Yes you would think wouldn't you but based on Imagic's absolute stubborn refusal to accept that there is anything wrong with the content, I have been looking deeply into the operation of my Panasonic Blu-Ray player over the last hour or so and have found that the software on the device and the ludicrous settings Panasonic choose to default too on playback has been killing the 3D on Prometheous almost entirely.
On standard playback I get plenty of 3D on every title but not this disk. Oddly, the players default setting result in virtually no offset and there just isn't much if any 3D. When you guys see the Captain in 3D at the far end of a 3D room tending a 3D Christmas tree, I see a captain that is almost flat tending a flat Christmas Tree in a 2D room.
If I resort to manual 3D setting, suddenly I get offset and stunning 3D.
So, my appologies guys for complaining about the Title. I am completely wrong and it in indeed my useless player that has been causing the problem which just goes to shown that its not just zeros and ones, its also the way in which the software in these players interprets and outputs these zeros and one.
I am off to take my embarrased backside to my HT to enjoy Prometheous in proper 3D at last!
Thanks Imagic for your insistence with this one. I would probably have never got to see this one in proper 3D without you. I am very grateful.
