Speed Video of 2012 LCD - refreshes are very clean. 3D possible.

The polarization on all 2012 / 2013 Samsung 120Hz sets is identical. The same goes for ASUS. These off-brand monitors however typically use different polarization filters. Even Acer, Phillips and BenQ change up their filters all too often.

As a true test, put on a pair of polarized sunglasses (3D Vision glasses are polarized as well) and look at a lineup of monitors in Future Shop or Best buy. It is truly amazing to see how different filters can affect viewing.

Thanks for the in depth responses! I did not think it was possible but I was willing to give it a shot. I really love the eye candy 1440p delivers, I just can not go back to 1080p!
