Hmm.  OK.  I have no trouble bringing in the files into resolve for normal editing.   But Fusion is not reading them.  I guess I could convert Quicktime to an image sequence if needed and re-import.   I was thinking maybe I could have two MediaIn nodes for the source footage instead of two loaders but could not get that to work either.  Again, thanks so much for the rapid reply!!

Hi Lee,

So I came up with a solution that worked.  I put the left and right eye together in the same timeline, one above the other, selected them both, then right clicked and made a new fusion clip.  That gave me two Media In nodes that did function and then followed your lesson on using Stereo Align.  However I now have another question.  The end of the lesson does not explain how to render back out of fusion.  I assume that fusion cannot create a stereo clip back in the timeline.  So I would have to render out each corrected eye from Fusion.  But I'm not sure how to do that.  I imagine that I would replace the anaglyph node with something else, then hook up to MediaOut.  Please advise....

Lesson 5 shows how to combine the stereo images to make a top/bottom or side-by-side combination, which you can then pass through a single MediaOut tool (useful for VR applications). If you need to render the left and right separately, then, yes, you would have to render them individually or pass them through two MediaOuts (you can have more than one).

Hi Lee.   Another stereo question.   I just managed to hook up an external 3D monitor (Marshall 3D).  It will accept a L-R input over a single SDI.  When I am on the color page this works, since I can select Side by Side under "out" in the 3D tab.  However when I go to the edit page the signal changes to some kind of interlaced format.  I cannot find anywhere in preferences where I can change this.    Is it possible to set the monitor output to side by side from the edit page, or am I only able to have that in the color page.   Thanks in advance for your time!   Great class BTW!

That, I do not know as I spend little time in the Edit tab. I'm afraid I would have to spend some time trying to figure that out myself...

Thanks Lee.  Turns out it's not really necessary.  I can just edit with the 2D image, then do all the stereo work in the color page.  Thanks so much for all your help.  Enormously helpful.  Resolve has really great stereo tools, but the manual is not very good at explaining workflow.  So thank you again!!!!  John

Glad you worked it out.

In lesson 06, I'm not sure that's the appropriate way to create text and masking. Doing this by hand is sure to lead to discrepancies between the left and right eye (especially for masking). Is there not a way to utilize the disparity node to generate what you mask on the left eye and translate it over to the right? That, to me, seems a far smarter way to work.

This is amazing stuff!

Do you have have any tutorials on how to remove tripods or drone propellers using these methods on Top/Bottom 360 video or any 3D VR video content?
