    Hello all,

    I have a 3D blu ray .iso. I want to convert the main (3D) movie to a SBS 3D .mkv.

    I was going to add it to mkvmerge and convert it that way, however in the STREAM folder of the mounted .iso are hundreds of .m2ts files. I don't know which ones to add as I don't know which ones are the main movie and in what order.

    EXAMPLE



    I also tried adding the mounted .iso to MakeMKV to see if that would make a difference, but first got this error message:



    When I click YES, it asks me to pay for something or other. And when I click NO, this happens (see bottom left):



    So can anyone help me convert this to an SBS 3D .mkv without loss of quality please?

    Thank you in advance.

    Go here and grab the "temporary beta key" for MakeMKV. You'll need to keep that up-to-date if you want to use the Blu-Ray-related features of MakeMKV while it's still in beta.

    Thank you very much for this.

    So having entered the temporary beta key, I am now able to open the .iso in MakeMKV.

    I only want the movie in 3D and the audio in DTS-HD, so I have selected the following settings:



    Everything seems to work, however when I play the file, it is 2D not 3D.

    Is there something else I need to do (or a setting I need to change) to make the output .mkv to be 3D not 2D?

    Thanks again.

    The .mkv is on my server and I am playing it through XBMC on another Windows PC connected to my TV.

    I have other 3D .mkv's that I also have on my server and play on XBMC and they play correctly in 3D. However I didn't make these from an .iso, I downloaded these as HSBS or SBS.

    When I convert this .iso in MakeMKV, it doesn't give me the option to choose HSBS or SBS. So I'm not sure how to make it output in 3D.

    Any ideas?

    As far as I'm aware, no software on earth will play 3D MVC properly. You could try converting them to another format, or get a hardware player.

    Thanks.

    http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=155246 sounds like it might help, never tried it myself.

    Google is your friend!

    -Edit- Is Selur still on the forum? I really should pay more attention to names...

  10. How about trying BDMagic? I've ripped several blu-rays using its 3D MKV preset, so far so good No need to set any parameters manually (I'm a newbie to computer..). Anyway I always got good 3D videos to play :P

    You mean, other than Stereoscopic Player? possibly nVidia 3D Vision player (based on SP)? possibly also potplayer or cyberlink powerdvd...

    That was back in May, and yes I knew about stereoscopic back then, people were complaining about it on the MakeMKV forum.

    Peter Wimmer is pretty committed to improving the app. Looks like he added/fixed playback of MVC in June immediately after that, and has since done at least another fix specifically for MKV.
