A decent way to see if the glasses are part of the problem is to look at a very dark or black picture/scene. Even if the projector is set weird, that black should still look pretty black. If the glasses are passing a light they aren't supposed to be, then the black will have a noticeable green tint as well.

If blacks have a green tint, it's time to shop for a different brand of glasses.
Thanks for your input. I found some time to test out the suggestions to made, and the resulting output still looks green when viewed thru the glasses.

Note that in both examples below, like before, the green effect is a little more intensified than how it actually appears, but only by a small margin ..

Example #1 :

Without glasses (enabled 3D -> 2D option):



With glasses:



Example #2 (dark scene):

Without glasses:



With glasses:



Here are the settings I'm using:

You might find some decent color settings back at post 771 that might work for you.

Its just the nature of 3D at this point, it will be darker than 2D. And the contrast really suffers along with colors.
The industry just isn't ready for 3D yet. Going to need to be some improvements before it works very well. The next big step will be holographic 3D, that should be pretty nice.
3D is just like looking through a window at this point and I just don't find that all that entertaining.

The thing is that until they come up with a better system for 3D, we have what we have, and it is still better than 2D as far as I'm concerned. Also, I'm 71 and to wait for big time 3D in the future might just be too far down the road. I do find the brightness suffers just a bit, but in a near dark room, I see no real problems. Colors are fine and contrast is fine.

Are those settings for 2D or 3D ? I can't tell. I really need the settings for 3D only as I only intend to use this projector for 3D (for 2D I have JVC RS-46).

Although darkness is also a problem for me, my major concern is the 'greenish' tint that's visible when viewing 3D content through those EStar 3D glasses. I can't seem to get rid of that.

Although, I think everyone else here uses those same 3D glasses with this projector, so I'm not sure if the glasses are to be blamed.

The setting work for both 2D and 3D. As for the glasses, many of us use Sainsonics, no green tint in them. I use the over the glasses type, Sainsonic Zodiac Model #28-010-904 and have no problems with color, of course they do darken the brightness a little, like all of them do, but in a near dark room I find that no problem. These glasses do not need the external emitter.

Those are DLP-Link glasses, while I'm using RF .. I also went through the whole thread today (took several hours but I did it!), and it seems a couple of people did previously point out that the EStar 3D glasses tend to boost the green tint a little, but no remedy of any kind was offered at all, probably because I think very few people noticed the tint for some reason ..

Also, as all RF 3D glasses for this projector are made by the same parent company, getting a getting brand won't help .. So I'm now thinking if there's anything else I can do ..

I noticed it a bit however the Brilliant color setting had the largest effect on the green tint. Turn it down and it got a lot better.

Hey guys, I just moved and am trying to figure out my setup. Its looking like my only real option is putting the screen 14 inches from the lens. Is that just too close? The calculator says it is but what is the drawback? It says I will just barely get it to 120" and that is the size of my screen so that's ok and I assume it will be brighter too so that's good but why is it in the red(according to the optoma calculator).

I also struggled with too much green for weeks on end with my Optoma HD25-LV, tried dozens of combinations of settings, and at one point just gave up; no matter what I did, I couldn't get rid of green skies in color movies. Then I decided to throw calibration to the winds and simply changed the default color temperature from Warm to the coolest setting. Everything looked vastly better and I had the blue skies I'd been missing. I have made a couple of very minor tweaks since then (boosted the contrast from the default a bit) but basically the 3D default settings were fine (other than the Warm color temperature). I also turned off Brilliant Color (I don't remember right now if the 3D default uses BC or not and it's late, so I'm not going to power up my projector to find out!). Hope this works for you.

To my surprise, I found that a black-and-white 3D movie such as CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON was a great test for my color settings. If the picture doesn't look black-and-white (too much blue or green or yellow), then fiddle with the 3D settings until it does. Be sure to have your 3D glasses on when experimenting since the ideal 3D picture will have a slight bluish tint to it in 2D only (meaning the double-image version you see without the glasses). Your yellow-tinted 3D glasses will compensate for the bluish tint that you will see in 2D when you remove the glasses.

Recent Optoma projectors allow two different saved settings, one for 2D and the other for 3D, so these adjustments shouldn't impact whatever 2D tweaks you may have already made. (I can't speak to 2D settings as I only use my Optoma projector for watching 3D; I use another, older projector, a Mitsubishi HD3800, for all of my 2D viewing.)

I think I tried different color temperatures already, but to make sure I'll give it a go again ..

However, the thing which bothers me is that the green tint is only there when I view thru the glasses .. If I just straight up look at the 3D picture without the glasses, the colors seem fine .. This is why I personally feel that maybe the glasses are at fault ? However, that being said, everyone seems to be using the same glasses I have in this thread, and this hasn't been any major issue for 95% of the people here .. :/

when watching 3d I'm in 3d mode not user.

I have brightness up to 4 and brilliant color at 7.

Seems to work for me. I'm using the estar 6 series rf glasses too.
