Default 3D upconvert '?'

Like with DVD to HD Upconverts on Blu-Ray Players, will a 3D-BD Player (in my case PS3) upconvert 2D BDs to 3D(I suppose it would be more simulated). It'd be interesting to see RE1-3 in 3d along with afterlife.

The real time conversions are horrible. They really add some minor depth in some very limited circumstances. Otherwise they just remove some detail and crop the image abit.

Use it as much as you want, i've just seen some people think it was going to work miracles, which it simply doesn't.

2D to 3D conversion (simulated 3D) on my Bravia KDL-40HX800 is O.K. on live sports (football, basketball, hockey) but not worth it on any other 2D content.

The PS3 is not programmed to upconvert 2D to 3D for Blu-ray or DVD.

As far as I know it's the TV that converts 2D to 3D not the blu-ray players. Any computer generated movie looks pretty good upconverted to 3D. I've seen The Incredibles, Toy Story and Astro Boy and I liked the way they looked.

But compare it to the actuall 3d presentations of those films and it looks horrible.

Panasonic, Samsung and Sony have all annouced new models of Blu-ray players that include 2D to 3D conversion. These should be available sometime this spring.

PS3 can't do 2D to 3D conversion, but some 3DTV can.

i just purchased the Sony BDP-S780
It does "2d-to-3D conversion"

All it does is push the entire image backwards into the screen, and curve the outside edges. This gives you the effect of seeing the movie on a giant curved screen. It's a nice idea, but it's hardly "3D". I'm much happier with the video adjustments you can make in player...for example they have a setting called "texture remaster" where you can control the level of DNR (for you grain haters) or where you can significantly reduce noise on DVD upscaling. It also is the only player I'm aware of that allows 2D to 3D "conversion" of DVD's and internet video (such as Netflix.)
3D TV: Panasonic TC-P58VT25 | RECEIVER: Onkyo TX-SR708 Network 3D Receiver | BLU-RAY: Sony BDP-S780 w 2D to 3D conversion + 120 GB PS3 SLIM w/500GB Hard Drive Mod | DirecTV HD HR-24 3D Receiver | Mac Mini

We have a 3D Samsung (2012) and believe that it can convert 2d-3d. Is this the same feature that is found on some BluRay disc players? Therefore, is it completely necessary to look for that feature in a 3d Blu-Ray player? The model is the 7100 series.

Thanks,
Mike

It's never going to be the same no matter what you have,some may be better than other's at converting but at the end of the day,that is all you are doing,converting something rather than viewing something that is meant to be seen that way.
Film=Priority,Packaging=Not really bothered.

I spent a lot of money on booze,bird's and fast cars.
The rest I just squandered...............George Best.
