Well, IF the “suddenly stopping” bug is fixed in 3.3, it seems that I have a choice between the infinitely preferable 3.2 where the images are viewed as their author intends or 3.3 where everything is viewed in the view that artificially generates the views, losing massive amounts of detail on the way unless the viewer DELIBERATELY chooses the sharper, better ST method EVERY TIME THAT AN IMAGE IS DISPLAYED. This is a nonsense approach. If I CHOOSE the ST method of viewing, Leia should not DELIBERATELY decide that I must go through the process of making my choice EVERY TIME.
Sorry, Nima, but you’ve got this one wrong. By all means default LIF files to the LIF view, but DO NOT default JPG SBS files to a view designed for a different type of file! There is no logic for this. Default them to ST - surely that is the viewing method that was designed for SBS pairs?
You said “For example, the app was storing view mode states in its cache, so when you delete and reinstall the app, or clear it’s storage and cache, those states would be lost and you’d have to manually go and switch them all again. With this new method, this state is persistent regardless of the Player’s state, and you can even send files to people on other devices or apps and it will be in Stereo view by default.” Could you explain this for me? I don’t understand how stripping out the desired viewing method makes the “state” persistent? And how can you assert that, if I send a file to “people on another device” and have any certainty of how their device will behave?
I suspect that there is more to this decision than I can understand. But it does mean that, until it’s “corrected” my Lume Pad is useless as a 3D image viewer.
