File ingested media must be named appropriately with left eye and right eye and S3D Channel and S3D group Name information and S3D Inversion prior to transcoding
In Master Clip Bin set up a bin setting that has all the S3D settings turned on
Text View

Bin>Choose Columns

Choose All/None so that "None" settings are selected

Next choose all the S3D settings available.


Optional - You may also choose other columns that you want to add.

Save as a bin setting to save time to use throughout your project


Click on the bin settings and select "Save As"

Save Bin setting as 3D Bin Settings or whatever you choose



Click OK

Now you can select the 3D settings on any bin

Next set the "S3D channel " to left eye or right eye depending on the clip

Make sure the root name of the clips is the same.
Followed by -L or –R or
Left or Right

Select all the clips in the Master Clips bin and choose to Populate S3D Group Name automatically – this only works if you have left, right after the same clip root name.

If you get this error then you names are not correct on the master clips. Double check the root names match

And then you might have to do this step matching pairs at a time. Ex: only do Scene 25B Take 5 Left and Right – Then S3d names should populate.

Make sure the .S3D Group names are all populated

The Next step is to Consolidate and or Transcode your AMA footage

Select all your clips in the bin to Consolidate

Go to >Clip
>Consolidate/Transcode

Choose to "Consolidate"



Pick a drive to save the files to under the
"Video/Data" setting

Choose the "Skip media already on the target drive"

Click "Consolidate" to start processing of .mxf rewrap

After the process is complete, new master clips are created in the bin that point to the "Consolidated" media.
At this point, you can take your original media offline by unmounting the AMA folder containing the source media. Select File > Unmount.

Choose to Relink Master Clips to media on the target drive

AutoSync your "Leading Eye or Left Eye" ONLY with the double system workflow

Click Here to access the workflow for how to AutoSync

Sync only the Left Eye of all the clips and the corresponding audio

Both clips need to be in the same bin and select both video and audio clips and choose > Bin > AutoSync

In our example the timecode matches on both video and audio however ordinarily you will use in points

Resulting will be a synced clip like this

Change the S3D channel so that we will use the left eye that was just synced with the audio

Next change the group name to the same group name of the "Right" eye.

Right click on the S3D group name and copy it

Paste the name in the autosynced subclips S3D group name so both the newly created "Left" eye synced with audio has the same group name as the "Right" eye

Change the "S3D Inversion" Vertical and Horizontal if you shot with a Stereoscopic Rig

Left change to Horizontal/Vertical

Right change to Vertical

Select the autosynced "Left" eye and the matching "Right" eye

Right click on selected master clips in the bin and choose to "create stereoscopic clips"

Chose a Bin to save the stereoscopic clips






Match all the settings in this frame grab


Name new clips using S3D Clip Name

Leading Eye is Left and sync clips using Source Timecode

Create audio from default TC Contributor
Click OK


That is it a stereoscopic clip or clips are made continue to use these clips as you would use any master clip in AVID.
