I've identified a problem with both of my copies of Meet the Robinsons 3D and Bolt 3D, both purchased through Amazon. When I'm watching either movie on my PN64D8000 through either my BDT-210 or PS3, I notice it having issues with the left and right side letterboxing. They will constantly change size and shape, going from either straight lines to a trapezoidal effect. What's weirder is that if you turn the 3d effect off, the same kind of effect continues on the 2D version. I even checked the 2DBR disc and the issue does not exist there; it is native to the 3D version.

At first I thought it was an issue with the 3D disc itself and requested a replacement of Bolt through Amazon. Once the replacement arrived, I noticed it had the same exact issue.

I've tested it on both the PS3 and the Panny BDT-210 with the same results. I have no other 3D display to test this through, so my preliminary guess is it's either the TV or Disney has decided to go forward with a new means of encoding for 3D that doesn't play well with 3DTVs.

Anyone have insight or a way to help me out? My son could care less while watching, but it literally drives me up the wall.

*Update*
I was curious, so I went on to Vudu from my PS3 to see if it was specific to the BD that I had purchased. Turns out it had the same issues. Now I'm really confused as Samsung hasn't released an update for their TVs since version 1022.

It's called floating windows, and it is by design, in order to minimize the issue of right/left eye discrepancies for negative parallax objects at the edge of the screen when viewing 3d:

A Christmas Carol does the same thing.

Yes, every Disney 3d release that I know of uses this technique.

Well that's unfortunate. Funny thing is I didn't notice this with Nightmare Before Christmas or Lion King.
