So this week I've been choosing between the Epson 2100 and the BenQ 2050a. Earlier this week, I watched Jurassic World in 3D on my Playstation 4 w/ Epson 2100 (frame sequential). It looked phenomenal.
Today I decided I wanted to try the 3D capabilities on the 2050a. I bought Spy Kids 3D on Vudu for $5 as my demo material. Auto was greyed out, as well as frame sequential / packing. The two lit up options were Side By Side and Top Bottom. Neither worked, just showed a semi-3D version of two overlapping images that didn't converge in any way. Time for Google.
Google directed me to try setting the resolution to 720P. Once applying 720P, frame sequential became available. While this worked, the 3D was very shallow and looked NOTHING like the fully immersive 1080P 3D Jurassic World experience I had with the Epson 2100. I want to try renting Jurassic World again to see if I can get it to view a full 1080P frame sequential image on the 2050a.
In any case, shouldn't the 2050a be able to display frame sequencing
Any idea why it would be greyed out? Secondly, is there a way to get the side by side 3D to work? Do I need to enable something for that to work? Lastly, is there any way to adjust the 3D effect on the 2050a? The Epson has a bunch of different options to tinker with to create a better 3D image. Can't find anything on the 2050a.
Thanks in advance to anyone that is able to help!
