MediaIn node does not pass through Stereoscopic 3D

Fusion has some of the best and most affordable stereoscopic cleanup tools available. Now combined in 15 as an editorial / vfx / color package it seems like it would great tool for doing online and stereo cleanup.

Unfortunately it seems the MediaIn & MediaOut nodes do not expose left and right outputs from a stereoscopic clip. This means clips have to be manually brought in and frame matched, then converted to side by side or under/over. This combined output of the comp would not longer be a native stereoscopic clip, and then lose the option of using the stereoscopic tools in the Color tab and export.

Seems odd that Fusion, which before BMD's purchase was the lead stereoscopic conversion and vfx package, would be linked with DaVinci Resolve, which also has a stereoscopic pipeline, but have it fundamentally broken with-in the software.

While this may not be relevant anymore, save for IMAX 3D productions that are still being shot native, this also breaks the pipeline for stereoscopic 3D footage, which makes Fusion's VR toolset also broken when working with 3D-360 or 3D-180 footage.

Seems like an important thing to fix before the final release.

Not that there is no interest, but based on the feedback here you can see its not a prime issue so its further down the list to review.
