Anyone who knows what 3D side by side needs to be exported?

I believe the options for different 3D frame orientations are for monitoring only (I can manually set my LG 3D TV for sidebyside, top/bottom, checkerboard, interleaved, etc.). Export will probably just create 2 new L/R files. From the new L/R exported files you could use ffmpeg and its video filter chain to squeeze both videos by half and place them side by side and export for delivery.

I've moved this into 3D editing, where it may attract interested users.

I found that we do have a bunch of export options for Stereoscopic 3D with most export formats. Obviously that isn't new at all, but I wasn't aware. Haven't tested anything yet, but the drop down looks promising.

Edit: I had never used a stereoscopic timeline before and the entry is dynamic, it appear on export of stereoscopic objects only. I wonder why this isn't documented?

3D options are included in the V14.5 User Guide on P36 and P132.

I suspect that the more advanced details of 3D may have been intended for the promised advanced user guide, which has yet to appear. However, the market demand for 3D seems to have dramatically dropped and 3D films are shot using 2D cameras. www.quora.com/Why-are-most-recent-Hollywood-3-D-movies-shot-in-2-D-and-then-converted-to-3-D-artificially-at-a-great-expense-and-using-lots-of-man-hours

Talking to an outside broadcast TV company when 3D was an in format for sports events, it took an extra day of rigging time to align the 3D on the cameras.

I stand corrected. Though, if you do want separate L & R export files, you have to do them separately.

It wasn't my intention to criticize, but to inform. I never saw this export option before, since it appears only if exporting stereoscopic material and never with Vimeo/Youtube presets.

I've just picked up a short sample in side by side stereoscopic from Avatar 3D and splittet it to left/right. The pair imports and shows up in the timline as expected. I'm testing export of images sequences. With the option 'Left/right dual stream' it creates two image sequences for left and right eye all at once. Looks well tested, so far.

Wasn't Hugo produced in 3D?

For those who want to test: I've bundled the original in SBSL, the L/R files for stereoscopic import, and a file exported with Lightworks in SBSL. In total 170 MB for download.

Yoda says: Downloading from here you can young padawan.

Feedback on how the original vs the exported file look on 3D-capable TV sets or monitors truly appreciated, since there are multiple scaling-, decoding- and encoding-operations in between and, I don't have 3D gear.

Guess what that shows.

This is the command line template I've used to split the Fujifilm Finepix Real 3D W3 footage, in order to create an importable stereoscopic pair:
ffmpeg  -i "<in>".avi -y -c:v copy -c:a pcm_s16le -ar 48000 -map 0:0 -map 0:1 "%folder%\%~n1"L.mov -map 0:2 -map 0:1 -c:v copy -c:a pcm_s16le -ar 48000 "<out>"R.mov
Where <in> and <out> are to be replaced with real file names.

I don't know how it looks, because I have no 3D gear to watch.

Edit: I modified the command line to encode the audio, instead of copying it.
