    For beginners, it can help to use a pencil or a screwdriver instead of your

    If you look at the images, you should "see two" pointers, positioned at
    corresponding parts of the images - then look at the pointer but focus on
    the "new middle image"
    Remove the pointer quickly so your eyes don't follow it.
    Philip is correct about the time of training usually required. But consider
    that with un-crossed images virtually nobody can view images more than 6 cm
    apart, ie very small images.
    For large images, untrained viewers can start watching at a longer distance.

    Cross Eyed 3D viewing.
    I made this in
    ISS 3D Cross Eyed
    It can be difficult for some peopleto learn but it's NOT impossible. It
    just takes a few minutes of practice. Then you can do it almost every time.
    You'll need to SLIGHTLY cross your eyes so that the 2 videos overlap.
    You'll know you've got it when you see 3 images. The 2 on the outsides will
    be kind of ghostly and the middle one will be in 3D (if you can see it
    without any blur).If you're seeing 4 images then you're crossing your eyes
    WAY too much. Trust me, you won't really hurt or look half dumb if you do
    it right. Essentially, the
    right eye will be looking at the left image and the left eye looking at the
    right image. Again, it can be difficult to do if you haven't had practice
    but you'll be amazed at what you'll see once you can! Try sitting away from
    the screen a bit and holding your thumb about half way between your eyes
    and the screen. You'll notice that while you're focused on your thumb, both
    of the videos will be overlapped. If the images aren't overlapping then
    just adjust yourself so that they are. Once you've got them lined up,
    remove your finger and
    hold your eyes in that position. When you get real good at it. Then put
    both of your hands together to make a circle to look threw. This is to look
    at the center image only viewing. This is really "COOL" when you can do
    GOOD LUCK....
