I'm unable to watch Transformers 3D. As soon as there is any motion in the scene, my eyes begin to feel strained. However I've played Uncharted 3 in 3D and watched Tangled 3D and a few other games and never noticed any problems, the 3D looked great. I don't understand why my eyes are getting strained from watching transformers, there's no crazy 3d pop out.

I'm using a Vivitek D538-3D projector with a PS3 and Ultra-Clear 3D glasses. Is there some setting I need to change? I can't seem to figure it out, I've inverted the 3D but nothing seems to help so far.

Don't invert the 3D. I'm guessing that you mean you swapped the left and right frames? That would definitely cause eye strain.

If all your equipment is working properly though, I'm not really sure what else you could do other than take lots of snack/bathroom breaks, watch it in increments, or try again another day.

It sounds like he only inverted it to remedy eyestrain that had already come about when not inverted.

I haven't seen it, but I've read that the 3D was well done and that Bay shot more smoothly than his usual shaky-cam style, specifically so the 3D wouldn't be a strain.

But even a toned down Michael Bay movie could have more shaking in it than a Disney CG movie or third person shooter lol.
