Toggles the stereoHIT attribute's contribution.
stereoHorizontalImageTranslate (hit) double0.0outputinputconnectablestorable
Film Back offset (inches) for stereo. This attribute is useful only when you have a stereo camera rig setup. Stereo camera rigs involve more than one camera (i.e. leftCam and rightCam) and this attribute can be used to control the stereo point of zero parallax between the two cameras. Generally, it should not be used in a single camera setup.
