Problems to create 3D SBS with Handbrake
“I’ve seen several people say you can rip 3D Blu-rays with MakeMKV and encode them with Handbrake to watch on the GearVR in 3D. I can get the MKV made (checking the box for the 3D stream) but I can’t figure out how to get a 3D format out of Handbrake when converting it. I put it in the 3D folder under my videos and it just plays half the screen on my left eye and half on my right eye. Anyway to do this with these programs? Need some help. Thanks.”
