Sony Vegas Pro 10 is among the first more professionally oriented and affordable video editors to start offering stereoscopic 3D video support. Stereoscopic 3D support that is intuitive and easy to work with almost just like you would do with 2D video content, and this is what makes it especially easy to move to editing 3D video if you had some experience with the software working with 2D content before. But no matter if you are new to working with 3D video using Vegas Pro 10 from Sony, the “Stereoscopic 3D Workflow in Vegas Pro 10” free video webinar with Gary Rebholz is something that you might want to take a look at. You can either watch the video streaming online or download it in FLV format for having it handy on your computer for future reference while learning to work with 3D video in Vegas. The video covers the basics of the whole 3D workflow in Vegas Pro 10, so you will have a good understanding of how everything works and from there on you can go and experiment with the more advanced features. So do take a look at the video if you haven’t done so yet as it has been available for a while, as it might prove useful to you even if you are not a Vegas Pro 10 user…

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.

Sony Vegas Pro 10 was the first professional and affordable NLE video editor to feature official stereoscopic 3D support in the video editing workflow and not to add it through some workarounds or additional plugins. But Sony is further improving the stereo 3D capabilities of their software and the latest version 10.0d that is expected later this month will bring more interesting new features. Not all of course are related to stereoscopic 3D support, but lets take a look at the ones that are:
3D MVC and MPO File Format Support – Additional native support for emerging MVC and MPO 3D file formats provides continued functionality with cutting edge camera and media technology (Sony cameras that support these formats include: TD10, NX3D1, TD300, and the Alpha and NEX series).
3D Blu-ray Disc Timeline Burning – New burning capability allows users to burn full HD 3D Blu-ray Discs onto BD-R/BD-RE media, providing editors with a complete ingest, edit and delivery option for 3D media.
As you can see the new version will make Sony Vegas 10.0d the first affordable Blu-ray 3D authoring solution that would allow much wider audience to edit and publish their video content in the new Blu-ray 3D format. Of course Vegas Pro 10.0d won’t have all the features of the high-end and much more expensive authoring solutions, but it is a good start to get the more basic functionality at a very affordable price or even for free… if you already purchased a license for Sony Vegas Pro 10. The new Vegas Pro 10.0d will be available for download in late April and is free for existing registered Vegas Pro 10 users, or $249.95 for owners of Vegas Pro 9 or prior willing to upgrade. Vegas Pro 10.0d is also available for purchase at retailers worldwide for a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $699.95 USD.
