3D video data recorded by the AG-3DA1 can be edited easily and at low cost editing system and a computer (Windows PC/Mac) installed with a 3D editor plug-in (third-party software, sold separately)*1 that supports existing AVCHD-compatible video editing software.*2 The use of files allows easy ingestion to a computer, much in the same way as in ordinary 2D image editing. The addition of the 3D plug-in also lets you adjust the 3D images. This plug-in produces a DVI-D video output so that images can be viewed and checked using the BT-3DL2550.
The production of 3D content with higher quality is made possible by converting images from AVCHD to P2HD (AVC-Intra 100, P2 files) with the AJ-HPM200. This enables high-speed ingestion*3 to a source server or 3D video editing/color grading system through an external P2 drive, thus providing a highly efficient, file-based DI environment. The 3D images can be checked by using the BT-3DL2550. Panasonic also plans to release a professional, 3D plasma display, now under development, that will let you view 3D images on its large screen.
*1: Panasonic does not guarantee proper operation of third-party plug-ins. Also, the operating conditions recommended by each plug-in software manufacturer must be satisfied.
*2: The operating conditions recommended by each software manufacturer must be satisfied. *3: The provided P2 driver software must be installed in the computer in order to recognize, copy and transfer P2 files. The driver must also be installed even when using a PC card slot or when handling P2 files stored on an HDD such as P2 Store. The P2 driver supports Windows Vista®, Windows® XP and Mac OS X. For operating conditions and other details, refer to the P2 driver installation manual. The P2 driver and P2 driver installation manual can be downloaded for free.
