Full Width Side-by-Side Movies (FSBS)


RENDER FULL WIDTH SIDE-BY-SIDE 3D VIDEO

IN SONY VEGAS (12)

Also – Sony Media Studio (13)

 

Sony Vegas and Movie Studio are not very user friendly when it comes to working with 3D content. If you require TV ready, half width, side-by-side (HSBS) video, this can be achieved quite easily; full width, side-by-side (FSBS) is a different matter. By full FSBS, I am referring to an overall frame size of High Definition, 3840 x 1080 pixles.

 

On the basis that you are familier with normal workings of Sony Vegas, I will just highlight the significant differences when requiring to render FSBS.

 

Beginning with ‘Project Properties’ (File -> Project Properties), select ‘Video’ tab and enter 3840 as ‘Width’ and 1080 as ‘Height’. Whatever was the default ‘Template’, will now reflect these settings as highlighted in Fig 1. You should also set ‘Stereoscopic 3D mode’ to’Side by Side (Full)’ Leave the rest of the settings as the default and save the ‘Template’ for future use. Fig 1.

 Continue with your workflow as normal and when you are ready to ‘Render’ your video (File -> Render As), select ‘Main Concept AVC/AAC (mp4 AVC)’ drop down menu, followed by ‘Internet HD 1080p’ as seen in Fig 2.





















Fig 2. - Output File format selection.


From here, select ‘Customize Template’ and enter the details as directed in Fig 3., using the ‘Custom frame size’ and ‘Frame Size’ options.  Saving the template with your preferred title and ‘Notes’, will save the ‘Template’ and add it to the ‘Output Format’ list for future use.  

NOTE:  The frame rate selected is ist that needed for Blu-ray disks.

Clicking on ‘OK’ will now take you back to ‘Output File’ dialogue as seen in Fig 2., from where you can ‘Render’ your video.

Don’t forget to save your project upon completion.


For Sony Media Studio (13) users, the procedure is a little simpler.

Beginning with ‘Project Properties’ (File -> Project Properties), select ‘Video’ tab and enter 3840 as ‘Width’ and 1080 as ‘Height’.  Whatever was the default ‘Template’, will now reflect these settings as highlighted in Fig 4. You should also set ‘Stereoscopic 3D mode’ to ’Side by Side (Full)’  Leave the rest of the settings as the default and save the ‘Template’ for future use.

Leave the rest of the settings as the default and save the ‘Template’ for future use.

Continue with your workflow as normal and when you are ready to save your video, click on  ‘Make Movie’ and ‘Select Destination’ as ‘Save to my hard drive’ Fig 5.

Finally, ‘Give your movie a name’ and choose ‘MP4’ as the format Fig 7.  The MP4 format is the only choice for rendering to your hard drive as a full width, side by side video’.
