Personally I would have preferred a lower res with a higher bit rate. That way, the PQ overall would have looked better and more people would have been able to stream it with success. After all, most computers do a pretty good job of upscaling and 3D still looks great even at a lower resolution. I'm a bit peeved TBH because I downloaded 300Mb (30 mins) of the 3D stuff and all I could see was a break-dancing Camille Villegas.
I must admit though, the few seconds of smooth video that I did see really made you feel like you were out on the course. I play quite a bit of Golf myself and both the spaciousness and undulating quality of the course really came through. A few times though, the seperation between left and right image was humongous. At one point, while watching Rory Mcilroy walk up the fairway, the large seperation nearly made my eyeballs pop out of their sockets.
Admittedly, the 3D does look impressive like that, but it's a bit too much and makes distances look very unreal....like through the eyes of an agoraphobic on acid.
Let's hope that the Masters website puts up some 3D video highlights online at some point. That way we can just download them at our own leisure without having the bandwidth issues.
