Editing 3D on Television
The VP manual states:
"If you want to preview your project on a 3D television or monitor, you can use the Preview Device tab in the Preferences dialog to configure a 3D display for previewing your project."
"If you're using an NVIDIA graphics card that supports 3D Vision technology and a 3D Vision monitor, choose the Windows Graphics Card setting from the Device drop-down list in the Preview Device tab and choose Left and Right from the Stereoscopic 3D mode drop-down list."
"If you're using an NVIDIA graphics card that supports 3D Vision technology and a 3D-capable HDTV, choose the Windows Graphics Card setting from the Device drop-down list in the Preview Device tab and use the Stereoscopic 3D mode drop-down list to choose the method your monitor uses to display stereoscopic 3D content — typically Side by side (half) or Line Alternate. Be sure to set the 3D mode in your television's setup menu and the Vegas Pro Preview Device tab."
The second paragraph above is accurate when viewing the VP Preview Window on a NVIDIA approved gaming monitor like the Alienware using NVIDIA's active shutter glasses. However, I want to edit my film on a large active shutter (Sony) 3D-capable HDTV because that is the best way to adjust the vertical and horizontal disparities accurately for displaying on large TVs. However, when I tried the latter, the Preview Window does not display the content in 3D.
MAGIX support has been no help, other than just to repeat what the manual says. One suggestion is to try a passive system like an LG or Vizio because there are no shutter synchronizing issues. However, large screen 3D TVs of any stripe are extremely hard to find under $3,000, because they have not been manufactured for several years. I am presently stuck with an active system that does not work and do not want to purchase a passive system just to find out if it will work.
Does anyone have experience with this? Should I purchase a passive system?
