The sole 3d flick I've seen was Tron:Legcy and I saw that in an IMAX theatre in Montreal (the 3D TV ain't for me, it's for the wife & spawn). It was clear to me after watching the sole 3D preview (Pirates # Whatever: The Quest for Cash) and then taking in the movie that there are proper uses of 3D and excessively gratuitous uses of 3D.
I don't know the 3D glasses tech at IMAX houses, but there was some definite eyestrain as the movie progressed and T:L didn't use 3D for the usual "throw a spear at the audience" cheap crap (unlike the Pirates trailer).
IMAX 3d glasses are the worst when it comes to eye strain they only work correctly if you stay staring strait ahead if you move your head it messes up the optimal effect and induces eye strain, very strange since they have huge screens that you need to look around.You can google movie theater 3d tech differences for the ins and outs of all 3d tech
Well as you know by now i have the VT30 3dplasma tv .It comes with 2 2nd generatio 3d glasses ,that work pretty dang good.But they owed me 2 more pairs of glasses that they didnt have in stock so i had them mailed to me......4 days later they came and to my surprise they were the latest/3rd gen glasses weighing in at 26 grams and last a good 12hrs on a full charge.they r the best 3d shutter glasses i ever wore,so needless to say the 2nd gen glasses are guest glasses.the TV also came with a copy of avatar in 3d note that it is only available with the purchase of a panasonic tv,but you can mail away for a copy with a voucher that comes with a panasonic bluray player.
I tried nvidias 3dtv play to game in 3d but in 1080p resolution it limits you to 24fps,720p will give you 60fps,something about hdmi cable bandwidth limitation, so needless to say i dont do 3d gaming.
As for movies and 3d,it has auto detect 3d sources SBS top and bottom etc.it usually works but sometimes youll have to manually select the 3d format,Blurays like avatar look fantastic no ghosting at all except when they do 3d text like white lettering on a black backround but thats pretty much it.
I dont have any 3d tv channels so my library is mostly blurays or HD mkv downloads,my Favorite so far was last years BCS champ game best 24GB Dload ever,football looks absolutly amazing in 3d,i allmost flinched on a fade route into corner of the endzone,though the wideout was goin to land on my lap.
2d picture quality rules, i thought my 46inch vizio looked decent,now i feel like it looks messed up or something:)
