what hardware are you trying this on?

When i was working on something similar a couple of years ago the only 
NVidia hardware that supported the "true" OpenGL stereo quad buffer 
approach was the expensive Quadro range.

I'm not sure about ATi.

Apart from that you also had to enable stereo rendering in the NVidia 
control panel.

We used anaglyph rendering with some LCD shutter glasses and a huge 
Barco projector.

It worked fine, our issues were more with the slow rendering speed at 
the time.
