I'm cross posting the following, but I had to set the record straight here because of some misinformation I've been spreading about the new JVC 3D projectors:
I need to apologize and offer a retraction - sort of. I jumped to a conclusion about 120hz video on the JVC projectors. I said I was convinced they couldn't handle 120hz refresh rates without ghosting. The fact is that ghosting with footage shot in MVC mode on JVC's TD1 3D camcorder is not a problem. I just watched some Shaw's Garden MVC footage and it looks wonderful on my JVC RS40. Side by side video on the RS40 is a problem, and I much prefer watching it on my Samsung 3D plasma. The Samsung ghosts far less with SbS 120hz. For MVC, the RS40 turns into a different animal. I don't know why. With SbS, I can't escape the ghosting. With MVC footage, I barely notice it. It's like 3D Blu-ray. And because the JVC has far superior black level and contrast compared to the Samsung, it has a lot more "pop."
Again, I apologize. I jumped to a conclusion, and it was just plain wrong. I'll be shooting only in MVC mode from now on, and I won't worry about a compromised picture for me and my guests. It's a big relief for me, but it also emphasizes the need to get a viable 3D editing solution for MVC files.
