As per the "Don Landis flow" the intermediate Full TB / SBS can be converted to bluray iso compatible 1080p24 MVC using PD10.
As an intermediate step that is a true statement but the final step is to take the rendered output of PD10 for 3D BD with menus and produce a folder structure that can be burned to a 3DBD. Once that is done, you can use DVDFab and access that folder in place of the BR drive and create an iso file of same. That iso file will play in 3D with the menu structure with the 900B.
The firmware I have with the 900B is 18.104.22.168
Virgin TD10 m2ts files imported with PMB.
I'll check on that aspect for you in a little while. I'm still not sure I understand the importance of this, similar request you were making about PS3 playing raw TD 10 imported files. I guess you are just wanting to avoid playing from the camcorder and avoid using Vegas with a proper computer. I have not changed my position on this. I still use the camcorder to view the files I shot and if needed hook up the hdmi cable to the 3D monitor. Works for me and even files I have offloaded to a WD passport drive can be played, via the dongle connection to the camcorder. Anyway, I check on the m2ts raw clips in a little while.
Tested the TD10 m2ts file over the lan and loaded to the local HDD. While the 3D does appear to be output ( I can see depth in the 3D selection ), it seems there are some sync issues with this making it undesirable viewing.
Also, unlike OPPO BD-93 that will play full menu based 3D iso files locally, the Himedia will only play the full menu based 3D iso's using the direct play mode, not the BD 1.0 mode. What this means is the menu based 3D isos will skip right to the program and play in 3D. If I turn on the 1.0 mode the menus show up but the playback is 2D only.
I suspect this is due to limited firmware support. Seems we have a conundrum here. Full 3D playback works with OPPO that is now having to remove all iso support to maintain license compliance requirements ( extortion threats ) but the Chinese who don't care about licenses can't get the firmware working to accomplish the task. Maybe the Chinese will hack into OPPO's database and steal their intellectual property.
Currently my conclusion is that while the Himedia 900b will play my Vegas renders to iso in 3D, it will not work with my PD10 menu based productions using BD1.0, only direct view which skips the menu. BD 1.0 with menus works fine for 2D. Oppo plays 3D with menus fine but as soon as I permit the next upgrade to play new commercial 3D disks, I'll lose that capability.
I read the thread on AVS dedicated to the himedia 900b and was quite surprised that AVS would permit all the piracy talk in that thread. Seems strange. Maybe no one is monitoring. No matter how we view this morally, when you ( those people in that thread) rip a commercial 3DBD to an iso you are in violation of the DMCA. Your desired use and my practice use is to use an iso player to view our own productions. Yet I know I would be in a single minority in that thread surrounded by DMCA violators.
Richard- keep monitoring and let me know if Himedia gets some of these limitations corrected but the latest beta doesn't seem to address that. In the meantime I plan to keep my oppo off line and if a new disk doesn't play, I'll use the PS3 with firmware auto updates. That's about the best strategy for menu based 3D productions.
