I am using Lightroom 3.3
I am trying to output a batch result from a shoot, a batch conversion to black and white and then a batch conversion to Sepia.

I was playing around with 2 possible methods. I was thinking of using either snapshot or virtual copies.
I selected all my images (color) and tried creating a snapshot of all of them using autosync, but that did not work. It only created a snapshot of the first image.

I tried using virtual copies, but then my workspace got cluttered and resulted in too many images.

How do you guys deal with this like in a wedding workflow where you wanted to give the client 3 versions of the images. Color, Sepia and Black and white?

Well, you have a couple choices -- you can create a preset and apply it to selected images, you can process one image and then Sync to the batch of selected images, or you can do like you described and create Virtual Copies so that you have the "original" on hand. It doesn't hurt either way, since the original is always preserved -- if you want to revert to it you can just Reset (or go to the original in the History panel).

The issue I have is how to go back to the original. The history does not sync, where I can revert back all the image. Lets say, 300 images.

In Library, filter by attribute. At the right end of the bar you have filters for Master Photo or Virtual Copy. Make one set of VCs, one for each master and apply the filter so only the VCs are on screen. Select all and apply the B/W preset and export. Then apply the Sepia preset; it will override the B/W. Export again. Switch the filter to Master and export once more.
