Decided to try another Amazon 3D titles.
Perfect Sky is a collection of random 3D clips set to some rather blah music. The 4D quality was pretty good but not really in high resolution. The 90 minute piece opens with some whale-ocean clips that repeat and repeat and repeat, same scene over and over while the long selection of music continues. Then when that gets really old, they run the clip backwards and repeat and repeat and repeat. So I skip ahead about 20 minutes and see some fireworks and a different selection of music commonly referred to as elevator music. No natural fireworks sound was included. Somewhere along the way I fell asleep so I didn't see the end. It is a rental form $1.99 for 7 days so I'll have to try to suffer through this again to see what other boring stuff is in this title. The fireworks was actually much better 3D as it was very deep from filling the room to well behind the screen plane. I was curious as to how he did this sot as fireworks with extreme popout is near impossible to shoot. A closer look I see he used about 6 layers of 3D video shot telephoto and spaced them out on different Z-axis places along the depth line. Now that was creative. What was really funny was he ran some of the fireworks layers in reverse which made me laugh. All this was set to some unrelated quiet elevator music.
I don't know how to rate this since the story was non-existent, editing was lousy, but the 3D was decent.
If you wanted to test out what Amazon is offering in 3D SBS, here is a title you won't feel your wasted $1.99 on the rental.
