Videowave Trim Didn't Write 720P Side-By-Side File



this file



should be like this one



, only trimmed.

since the original is about 34 minutes, i need to cut it into 3 sections to post on youtube.

i tried to create a new 3d production in videowave, add the file, and use the trim function to select about 12 minutes to output to a side-by-side file.

the output options only allowed dvd-sized video (480 x 2) for a side-by-side.

how do i get the trimmed video file to be the same format as the 3d camera file? (Aiptek I2 3D camera, 720p side-by-side.)

and how do i get rid of the borders?

but is that output 1280 x 720 still, or something else?





(just got through with 1776 production and now have time to revisit this)

(i have video taken with the i2 at http://www.mediafire.com/?59s3y9dynijdt)

(wanted to put all the clips together and make a 3d avchd file but it came out cropped just like the trim)

(so not feeling the love here)

when i did as you did, used "3d file correction" to change the input files to half width L/R, it started working correctly, albeit an extremely large file. (about 30 Gig. for 2hr 41min)

i may be able to burn it to a 50G bluray disk?? for playback??

but my new one did not have a border, like your screen shot.

not in the preview anyway.

can hardly wait to get home and see if it worked.

the only diff. i can see is that you chose H.264/both where i chose "All".


actually, my friend Darrell was the tech. while i was in the play.

he used my i2.

i've not looked to see how well he did framing his shots.

i think he was mostly concerned with getting the whole stage in the frame.

he did say he was going to try to use the zoom to get tighter on the solo.

i have found that the camera does not do very well at large distances, not even with zoom, as it is software not hardware.


all i can say about video card software is that i have the CUDA and Vision settings active.

this means i can use the extra processors of the video card for processing the conversion, and, output 3d to my tv.

do you have videowave using the extra processors on the video card?


do you think it could be the cyberlink bluray/3d drivers that might be having an adverse effect on the rendering process?

(bluray drive came with special PowerDVD that plays bluray 3d)

i guess i could post an image of that install disk for you to test with.





btw, i play George Read, the little golden boy in the front, if you were wondering.

First clip I looked at looked like a 1/2 Width L/R rather than a Side-by-Side L/R...


So that is what I used:

As you can see they appear to work fine that way.


I will have to try one your way to see what it looks like.


Edit: No real difference that way either. Maybe your video card/software???

In fact why don't you review your step by step in detail so we can all be on the same page???





video from our last practice session



open videowave

start new 16:9 project

select files for import

identify as 3d side-by-side LR, all

select export to file

save project

choose avchd 1280 x 720 (24 fp)

side-by-side LR

create file

ouput file is 1280 x 720 but each frame has large borders around it.

also tried your avc 800 x 450 suggestion and got the same result.


no post processing, just input/output.


it seems like the program has put each frame in a box.

see the above output from Larry's gig as an example.

i get the feeling that this program does not resize each L/R frame up to the output size.

instead it crops it into a box.

i tried an old letterbox file once and it came out as a really small box in the middle of the screen.

my tv expands it out to cover the whole screen instead of what videolab does to it.

very disheartening.

You have many options there which you are going to have to try... r/l as well as l/r.


Also make absolutely sure you are using a "pure" source file. If you use one that you output that has those bands in it, they will follow along...



i know for sure that the Aiptek source file is 1280 x 720 L/R and that there are no borders at all. (see darrell's band above)

then i put it in the trimmer and it comes out with huge borders.

can you please tell me how to avoid that?

(i'll try to upload the source file somewhere)

I cannot duplicate this… :huh:


If I add a clip from my Aiptek to VideoWave:

Then choose to Export As, I have all options as long as I choose HD or All…

As it renders, all is as expected:

And when I preview my result, I get HD 3D Side by Side:

Perhaps if you post some screen caps when you go through you Project, we can get a better idea of where things are going amiss ;)


Edit: are you using 1/2 width for the setting??? <_< that would only allow DVD quality...

Explain how you got to where you are at :lol:


When you import it to VW you must identify it correctly, "Side By Side (L/R)"...


When you Export As, you must select the very same output... ;)


Now this is assuming that L/R is the correct format for the Aiptek... And that is the format you wish to export it as :huh:
