Default LG's “3D Depth” Setting

LG's "3D Depth" Setting:

Note: There are two 3D Mode features:
1) 3D Depth = Affects Object separation and distance.

2) 3D Viewpoint = Convergence calibration
"Shifting the whole image is what the "3D Viewpoint" calibration control achieves and the results experienced from changing the value of that setting changes placement of the 3D image. The "View" control default setting @ center 0 value of convergence placement is verified at the screen's depth using Spears & Munsil HD Benchmark 3D stereoscopic calibration and evaluation patterns. Center 0 is the accurate setting for the director intended placement of the 3D image."

Not my experience.

LG's "3D Depth" Setting:
Using a below 10 setting (10 is default) decreases depth:
Go to Jungle Book 3D 'Chapter '11' and compare how the background looks to the foreground.

Then change the setting to "14" and check out the remarkable 3D spacing between background and animals frolicking inside the tree's inner and outer branches, the birds pushed-apart, and even the greater distance between Mowgli and other animals. There is no rotoscope compositing artifacts or noticeable algorithm-averaging here that should become apparent with an increase in depth. Each figure is a solid shape entity. The background behind, foreground in front, looking like native-3D, subjects not attached to adjacent pixels, just accurate recognizable figure forms.

I will check again and let you know but looking at transformers a.o.e. the lesser setting looked like more depth to me.

Your first impressions are extremely important. Looking forward to more details. The "3D Depth" settings seem to be 3D feature specific. Disney's "The Nightmare Before Christmas" produces a small boost of depth for me in just a few scene areas on limited subjects with a moderate settings increase. Some scenes exhibit no effect (flat). Yet "The Polar Express" 3D produces an IMAX worthy experience (65MM dual strip 3D in my memory ) with the Blu-ray 3D..

Paul, do you notice that increasing this setting reduces the amount of "pop out" effect as it increases depth?

Both depth and "pop out" where present, increase as objects are noticeably pushed apart.

The LG site states these settings are capable for displaying Native-3D content.

ADJUSTING 3D SETTINGS
Want to fine tune your 3D experience with personalized settings? Check out this video.

Video Link

----------------------------------------

To make sure your settings are saved for native-3D and not 3D conversion, make sure a Blu-ray 3D is playing a 3D feature where 3D mode is automatically activated on screen.
Now press the remote's "settings" button (Pictured below).

Screen Shot 2016-09-14 at 9.16.38 AM copy.jpg

This will access the native 3D Depth calibration settings while native-3D mode is activated.

Press the Settings icon >
then press:
Advanced >
Picture >
3D Settings >
3D Mode >
Auto & Manual:
Manual is chosen by default showing "3D Depth" & "Viewpoint" settings.
"3D Depth" (Default center = 10)

"3D Depth" goes from O to 20 (10 is default). Set "3D Depth" as desired.

Remember "3D mode" has a "reset" button (bottom of the list) that will change all 3D settings back to factory default if desired.

3D enthusiasts, Please try the feature and report back comments.

I'm going to check this next time I watch something...but is this only an LG OLED feature?

I have a less expensive LED set, but I hope this option still exists (maybe due to a update).

Some movies like Amazing Spiderman 3D (first one) really need a boost to be more 3D.

On the other hand, Jurassic Park 3D (first one) seems way too strong on larger sets.

I couldn't even make through my first viewing due to eyestrain and turned it off.

In order to watch that one again, I would probably need to turn the 3D down.

Hi, I have an LG 60 inch 3d 4k telly (2016), and I just tried this on Predator, and it is fantastic!

I cant believe that we can tinker now with native 3d discs, its awesome. Thanks!

I can can confirm this works on my LG 65UH8500 LED set.

Yes, it works on my 2015 8500 LED as well. Very Handy!

LG is really on the forefront of 3D tech, so glad I have one.

Put on the old Jurassic Park and toned down the 3D to reduce eyestrain.

Iwas just thinking, doesnt taking it of Auto on native 3d titles,just makes the 2d-3d conversion algorhythm on the telly work , with what the director intended thrown out?

Or does it keep its original 3d shaping and placement and just amplifies the normal "3D " on the disc?

Does this make sense to anyone?

On the LG, the 3D conversion feature is only available when the display is initially in 2D mode.
The display goes into native-3D mode when a 3D source is present.
Default "3D Mode" is set to "manual" making native-3D adjustment controls available starting in neutral position.
Option to change "3D Mode" from "manual" to "Auto" will keep the native-3D setting ("3D Depth" & "Viewpoint") reset in their default position and the adjustment controls will not be available.

No, I don't think so. Not in my experience. You're still watching the 3D disc.

It's more like changing the volume of one 5.1 channel, if you want the dialog to be louder you just boost that one channel.

I was just playing around with it during the start of the Lon King 3D. And it seems to me the change to manual doesn't kick the automatic algorithm in, it just enhances or decreases the separation as such.

It scores the director intended separation at 10 ,giving you the option of more or less layer separation, and the screen placement at 0, so you can bring it forward or deeper. This is a really cool feature as I have more than a few movies that could use a little separation (Im looking at you, Gullivers Travels & I Robot in particular...)

Anyway, thats my conclusions, anyone else beg to differ or agree?

ps. I own the LG 8500 3d telly 2016 model...which im sure I already mentioned b4, sorry

Exactly; Automatic algorithm function would be initially activated when the display is in 2D mode which is the function of the 3D conversion feature.

Glad to see some discussion in here about the 3D settings. LG indeed makes the best 3D TVs available, and I hope they realize this and continue to support 3D in their future lineups. Honestly I haven't even tried to play with the 3D settings, since I assumed (correctly it seems) that leaving it on default will provide the 3D as intended on the disc. But I"m glad there are options available to tweak the settings.

I leave my settings in Auto but it's interesting playing around with the depth. In the end, I leave it in Auto mode.

Click on picture menu then 3D settings.

3D Depth = Adjust 3D depth between the object and the background.

3D Viewpoint = Make 3D images look closer to or farther away from the user.

Presets
Standard = 10 depth 0 viewpoint
Sports = 15 depth 0 viewpoint
Cinema = 15 depth -3 viewpoint
Extreme = 10 depth +8 viewpoint
