Re: MVC files to SIDE BY SIDE??!

Theoretically, top-bottom-half is much better for passive monitors, compared with sbs-half, since that takes better into account how passive monitors and HDTV works. In the practice the difference is limited, but give it a try. There is another discussion about that:

Side by side vs line by line interlaced

And if you are down to sbs-half after rendering, you will have lost half of the resolution. So a lot of people use that for the preview, but for final rendering they will try to maintain full resolution.

Yes, maybe a separate PC would be the best solution, even if I know that some people run Edius or Vegas also on a Mac. It is a shame that there is no MVC-Encoder for the Mac-world up to now - at least as far as I know not for the prosumer world where people are willing and able to spend some hundred U$ maybe.

Be aware that even with Vegas you are not able to generate 3D-BDs with menus. That is something that is supported by both Cyberlinks PD10 but also Magix Pro X4 to some extend, but this two solutions have other issues at the moment. But some people try to combine Vegas together with the PD10 for that reason - to be able to end up with some 3D-BD-menus without a U$ 20.000 solution. So maybe a workflow for you could also combine different NLEs, depending on what you wish to go.
Kind regards,

Re: MVC files to SIDE BY SIDE??!

Marcello, I'll be boring and chip in with my usual comment at this point that I run Edius 6.5 on an iMac using Win7 running under Parallels 7 and it's fine. Not as clumsy as boot camp and you can keep an OSX interface for most of the rest of your work if you prefer. All files can be shared between OSX and Win7.

And of course, with respect to Wolfgang ;), you could also run Sony Vegas on a Mac in the same way.

Re: MVC files to SIDE BY SIDE??!

Thanks to both.. I'll have to switch to PC if the story gets serious... At present I really would like just to view my editings in full MVC on my home 3DTV by Samsung.. that's all...We'll see what happens. Thanks again
