3D and GTX 285

Hello

We are compositing a Stereoscopic, CGI heavy promo. We have a lovely Nehalem MacPro running CS4 and I am wondering if i adopt the following path, we can monitor succesfully and more relevantly, if anyone out there is doing the same or has a better idea?

~ Nehalem Mac Pro
~ After Effects CS4
~ NVidia GTX 285
~ One output for GUI
~ One output fed to ACER GD245HQ 23.6"
~ Nvidia 3D Vision Kit and glasses

How does that sound?

Thank you for any help

I don't think After Effects would be my first choice for compositing in stereo; it can only render one camera at a time.

Check out Nuke from The Foundry; it supports stereoscopic 3D out of the box.

Hello Walter

Many thanks for replying to my post.

My question is really based on the Hardware requirements and if anyone else out there is going down this route. We have obviously seen nuke but our compositor is working in Afetr Effects and happy with it, so i don't feel we shall shift to Nuke, mid-job.

I have a feeling i may just have to do this anyway and if i have success, i shall update!

Thanks

I've done a couple stereo tests with AE, and I found it really cumbersome because the software itself lacks built-in stereo support.

You might find some more information on the Stereoscopic 3D forum here.

I'll also point out a couple threads that helped me:
