This one is wild.
pop out 3d out of the screen is awesome and i cant understand people who say its just a gimmick.
i have 42" lg passive tv.
there are not much menu options for the 3d menu, only change left/right and set angle point, that's it.
the tv is in my room, so i watch movies from distance of 2.9 meters,
i found out one day that when i pulled the tv closer to me to 2 meters i had better pop out effect.
so why is it in theatre the effect is way better?
well its the screen size that matters here,
notice that if you have a movie like "imax under the see" with the potato fish breathtaking pop up 3d,
the pop out effect will be different in all sorts of devices like projectors, theatre or tv at home with the same file.
if you will take the same file and see it in theatre, the size is what will give you those floating images, and on tv at home you look on a miniature version of the film.
the movie "puss in boots" in the beginning of the film there is a landscape view that is meant to be close to your eyes, but you dont get the effect of the landscape fly near your eyes,
again its because the tv screen is too small for it to happen.
it seems that in those 3d tv's you dont get floating images unless you try hard and put effort to see them :)
now i read somewhere that in order to get the effect like in the theatre of things actually happen in front of the screen,
you need to use a magnifier clip on (x2.5) in front of your 3d glasses,
it will scale the screen size and then you will be able to see the pop out effect close to your eyes.
i read it about the ACTIVE glasses,
i think it might be a solution,
also it says nothing about the PASSIVE 3d glasses.
what do you guys think?
anyone heard/tried the magnifying clip ons?
will it work for PASSIVE glasses?
take a look at one user who mention it like it is a know fact:
i manage to enhance the pop out effect,
try to put something between you and the tv screen to have a reference point.
if you are lying on your bed, put a chair between you and the tv in a way that the upper chair edge will be more or less in the height of the lower edge of the tv screen,
that way you no longer have to "guess" how much the imaged "popped".
"imax under the sea" fishes looks floating above and in front of the screen this way,
you can see them swim before the chair and you cant be mistaken about the pop out here.
