How to convert 3D movies to Kodi with 3D video converter?

Step 1: Add source video

For disc users, click “Load from disc” to insert your Blu-ray/DVD movies to the software while you can simply drag and drop the 3D movies on computer hard drive to the app.

Step 2: Select output format and folder

For outputting 3D SBS MP4 for playing 3D via Kodi on 3D TV, you can choose “MP4 Side-by-Side 3D Video(*.mp4) ” under “3D Video” category. Then turn to “Browse”to decide the output folder.

Tip: The most common Side-by-Side 3D TV format is the Side-by-Side Half where each sub-frame occupies just half the horizontal resolution of a full HD frame, resulting in a 3D image with 960pixels by 1080 lines instead of the 1920×1080 required for full 1080p content. This simplifies the electronics while making it compatible with HDMI 1.3 devices. So click “Settings” to make sure the video size is 1920×1080 for Half SBS.

Step 4; Finish the conversion

Simply click “Convert” on the interface to finish the 3D video conversion for 3D TV. You can locate the generated 3D content in output folder.
