I'm sure the conversion on this title will be on par with the conversion 20th did on I,Robot. That movie was converted using JVC Kenwood’s 2D3D workstation. One of the benefits of this system when compared with other conversion techniques, according to Fox SVP of Advanced Technology Ian Harvey, is that it allows for faster conversion by minimizing manual rotoscoping or paint work, which in turn can cut costs considerably. Estimates for 3D conversation have ranged from anywhere from $30,000 to $100,000 per minute in the past, which would considerably add to the budget of any movie project; Harvey won’t be drawn on the cost of the JVC system, but will admit that it is “less than other techniques” that Fox has previously considered.
What it seems to be is some kind of automated 2D to 3D system that is run and then tweeked by real humans. I thought I,Robot was just a fair conversion and not up to the standard seen on humanly supervised conversions like Jurassic Park and Top Gun. The JVC system conversion is cut rate and looks it, although it is still interesting and I will give it a chance. To bad 20th doesn't spend the money to do it right as in the afore mentioned films.
