Looks interesting.  For chimera, you would have to give up the outline
selection mode due to conflicting uses of the OpenGL stencil buffer.
You will also have to give up shadows when we implement them.  I assume
stereo is more important, right?

It requires row interleaved stereo support, which I currently only have available with VMD.  It works great and I think your group and other users would love it.  The VRex filter currently is $400 and works with any display card; they currently only support a 15" 1024x768 LCD monitor. Carl Tung from Vrex expects prices will drop; I've got a prototype. It is literally just a glass screen that fits over the LCD screen - no wires or interface of any kind.  Would you be willing to add this type of stereo to Chimera? See http://www.vrex.com/developer for details.
