Popout rarely happens in that kind of content anyway, so I'm not too discouraged by your impressions. What do you mean by out of focus?

So...

Were they fueling the set with a native 3D signal?

Doesn't UltraD attempt to render fake perspectives in-between the optimal (native, true to source) autostereoscopic viewing positions? I would suspect that those would indeed look inaccurate.

Just knowing that the Avatar sequels are coming I think has been a shot in the arm for the studios. As long as Cameron is pumping out sequels, theaters have a reason to keep the 3D projectors in...

The panel I saw was ghosting, but all the 3D was doing was pushing the entire image back deep past the screen plane. I didn't see any shapes to lead me to believe the system was analyzing objects to...

Ghosting isn't holding the Teranex back. Normal 3D content can project several layers of well-rounded 3D depth without problematic ghosting. The problem with converters is that they're just guessing,...
