My organisation is moving to Windows 10 and nvidia have discontinued support for quad buffered stereo. What are people using instead to run the Stereoanalyst extension for ArcGIS?
Are there any AMD cards that work? Anyone using stereomirror systems like the Planar monitors or 'flashy screen" jobs that use the 3D Vision Pro glasses?
Appreciate any help! :-)

I'm having a lot of difficulty trying to get stereo working under Win10 on our systems here. The two test machines are set up exactly as they were under Win7 but just don't display 3D. One machine is a stereomirror (True3Di) and the other a "flashy screen" unit, a BenQ 2720-Z. After installing a second video card and the old 3dVision drivers I managed to get the correct options to show under the stereo settings on the BenQ system and the glasses were syncing with the emitter but the screen wasn't flashing despite the stereo light on the monitor being on. Runningthe stereo wizard crashed the computer and has necessitated a rebuild.
If anyone can tell me the settings and cards they use to have 3D operational in Win10 I'd be very grateful!

We have two stereomirror workstations upgraded to Win 10.
The other workstation has a Planar display and Nvidia Quadro P2000 and a mirror flip card
and the other has a Pluraview display and AMD Radeon pro wx 7100 card.
The ArcGis Desktop 10.4. and Stereoanalyst run well in them.
Edit: The old Nvidia Quadro FX 3800 card didn't work in Win10.

why for ERDAS IMAGINE 2020 there are only these graphic cards in the system requirements=?
NVIDIA® Quadro® K5200, K5000, K4200, K4000, K2200, K600, K420 6
for ERDAS IMAGINE 2018 Update 2 we had:
NVIDIA® Quadro® P6000, P5000, P4000, P2000
NVIDIA® Quadro® M6000, M5000, M4000, M2000
NVIDIA® Quadro® K5200, K5000, K4200, K4000, K2200

That's extremely odd. The K series, as I understand it, came before the M and P series cards. My guess is it's an error. We've successfully tested M and P series cards on Win 10 systems so I'd personally be confident that these series would still work.
I understand that Nvidia's drivers hand part of the work over to the Win 10 operating system to deliverthe 3D output which is another complication.
With Nvidia exiting the 3D arena we may be struggling to maintain these workstatins over time. I'm not really sure of the demarcation between the Geforce gaming and Quadro Professional 3D spheres so far as what if anything Nvidia will support into the future so I suggest we all keep on their back to try and make sure we can still use 3D for our professional applications!
BTW, I came across this link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units which has heaps of info on all the cards.
Anyway, give the M and P series cards a go.

Thanks for cathcing the error and pointing it out.
All the Quadro K, M and P series are supported for Stereo visualization in ERDAS IMAGINE 2020. We will update the Release guide in the next update.
You will need to be make sure that the driver is not newer than R418. Nvidia has dropped 3D vision support for drivers released after R418 U4 (425.31) which is released on April 11 2019.
Best regards, Sam
