  1. The Future of 3-D By Alex Beachum

  2. Brief History • 1922 First 3-D film (The Power of Love) • 1952-1955 The “Golden Era” of 3-D • 1980-1984 3-D Revival

  3. Anaglyph • Two side-by-side projectors • Color-coded “left” and “right” images are projected simultaneously • Tinted glasses filter the proper image for each eye

  4. Problems with Anaglyph • Color Distortion • Image “Ghosting” • http://youtube.com/watch?v=eFcsEf-02XA

  5. Image pops out at the audience Not so much in others Great in some cases

  6. And

  7. Real D (passive system) • A single digital projector projects alternating polarized images against a silver screen

  8. Real D (passive system) • Polarized glasses filter the proper image to each eye • Circular polarization lets you tilt your head 45° in any direction

  9. Advantages of Real D • No color loss • No ghosting • Depth of vision described as looking through a massive picture window

  10. How It Works

  11. In-Three • Converts 2-D films into 3-D movies through a process called Dimensionalization (DZN) • The source can be live-action, computer- generated, or cell animation • Computer-generated 2-D movies are the easiest to convert because the characters already exist as 3-D models in the animation files

  12. NuVision (active system) • A single digital projector projects alternating images onto a standard matte white screen • An infrared emitter near the projector signals which image (left or right) is being shown

  13. NuVision (active system) • NuVision’s glasses electronically interpret the signal and turn the appropriate lens opaque via liquid-crystal cells

  14. Advantages of NuVision • No ghosting or color loss • Depth of vision comparable to Real D • No silver screen required • Better extinction ratios than passive systems - active system ( >250:1 ) - passive system ( 30:1 )

  15. Why 3-D? • Movie ticket sales decreased by13% between 2002 and the summer of 2006 • The 3-D version of Chicken Little (using Real D) grossed three timesmoreper screen than the 2-D version • 3-D is something movie theatres can offer that can’t be found in a home entertainment system

  16. Passive (Real D) Cheap glasses can be disposed of or kept after the show An expensive silver screen must be installed More expensive, fewer hassles Active (NuVision) Glasses are too expensive to give away, so a cleaning machine must be purchased to sterilize them between uses No pricey silver screen required More hassles, less expensive Passive VS Aggressive Systems

  17. Industry Support • Peter Jackson and Stephen Spielberg both plan to either create new movies in 3-D or to have their classics dimensionalized • James Cameron claims that he will never direct a film in 2-D again

  18. Industry Support • Disney Digital 3-D uses Real D technology • George Lucas plans to re-release all six Star Wars movies in 3-D (via In-Three)
