This article walks you through the whole process of converting 3D MTS footages to MOV Side-by-Side 3D Video with best 3D effects on 3D TV on Mac. Don’t forget your 3D glasses.
3D is a fantastic technology that was once only reserved for ultra exclusive film studios. Now, many users can purchase stereoscopic 3D cameras like Sony Handycam 3D at decent prices. However, it receives cheers and boos. The only problem is that many users are facing the problem while playing Sony Handycam 3D MTS on 3D TV. What’s the reason and is there any way to view 3D MTS videos from Sony Handycam on a 3D TV with ease?

First of all, let’s look at a case:
“I’ve ordered a brand new Sony HDR-TD 10 3D-Camcorder. I just wonder how to watch my Sony 3D MTS recordings on my Samsung 3D Smart TV with 3D effect. I did a lot of tests with some freeware, but in the final movie clip 3D images are not aligned perfectly, as if they were slightly shifted.”
With all of the surrounding of 3D technology and production in the last few years, more and more TVs can support stereoscopic 3D. Samsung 3D Smart TV, Sony 3D LED TV, LG 3D TV and so on are impossible to play Sony Handycam 3D MTS files directly because of the format limitation.
The most effective way to transcode and play 3D MTS footages on 3D TV, a 3D MTS converter is a must. Here I highly recommend Pavtube 3D MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac I have used. It works perfectly for converting 3D MTS files to a proper format for easy playback on 3D TV keeping original 3D effects.
Sony 3D MTS/M2TS converter is reasonably priced and easy to use. The other similar products may convert the audio a few frames behind the video no matter what settings you use, but this Sony 3D MTS converter works excellent and converts seamlessly.
How to convert 3D MTS to SBS 3D MOV/MKV/MP4/AVI for smooth playback on 3D TV with 3D effects?
