Interesting workflow article.


"The reality is that our movie is not shot in stereo 3D. It was shot in 2D and then converted during the VFX process."


I don't like this process. The "Viewmaster" effect, as it has been called, simply isn't the best 3D option out there. With close-ups, not shooting in 3D means people's faces are still flat, even if the 3D background shows depth.

Its slightly unfair to say Alice was 2d to 3d conversion.


Sure all the greenscreen live action elements were processed this way but the VFX shots themselves ( which is most of the movie) were done stereoscopically , so all the environments etc that make up the bulk of the image were proper 3d.


I guess you could argue they were going for a quaint sort of storybook effect.

While I was watching Alice in Wonderland at an authentic full-size IMAX venue (Minnesota Zoo), I was constantly aware of how dim and fuzzy the picture was, and how hard it was for me to resolve the so-called 3D picture.
