I hoped Sony Vegas would do it, but I don't see that choice in it's menus. I've read Frank's cool thread on making home 3D video in side-by-side format, but DLP Link wants field sequential. So, anyone know how to render 120 Hz field sequential video?
I've never heard of frame sequential video.
It would be very hard to encode such since the mpeg encoder would detect extreme amount of motion between consecutive frames. May be it could work as uncompressed stream. Also to play it would require supercomputer.
Finally you would also need a camera that captures images with 60 Hz progressive mode and for HD quality
I do not think that there is one for less than 10k.
May be you are confusing flicker-less shutter switching speed with video frame rate.
120 Hz usually reefers to quad buffer output speed.
The video input rate for quad buffer is usually 3 times less
or 30Hz for stereoscopic pair.
DLP-Link has two versions now:
One, older without quad buffer using VGA D-sub input
and new one with quad buffer inside the projector using HDMI 1.4a.
In both cases the video frame rate should be 30Hz in
SbS, OaU or dual stream. There is no frame sequential video format because it would be very hard to determine which is left and which is right eye frame.
Hope this helps.
