I just read up on it, and Gravity is apparently going to have quite a lot of CG. The only thing I'm worried about is the reflections in their space helmets and other transparencies that never seem to get converted properly.

Is that really a good reason though? Obviously, I have no idea what the actual storyboard entails, but if they are doing 10-minute takes with emotional close-ups of actor's faces in space helmets, then I would think native 3D would be almost necessary and wouldn't be too challenging to shoot either. I'm going to remain a little skeptical until I see a preview.

I guess they're green-screening a lot of the sets because they would be really expensive to build physically.

Maybe they can use CGI helmets or CGI visors, and any facial conversion oddities won't be as noticeable.

Agreed. Plus if the environments are mostly CG, most of the reflections can be too I guess smile.gif

They're shooting X-Men in native 3D! It's so rare for a big-budget action movie.

Also, since my last post was about Gravity, it's worth mentioning that there will be a trailer soon...

I wonder if X-Men will be HFR too.

And yeah, I think I might want to see Gravity.

Possibly 4K Red 3D cameras like "Gatsby"?

Lee- You have Deep Gold 3D listed as ??. According to your IMDB search you claim you don't have any info on how the movie was made. I just got a copy of this and it is pretty good 3D quality. But there is no listed credit in the move for 3D at all. In the "Making of" special features there are plenty of shots of the equipment being used and no where do they show any twin camera systems being used. One should therefore assume this was a 3D conversion movie.

This appears to be the best list available. Note they also list 3D films that are not shown in 3D in the US.

For an overall list of films coming up, including whether or not they are "real" or "fake", I like this list:

Well vinnie97, one of the kindest and most helpful and respected members here, was banned for silly reasons. And now vinnie_RIP is banned as well. The mark of an inexperienced moderator is to forget that their role is one of resource, not one of petulant authority and further that the members are doing the forum organization a favor by being here, not the other way around. They know darn well they screwed up here.
