Ripping full HD 3D Blu-ray from my 3D Blu-ray disc?
"Hi, I have a 3dtv and recently purchased my first 3d blu ray. I want to convert the main movie file to a video file that I can play by plugging a USB into my tv. Using dvdfab, I converted it into a SBS avi file. It works fine, the 3d looks good on my panny plasma. However, I can clearly see that the resolution has been cut in half. Seems a bit pointless to me to watch something with an active system that looks like it is coming from a passive system, as the resolution is halved. Is there any way that I can rip the Full HD 3D video file to view on my tv?"
There are many programs on the market enable you to create 3D effect video such as Side-by-Side, Top and Bottom or Anaglyph from Blu-ray disc or Blu-ray ISO image files. However, few has the capability to encode full HD quality 3D video files from Blu-ray disc for playing on 3D players such as Mede8er Multimedia player or Stereoscopic Player, etc.
Fortunately, a free application called MakeMKV can be safely downloaded to you to do the work. Simply insert your 3D Blu-ray disc into the tray, then launch MakeMKV,
on the main interface, click the icon "Blu-ray => HDD", a window will pop out with all the Blu-ray chapters title, audio tracks, subtitles and the MKV 3D video. Check the box before "MVC", choose the output folder for the converted files and then hit the "MakeMKV" button to start 3D Blu-ray to full HD MKV conversion process.
Although the 3D full HD MKV file has better 3D quality effect than half 3D video formats when played on 3D application, however, this is not practicable and desirable for most people, since most people want to get a file that can be played on various 3D devices. Therefore, you still need a MakeMKV alternative such as Pavtube BDMagic (Top 3D Blu-ray Ripper Copier) to help you rip/convert 3D Blu-ray or Blu-ray ISO to different 3D effect video like Side-by-Side, Top and Bottom and Anaglyph AVI, MP4, MOV or MKV format for playing on 3D TV or 3D virtual reality devices.
