Sony Vegas Pro 10.0d Will Offer Blu-ray 3D Authoring Capabilities

April 14th, 2011 · 10 Comments · General 3D News

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.

    Vegas PR rep hinted at this to me a while back, and requested a sample file shot with the JVC 3D camcorder. I hope 10d supports JVC MVC fileformat too.

    Well, I suppose the JVC uses the standard MVC 3D format, so it will probably be compatible… and they are probably making sure it will work considering they requested a sample to test.

    We can import to Vegas the SSIF files? (if its not encrypted)

    What about a simple 3dbluray menu?
    (i think dvd architect will not support 3dbluray format yet, only we can write the disc from vegas timeline without menu)

    Bloody, AFAIK there are several different solutions for how to save AVC+MVC data in a file, so Vegas opening JVC’s 3D files is not a foregone conclusion. Fingers crossed!

    Let us know when it is out.
    Currently frame compatible side by side format outperforms the 2D+Delta MVC format.

    SSIF is not a file but virtual interleaving of 2D+delta streams.
    It only exists on BD as UDF structure component.
    Vegas PRO 10.0d will not read ISOs nor convert it to basic file structure of MVC.

    Yes i know.
    Just thinked what would be, if i copy the ssif file to harddrive, and try to open in vegas.

    I have Vegas Pro 10 and it is awesome, still waiting on my cameras so I can start really using it.

    BTW, I tried opening a SSIF with Vegas, no go, renamed it to M2TS which is supported and it gave an error.

    It does a terrific job with stereo content from separate files though
