Systems, methods, and computing devices for capturing synthetic stereoscopic content are provided. An example computing device includes at least one processor and memory. The memory stores instructions that cause the computing device to receive a three-dimensional scene. The instructions may additionally cause the computing device to reposition vertices of the three-dimensional scene to compensate for variations in camera location in a directional stereoscopic projection and generate a stereoscopic image based on the repositioned vertices. An example method includes projecting a three-dimensional scene onto a left eye image cube and a right eye image cube and repositioning vertices of the three-dimensional scene to adjust for rendering from a single camera location. The method also includes mapping pixels of a stereoscopic image to points on the left eye image cube and the right eye image cube and generating the stereoscopic image using the values of the mapped pixels.
