I just returned from watching this movie in IMAX 3D.
First of all, it looks like a last minute 2D to 3D conversion. The picture had depth but no image pop out. It was shown using REAL 3D glasses ( very confortable) of which, you were permitted to keep them if you so desired.
When Real 3D started the demonstration, prior to the start of the movie, I noticed a "red" bleed around the text and on some of the images, very disturbing.
It was almost was like a misaligned lcd panel or prior to that a red crt gun from the old 3 gun front projectors.
The "red" bleed for the most part went away during the actual movie but was still present and guess what noticed; "Ghosting" although only on a few images in both the right and left eye but not at the same time.
I did not notice a great amount of brightness loss while wearing the Real 3D glasses, comparable or even a little less than when wearing active shutter glasses.
IMHO I would save the extra money and not see this movie in 3D; overall a decent fantasy movie with good special effects.
So my non technical conclusion to the ghosting situation is that it can't be blamed completely on the active shutter glasses since, I believe, I was using polarized 3D glasses.
All comments will be appreciated; can't anyone get 3D right?
Well maybe Avatar 3D did but I wasn't aware of "ghosting" at that time.
