You can assemble imported images into a clip containing a stereo track directly on the EditDesk. Do this, for example, when your left and right eye images are imported as separate clips.
You can also preview stereo material in the Player before bringing it into Action or Batch FX.
Note the following when working with clips containing stereo tracks on the EditDesk:
- If you create a clip containing a stereo track from two mono clips, each mono clip is placed on the corresponding left and right eye layers of the stereo track. The mono clips must share the same metadata.
The mono clips can contain multiple layers but they must have the same number of layers.
Before you create a clip containing a stereo track, remember that you must bring stereo tracks into a BFX level or Action if you want to do any compositing work.
See Creating and Splitting Stereo Tracks.
- You can create an RGB clip in Anaglyph or Interlace mode from one right eye mono clip and one left eye mono clip.
See Processing in Stereo Mode.
- You can perform many of the same EditDesk editing operations on clips containing stereo tracks as on mono clips, for example, splicing clips together or replacing frames. Note that if you are working with more than one clip, both clips must contain stereo tracks.
To identify clips containing stereo tracks on the EditDesk, see Clip Information.
- You can view the left eye and right eye layers of a stereo track on the EditDesk in the same way as the layers of a mono clip—with the up arrow and down arrow keys.
To identify how stereo layers are represented on clip proxies, see Navigating Edit Sequences.
- Inside the Player, you can specify a mode, as specified for your broadcast monitor preferences, for previewing and broadcasting stereo material.
See Comparing Tracks and Layers.
- If you realize that you need to go into an EditDesk module other than Action or a BFX level, you can split the clip containing the stereo track into two mono clips. You can always recreate the stereo track when you process. You may also need to split a stereo track back into left eye and right eye images in order to export them.
To split a clip containing a stereo track into two mono clips, see Creating and Splitting Stereo Tracks.
- You can bring a clip containing a stereo track into a Record Area view to edit the left and right eye layers.
