Importing 3D MTS files into AVID 6.5
on Jan 23, 2013 at 5:08:19 pm

I have some stereoscopic 3D MTS files that I need to import into AVID 6.5

I do not have the camera they were shot on just the files. Is this possible or do I need seperate software to demux them?

I am working on a Mac with Mountain Lion.

Thanks

You should just need to download the AVCHD plugin to AMA the footage, and you'll need to know if the camera shot them over/under or side by side. If you're unsure, I believe you can toggle between those in your stereoscopic settings.

I have linked the MTS files with AMA.

I tried both side by side and over/under but it seems these settings are not correct - the video was stretched and the left and right views were way out.

I have run the MTS's through MVCtoAVI program on my PC and it has split the streams to left and right. This seems to be the correct method. But I am surprised AVID cannot do this itself?

Am I missing something?

There is no way that I know of to import the MTS files as 3D into Avid. I convert the MTS to Cineform files then import/transcode them into the Avid as qhat ever 3D format you prefer(side by side, separate left/right eye, etc.).

After hearing great things about Avid 6.5 and its 3D capabilities this is of a surprise.

So really the only options are to use MVCtoAVI to split the streams, Cineform, Magix or Sony Vegas.

Humph. As I mainly work on a Mac this workflow will be troublesome!

Thanks

I love the 3D capabilities of the Avid and have used them on several 3D projects including the current 3D feature I am on. The inability to import 3D MTS files natively is a nuisance if that is your main 3D source format. Cineform works on both Mac & PC.
