Adjusting 3D Images
The 3D Screen allows you to view 3D images. Use the 3D depth slider to adjust the 3D eects to a
comfortable level.
The 3D eects generated by the Nintendo 3DS
are created using the binocular disparity of the
eyes (the ability to interpret 3D images due to
the dierence in position of the left and right
eye). By manipulating the 3D Screen so that
the left eye sees only the left image and the
right eye only sees the right image, vivid and
convincing 3D eects can be produced.
Left eye image 3D image Right eye image
Tilting the screen or viewing it from an angle interferes with the 3D eect, and can
cause the screen to appear dark or cause you to see a double image.
Follow the steps below to ensure that 3D images appear properly.
Look directly into the 3D Screen.
Hold the 3D Screen 25 – 35 cm away from your eyes. Adjust
the distance until you can see the 3D images easily.
Use the 3D depth slider next to the 3D Screen to increase or decrease the 3D eect. If placing the 3D depth slider at the top (strongest 3D eect)
makes the 3D images dicult to see, move it downwards little by little until you reach a point where the 3D images are distinct and easy to see.
As you become more accustomed to the 3D feature, you may nd that raising the 3D depth slider results in better eects.
This lights up when the 3D Screen can display
3D content.
3D Strength
Move the 3D depth slider to the lowest point to display images in 2D.
Adjusting the 3D depth slider while the 3D LED is o will not result in 3D images being displayed.
Certain types of content, including 3D videos and photos, do not allow adjustments in 3D strength. When viewing such content, adjusting the slider will
only switch between 2D and 3D images. If you nd the 3D eect to be uncomfortably strong while viewing these types of content, it may help to hold
the system at a greater distance from your face. If you still nd it dicult to see, then try viewing the content in 2D.
Display of 3D images can be disabled in Parental Controls (page 78).
Do not view 3D images in direct sunlight or in the direct path of other strong light sources. This may make the 3D images dicult to see.
3D images may be dicult to see depending on your surroundings (page 96).
Precautions for viewing 3D Images
The use of the 3D feature by children aged six and under may cause vision damage. Everyone will have a dierent way of viewing 3D images.
If you see a double image or are unable to see 3D images even when viewing them correctly and with the proper settings, please use the
2D display only. You may need to adjust the 3D depth depending on your physical condition, the content of the images and your surrounding
environment. If you experience double vision, headaches, nausea, tired eyes or any sudden changes in your condition, stop playing immediately
and take a break.
For health and safety advice on 3D images, see page 13.
