2 - Mode

You can select from three different operating modes for Minoru

3D – The viewer of the 3D video will need to use the 3D glasses to see the 3D effect

Picture in Picture (PiP) – This mode is useful if you want to show some close up detail of

an item while maintaining the view of your face. Hold the item up to Minoru’s left eye and
the detailed image will appear in the large PiP window.

2D – You can use this mode if the viewer doesn’t have any 3D glasses.

Side by Side – For the real 3D enthusiast! Select from Left/Right (LR) or Right/Left (RL).

You can use these modes to record ‘Side by Side’ pictures. The recorded video can then be
played back using a stereoscopic player, see ‘Recommended software to get the most
from Minoru’, page 20.
