Stereoscopy is a technique for creating or enhancing the illusion of depth in an image by presenting two offset images separately to the left and right eye of the viewer. Both of these 2-D offset images are then combined in the brain to give the perception of 3-D depth.
4k Left and Right:
4096x2304 29.97fps progressive. This is the most flexible of the stereoscopic formats. The high resolution enables you to adjust the parallax and crop the video to best match your project.
1920x1080 29.97fps progressive. The anaglyph image shows both right and left images superimposed for previewing with 3D glasses (red/blue or red/cyan).
HD Left and Right:
1920x1080 29.97fps progressive. Two separate HD files offering some parallax flexibility. The files can either be combined into an anaglyph or linked for playback.
HD Stereo Pair:
1920x1080 29.97fps progressive. Left and Right images are side by side and squeezed into one HD image.
All stereoscopic 3D clips are encoded QuickTime PhotoJPEG at a 98% quality setting unless they contain a matte and then they are QuickTime Animation codec.
