How to Use Parallax and Levels Adjustments

Hi, How do you optimize the 3D image by using the Parallax and Levels adjustments?

You can adjust parallax of stereo image in horizontal and vertical axis by clicking horizontal and vertical buttons in Parallax window.
You can rotate stereo image by clicking buttons in Level window.

Sorry, I know how to make the changes with the aforementioned buttons. What I meant to ask is what is the criteria for optimizing the 3D image? What should I strive to do with the buttons? I don't have my 3D glasses yet to see the affects of the changes with the Parallax and Level buttons.

1. You need to load stereo image, for example MPO file.

2. When you switch to Level view, by clicking buttons you rotate image left or right to desired angle.

3. When you switch to Parallax view, by clicking buttons you set horizontal/vertical parallax. Quickly changing left/right images help you estimate parallax zero point, parallax vertical synchronization and parallax strength over whole image.
If you have anaglyph glasses, you can set image parallax and image level right in Anaglyph view by using hotkeys.

All these effects which you get with these settings are quite self-explanatory.
When you set image level, you see how image is rotating. It's that simple.
When you set parallax, you see where parallax is zero and where it is maximal. Parallax is zero where left and right images coincide with each other. By setting parallax zero point you set where image has zero depth. Rest of the image goes behind or before this zero-depth point.

Got it now. This is what I didn't know: "By setting parallax zero point you set where image has zero depth. Rest of the image goes behind or before this zero-depth point."

Thanks much for your help.
