Keith Excellent article. I do think that you went light on the editing 3D section. I don't blame you, until now there hasn't been a really good affordable 3D toolset. Tim Dashwood had the only thing on the market with Stereo 3D Toolbox. The biggest problem was that FCP didn't play well it and there were issues and problems. Now FCPX is such a disaster it leaves a very big vacuum. Grass Valley Edius has just come out with a 3D version with a toolset that matches the much more expensive systems and sometimes beats them. I will tell you that I have been beta testing it and even have a case study on using it in the field while shooting the Eagle Festival in Mongolia http://www.grassvalley.com/products/edius_3d_preview. Realtime playback with no special graphics cards, edit any format, even 4K, Automatic Convergence adjustment, Keyframing of all adjustments and filters and even floating stereoscopic windows. Please check it out and tell me what you think.

Informative article although I suggest that anyone venturing into 3D would be best served by sticking with a fixed interaxial to develop the Zen. Work flow will also be improved. I recommend acquiring a film 3d still camera, shooting a dozen rolls of slide film and learning how to compose stereoscopically. Youll understand convergence better than reading and fumbling around with software, gauges and guides. In terms of NLE I currently use Vegas 11 and it has stability pitfalls (even on a $tate of the art machine) as do other programs in 3D, I'm told. Be prepared to forget most of what you know about shootingthe Z axis creates a different view entirely. I inform those who work for me that monoscopic (2d) images are about the mind, stereoscopic (3d) images are about the brainand the sooner you understand that difference the better off we all are!
