Need advice on the 3D Depth Adjustment settings during shooting. This has a range of -8 through 0 to +8. The Sony documentation says that this moves objects into and out of the "3D Comfortable Viewing Zone". Their picture in the manual shows objects at three distances from the camera, and an area that is this comfortable zone. It starts with two objects in the zone and a closer one outside the zone. The adjusted shot has all three objects in the zone. Of course, they don't say directly how they achieved this - by increasing or decreasing the value! The implication is that they increased it towards +8 thus moving objects into the background area. But it would be nice to know for sure which direction they used.
More explicitly, I'd like to try filming soccer action from a tripod while I play. That involves always deciding how much to show, how big the people will be onscreen, etc. Has anyone played with this scenario enough to know (1) how large the players must be onscreen before the video goes from 2D to 3D in practice due to distance from the camcorder and (2) what the interactions are between the distance from most of the field of view and the 17 steps of 3D adjustment during filming? With scenarios using stationary objects close up, I can just film at all 17 steps and then see what happens during playback. For soccer, I'd prefer to learn from other people's experiments.
Any advice on this parameter and its use would be appreciated. Advice relating to unattended filming of field sports from a tripod would be specific to one need.
