I am looking for a legal source of SBS material. I know I can "find" it on the net, but that is not what I want. Any ideas?

If the 3D video was originated by you, converting it to SBS would be legit.

Example: 3D Camcorder or still camera converted to SBS

Also, the HDMI output of the camcorder may have a mode that puts out SBS on HDMI, and that would be "legal."

If a video was copy protected, before you could convert it to SBS, the copy protection would need to be circumvented, to access and manipulate the files.

In some countries, removing the copy protection from a video, either 2D or 3D, may not be legal. This is a question requiring a legal opinion to answer, and there may be more than one opinion.

Thanks for the answer...but it wasn't really what I was looking for. Let me restate my question. Where can i buy SBS versions of 3d movies? If it is in digital form that is fine...

You can't download commercial 3D movies to your hard drive that I'm aware of. You can only stream them from your cable box, Vudu, Playstation 3 video store, etc.

A movie with good 3D does not necessarily equal a good 3D movie!

I have found none but you can use a panasonic bdt110,210,310 bluray player.These are the only bluray players that allow you to change output formats via screen menu to sbs,checkerboard,from the standard frame packed so you can play 3d bluray and output it sbs.That's what I'm going to do with my projector.

When I rented Cap America 3D on PSN for 99 cents, it downloaded the entire movie first.

I only had 24 hours to watch it (once started) but the file was on my hard drive, technically.

I guess what I meant is, you can't access those files any other way than from their intended playback devices that they are digitally signed for.

I'm sure we all know that if you want to go shoplifting at Walmart "there are ways", especially with the price of jeans. However the OP was very specific in asking about legal ways.

That is close to the answer I was hoping for. I don't mind buying a bluray player, but I really didn't want to get the optima box to convert the video. I have been using the monoprice 3d converter to take sbs ( from youtube ) and make if FS so my 3d projector can play it.

you don't need the optoma box..only the 3d creator and panasonic bluray player.

If you are willing to pay, get a Blockbuster subscription. Why watch SBS? There is 3D on Youtube also. My LG dm2350 does a great job of converting 2D to 3D. I can watch everything in 3D if I want to. This while others (mainly my wife) can watch it in 2D on the big TV.
