This tutorial guides you through how to rip and convert 3D Blu-ray discs to 3D MP4 videos with Side-by-Side format.
I’m looking for a 3D Blu-ray disc software ripper which can help me convert 3D Blu-ray to SBS MP4 3D video. Google turns up several results. Now I will share my test results with all of you who wanna rip 3D Blu-ray movies to 3D MP4 video for playback on 3D TV or any other 3D supported media devices.
In the first try, I used MakeMKV software. I downloaded the latest version and I use it for ripping a few 3D Blu-ray discs! I followed the steps seen in many tutorials over the internet, and I extracted the Mpeg4 MVC 3D Extension too (I checked that box too) along with the Mpeg4 base file. I verified the extracted "3D" file with Media Info and it says "Format profile : Stereo High@L4.1 / High@L4.1" and "MultiView_Count : 2", so...it should be a correct 3D MKV file, right?!
Unfortunately for me, all I can see is just a 2D image and never can I get a 3D image, even if the file is a ...3D video ripped by MakeMKV! So, I had to seek for another tool.
In the second try, I used Brorsoft Blu-ray Ripper. Great performance and result! With it, I can effortlessly rip 3D Blu-ray to Side-by-side 3D MP4 easily and quickly. Excellent video quality and fast conversion speed. I think that’s reason why this ripping software surpasses other similar apps in the market. Plus, with it I can freely select my desired subtitles or show the forced subtitles only as I need.
Moreover, besides SBS 3D MP4, I found this 3D Blu-ray ripper can also rip any (2D/3D) Blu-ray to MKV Side-by-Side 3D Video, MOV Side-by-Side 3D Video, MKV Anaglyph 3D Video, MP4 Anaglyph 3D Video, MOV Anaglyph 3D Video, MKV Top- Bottom 3D Video, MP4 Top- Bottom 3D Video, MOV Top- Bottom 3D Video to meet your different needs. For Mac(including 10.11 El Capitan) users, it has an equivalent version Mac Blu-ray ripping software.
