Strange vertical black bars on Guardians 2 3D
Watched Guardians of the Galaxy 2 in 3D this evening in my 120 inch screen with an oppo 105D and Sony 45es projector. The aspect ratio changes from 2.40:1 to 1.78:1 quite often. I also noticed that I would quite often get black bars on the sides of the picture fairly regularly also. Sometimes just on the left, other times on the right, and sometimes both. On the 120 inch screen they ranged from 2-6 inches. It was really distracting and I could not concentrate on the movie as it was irritating me. I wasn't sure if I had a bad disc or something else was wrong.
After the movie was over I put in King Arthur in 3D and noticed it a little bit much less than GOTG2. To rule out a bad piece of equipment in my game room I tried GOTG2 on my oppo203/LG65c6p system and LG970/LG55c6p systems and had the same issues at the same times.
This obviously isn't an equipment problem and likely not a disc problem as it happened on the 2 I tried. It did not happen on a 16:9 disc I tried.
Is this just a limitation of the format? I didn't notice it while watching King Arthur this past weekend. I think the reason I noticed it during GOTG2 was because the aspect ratio changes constantly and I was looking around more. Interestingly when I turned off 3D on my projector it would still happen with the 3D disc.
My wife didn't notice it at all until I pointed it out. Once scene in particular between 1hr 12min and 1hr 14min was really bad.
Here is a paused screenshot, look at the black bar on the left compared to the velvet frame of my screen.
