I got bored and fooled around with Vegas today. I imported Star Wars Episode I into the timeline and forgot that my Vegas was set for side by side 3D files. Well, it made Star Wars into side by side so I was curious, what would happen if I went ahead and rendered it as a 3D BD iso? So I did and Vegas kinda made it 3D. Not good 3D but fun to fool around with.
So then I cut certain scenes and added the stereoscopic 3D effect and gave some depth to some scenes I wanted and popout to others. The result was kinda good, of course nothing like a real 3D movie but interesting to watch to say the least. The biggest problem is when cutting scenes using the S key and then putting them back together it kinda shows on the final render when watching. You see a slight flicker on each cut scene.

Just a neat little thing to do when bored! Space scenes are fun to give depth and watch.

This is a real effect and you can enhance what you did as follows-
warning- this is not easy or quick and requires considerable advanced editing skills in Vegas.

You use the matte tool to cut out parts of a scene and then pull that part forward in from the background using 3D stereo graphic effect. Now for a given scene you have it in two Z axis locations at the same time. It can have a chroma key look but not flat. In scenes where the cut out moves the keyframing can get enormous but if done right the end result is amazing. The secret to hiding the original in the background is you pull the cutout forward and make it slightly larger and that covers up the smaller double hole left in the background.
