Hello Rocky:

There are various posts out there dealing with depth settings and I was just wanting to confirm from Paul if he still favors the 20 and-5 settings, and if he experiences any shrinking of the sides as a result of using these settings for 3d.

When 3D is set to "Manual Mode", 3D Depth @ 20 and 3D Viewpoint @ -5 produces extreme changes in the pixel mapping structure of each image which will combine together as one stereo image. Shrinking and expanding of the sides compensates for the image placement in the stereo structure.

I then set 3D to "Auto Mode" with the manual settings still set at the extreme values. And I find this effective for both my displays!

Why? Because despite the fact that some enthusiasts feel I am experiencing only a 3D placebo effect, I have gone through a multitude of 3D titles using the time-codes with Manual settings at default and at extreme, while the displays are in "Auto Mode".
Visual highlights of ground surfaces look flatter, using my memory recognition as my reference, as dry land and/or sea protrudes back in the image Z-plane, plus I also experience foreground foliage intensified-in-placement. Props are also used as gauges for the pertinent frame-of-reference.


Just asking you to try it both ways if you have the opportunity.
After all, if you're one who thinks 3D intensification is a placebo effect, leaving the settings in "Auto Mode" will nullify the manual 3D setting values anyway!

Default Thank you Paul

I now consider the matter settled. And I do agree for what it is worth.

I can tell a very big difference when using your settings, but I just wanted to make sure for future reference, for others, that I wasn't misstating your position.

Always a pleasure; i have used your name in vain in the lg owners thread I created yesterday as you have been so instrumental in my viewing of 3d on my OLEDs. I hope you don't mind.

So do you guys go back to selecting Auto once you manually switch to 20/-5?

You see, I was under the impression that we would switch to Manual 3D, set things at 20/-5 and leave it there. Now I understand that there was an extra step, so once we have selected 20/-5 we switch back to Auto

What do you guys do for color in 3D? It seems to me like colors look flat in 3D picture mode

My wife and I love the 77. I keep the 65 in my Man Cave. Hope these LGs last many years because no TV manufacturer has included the technology in TVs in the foreseeable future. LG's 3d technology may be TOO good and frightened Hollywood. Might it keep people out of theaters ???? Nip it in the bud before prices got lower and everyone could afford it.

I feel the same way. I bought a 77, a 65g and a 65c. Why would LG stop making something they had perfected and no one else had and that had been the true holy grail of tv since the very beginning? I think one day we will know, and we may well be very surprised, but your conclusions are certainly good answers.

I have never been able to find out how many 77s LG sold, but I have only come across 7 people, including myself, who have talked about owning one; 4 here on bluray.com and the avs forum, and 3 reviews on Amazon by persons saying they bought a 77.

LONG LIVE THE 77!
