The player will output Line Interleave 3D regardless what file you are playing, resolution, interlace, or progressive. Also, it doesn't matter what file format it is as that must be declared in the player as either auto recognize or manually set. In all the editors, I have had to manually set the SBSh mode. Camcorder files not SBSh are automatically recognized in the following editors:
I have tested these players:
Vegas Pro only works on output, not preview. (Called 'Line Alternate")
Vegas Movie Studio
Edius Pro 7 works for both Player and Rec windows
or any player that offers a Line Interleave 3D output mode. ( I believe stereoscopic player does work too but it's been so long I just don't remember )
They all output Line Interleave on:
Vizio Passive Monitor
LG Passive Monitor
Samsung Passive Monitor
Put monitor in 2D mode, 3D off and put on the passive glasses.
Line interleave does not work ( from my experience ) with active 3D monitors.
These players will not work because they do not support 3D Line interleave output:
Windows Media Player
Quick Time Player
Windows image display.
These can only play 3D in SBSh mode.
Most 3D BD players do not support Line Interleave.
Finally, if using a single monitor, you will have to select full screen and toggle back and forth because Line interleave will not recognize a 2D with windowed 3D. There is only one monitor technology that will do that as I recall and that is a checkerboard 3D monitor and those are hard to find these days.
