Hmmm. I don't think I've changed any basic workflow settings for the JVC files, but I'm not sure I posted the details. Here's what I use when I launch Edius:
For "Project file" select
Project name: My Project Title
Folder: choose the folder where you want the project to reside
Check "Customize" and hit "OK."
Video Preset: HD 1920x1080 59.94i
Audio Preset: 48kHz/8ch
"Advanced" Drop Down Menu:
Stereoscopic Editing: Enable
Render format: Canopus HQ Standard.
Resampling method: Lanczos 2
So far I've left other settings at their defaults. The 60i JVC clips play back just fine on my systems with these settings.
It's only been two days, so I haven't experimented much with export codecs. Here's how you set that:
Go to File>Export>Print to file... (or F11)
In the left column, pick the file type: AVI>Canopus HQ Fine or Standard. I've used Canopus HQX Superfine but that uses tons of space on the drive. I'd suggest you try HQ Fine or Standard (because that's what I'll do next) to see if it maintains enough image quality. I have lots of experimenting to do to find a good balance of file size and quality.
Check "Enable Conversion" if you want Edius to do the de-interlacing and scaling instead of Vegas:
Select "Stereoscopic processing: L/R Dual Stream."
Select the "Advanced" drop down menu.
Check "Change Video Format."
Select HD 1920x1080 23.98p
Select where you want the file to be saved., give it a descriptive name and hit "Save."
It will render as a single file with left/right streams in the Canopus HQ xxx codec.
When it's finished, drop it into Vegas and create the Blu-ray 3D disc. That's it. My results were stellar!
If you don't want Edius to do the 60i to 24p conversion, don't check the "Enable Conversion" box. The export format will use your project settings. You want to edit in interlaced, because it will look smoother, but you can export in any format you want.
This is not a refined work flow. It anyone comes up with better settings, let us know. I haven't had much of a chance to try different things.
