Re: Edit Suite Output 3D monitors

Juergen, I have two LG DM2780D's and just connect them via HDMI from my Macbook and iMac. They work fine. As long as you can provide an HDMI connection they'll be ok - if you have DVI then just buy a simple DVI-to-HDMI adapter (about 10 euros).

In Final Cut go to the View menu and then External Video and select All Frames and Refresh A/V when you connect. Sometimes it takes a bit of fiddling but once it's established the connection it's pretty solid. Stereo3DToolbox runs as normal and all the 3D modes can output to the second monitor. You will have to put the TV into 3D mode manually though.

To my delight I discovered that these great little 3D TV/monitors can also play .mov files directly off a USB stick, just like their big brother the LG LD950. I was quite surprised, because just about every other consumer TV out there will only play DivX from their USB ports. Being able to put side-by-side quicktime movies onto a USB stick and play it out as a 3D showreel is a pretty handy thing to be able to do.

By the way, I think these 2780's are a bargain, I got mine for about £230 + VAT each.

Re: Edit Suite Output 3D monitors

Neil, Thanks a lot for your reply.
So that means, the LG will accept on its HDMI IN a DVI side-by-side signal coming from Final Cut Pro (with Stereo 3D Toolbox Plug-In), which is being outputted via a DVI-HDMI adapter?
Is this correct? That sound too good to be true!?!

It's true Juergen.

I've been driving 3D monitors for nearly 2 years from Macs and never spent more than £7 for an adapter plus the cost of an HDMI cable.
