New Plugin Brings Stereoscopic 3D Editing to Final Cut Pro X

Thanks to Dashwood Cinema Solutions' $99 plugin Stereo 3D Toolbox LE, Final Cut Pro X can now handle stereoscopic 3D footage. Just don't try to bring in that old FCP7 timeline (sorry, couldn't help myself). The plugin works in Final Cut Pro X, Apple Motion, and Adobe After Effects, and is said to work fine in OS X Lion. Here's a tutorial of how to use the plugin (note: this won't be of interest to you unless you're thinking about, or are already, working with 3D):

Some of the 3D modes include:

Stereo3D Toolbox LE can accept discreet left and right video clips, line-by-line interlaced 3D clips, or side-by-side clips (squeezed or unsqueezed.) Stereo3D Toolbox LE also supports the output of popular stereoscopic delivery formats like side-by-side, line-by-line interlaced (a.k.a. field-sequential) and red/cyan anaglyph.

Actually works pretty well! And I dig the output option that allows me to use my iPod & Hasbro MY3D.
Too bad it won't work in Premiere, but the new FCP is...OK. (works in FCP7 too!) And it's free if you bought an earlier version!

Hi, which method to import MTS files from the camera 3D Sony HXR-NX3D1? I bought the plugin Dashwood Stereo 3D Toolbox LE, but the imported files do not break down into 2 separate files as in your demo. I tried to convert the files MTS 3D to ProRes 422, 1080 50i, but again, I have only one file is imported, not the 2 files right and left.
Thank you for your help.
