Yes, this helps, thank you!

Currently you can have a following workaround:

1) Open 4-some MPO file in a standard Mac Preview app. It will show all 4 embedded images.
2) Export desired left and right images from this MPO as two single PNG files.
3) Import these two PNG files to Stereo Master as left and right images to combine single MPO file.
4) Save MPO file in Stereo Master.

And this will be the result:

Thanks for that. I'm having trouble exporting the individual layers (need to export layers 1 and 3) using Preview, as PNG. If I drag the layers to the desktop, that works fine but they're TIFF by default so won't load into Stereomaster.

So, still no easy solution here.

1) open MPO file in Preview app
2) right click on desired image preview sample -> export as...
3) select desired image format

this is the screenshot on my Mac:

This will be fixed in version 1.1.
