You do realize they're releasing that disc in stores in a couple months, right? No need to pay anything above retail for it.

Also no need to shout. Welcome to the internet.

Welcome to Rivendell, Mister Anderson.

Watched the first disc on my epson 6010 at 120 " and it's breathtaking.

Can't wait to watch the second half tonight.

I also watched the first disc last night on my new 159" High Power screen and Optoma HD3300. All I can say is, "wow." Like being there. The deck shots and feeling of depth were spectacular. I had the opportunity to visit a Titanic exhibit a couple of months ago, and they had a mock up of the Grand Ballroom staircase. Seeing it in 3D in the movie was quite moving. On the 159" screen it felt life size. Other memorable moments are: down in the boiler room--all those giant pistons and feeling of depth was breathtaking, and inside stateroom shots. This movie is a game changer for me. I never thought that a 2D to 3D conversion could look this good. The only negatives were the slight old-color look of the movie that takes away some of the realism, plus the 3D made Kate Winslet look a little plump and puffy with a big head, and Leonardo looked younger with a smaller head. Looking forward to part 2.

Just bought my first 3d Tv a Panasonic VIERA TC-L55ET5 55-Inch. Great tv by the way!! I never wanted 3d in the past but with the passive 3d I figured I would give it a go. TV came in Saturday I put in Titanic and all I could do was keep saying wow! This is just amazing! Only watched about a half hour of it because I want to watch it with my girlfriend on Tuesday. So far this makes me a believer in 3D!!

i saw some 20 min. and all parts looks very very good.

a bit sharp but dont know if the use sharpness enhancement or the original super 35 are so good from the new scan.
i decrease sharpness by -3 to 4 to get the best picture at the panasonic 3d bd player.

again (i saw the movie in the cinema in 3d) it surpris me is how good a 2d to 3d conversation can get if
you spend a lot of money for it and James Cameron do it.

now i hope for T2 in 3D and other big movies as i hear that the 2d to 3d conversation from titanic was profitable.

James Cameron stands for high quality again and again.

the movie will be soon at many dealers that will show with it how nice 3d can be.

I tried switching to the 2d disc to compare. There is no comparison. The 3d really makes the movie so much more immersive. Plus it has a 1.78:1 aspect ratio versus the smaller (for most displays) 2.35:1 on the 2d bluray. Finished disc one. Very impressed with the conversion.

Hey guys, i watched the Titanic 3d film last night on my Sharp 70" Aquos and as everyone says its is amazing. I had some cross-talk double vision blur at some points but that will be down to my tv setting. Other than that i must say the upconversion is the best ive seen and picture is reference material to me. Still havent watch Avatar so will need to get back to you on that.
A must buy for 3d if you want to be wowed.

I also have been impressed with the quality of this conversion, and have anticipated this since I saw a trailer for it in a theater awhile ago... the wait has been worth it!

I was also impressed with the extras included, and found "The Final Word" by JC to be very interesting and informative... a kind of "what we got wrong with the film" and the forensics of the debris field.

Now I'm just waiting for the "extended version" of Avatar to be available (I'll wait on rushing out to get the theatrical version since I have the extended version Blu-ray, and if the wait is too long/never happens, then I'll pick up the theatrical version when the price drops).

And I haven't given up hope that JC is also working on a similiar 3D conversion of "The Abyss" which could be amazing also! (3D Russian water tentacles anyone? biggrin.gif)

Yes, agreed that many of the scenes looked fake. But you have to consider that when this movie was made the technology didn't exist to create many of the CGI scenes that we can do today. Titanic used inverse kinematic motion algorithms to have wireframe people walking around the decks. Today, CGI uses motion tracking for a more natural look. Also, back then, CGI graphics details was not able to generate hair and smoke and particle rendering for true to life details like we can today.

When Titanic first came out these detail deficiencies were mostly hidden due to the lower resolution of the cinema and TV viewing. When DVD release was made we began to see these issues in the movie. Now with 3D and HD Blu Ray those scenes are truly lacking in quality compared with state of the art 3D movie making.

When viewers are impressed with the 3D conversion and have enjoyment of the story, it is the live scenes that we refer to. We, I, am not trying to say that Titanic CGI is as good as it gets. I am saying that the movie as a whole in a 3D conversion is very enjoyable to watch.

"Pop Up Book" yes that is my problem with 3d. You are saying there are some 3d movies that look more natural and not like a Pop Up?
Let me know what they are please.

I would suggest the issue is with your 3D vision or your viewing environment or both and not with the 3D itself because what I and tens of millions of others see and what you see are worlds apart.
You want examples of good 3D? Here are just a few:-

1. Avatar.
2. Hugo.
3. Drive Angry.

If you are seeing flat cardboard characters in a 3D environment then something is wrong and it isn't the movies!

I don't mean to offend you, I really don't but if an enormous number of people are seeing something differently to you, you cannot really blame the 3D technology any more than a person with hearing difficulty in one ear can claim surround sound technology is flawed. Its just not a logic conclusion to assume 3D is at fault, based on the evidence available.

So in the interview, JC said he added more picture height to the 1.78:1 transfer from the Super 35mm negative, but I haven't seen much talk about it here.

Can anyone confirm this, and that it's not just cropped?

All of the non-CG shots indeed use more height of the Super35 frame. In some cases microphones and other misc items were digitaly removed when needed.

CG shots were originally protected up to 2:1. Because of this, CG shots shown at 1.78 do crop some of the sides, but still show more at the top and bottom of the screen.

The underwater footage of the true Titanic wreck were shot in Technicope, had a true Scope AR, so those shots were cropped at the sides with no additional height information for the 1.78 3-D version.

Here are a few sample screenshots
