3D Vision Video Player Version 1.7.2 Now Available

July 28th, 2011 · 1 Comment · GeForce 3D Vision

Nvidia has also released an updated version of the 3D Vision Video Player Version 1.7.2 along their latest 280.19 beta GeForce driver (the latest Stereoscopic Player is version 1.7.3 and it has some extra features). The most interesting thing in the new 3D Vision Video Player 1.7.2 is the support for Windowed 3D mode along with the MVC decoding support, have in mind however that there is no MVC decoded included in the package. And although the Player can now decode MVC with a proper additional codec, it does not mean that it will be able to play encrypted Blu-ray 3D movies, for that you would still need to use a full featured Blu-ray 3D software player such as PowerDVD for example. The MVC decoding support is good to have if you are recording for example video in MVC format with a 3D camcorder or need to play back such content without having to convert it in another format, again yo would need to have a proper decoded for MVC installed additionally.

Version 1.7.2 new features:

– Added support for 3D Vision Window mode. Please view this knowledgebase article for more information on 3D Vision Window Mode.
– Added support for interlaced MVC content.
– Added support for MVC content in MP4 containers.
– Added ‘default’ option in full screen monitor menu.
– Added error message when opening encrypted Blu-ray files.
– Added option for DMX512 output to send only used channels.

Version 1.7.2 bug fixes:

– Fixed issue with Coraline Blu-ray disc.
– Fixed seeking deadlocks with left/right *.m2ts files.
– Fixed exception when calling GetDuration automation command on still files.
– Fixed that player doesn’t close file handles of jpg files.
– Fixed long load delay with certain files when ffdshow Video Decoder is used.
– Fixed error after resume from sleep mode.
– Fixed DirectX recreation error after fast user switching.
– Fixed compatibility issue with DivX Demux Filter.
– Fixed issue with H.264 AVIs with resolution greater 1920×1080.
– Fixed issue when opening left/right *.m2ts files from Blu-ray 3D discs.

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.
