The documentary was shot with a stereo dual digital film camera rig, but the processing of the dual stream 4K footage posed a challenge for the post team.
“Our old editing system was unable to handle the dual stream 4K footage in real time and rendering was really time consuming,” said Zhang Qingjie, editor of the documentary. “Many editing packages allow users to edit 3D projects in one eye mode in real time, but this makes checking stereo 3D depth difficult when you try to make sure there are no large depth changes between shots.”
