As far as the PQ in 3D while watching Avatar, can we all take a moment and rejoice hallelujah please? I know you mentioned using an HP screen but againsts it's freakishly large at 14ft and you are saying that it looked good still, better than good. Well my lo 1.1 gain screen is only 9 ft at 1.78:1 or 11ft at 2.37:1 so less gain but also less real space. My other question is how far is your throw distance?
This is all great news! Please keep watching, observing and reporting back while the rest of us live vicariously through your 3D glasses
I left it stretched from when I loaded cloudy with meatballs. I did not check the AR of Avatar, but only looked for distortion with lens in place and there was none, so it meant the oppo was zooming 3d. it look way to good and I didn't even think for a second to change it. Funny though if it is 1:85:1.
Yes, the 3 d is spectacular. Period. On some bright scenes there was minor flicker, but not distracting at all. This is really good 3 d done right.
I have to check my screen measurements again, because the largest part is 14', so I think it may be the diagonal. It looked better then good. When I loaded cloudy 3d I thought oh crap, this is a gimmick because it was dull. I forgot to press 3d on Jvc. It was not automatic:-( but big deal....
Once I hit 3 d pow....bright, then I zoomed and hit lens in and holy crap, stuff got crazy good. I immediately loaded Avatar and my jaw droppedmon the menu alone. Yes, it is better then good. This is one of those defining milestones. My first viewing of HD was Joe Kane's 720p from hard drive on Vision 2 and I was floored. It looked like a cutout in the wall. Second defining moment was seeing an Ayre DVD player Sdi into Teranex firing from a Vidikron Vision 1 by Chris Stephens. Third was the Meridian mf1 on a scope setup with bluray, which compelled me to go scope. Fourth was Avatar in IMAX. And now this. The topper of them all. Any weak scenes were followed by incredible scenes, so it is clear that this pj is subject to the strength of the content. Fast motion in 3 d is weaker then other shots, but these are real world technological limitations. The motion was still fine, but the effect is obviously diminished.
If anyone's experience doesn't match mine, I'd urge you to make sure you have this combination of screen and lens (or isco III :-) and eyeliner setup and then you'll have a grin on your face that won't go away any time soon.
Throw distance is about 13 or 14'
