USA 3D better at home

Is it just me or does 3D look much better on home systems...?

Just watched the Hobbit in 3D at the theater and I seem to get better depth on my home system....

You must have the motion interpolation feature turned on on your tv then, cause films don't look like that on my tv. Watching the Hobbit in 48 fps looked horrible IMHO.
Setup:
Panasonic th-p65vt60a tv, Sony str-da5300es avr/pre-amp, Emotiva xpa-2 & xpa-5 amps, Dali Concept: 10 (fronts) 2 (rears) & centre speakers, 2x SVS pb13-ultra subwoofers, Oppo bdp-105 blu-ray player (region free), Onkyo c-s5vl sacd player, Panasonic dmr-bwt835 1tb hdd/blu-ray recorder, Xbox One & 360 250gb s, PS4 & PS3 60gb, Cyron lighting & htw1000 controller, Samsung s2 1tb hdd, SurgeX sx1210rli x3, Logitech Harmony 1100i remote

Um, this is a thread about 3D quality compared to cinema 3D quality. The extra brightness and resolution made a big difference with the 3D in Hobbit 48p 3D. The 3D looked the same. Besides my TV doesn't have motion interp and I liked the 48p look.

Um, how did you get the impression from my previous post that I somehow wasn't referring to 3d? At the cinema I went to, The Hobbit was close to the same level brightness as when watching 3d at home, actually to be honest it was a little lower. However I fail to see where brightness comes into it, as in your comment you only made mention of the 48 fps, not brightness or resolution, and how your setup looks like that at home. I didn't say anything about you liking the high frame rate in the Hobbit, I just stated my opinion that I didn't like it, and the fact that when watching 3d movies at home on my tv the motion of 2d and 3d films doesn't look how The Hobbit did in 48 fps.

Not always. The only reason I said that was because we had a thread Just like this one on the front page still. It is always newbies that don't take the time to look for existing threads.

There are a bunch factors that come into play and isn't as simple as home vs theatre. There's:
Active vs Passive
Brightness
Equipment Used
Resolution
Viewing Distance
Viewing Angle



Actually I'm interested in knowing how much the viewing angle comes into play in terms of 3D. Cos the image in my H.T is slightly above eye level (especially for 2.39:1 movies).

Depth depends on parallax/image spearation. This varies from movie to movie. THe only way you can compare them is by watching The Hobbit at home.

Hey, I am new here as well and it's best just to ignore the comments that don't benefit you. This is what I do in other forums instead of reacting but I agree with you that 3D is a lot better at home. I have a lot of 3d movies myself and just can't get over how amazing the picture is with 3D technology.
Love 3D technology and am addicted to it.

Watched the BCS game in 3D last night and it was really amazing. The depth that 3D adds to sports in incredible. It's not so much for the shock effect that that stuff it Popping out at you but more for the depth between players, lines, crowd, and so on. It was really something to see.

I am also on the same idea of 3D is great for the depth and really allows the viewer to be immersed into the movie more visually. I dont mind the popping out effects but is not a deal breaker for me. I am here in Canada and don't get much 3d content with Bell Satellite TV. Really hoping for more sports content in 3d here in Canada.

Although I watched a Toronto Maple Leafs game in 3d, it was not as immersive as a 3d movie.

IMO, watching 3d movies with HD sound is better than going to the movie theaters. I am addicted to the 3D picture and just amazed by the technology.
Love 3D technology and am addicted to it.
