Great idea for a thread Ed (ooh, a rhyme!)

Hadn't realized that Green Lantern has been shot in 3D!.. Excellent!

Sucker Punch can be removed however. Snyder is a fan of 3D, but he didn't want to convert Sucker Punch at the last minute, ala Clash Of the Titans. Still, at least it is being released in IMAX!

I agree, good idea. This reminds me of the following site that I had come across that was also attempting to put together a "Native 3D" vs "Conversion 3D" list.

Great idea for a thread and thanks for getting the list started. There are some movies there that I am pleasantly surprised were filmed in 3D and others that I'm surprised weren't.

Not a bad idea (if one recognizes the giant caveat that certain films "filmed" in 3D will be bad, and others that use "fake" 3D post processing might be fine).

What are you going to do about all-CGI works? I can't imagine that anyone from a CGI film is going to take 2D elements and post-process it (ie., they'll rerender for 3D space), so it's probably moot, but thought I'd throw it out there...

Anyhoo, you've left off "Cave of Forgotten Dreams", filmed in 3D (and promising to be a hell of a doc)

Indeed!

At least portions of the movie are being shot with the PACE Fusion system!

Ah, but Toy Story and Toy Story 2 were rerendered for 3D as limited rereleases just last year. And I believe that Battle for Terra was originally intended to be a 2D release, but was rerendered prior to its actual theatrical run.

I had been thinking about posting a thread like this, but I just ended up using this Wikipedia entry as a reference:

And others dream in color.

For computer animated movies the whole debate on Native 3D shooting versus Conversion is a moot debate. Computer animation is native 3D by nature and exists in 3D in the movies native computer files and for 3D is simply re-rendered from the original digital files. Dreamworks liked to make a big deal about Monsters vs Aliens being the first animated movie originally rendered in 3D initially rather then re-rendered for 3D later but in practice it makes no difference. So distinguishing animated movies as "filmed in 3D" is kind of a pointless excersise.

Live action 3D is different. Since a 2D shot live action movie has no digital files and thus it must add digital shadding on top of the live action footage. Though not much different in principle then any other post-production digital manipulation that 2D movies get all the time now a days it still is creating something that doesn't exist in the original shooting. It adds layers of depth by bringing different objects in the frame and manipulating them forward. Problem is that often times too few layers are added for time and money constraits which gives the movie a "Cardboard cutout" effect where unconverted objects look unnaturally flat next to more well converted objects. 3D cameras have unlimited depth as does the human eye. Thats why shooting with 3D cameras is a much safer but and in general produces superior quality results.

I was going to leave the animated movies out of the list, but figured someone would just add them anyways.

Of course, the real benefit of having a sticky thread that's supposed to be a comprehensive list of films shot natively in 3D vs being converted in post-production is not just to give a heads-up to users on whether they should fork over their 3D-surcharge at the box office for upcoming movies, but to provide information on past movies that may be issued as 3D Blu-ray Discs.

For instance, I've heard good things about the 3D-conversion of The Nightmare Before Christmas, but a real stickler might adamantly say that they'll never see a non-native 3D movie in theaters, or purchase the BD, precisely because it was originally shot flat.

Im dissipointed at Synder's decision but I respect it. If a proper 3D conversion couldn't be done in time there were really only 2 options. Delay the movie or release in 2D. Since Synder is doing 2 movies at once it seemed inevidible that something had to give. I would have prefered the former but Id rather it lack 3D then be another Clash of the Titans mess.

Im glad Synder's Legend of the Guardians is still 3D and I hope Synder natively shoots in 3D his next live action project.

Agreed. I didn't think much of the decision not to convert at first, but when I saw the comic-con trailer, I was disappointed that the movie wasn't planned with 3D in mind from the very start!

Still, as you say, "LOTG" looks to be a three dimensional stunner! I cannot wait to see it!
