On the topic of 2D -> 3D conversion, is there any recommendations for settings, or is it more of just trying out different combinations until you find one that works best?
Also, regarding the "left/right" or "right/left", is there any way to tell which is right, or is it by trial?
So far the 2D -> 3D seems kinda gimmicky, as expected. although granted I haven't tried it with much yet.
for me, Left/Right is normally the correct setting most of the time, (above 80%)
But depending on the source of the video and the encoder it could be Right/left too.
you shouldn't need to worry,your eyes will tell you right away which is the correct one. ( the one that doesn't give you a headace)
. hurts your eye
example:your background is jumping in front instead of staying in the back.
the 2D to 3d doesn't work well in fast action scenes, but for slow ones, they do ok. some times when a person is smoking, you can see the cigarette sticking out
Also, if you use [2d to 3d] to watch certain SD videos, it video actually looks better. The Passive glasses filters the image and your mind re-process it again, and fill in the blanks, (almost like upscaling) This is probably due to the interlace effect of the passive 3d. not really sure how to explain it, it kinda like watching SD on the old CRT TVs. i don't do this offend but it's fun from time to time. Play some Wii games with it too.
