Stereoscopic TV
show user profile  Phil Gornall
Hi, got a 3d TV and shopping around for a BluRay player at present.

Mucking about in Max, I found the 3d stereoscopic plugin (Area) and had a play.
I produced a side by side video in sony vegas, but I cannot get it to play in 3d on my TV.

I am using a HD video phone connected to the HD on the TV. The video shows, but it is still two videos side by side, there is no merge.

I think this is because I am not using either the right type of 3d format, or I am not rendering out in Sony to the correct video format.

Can anyone offer any guidance.

Much appreciated.

or.. it could be that I need a device that can convert and broadcast the L/R frames overlayed.

email their tech support.

Thanks for the reply, but I think this is not really a tech support question.

I have managed to create the animation in 3d max using Autodesks plugin for stereoscopic 3d.
With the two output animations, I have imported them into Sony Vegas 10 and turned on 3d stereoscopy in the project.
The output video (and I have tried MPG2, MP4, MOV, AVI, WMV) comes out with the side by side half format. What I need now is a tool that when broadcasting the video, converts the two side by side images into one.

I know that Bluray does this, but could I do this from my HD video phone?

stereoscopic input configuration to stereoscopic tvs is not a technical question for the tech support team of said stereoscopic tvs.


edit: you have two options - author in some stereoscopic format & play on some 3d capable unit so the device split the inputs internally or send in two inputs for left/right as required.

can send over hdmi 1.4a apparently

that's for real-time. for prerendered, you'd still send over the same cable/protocol but would need some kind of a player to send the signal.

The TV needs to know it is a 3D video. If you made a side by side video and just viewing it through the TV how is the TV to know it is 3D? I'd imagine there are either settings in the TV to force any video footage to play in 3D or you need the video in some special format so the TV will know right away it is 3D. Anything in the manual? What is your TV brand?

Sounds like a video format/codec issue ( ie find out exactly what spec of video file the tv needs to receive and export as that format specifically - bearing in mind there are different types of stereoscopic display formats ).. Do 3d TV`s use just a standard hdmi cable when hooked up to a 3d bluray?

Thanks, I tried all the different formats for 3d on the tv and they don't work, so I guess using Occam's razor, that proves the issue is not with the TV, but with either the codec being used, the cable or the device from which I am broadcasting.

Next job, get a blu ray writer in the PC, a blu ray player for the TV and see where I go next.

why not just hdmi cable pc to tv then run a steroscopic enabled game or test app & see if you can get that working - assuming your video card /driver supports stereoscopic out. then go from there.

cheaper than buying a bluray setup unless you were planning on doing that anyway.

occam wants his razor back.

That sounds like a good idea, and probably the most simple solution.


Will be getting the blu ray anyway. I am sick of archiving each project to multiple DVD's (I keep everything)

Do I need any special software or hardware to broadcast in 3d from my PC? I would have thought I need a graphics card that can process 3d?
