Sony Vegas Pro 10.0d With MVC Support is Now Officially Available

May 8th, 2011 · 21 Comments · General 3D News


After a slight delay Sony Vegas Pro 10 is now updated to version 10.0d and the new update comes with support for MVC (Multiview Video Coding) file format that is being used by Sony’s HDR-TD10 camcorders for example. MVC is also the format used for compressing video for Blu-ray 3D movies and it is also used by other 3D camcorders such as JVC GS-TD1 and it will most likely be used even much more in the future. Another interesting new feature in Sony Vegas Pro 10.0d is the addition of support for MPO (multiple picture object) file format that is being used by Sony Cyber-shot 3D Sweep Panorama feature as well as other 3D digital cameras for recording 3D photos. There is also the added support for burning a Blu-ray 3D Disc from the time-line which is kind of making Sony Vegas Pro 10.0d the most affordable Blu-ray 3D authoring solution, although we are talking just about the most basic functionality and not something that can compete with full featured and much more expensive solutions designed for Blu-ray 3D authoring. If you’ve already tried some of these new features you are welcome to share your feedback below, especially regarding the MVC support…

Regarding the use of Vegas with 3D Vision, here is an important note from Sony:

When using the Stereoscopic 3D Graphic Card as your preview device with an nVidia 3D Vision for Quadro or 3D Vision Pro setup on a Windows Vista machine, the 3D output may stop when opening another window (such as a video FX property page). If this occurs, please make sure you have the latest graphic card driver and 3D Vision USB driver installed. If installing the latest drivers does not fix the problem, try switching the primary and secondary monitors. There is also a known issue where content on the main window will flicker. This can be fixed by moving another window over the portions of the window that are flickering and then closing the overlapping window. We recommend Windows 7 for nVidia 3D Vision for Quadro setups.

The new Vegas Pro 10.0d is already available for download and is free for existing registered Vegas Pro 10 users, or $249.95 USD for owners of Vegas Pro 9 license or prior version willing to upgrade to 10. Sony Vegas Pro 10.0d is also available for purchase at retailers worldwide for a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $699.95 USD.

    10.0d does not support JVC’s MVC-in-MP4 file format. Not yet, at least.

  • 2 Mathew Orman // May 9, 2011 at 08:53

    False information. It does not burn 3D Blu-rays.
    It does not even encode as 2D+Delta.
    The included MVC encoder in not related to 3D Blu-ray format.
    Waist of time.
    Still the best choice for Blu-ray 3D is Encore CS5

    Have you tested it?
    I created 3dbluray iso with 10d. I only mounted it, and play with pdvd10, but you say i cannot burn to disc with Vegas?

    I found this: “Currently Encore CS5 does not provide for true BD 3D authoring”

  • 4 Computer Cowboy // May 9, 2011 at 17:07

    @Max
    Can you browse the ISO and see if there is a SSIF folder in the stream directory?

  • 5 Max // May 9, 2011 at 18:23

    yes, of course it is…

  • 6 Mathew Orman // May 9, 2011 at 19:00

    What stereoscopic format did you use?
    The 3D Blue-ray format requires base and dependent views.
    How did you assign the views for the encoding?
    I can create Blu-ray 3D but not 3D Blu-ray.
    Please advice.

    My apologies. It does create 3D Blu-ray format DB.
    That is fantastic.
    In did it is the lowest cost 3D BD authoring.

    Just made an ISO and it is perfect.
    Thank you Sony.
    Thank you for posting the news.

    This is why we wait so much this release…
    Now comes the 3d menu to DVDA.
    Hope in the near future…

  • 10 kingsmeadow // May 10, 2011 at 09:48

    now the million dollar question ???

    does a 3D video compiled with this software cause the 3DTV to automatically recognize that it is indeed 3D ?????? not just bluray but any 3D format.

  • 11 Max // May 10, 2011 at 12:31

    Yes, TV switch automatically as reported by avsforum users.
    Unbelievable, right? :)

  • 12 Mathew Orman // May 10, 2011 at 13:15

    Yes,

    but it has to be connected to 3D BD player via HDMI 1.4a.

    Vegas Pro support for the TD10 is VERY VERY WEAK. Yes it can edit the video side-by-side natively. But as for encoding and burning Blu Ray 3D it is terrible. The TD10 records 3D in 1080-60i, it offers no options on that in 3D mode. Vegas Pro has two profiles for Blu Ray 3D discs: 1080-24p, and 720p. Either way it has to re-encode 100% of the vid from the cam to make the disc. On an i7-860 that runs at about 5% to 20% of realtime, that is 5 to 20 times as long as the vid. And of course there is a generation loss. But wait! There’s more! The whole point of this format is that the 2nd video stream is supposed to be much smaller than the first one, because it does things like borrow P-frames and “predict” frames in the 2nd stream based on the first one. But in fact, the second vid stream output by Sony’s codec is slightly larger than the first one! Making the whole exercise waste of space as well as time!

    Never mind compatibility with JVC! Sony needs to rework Vegas Pro to have a 3D output format that is actually compatible with the footage from Sony’s own 3D cam!

    Hi, I’m new to this forum, so just let me ask a stupid question: The second file is MVC, and most difficulties come from this file. But MVC is backward compatible with AVC right? So what happens if the second file, which should be MVC, is in fact AVC? Is the decoder of the Bluray player able to decode the second file? Has anybody tried this?

  • 15 Jean-Luc // Jun 21, 2011 at 14:25

    Only authoring BD MVC 1920 x 1080 24p @10M or MVC 1440 x 720 60i…. that not serious ? I have a camera sony HDR-TD10E , the video is MVC 1920×1080 50i 28M, no compatibily with native format HDR-TD10e, bad quality, read AVC/MVC on 2D player is demi framerate …..5M, Sony dont now “smart rendering” only reencoding modified sequence,not all….

  • 16 Jean-Luc // Jun 21, 2011 at 14:30

    @Michel Alard : Yes MVC format is compatible 100% AVC, but only on 2D, the 3D is ignored, In Nerovision, you can editing MVC like AVC, even in smart rendering.

    Blueray or not can the files play back with active glasses eithe via file playback or blueray, i am not ready to dist my stuff just test it

  • 18 Pedro // Nov 28, 2011 at 19:34

    Is nice to see that Vegas can creat 3D contents. I am building new machine for edition, what is the best Nvidia Quadro for Vegas, for 3D edition?
    Thank you very much

  • 19 Pedro // Nov 28, 2011 at 19:35

    I will use this camera Sony HXRNX3D1U

  • 20 Bloody // Nov 28, 2011 at 21:21

    With the new Vegas Pro 11 apparently there is no need for a Quadro card anymore to be able to edit and preview on a single 3D monitor, you should be able to do it with a GeForce video card and 3D Vision.

  • 21 daniel // Dec 24, 2011 at 08:41

    You can edit videos 3d ati hd 5870 card and display the result in a 3d lg 2342p monitor with passive glasses?
