When you run Microsoft PowerPoint for the first time after installing Presente3D you will see the Presente3D Tab appear on your Microsoft PowerPoint Ribbon Bar.
Presente3D Ribbon Bar in Microsoft PowerPoint 2013
This is where you will access all the features of Presente3D from within Microsoft PowerPoint.
Contains settings for selecting your 3D Display Mode, setting quality level of your scene, checking for product updates, and information about your product like license information.
The 3D display mode allows a user to select the appropriate rendering method for displaying the 3D content created in Presente3D for the 3D output device that is required for viewing stereoscopic 3D content.
Presente3D 3D Display Mode Options
Single Camera Mode
The single camera mode will render the Presente3D renderer with one single view commonly known as monoscopic. The user will not have the ability to view the 3D Presentation in Stereoscopic 3D.
Side by Side (Half)
The side by side 3D display mode is commonly used on 3D-enabled Projectors and 3DTVS that support Side by Side 3D. Presente3D will render the presentation with the Left Eye on the Left portion of the screen and the Right eye image on the Right portion of the screen at half the resolution for each eye.

Note: You must manually enable Side by Side stereo mode on your 3D enabled display through the 3D settings menu on your 3D enabled device.
Above-Below (Top – Bottom)
The Above - Below 3D display mode is commonly used on 3D-enabled Projectors and 3DTVS that support above – below stacking of the Right and left eye image. It is also commonly termed Top-Bottom display mode. Presente3D will render the presentation with the Left Eye on the Top portion of the screen and the Right eye image on the Bottom portion of the screen at half the resolution for each eye.
Presente3D Renderer running in Above-below Mode
Note: You must manually enable Above-Below or Top-Bottom mode on your 3D enabled display through the 3D settings menu on your 3D enabled device.
The FrameSequential display mode is commonly used on 3D DLP Projectors that support 120HZ refresh rates and active shutter glasses with DLP Link support. Frame sequential 3D, as the name implies, consists of a sequence of alternating frames wherein each successive frame carries the image meant for one or the other eye. This means that if Frame number 1 contains the image for the left eye, then frame number 2 carries the image meant for the right eye, with frame number 3 again carrying the image for the left eye, and so on and so forth.
Note: In order to run FrameSequential 3D stereo with Presente3D you are required to have an Nvidia Quadro card that supports Quadbuffered stereo.

The quality level drop down allows users to select how high of resolution you would like to have in the 3D data that is created. The higher the quality the level the larger the amount of geometry is created for each shape and higher resolution images that are used for geometry. The quality level that you choose is dependent on how large of slide show you have created and the power of the PC you will display the presentation on.
Presente3D Quality Level Drop down menu.
By default quality level is set at Good. It is recommended that you run at this level for most presentation. If you have a small presentation or high powered PC you can run at High resolution.
Note: If Presente3D crashes when converting your presentation it is recommended that you select a lower quality level and re-export your presentation.
Presente3D will periodically check for software updates from the Presente3D website. At any time you can check for updates by selecting the Check for Updates button. If a new version is available you will be prompted with a message to download anew version from our Presente3D website at http://www.presente3d.com.
