3D Again

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Gary Eickmeier, Feb 25, 2013.

  1. I upgraded my Cyberlink Powerdirector to the latest, 11, to see if they have
    imporved the options for making Blu-ray discs in 3D. They have not.

    You are offered but two choices: Make a 1920 x 1080 24P disc, or make it
    1280 x 720 60i. I find that the 1280 is a fine resolution, but I see no
    reason why they can't make a proper 1920 x 1080 in 60i. I thought I read
    somewhere that this is an HDMI 1.4 limitation, but I can't imagine why.that
    would be. Anyone?

    After reading this I'm wondering if the make 3D video monitors for
    computers as you would to see the video in 3D as your editing it unless you
    output it to a 3D TV from he computer.

    Sony Vegas Pro offers 3D editing features.
    Create 3D projects as easily as 2D
    Create stereoscopic 3D projects utilizing the same 2D media workflow! Vegas
    Pro 12 provides the ability to import, adjust, edit, preview, and output
    stereoscopic 3D media — all using industry-standard professional delivery
    formats including single or dual files with side-by-side, top/bottom, or
    line-alternate encoding. Anaglyphic monitoring and output are also

  3. So can you tell what formats it will output the 3D movie in? Can it do a
    Blu-ray disc in 1920 x 1080 60i? Or is that not a part of the DVD standard?

    Far as I know Blu-ray is the only media that produces 3D on a 3D TV.
    An extra file is included on the disc that controls the 3D.

    If you do a google search on blu-ray 3D then you'll get more information.

    If your asking what formats Vegas outputs in 3D then I'll get back to you
    on that.

  6. I would be grateful.

  7. OK this question is beginning to drive me nuts. I can't find an answer
    anywhere. This is just about the most basic piece of information you could
    ask about outputting your work, what kinds of files can it output to? My
    Cyberlink has only those two in 3D disc mode, 1920 x 1080 24P or 1280 x 720
    in 60i. Is that a limitation of my program, a fault of my computer, or a
    property of the Blu-ray standard?

    As Vegas is a advanced video editor it offers 9 different 3D formats. Some
    are side by side pictures offering half the normal resolution and others
    offer full resolution such as the line alternate format found on some 3D

    Take a look at this site and it will start to make sense to you as TV's
    have different 3D methods for creating a 3D picture


    Vegas offers:
    MVC 1280x720 60p
    MVC 1280x720 50p
    MVC 1920x1080 24p
    These are at 25 Mbps video stream
    As I have not used the 3D part of Vegas this information is from the Vegas

    I hope this helps.

    The Blu-ray 3D format is two full resolution 1920x1080p images, plus a
    small buffer of dark pixels to separate them
    Brian, Feb 26, 2013
  10. Well then great Brian, I was right! This says that even Vegas Pro has no
    more MVC formats than the 1280 x 720P and the 1920 x 1080/24. So there IS no
    1920 x 1080/30P or 60i format. Some idiot from Cyberlink was going to put me
    through several nightmare's of upgrading my computer drivers or programs to
    see if I could get the 60i to come up, and that mode doesn't even exist in
    the Blu-ray standard.

    Thanks again - this info was unbelievably hard to find.
