No, it has to do with how close I'm sitting (this is my computer monitor). I'm close enough that the top and bottom of the screen will start to crossover because of the spacing of the FPR layer...

I haven't even gotten Netflix 3D to work on my PC at all, that's the only real barrier. It's like it refuses to acknowledge that my PC is 3D-capable. If you get that working, let me know.

That's pretty cool, thanks. Shows me exactly where the bleedover happens on my monitor (like I didn't know, but this could help find a sweet spot with maximum 3D visibility). I'll have to try it on...

I tend to never adjust the effect. If it's a film, I'm content with whatever the director and DP thought was good. If it's a game or something, I can usually adjust the effect in software. Otherwise,...

Exactly. I think the TV's upscaling of the 540p image, and then the splitting into interleaved fields is what's causing it. The TV isn't smart enough to simply "spread" the lines across the...

20/15, probably better than yours, so don't tell me to "check my eyes". Are you inside my head, to tell me what I can and can't see? I'll take what my eyes tell me over a chart of what I'm "supposed"...

HOU works on paper for passive displays, but not in practice. The loss of vertical resolution is noticeable, and the overall image appears much softer than HSBS. This isn't a technical thing, this is...

Our local theater does charge extra for 3D, and again to watch it on the super-duper-mega screen. I can maybe see trying to cover the cost of loaning out the glasses to some extent, but I bring my...

Probably true. While he's correct about far-distance 3D objects, what we saw at the end of the film was a holographic projection, so scale could easily be thrown right out the window. In the hands of...

There have been some comparisons here on AVS some time ago, but I don't have any direct links.

Here's some examples of the kinds of changes you can sometimes see. This is not all-inclusive, and...

I think Cameron would be happy if a 2D version never existed.

Wouldn't that be a coup? lol.. if he only released it 3D, in theaters and home video.

The problem with that is, like TGM mentioned, turning off 3D and watching only one eye is not the same as watching the 2D version. It's not a matter of encoding, it's a matter of how the film was...

Well, why not just run the test in the OP between a FLAC and a 320kbps MP3? Seems simple enough, if you've got the software for it. I'm not sure my tools will do it, but I could give it a whirl.
