Do 3DTVs give 2D more depth

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Just replaced an old DLP with an LG 7600, our first 3dtv. Regular uverse looks like im looking through a fishbowl, almost fake.

And 3d looks deep INTO the set vs. coming OUT of the set.

I don't like it, it's going back.

I don't understand what the question is here

There's the 3D mode, the 2D to 3D mode and then there's the regular 2D mode

Does the fact that it is a 3D enabled tv change the 2D mode at all?
No. Unless you're speaking of 2D to 3D conversion which is an option you don't have to use at all. 2D is 2D and 3D is 3D

A 3Dtv is the exact same as a 2D set (when its not in 3D mode)

Try adjusting your motion settings, you are referring to what is commonly known as the "soap opera" effect.

When it comes to 3D its all based on how it is filmed. 3D movies are filmed with depth and pop out scenes are scripted and filmed a certain way. Some movies have a good mix of pop out and depth whilst some are all depth (Avatar). All depends on the director and what he/she wants.

Always helps to do a little research before you spend a bunch of money.

ambesolman your a genious,thanks for the tip. i was on this board to look at ads and not do any research. go be cool somewhere else.

blackkeys, that was it, thanks. I thought soap opera effect was a softening/hazy picture but now I know what it is. turned off trumotion and it's much better. still cant find any 3d demos that make the image come out of the screen vs send the background deeper into the screen. I'm still playing with those settings too and giving it a few more days.

If you're on cable TV, sometimes their On Demand HD movie channel includes a selection of 3D movies/documentaries and some of them may be free and would serve well as 3D demo material. My cable provider offers around 8-10 free 3D documentaries, such as Wild Ocean, which has all the pop out and depth you're looking for.

Keep playing with it--you'll get that "popout" effect with the right source material and settings. Generally the 2D to 3D conversion gives that depth but no popout. True 3D sources can definitely do a very impressive popout effect if everything is set up right. Do you have a 3D BD player or PS3 yet?

thanks Steve. Yes I got an LG 3d blu ray player to go with the set. I already had Tangled so watched some of that, and the 3d had depth into the screen. Which looked very nice, clean, crisp, bright, and detailed but would be nice to see some pop out too. I bought Bolt also, but haven't opened it as I wasn't sure if I was going to stay with 3d tech.

Do it right start with a panasonic st50 plasma tv and a panasonic 3d blu ray player. Passive 3d such as lg is incapable of maintaining the high resolution during 3d mode
