I'd just like to be able to put some of the full res JVC stuff on disc for easy playback.
I think Frank did create an iso and uploaded it for people to check out. I haven't looked at it yet.
I examined my first 3D blu Ray here and it looked amazing. What impressed me was the upconversion of the Bloggie 3D clips when rendered to the BluRay burn and played back on the big screen. There was more detail in the video than I could see in the half res rendering playbacks. Color saturation was better and edge sharpness better.
I was surprised with the ability to control the video with my remote as before the absence of menus gave me an auto run dvd, but this allowed almost full remote control of playback.
Besides JVC file incompatibility, another thing you can't do with Vegas is take a video clip that is already in SBS format and put it on the timeline for this blu ray burn. What you get is a screen with two images SBS. The render process does not make that SBS back to full 3D. I had hoped to take some of the MP4 files that have been uploaded and put them in the Blu Ray burn but they remain SBS.
I also noticed two new render output selections in the Render As selection:
1. MVC 1080 x 1920 24P @ 10MBPS
2. MVC 720 x 1280 60P @ 10 MBPS
1. The description states "Use this selection to create 2 video streams at 23.976 fps at 1080 x 1920 at 10 MBPS"
These outputs are not real important today but for the future when DVD A supports 3D authoring, you will use this setting to port the rendered timeline to DVD A for full 3D BluRay with menus. It's the best hint that this is coming as it would serve no other purpose otherwise.
Considering the Sony HDR TD10 only shoots 2x: 1080i x 1920 29.97fps, I wonder how good this 2/3 pull down will look when it ends up converted to this format.
