Does anyone use the 2d to 3d converters on there tvs?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
The 2d to 3d converter on my samsung unc558000 works good. I used it to watch the space shuttle launch on hdnet and it worked good. My screen does get smaller when when i use it.

Ive used it on my Samsung PN50C680, and its ok, gives a bit more depth to images. Thought It would have a little more depth, than it does. Might just be the channels ive watched.

Use it all the time with my new LG passive. TV picture looks flat without it. Really adds to viewing. Go back and watch your favorite movies again.

I have the same tv as the OP and rarely use it. Too much trouble for too little of a return.

It works well on the HTPC.... Phantom Menace was impressive, the pod scene truly a marvel of the technology. Early reports seem encouraging using the new Pnany players to do it.

Which Software are you using on the HTPC? I have TMT3, TMT5 and PowerDVD10 and find it ok but not as good as what my Samsung 680 Plasma does. It seems the bottom of the pictures show some 3D depth but the top has little depth. Very uneven on the files I have tried so far.

I used TMT5 and PowerDVD. I use Power DVD more because of less quirks for me.

You know, I have not run one in a while. This all would of been back on early versions, with the early versions I found the 3D Controls to actually impact the 3D I got from conversion a lot.

One other issue I have is I have a few demo 3D files that are in SBS MKV form. Their default language though is not english. There is no option to choose a differeent audio track. However, when I play these demos using VLC, a non 3D system, I can change the audio tracks. This is very disappointing...

Hi
Do you use passive glasses with your 2D to 3D converter?
Also.You don`t say if your LG has an in built 2D to 3D conversion mode.My LG passive has an inbuilt conversion mode and even with the 3D effect turned up full its still a bit flat especially when compared to true 3D
If your LG passive also has an inbuilt conversion mode could you please tell me?
What,if any,is the the difference between the LG passives inbuilt 2D to 3D conversion mode and using the 2D to 3D converter on your passive TV?
Cheers

Conversion varies on different sets. The LG DN2350 I have has the best I've seen and I've seen most of them. The Sony I had was the worst. One Samsung I had caused ghosting on a part of the screen. I'm watching my local baseball team right now, it's like looking through a window.

Like looking through a window at a video being projected on a pile of randomly shaped rocks?

I have an LG 65" 65LW6500. I confess I don't use the 2D -> 3D conversion very often. Oh, it does a creditable job of it, but doesn't compare to a well-done 3D movie (like Hugo!). One *shot* in 3D, mind you; 3D done in post falls somewhere in between. Like John Carter.

Anyway, conversion gives the illusion of a little depth. Funny that The Phantom Menace was mentioned earlier in the thread. That one looks rather good when converted. OTOH, I felt certain that The Searchers (1955) in VistaVision, would look good converted. It doesn't. Then there are the occasional weird artifacts. Has anyone else tried the coronation scene in ROTK? It looks for a split second like Aragorn's head is disembodied, the silk neck wrapping being pushed into the background. Might just be my eyes, I dunno.

What I'm getting at is that how good the conversion looks will depend on the source material. The conversion uses sophisticated algorithms to make a best guess as to what is in the foreground, background, etc., and adjust accordingly. Some movies will look a lot better than others.
