So no "Super Resolution" with anything except 1080p 2D and frame packed 24p 3D. No eshift for 3D. No vertical stretch if you have an anamorphic lens in 3D (this is a killer for me). No panel alignment feature in 3D. Does the frame interpolation work in 3D mode?
Yes, both FI and dynamic laser modulation work in 3D mode. Here's the problem, at least for me, when buying an Epson product -- the 5010 didn't have either FI or DI operational in 3D mode. A year later the DI was added to 3D mode (5020) and a year after that Epson added FI for 3D mode (5030). I suspect the same will happen with the missing image enhancements for the LS10000 -- expect some features to be added to the 3D mode over the next few years with the cost remaining the same. In my opinion it's better to wait a couple of years to get Epson's final product. The real LS10000 probably won't make an appearance for a couple of more years. Even some of the reviewers can't keep track of what features do or don't work in 3D mode.
Here's where it gets confusing: Art says in his review --
"When viewing 1080 resolution content, there’s still variation. If you put in a 3D movie on Blu-ray (24fps), the LS10000 allows you to use the Super-Resolution 4K settings (added -- not according to the owner's manual!) that use the pixel shifting. You can also use CFI at the same time as both of those.
Switch to 60fps content that I recorded off of HDTV, and the 3D works fine, but does not allow either CFI or Super-Resolution (meaning 4K enhancement?). As 3D is its own magic, I’m not overly concerned on the limitations of 60fps considering the limited HDTV in 3D.
PC contradicts Art's claims here:
"4K Enhancement, Frame Interpolation, and 3D: When displaying a 1080p source at 24 fps, the LS10000 offers the full range of options in both 4K enhancement and frame interpolation because the system has the time to engage both. So you can set 4K-5 and Frame Interpolation to High at the same time. However, if you have a source with frame rate faster than 24 fps, the projector will allow you to use one of these two processing technologies, but not both. With a 1080p/60 or 1080i/60 signal, if you activate frame interpolation, the menu option for 4K will be grayed out, and vice versa. Due to the same frame rate limitations, 4K enhancement is not an available option when viewing 3D."
What does the last sentence mean? I would assume that for 60fps content 4K enhancement is not available for 3D (what about CFI -- Art says it isn't available for this type of content and PC says you can activate either 4K enhancement or CFI but not both and then says you can't use 4K enhancement at all in 3D mode with any content
(?)); however, for 24fps material 4K enhancement and CFI are available at the same time (?). Here's how I see it: Art says for 3D with 24fps content both 4K and CFI are available. PC seems to say that 4K enhancement isn't available for 3D no matter what the frame rate is.
Here's what the owner's manual says:
"When projecting 3D images, you can use Super-resolution only with 1080p/24 Hz/frame packing signals. You cannot use 4K Enhancement when projecting 3D images."
I think PC is correct and Art got mixed-up somehow. It really is confusing since Epson has both Super Resolution and 4K Super Resolution.
My attention has now turned to the Sim2 Nero 3 but it seems to have dropped off the radar.
