    I have a mid-2012 rMBP 15" and have been trying to output movies to my 3D Samsung HDTV and an Optoma HD33 3D Projector. Every time I try using VLC or Quicktime it just plays back the two pictures side by side. Is there support for 3D output that will also work with the RF emitter for the glasses? :confused:

    Is this under windows or Mac? Curious about this too as I'm about to get a 3d tv and would to know if the retina MacBook Pro 15 would be able to utilize it.

    Since the graphic card could possibly display 3d as one of the computers can, by installing nvidia drivers and their 3d drivers, could the MacBook Pro play 3d? This would be under windows. Possibly a program that could do all the heavy work?

    That'd depend on whether the card for that one computer is different or if only the drivers are...

    it is 3D capable.

    From your own link:

    Okay I doubt games (playing battlefield 3 @ 3D doesn't seem possibly unless the graphics were lowered by a lot) but playing 3D videos seems like a go show.
