I'm not renting a pdf, so you'll have to elaborate on that close-to-face pixelation solution, and why it would work better than what's used in current VR headsets.

While you can see individual frames during extremely fast hand movements, the controllers are tracking significantly higher. I don't know the exact rate, but I have reason to believe it's 500-1000hz....

The sensation of actual VR (see: HTC Vive) is miles ahead of what you just described. It's probably useless to try to explain in detail; you'll just need to try it for yourself.

The simple truth is that nobody really knows how deep the VR well will go and when/if it will run dry.

But one thing's for sure: mobile phone VR doesn't hold a candle to HTC Vive.

If you're thinking of trying to use all 3 in the final video, your only audience will be circus freaks with 3 eyes. :eek:

Perhaps. Let me remind you what I'm focused on: motion artifacts that come from having alternating left and right images. Whether it's 72hz, 60hz, 24hz or 1hz, simultaneously displaying the eyes...

My point is, regardless of which component is doing the alternating, at the end of the day the left and right images are being seeing by your eye at different timings.

If you hate 2D film framerates, then by all means, you're ready to hate 24fps 3D. But anyone who's ok with 24fps 2D, should be fine with 24fps 3D on a passive 3DTV, stereo HMD, or dual projector...

You can't take an already shot film and just say, "That wouldn't have worked in 3D." Ask Ang Lee or Martin Scorsese and they'd tell you that 3D can work in drama if planned properly. Hollywood tends...

4K has just 6% more pixels than UHD. 1080p has 100% more pixels than 1080i.

About the same? Crazy talk.
