Thank you Bill, I know it's going to keep my mind busy for a while!
If I stumble on anything exciting, I'll pass it on. I know I'll be stumbling for a while.
If you do make any discoveries, please pot them to that article, whether it is just your endeavors, or useful links.
Thanks, and good luck,
For what it will cost you in time and plug-ins to go the Cineform/Premiere route, you'll be better off getting Vegas Pro 10. It already recognizes the MVC files flawlessly and allows you to work with them on a single timeline in total, frame-accurate sync.
I don't like the Vegas interface and am in the midst of remapping the keyboard but the ease of working with the footage more than makes up for the quirky keystrokes.
Hopefully Adobe will get it together to handle this format SOON!!!
I, too, would very much like to see Adobe incorporate support for importing Sony's MVC file format into Premiere Pro. I believe that Adobe listens to its customers. I would encourage all of you who are using Sony's HDR-TD10 to submit a feature request to Adobe to support this file format. You can find the Feature Request form at: https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform&promoid=EWQQL.
I would much rather edit the MVC footage in Premiere Pro than in Sony's Vegas Pro 10e which I am currently now doing. I don't want to go through all the hurdles required to edit this footage in Premiere Pro (demuxing the .mts stream, use of intermediate codecs, etc.). Please Adobe, incorporate support for importing the MVC codec form Sony.
Thanks for the info folks, I have a lot to learn. I would like to clarify a portion of my first post:
"play in 3d with Cyberlink's player with my Nvidia glasses"...
It seems I was duped to thinking that it was real 3d, looks like it's the PowerDVD11 doing a 2d to 3d conversion. It was a bit blurry. Onward.
