Default What's the best picture settings for 3D?

I have a Panasonic 3D player. It's set to Cinema for picture. But is that the best setting for 3D? Or would Vivid look better? What does everyone prefer?

I also must ask about the speaker setting. I don't really understand the MS and the DBs and the 1-5/6 or more. What's best to set it to?

I'd think the settings are more important for the TV. I'd go over to AVS Forum and see what the most common settings are. They may also have listed player settings.

I usually go there for recommendations when I calibrate new TVs. I usually drift a bit on some on some of them, but they are always a good starting point.

Please adjust
Motion Blur
Brightness
Ghosting/Crosstalk

1. Brightness: The reduction in brightness is the result of having to view 3D images through either Active Shutter or Passive Polarized 3D Glasses. This can reduce the brightness of the incoming images up to 50%.

2. Ghosting/Crosstalk: This occurs when the left and right eye images are not synched exactly with the LCD shutters or polarized filters in 3D glasses. What happens is that an object(s) in an image appears to have a duplicate image that looks like a halo or ghost around the actual object.

3. Motion Blur: Another problem is that when objects move fast across the screen, the objects may seem blurry or stutter more than they might do on 2D source material.

There is probably no one setting that will work for everyone as everybody's room is different.
