Take a good look to the left of this text. That is not a joke avatar I assigned to myself! It is the result of Extreme 3D brought on by watching "Comin' at Ya!"... My eyes still have not uncrossed, and that was 2 years ago! But that's ok... I have a smile on my face because I was able to duck below all the projectiles that came at me during the film.

Goodness knows how you would look with VR then!

I chose "normal" 3D.

At the beginning of the 3D craze back in 2010, I loved the stronger 3D with lots of popouts. But soon after that I much preferred a slightly more restrained 3D picture but still with lots of depth.

As with most, strong 3D, otherwise whats the point. And if it's too weak i feel like i'm watching a 2D movie through extra glasses and feel a little silly

Also on your strong list add Fantasic Beasts, i was suprised how strong this was when i watched it at home (only saw it in 2D at the cinema)

Strong every time for me, depth and pop out. Like many have said, what’s the point otherwise?

Used to prefer 'strong,' but most 3D gives me a big headache now. For example, I closed my eyes through much of Ready Player One as they were watering and strained. Played full contact football for over ten years growing up with numerous injuries and I wouldn't be surprised if the vision problems are from it.

Know this deals with movie type but our settings also help determine final visual affect.

My Sony is kept at the maximum+2 while my player is set to normal.

None of my TV settings are changed for 3D. I do increase my darbee from it's usual 55 setting to 75. For 3D this brings in stronger detail and a bit more depth without any harshness or ghosting. 75 is too strong for Blu-ray and cable. 55 is fine for those sources but for 3D it's a bit soft.

I have an active set and keep the 3D brightness level at high. Everything is richer that way and it doesn't offset black levels. And there is no deterioration in terms of ghosting, shimmering or harshness.
