As far as testing bright colours (I'm assuming you're Aussie or European to spell "colour" like that - I'm from NZ), Trackmania United was pretty bright and looked fine. When it comes to 40% depth, are you referring to 40% separation in the IZ3D drivers? I didn't fiddle with any of the separation/convergence settings when I tested it (it looked pretty damn good with the default settings with plenty of depth), but I can do that next time so just let me know what you want me to test.
I can check checkerboard at that time as well, but from what I understand of the technology the interleaved output is as good as you can get so I'm not sure what you're trying to achieve. Either way, it's the 3D DLP output with IZ3D that I need to use for checkerboard isn't it? If so I'll give it a go for you.
Let me know the specifics of what you'd like me to check for, and I'll let you know in the next couple of weeks how it goes. The only thing I'll be unlikely to change in my next test is the firmware - the store probably won't update it on the display model at my request.
One question I have for you guys: how good is the upsampling is Stereoscopic Player? I didn't have time to do any testing in the store, just wondering if I'm better off using Stereoscopic Player to convert a half-SBS video to interleaved for the TV or to output SBS to the TV and use its SBS 3D mode to display the video... any observations on what gives a better result would be good thanks.
Cool thanks dude.
i find on my ld950 ( may be different for others ) that sbs has a softer 3d image and in game i only need 4xaa to smooth things out, but same game with interlaced wether it's optimized or not i cannot smooth things over with 32xaa as it looks as if there is horizontal alaising which must have something todo with it being a interlaced/interleaved image.
I do however allways use interlaced/interleaved for 3d gaming now but i'm still one way or another about what's best for 3d films, i have some audio lag in 3d mode while watching sbs but i do'nt with interlaced/interleaved but then i'm sure the picture looks better with sbs.
Yes iz3d is 3d dlp and depth is seperation, you can change the depth ingame by using the + - on your keyboards numberpad as they are the hotkeys.
I'm from teh uk so spell " color " as " colour " but sometimes i get mixed up as most of the forums are not from the uk so i try to keep it in context.
Checkerboard is needed for the following reason....
There are 4 types of stereoscopic gaming softwares, tridef,iz3d, 3dvision and 3dtvplay but we'll just say theres 3 softwares as 3dtvplay is totally rubbish but that's just my opinion.
So we use interlaced/interleaved with tridef and iz3d but we can't use interlaced for 3dvision as it only supports 120hz pageflipping or checkerboard.
Seeing as we are having problems with checkerboard i now find myself locked out of 3dvision due to the colorbug, i do'nt like to play with low depth/seperation and i allso do'nt adjust settings ect to make the checkerboard ok-ish, i play perfect 3d or not at all after all why would anybody want to play something that's flawed when they have perfectly working other types of 3d.
So without checkerboard i can only use 2 of the stereoscopic softwares which is tridef and iz3d...
This kills me because i had a samsung c750 3dtv before this lg ld950 and checkerboard worked as it should with no colorbugs or problems.
I spent 4 months of my life without working interlaced/interleaved or checkerboard so that's £850 for a tv that i can't use with 3dvision or anything else that outputs checkerboard, it's crazy, and only recently have i managed to get interlaced working correctly with no colorbug.
I feel like checkerboard has took over my life lol
I'd be gratefull of the info you can supply us in the future of your new tv.
How would it affect you if you had the colorbug with checkerboard?
Well you would'nt be able to use 3dvision for free with your nvidia card and the 3dvision emu so you'd be stuck with 3dtvplay
if you could bear it.
Some games work better with tridef,iz3d or 3dvision, maybe a game does'nt work with tridef or iz3d but it works with 3dvision, but damn i have the colorbug so no playing the game.
If you want to be a hardcore 3d gamer then you will probly at some piont need one or the other, by this time you would of had to buy iz3d and tridef, and as 3dvision is free with teh emu on nvidia cards then its not big a hole in your pocket.
