Hi wildbill,

Was experimenting further with my star wars DVD because I felt maybe the same settings for high resolution Blu-ray would not be right for lower resolution DVD, even though it was being up converted. My hunch was right.

Kept the player's simulation setting at high but left the TV depth at zero rather than -2 like for Blu-ray. This eliminated most all the ghosting issues and reduced the softness of the picture a little bit as well. As far as more depth, there was a bit more too but not enough to write home about.

This is where the advantage of having the darbee really paid off. For Blu-ray I was keeping it in the normal high definition mode. But there is also a mode for lower resolution sources called 3D pop out. I had tried this before for DVD and my own dvd-r recordings and the result was too much harshness and some artifacts so I use it only for VHS (many silent movies are prerecorded and not yet on disc).

Tried it again and this time it worked wonders! Sharper picture with more detail and thus increased depth. Definitely better than last night.

So you might want to try different settings for your DVDs, even without the darbee. But the darbee's lower resolution feature helped improve the overall quality and simulated effect for the star wars DVD. Saw the improvement eith scenes watched last night compared to how they looked today.

I can see a darbee in my future. I have a lot of non blu ray stuff I want to watch in 3d as well. Thank you. Where do you recommend I buy from? Bill

Hi wildbill,

This is the link from darbeevision listing the retailers where you can find one.

http://www.darbeevision.com/products/dvp5000s

Suggest you order one fast since they're becoming scarce.

As said, it will improve the quality of all your video sources, cable, Blu-ray, DVD, VHS and gaming. And doing so, it automatically increases the depth on 3d due to the added detail. If you want, send me a private message and I can let you know more how I use mine.

2D to 3D is worst then real 3D content.

No argument. But converting to 3D is nicer than 2D.

Hi BLMN,

But your 3D collection is not 4K. Does the set upgrade everything to 4K?

Yes Joe, the TV upscales 3D1080p to 4K and it looks great.

Hi blmn,

Then understand why you might not need the darbee.

I know I'm very late to this party, but I'm still looking for an affordable solution (player, separate device) to be able to watch once in a while my 2D Blu-rays converted to 3D and would be grateful for recommendations.

At the occasion, unless it's already an old story, I'd like to encourage everyone interested in 3D to try the most inexpensive, free 2D > 3D conversion which you'll be able to use right after reading this post.

Unfortunately, I do not know the scientific details but somewhere in the course of evolution caveman lost one eye but still needed to hunt and gather food for family and tribe. Somewhere in our brains is a failsafe switch for this unlikely event which creates 3D depth from single-eye vision, provided there is spatial information enabling our brain to create a 3D image from it.

As for myself I have noticed repeatedly and recently that if the 2D program content includes horizontally moving objects (ideally moving into opposite directions) our brain will create a 3D image from this information watched with one-eye only!



Recently watched The Matrix again and in particular the scene illustrated above with one eye only, the 3D was quite simply awesome, the fragments are really flying at you!
Needless to say that the Matrix Trilogy opening credits also provide a very cool looking 3D effect, as do similiar scenes in these films and in many others.

Unfortunately, you'll only get 3D when there is movement in the image, once the image becomes static, the 3D effect is gone.



So if your friends think 3D glasses look stupid, maybe this is a solution more to their liking.
