Tape delivery of 3D stereo video

In experimental stage of stereo anaglyph output.
Maya animated sequence, works perfect played off PC.
As soon as I encode for Blu-Ray or DVD I lose chroma info and get ghosting.
We imported seq into Avid Adrenaline, played fine out of AVID.
Layed off to DVC Pro 50 deck and the playback had GHOSTING!
WHY? I thought the DVC pro format kept all the color info (4:4:4, 4:2:2???)
This is frustrating, I'm prepping to show this video to management next month and at this point the results are unacceptable. I could go with PC playback but I trust a Windows PC/Laptop as far as I can throw it. (sudden hitches in playback not good in front of 1000 people looking at a 40' wide screen).

Any suggestions?

Uncompressed DDR not viable...no budget...keeping this production on cheap, that's why we are using cheapo cardbpard red/cyan glasses and one projector anaglyph output.

Thanks in advance

DVCPRO50 should be 4:2:2 so that in itself may not be the problem. How are you watching the footage, what connection do you have to the monitor. For good colour reproduction you need a component monitor or SDi monitor connected via component or SDI. The single cable composite cable won't give very good results.
