We demonstrate the capabilities of the recently introduced interferometric parallel pulse shaper setup and present a method for fully tailoring the three-dimensional electrical field of femtosecond laser pulses. The possibility of producing parametric polarization pulses with arbitrary orientations and ellipticities in time is demonstrated with a selection of example pulses.
