The products you mentioned were never presented to us as something we would all own.

I'm fully aware of every 3D release people are praising. Action movies with lots of explosions, car chases, superheroes, monsters, robots, magic spells, exosuits, etc. Many people find those elements...

Since Gravity, I've seen ~150 movies, none of them in 3D. Lack of compelling artistic use of 3D, and lack of emotionally-engaging movies getting 3D versions. 95% of action movies are riding the...

Well, the first article isn't wrong. 3D wasn't/isn't being used artistically, and the varying quality levels of last-minute postconversions and money-seeking popcorn blockbuster tack-ons have...

A fad is something that more or less dies after a short stint of popularity. "Is the 3D fad dying" is like asking "Is the 3D fad a fad?"

You've come in here with the answer already in your mind.

With a few exceptions, CG animations typically do ~30%, while action movies do ~45%. This is not a recent trend, but one that has been ongoing for years.

3D in the real world is actually pretty strong, our eyes have a 2.5" interaxial. What PowerDVD does is similar to what I've seen from camcorders with less than a one inch interaxial.

There's no arguing the facts. At 25% strength, the onscreen parallax is only maybe 1/2 that of a standard Hollywood movie. Turn the strength up, and it starts to become even more painfully obvious...

After testing Power DVD 15 with half a dozen movies, I would be worried if studios stopped producing 3D. Power DVD 15's realtime 2D>3D conversion is worse than even the notoriously bad Clash of the...

Here's the Star Wars Force Awakens 3D trailer. The opening shot is the one with the excessive parallax.

Forgive me if I'm misunderstanding again, but it sounds to me like you want to use your Blu-ray player's 2D>3D conversion, plus your TV's 2D>3D conversion, but it's not possible. The TV will see your...

All conversions these days are pretty good in terms of shapes. What matters is how it was shot. Simply tacking on an extra camera isn't enough.
