Default predator 3d

Looks like predator will be released in 3d in similar head packaging to Irobot

This is a bit shocking, honestly. I would've expected Predators to get a 3D conversion before the original movie. Either way, I hope it turns out well. I'm betting the head will look something like this, if not almost exact:

Considering the lack luster results with I Robot, don't hold your breath.

I'm not with that example,lol. Your right. There have been some conversions that have resulted with impressive results: The Avengers, Titanic, Alice In Wonderland, Monsters Inc, Beauty and The Beast, and (imo) Top Gun

If the 3d disc plays back in 2d as well, where it's more like the 2008 blu-ray release except with an AVC transfer, and not the extremely dnr'd 2010 Ulitmate Hunter Edition, then count me in.

What a rotoscope nightmare .

You couldn't pay me enough to roto a jungle, so many different branches and vines and yeeeesh.

I'll pay you 20.00 though to watch

Google Translate:
Quote:
In the jungle lands spacecraft, on whose board is perfectly equipped alien nimrod. Fair game for him to become not only predators inhabiting the jungle, but also people.

This is the prologue of the famous film, which is a popular combination genre action stories about U.S. commandos, horror and SF. Section under the guidance of an experienced Major Dutche Schaefer is planted in hostile territory where the middle of the jungle rescue several American soldiers from captivity guerrillas. After a successful event but American soldiers must fight with tajemnějším and far more dangerous enemy.

Jungle varies trap from which there is no escape and American heroes for the first time in my life getting to know what it's fear. The film, which is now considered one of the classics of the genre, attracted mainly thickening atmosphere of tension and fear, when the American supermen slow recovery from a routine bravery and balance.
Similarly successful is the concept of an alien, blurred, frighteningly mysterious characters, using perfect mimicry, whose presence signaled by thermography his eyes. Only in the final scene appear on the scene throughout the monstrosities perfect masks Stan Winston.

Google Translate:
Ha ha....yea, I'm breaking out into a cold sweat just thinking about having to rotoscope around every leaf in every frame of every scene...

That's why they sometimes need hundreds of artists for these conversions with each one taking their share of the scenes. It also explains why some conversions can look so poor with some conversion houses no doubt just doing a quicker, cheaper blanket conversion with complex scenes or even using automated software that doesn't work very well.

I agree, I hope it does! I find it strange that this would be in 3D, not a film I would like to see in 3D personally...

News spreads fast, and given my Google-frenzy this morning I'd like to think it started here from Nommag's post and link haha!

Another article has popped up, not much info:

Good analogies IMO, except for including Monsters Inc. in the bunch.

Monsters Inc. was actually re-rendered in the most extreme literal sense of the word. It is a 100% Native-3D production. Both left and right virtual cameras captured for the first time the original archival data, that needed hard-to-find dated-equipment for access. With significant manipulation, the creation presents two original points-of-view for the 3D feature.

The work involved repositioning characters, total volumetric changes in characters and shadow detail, complete background and object renovation, and then the placement merging for stereoscopic composition.

The 3D movie encompasses todays standards for higher resolution detail and visual performance. A contemporary rendition in all aspects to the original classic CGI feature.

This is definitely one of my favorite Schwarzenegger movies of all-time so I'll surely be picking this one up.

No apology necessary. Made the same presumption until Bob Whitehill and Josh Hollander described the Monster Inc. process in the movie clip here.

BOT: Really hope JVC has learned from I, Robot, for a more immersive Predator 3D conversion experience.

I wouldn't get my hopes up for this. The 3D conversion of Predator will be far more challenging due to the dark, jungle scenes and the poor original source for the 1980's film. They will probably use the Ultimate Hunter Edition Master, which will upset the film purists, some of whom think conversion to 3D is blasphemy.

I'll pick this up for sure as long as it ships with the 2D disk. i robot 3D was a decent novelty. I love Predator and don't own it in 2D so this will be how I buy it. Shame it doesn't come out until the last quarter of the year.
