Is the trailer in the mail 3d blu ray disc or on one of the others. If so, which one.

It's a 3D trailer on the 3D disc before Brave starts. It's not the only one, there are other 3D trailers. Monsters Inc 3D. And Planes 3D as well. I might be forgetting something, but I think that was it.

Anyone have a clue as to why "Finding Nemo 3D" is classified as Native 3D while "The Little Mermaid" will be classified as Converted 3D?

Source: Is it Real or Fake 3D? (Hint: Look under Real 3D in 2012 for Nemo & Fake 3D in 2013 for Mermaid.)

Maybe because it was converted or rendered completely using the original caps computer files as opposed to giving it to a conversion company as a complete film, and asking them to convert it from that (ala Shrek done by Legend 3D and Kung Fu Panda).

Just a guess though

Yes, Nemo was a cgi film. All the element exist as 3d digital objects. So the filmmakers (in a nutshell) specify camera angles & framing, define textures & surfaces, and re-render for two views.

Mermaid was a 2d animated feature. Although the "cells" exist in the CAPS system, they are "flat" and new background material & facial/object curves need to be re-photographed or generated/painted for the second view.

CGI vs CAPS system..Good to know.
Thanks for clarifying the differences between the two types of animated features. Very much appreciated!

Looks like the Region A Blu-ray 3D encode of "Finding Nemo 3D" is going to be another winner per the review posted today by Kenneth Brown. 5 out of 5 for both Video & 3D quality!

Quote:
The 1080p/MVC-encoded 3D experience is just as striking, and the film's vast ocean wonderland is a playground of convincing depth and dimensionality. Fish slowly swim right out of the screen, reefs stretch far into the watery distance, aquarium rocks and decorations provide a sense of boxed-in space and suitably cramped scope, sharks and sea turtles float in and out of the foreground, jellyfish clump believably to form a net of deadly obstacles, and the movie looks as if it were designed from the ground-up with a 3D presentation in mind.
Finding Nemo 3D (Ulitmate Collector's Edition)

Very good news! My experience theatrically for the 3D was underwhelming, but this won't be the first time the BD-3D has produced a stellar 3D improvement.

I've heard that Clash of the Titans and the Harry Potter films looked better on BD than in theaters.
But better doesn't necessarily mean good. Despite being improved, Clash and Deathly Hallows pt. 1 still look miserable on Blu-ray 3D.

Have you heard of configuration affecting quality? The same encode can be optimized when authored for whatever the directors intent. Call it goal planning, or maybe the monitor size used for the 3D rendering choices that influence favorable ingredients for the consumer presentation. Movies have variable results. Some 3D movies look better at home than others. It ultimately depends on the choices the director initially makes during production. The review suggests that the 3D is "striking', which is a good sign to me that I probably should see a 3D improvement at home. It has happened before and I'm hoping this is the case!
