    Hi Blucollect,

    I have experience in 3D stereography and making 3D, though with the actual retail buys, I'm not an expert, but would suggest if you need a low cost 3D HDTV, consider ordering on for a 32" or within that small size, where the prices are lower. Vizio 3DTV 32" was in the $400 range last time I checked. Thanks.

    Hello again Zuvouhr, i know you are knowledgable about 3D playback equipment and the 3D area in general. i am looking to hook up Mr Peabody and Sherman 3D to a 3D HDTV later on (and due to the advent of the ultra 4k tv which uses 3D as a secondary feature) and due to the current TV's phasing out and becoming cheaper, where can i find a 3D TV within $400 or less of my 5 class series samsung in the back of my house?

    it's ok, i understand not that many are programmed like Mr peabody and sherman.

    Blu-Ray 2D /Blu-Ray 3D is a lot more complicated to program, the feature is not used that often because of complexities in the authoring process.

    a 3D disc with 3D Film+2D/3D bonus materials that can fully operate without being flagged (exception of 3D feature) is something rare in and of itself. a fact i fully well know.

    I should take advantage of a dreamworks/fox film offering this as they have never done that in their 20 year history as a studio.

    All was fully accessible from the 3D disc that it had (my first for an animated title where it has occurred where no 2D presentation was authored in it), except the 3D feature film. normally i would pick a 3D where it's locked out/flagged and i have to have the equipment to play it.

    Your welcome, but this was not mastered where both are on one side and use display auto detect technology/or a choice of version. (its seperated out as Blu-Ray 3D+Bonus material, Blu-Ray 2D, DVD, voucher for vudu/itunes)

    Mr Peabody and Sherman 3D has a fully accessible menu that can display as either 3D or 2D for the appropriate equipment where all works in 2D the 3D is flagged and greets me with a message as you said.

    I own 3 in my collection currently that do that, 1 that does it automatically (Dredd 3D/2D) and two others that offer me a choice of what to play. This title and life of pi would not count as their films are flagged their bonus material is accessible.

    Dreamworks early ones would do as you say they would, (MVA, HTTYD, Megamind) where they all have display auto detect built in them and would go back to the menu.

    Hello Zivouhr, i now own my first 3D title with 2D playable materials and my first from Dreamworks and Fox with that offered.

    Life of Pi 3D had 2D materials playable from its 3D disc, it says it can play its extras in standard Blu-Ray players (the film would be flagged for obvious reasons) on its own casing.

    I now have Mr Peabody and Sherman 3D, it has a rocky and bullwinkle adventure that is dual 3D/2D playable. my player is a 3D player hooked up to a 2D tv, would i be able to have the short play back on it (does fox flag their 3D's if there is a 3D/2D material on it?) or am i locked out if a 3D HDTV, glasses, and an HDMI 1.4 cable are not present?

    is there a way i can tell the player to play this back as if it were on a 2D TV, or am i locked out and required to finish the job if i am to get it to play?

    Thanks for all the intel Zivouhr. Let me forward to you the same nice compliment you gave me: it's refreshing to know that you, Paul, and some other members are very knowledgeable in our. Usual hobby and love for 3D

    TATHOM was the first 3D blu I felt RIGHT AWAY that I want to sit up close as I could. It was awesome!!! Can't wait for GOTG!!

    Hey Zivouhr!! Question for you. Is it a good general rule to follow that if a 3D blu is full screen to sit as close up to the screen and if the 3D blu is letterbox to sit back further from the screen. I watched Thunder And The House Of Magic and that movie had great pop outs that I instantly knew I wanted to sit closer. Transformers I sat back further and I enjoyed the depth..but sometimes I feel I'm missing out on some of the effectiveness of the 3D. Any info you can offer to me would be greatly apperciated

    I sit about 11' away from a 124.5'' image. But I have been told about 8' is the ideal distance for the size of image I'm viewing ( when the image just passes outside the outer side of the 3D glasses) Is this true??

    as for CGI alone, its just rendering it out again with a 2nd virtual camera thereby creating the stereoscopic presentation.

    for each type of 3D , should i expect for native 3D to have both live action and parallel convergence, or one or the other?

    for direct conversion, i never figured that was the actual process. so am i viewing the archival data, 3D VFX, etc?

    for hybrid conversion 3D, what does and does not come out of the screen? since some elements are filmed 3D CG rendered with a 2nd virtual camera, with live action 2D-3D humans that were done in 2D originally, how does one seperate what is what?
