HI-DEF 3D

by stewart norrie / May 24, 2006 7:01 AM PDT

WHY NOT,I have seen all the 3-d movies with the cheap cardboard glasses and the effect was awsome. Many years ago one of my local stations broadcast Creature From the black Lagoon 7-11 gave away the glasses and even with the anolog t.v. I had at the time the 3-d effect was good. So with a hi-def t.v. 3-d should be mindblowing, And yes I contacted many stations like cnet etc etc and I guess they feel just like you nice folks here that Iam an just an old nut case HAVE A NICE DAY ALL stewart

DAN COULD YOU NOT TRANSFER ?

These 3-D movies to hi-def 1080I . I also saw Hauntrd house in Vegas I-max 3D So my question is if the movies are already done in 3-D why would it be that expensive to transfer them to 1080I hi-def. By the way Mars Mission on Discovery channel are showing some shots in 3-D I picked up 4 free pairs at the Discovery store here in the bay area. and the 3-D effect was beautiful. I still think it would be a cool idea. I have seen most 35m.m. films at the theater in 3-D and I really enjoyed the effect and with a good hi-def t.v. you have a picture that is as good as film so it should really look awsome. in closing I know some of you like to put me down and think Iam stuped but I at least come up with ideas. and dreams. Dan is one of the pros here and I believe he knows where Iam coming from TOSHIBA RULES ha ha ha

It's a matter of cost vs. return
by Dan Filice / May 25, 2006 9:54 AM PDT

Yes, any movie on film can easily be transferred to 1080 HD if you can get to the original film material. Up-Rezing from a video master isn't the best idea. Anyways, if a studio spends $10,000 on re-transferring a film negative (yes, it's easy to spen that and more on a good film transfer), and if they spend even more doing a 3-D film, then they will want to get a return on their money. The number of people interested in 3-D isn't enough to justify the costs. I love 3-D, but as an occassionally entertainin medium. I went to the 3-D film festival a few years ago in Hollywood where they showed dozens of films that were shot in 3-D. A lot of people attended, but in the scope of things, you and I may be the exception to the rule. Personally I really enjoyed Vincent Price in "House of Wax" and "Thirteen Ghosts" and "Creature from the Black Lagoon." Stewart, I'm saying too much. I think the men in white coats are coming for me. Gotta go!

Dear "Nut Case"...
by Dan Filice / May 25, 2006 2:44 AM PDT
In reply to: HI-DEF 3D

"Nut Case"...That's very funny Stewart Happy The primary reason that 3-D isn't done is because of the cost and the limited audience and the hardware (glasses) needed to make 3-D work. Whether the glasses are the old Blue-Red or the gray polarized style, glasses are glasses and most people don't want to use them to make 3-D work. Also, to make 3-D really work, the footage needs to be shot with multiple cameras (two), which would drive production costs through the roof. Films not originally shot for 3-D can be digitally process to create 3-D, but again, the costs in post-production to do this are stiff. Doing 3-D is too big of a pain to do for a very limited audience. At the recent NAB (Nat' Assoc of Broadcasters) show in Vegas last month, I saw 3-D done in High-Def. Wow, it was stunning! NHK (in Japan) shot footage for the demo. Again, multiple cameras were used. The demo and this 3-D process from NHK in general is aimed at theme parks so they can do simulation shows like "Terminator 3-D", "A Bug's Life 3-D", etc.
