The Lytro software ecosystem supports various 3D options for you to explore and share with your friends and family.

What you'll need to view your pictures in 3D: 

We support 2 different kinds of 3D output:  Anaglyph, aka Red/Cyan, and Side-by-Side.

  • Anaglyph - To view Anaglyph output, all you need are a pair of Red/Cyan glasses.  These can be had for cheap and are widely available on the internets, just search for "red cyan 3d glasses". 
  • Side-by-Side - To view Side-by-Side output, you're going to need a 3D TV and the glasses that came with it.  We don't officially support 3D computer displays, but that doesn't mean it won't work for you; lack of real industry standards means that we just can't guarantee it.  
    • Got a 3D TV?  Enter into 3D mode (your remote probably has a '3D' button) and select Side-by-Side viewing from the menu system.  Put on your TV's 3D glasses and enjoy.
