Rip 3D Blu-ray to 3D SBS Video for Oculus Rift CV1
Step 1. Run aPubsoft Blu-ray Ripper as the best 3D Blu-ray to CV1 Converter on your Windows PC (Mac version). Click the icon like a disc to load source movie from Blu-ray disc or a folder. It will automatically detect the main title to convert.
Step 2. Click “Profile” bar on the interface then navigate to “3D Video” category, and choose “MP4 Side-by-Side 3D Video (*.mp4)” as output format for CV1.
Step 3. The Oculus Rift CV1 claimed officially the specs of CV1 is 1200×1080 (per eye) but not by that much, at 1080×1200 per eye (to my best knowledge). With the DK2, the effective display resolution for watching movies on the biggest screen size that’s still comfortable is not quite 480p. So for high fidelity, you can downsize it to 960×1080 per eye or other lower resolution. You can adjust the size in “Settings” in Pavtube ByteCopy and different bitrate, size leads different 3D effect in different movies. You also can adjust 3D depth in “Settings”. Try different 3D depth, you can get different 3D effect on CV1.
Step 4. Finally, click “Convert” button to rip 3D Blu-ray to 3D SBS MP4 video for Oculus Rift CV1 on Windows 10/8/7/XP with original quality preserving and perfectly 3D effect.
