    If Google earth would only implement the right fullscreen mode (one compatible with the nVidia Stereo Drivers) this would be trivial to do in real time. Argh!

    NASA has an excellent open source world viewer World Wind ( http://worldwind.arc.nasa.gov/ ) which improves upon Google in some regards including an anaglyphic plug in:

    I did this a while ago but not as an anaglyph, I used the crosseyed method. Check them out on my Flickr page.

    Hi, I have tried this with own-made animations and also google earth exports, just the method is different, i used mirror for placing the two eye wievs into the same place, it is easier to try at home and the result is amazing. Check my discussion, jpeg and avi and samples at http://www.instructables.com/id/EDO2RQCF6PC9K6B/

    Just downloaded World Wind mentioned here by monopole, and gonna try it. It would be the nicest to use an original, profi openGL engine on 2 head videocard, with adjustable eyeball distance and focus.
