Today, I could kick myself for not inquiring at NAB how they had the hardware configured at Sony workstations for doing the sessions on Vegas training. Whatever they were doing it all worked nicely using the 3D passive monitor for watching the editing changes in real time. Passive is the way to go because you could continue wearing the glasses as you switched from 3D to computer monitor 2D. BUT, I understand that passive is just half resolution so that would not work for your purpose of MVC on the PC, right? I may need to wait until next year for the 4K2K passive monitors to get everything. It never ends! Meanwhile I wait for reality to happen which is my Bloggie 3D to arrive. Tracking number says today!
Here's a link to DAVTechTable YouTube videos
, and this one talks about 3D monitoring with Adobe Premiere - everything from colored glasses to active. This is a 7 part series on Premiere and Cineform's NeoHD and Neo3D, but Cineform's Firstlight works with Vegas, too. What I'm not sure about is Vegas' monitoring options. Frank's the one who's worked with Firstlight in both Premiere and Vegas. Since I've been out of the editing loop for a while, I"m still getting up to speed on these newest developments. Lots to learn. As for MVC viewing, that happens with Arcsoft's Total Media Theater 5. That's what I'll have to use to watch the JVC's mp4 files from the computer.
Last night I watched well over an hour's worth of footage I shot in MVC mode on the TD1. I didn't see any of the side by side artifacts that sometimes manifest in that mode - minor line jittering and aliasing. MVC output from the JVC is outstanding, and pretty much ghost free on my Samsung plasma display. Wish I could say the same for my JVC 3D projector. Although it's great with 3D Blu-ray, with virtually no ghosting, it ghosts badly with certain kinds of content.
