The effective visualization of three-dimensional (3D) datasets, both observationally and computationally sourced, is becoming common in solar physics. We present example plots of data from a 3D magnetohydrodynamical simulation, where depth perception is simulated using chromostereoscopy. The depth information is coded into the images using colours. When such images are viewed with double prism refraction ChromaDepth(TM) 3D glasses, a pronounced 3D effect is achieved. This visualization method is especially suited for working with and presenting computationally derived 3D datasets.
