In the years following the 90s, some movies were made with short segments in anaglyph 3D. Following are some of the technical details and methodologies employed in some of the more notable 3-D movie systems that have been developed:

Anaglyph

The archtype 3-D glasses, with modern red and cyan color filters, similar to the red/green and red/blue lenses used to view early anaglyph films.
.Anaglyph images were the earliest method of presenting theatrical 3-D, and the one 3-D method most commonly associated with stereoscopy by the public at large, mostly because of non theatrical 3D media such as comic books and 3D TV, where polarization doesn't work.^ With one lens, such cameras couldn’t be used for 3D work.

The first decline in the theatrical 3-D craze started in August and September 1953. The factors causing this decline were:
.
  • Two prints had to be projected simultaneously.
  • The prints had to remain exactly alike after repair, or synchronization would be lost.
  • It sometimes required two projectionists to keep sync working properly.
  • When either prints or shutters became out of sync, the picture became virtually unwatchable and accounted for headaches and eyestrain.
  • The necessary silver projection screen was very directional and caused sideline seating to be unusable with both 3-D and regular films, due to the angular darkening of these screens.^ The factors causing this decline were: •Two prints had to be projected simultaneously.

Major 3-D films in 2009 included Coraline, Monsters vs. Aliens, Up, X Games 3D: The Movie, The Final Destination, and Avatar. .Avatar has gone on to be the most expensive film of all time, with a budget rumoured to be $500 million.^ Please explain then..that most films make a profit big time?

^ No need for 3D. The big budget flicks may use 3D with astonishing effects, but not ALL movies need it - and that's why it will take a long time to catch on.

.The main presentation technologies were Real D 3D, Dolby 3D, XpanD 3D, MasterImage 3D, and IMAX 3D.^ The highlight of this presentation is a Miss Piggy sequence where she blows bubbles into the audience, and 3d bubbles mix with real bubbles in the audience space.

The World 3-D Expositions

.In September 2003, Sabucat Productions organized the first World 3-D Exposition, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the original craze.^ World 3-D Film Expo: September 12 - 21, 2003 .

.The Expo was held at Grauman's Egyptian Theatre.^ The 20/20 restored version was shown as dual projection, polarized 3D for the first time ever at the World 3-D Film Expo II ( www.3dfilmfest.com ), at the historic Grauman's Egyptian Theatre, on Hollywood Blvd., on the afternoon of 17SEP2006.

.During the two-week festival, over 30 of the 50 "golden era" stereoscopic features (as well as shorts) were screened, many coming from the collection of film historian and archivist Robert Furmanek, who had spent the previous 15 years painstakingly tracking down and preserving each film to its original glory.^ Seeing these films flat today on television or home video totally diminishes the impact of the original stereoscopic cinematography.

Development of education

In November 2009, Emily Carr University of Art and Design and Lucasfilm spinoff, Kerner Studios, announced the establishment of a stereoscopic 3-D research studio. .The studio will undertake local film production, experimental film and the establishment of certification and degree-level education of stereographers.^ After "Bwana Devil" was released (but before the first studio films came out), theaters needed some 3-D product.

Criticisms

.Most of the cues required to provide humans with relative depth information are already present in traditional 2D films.^ Digital cameras have already "done in" traditional film as we know it.
  • Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news. 10 February 2010 10:34 UTC www.aintitcool.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

^ Granted, most people are only seeing the film in 2D- which means that the film holds up quite well even without that amazing third dimension!

^ We also provide support to long term productions and feature films that might require assistance and advice during pre-production and production.

.For example, closer objects occlude further ones, distant objects are desaturated and hazy relative to near ones, and the brain unconsciously "knows" the distance of many objects when the height is known (e.g.^ I don't know if it was just my cinema, but nothing seemed to come out of the screen at me - it was more that things disappeared into the distance further than usual.

a human figure subtending only a small amount of the screen is more likely to be 2 m tall and far away than 10 m tall and close). .In fact, only two of these depth cues are not already present in 2D films: stereopsis (or parallax) and the focus of the eyeball (accommodation).^ I did notice near the end of the film a couple of short segments where the parallax looked GOOD~ I have to wonder if these were the ones rendered last minute by Disney?

^ The first of these was an anaglyph format presentation - and the World’s first 3D feature film - given by film maker and inventor Harry K. Fairall, entitled The Power of Love.

^ Granted, most people are only seeing the film in 2D- which means that the film holds up quite well even without that amazing third dimension!
  • 3D Movie Reviews by Studio 3D 10 February 2010 10:34 UTC www.studio3d.com [Source type: General]

3D filmmaking addresses accurate presentation of stereopsis but not of accommodation, and has therefore been criticized as insufficient. However, promising results from research aimed at overcoming this shortcoming were presented at the 2010 Stereoscopic Displays and Applications conference in San Jose, USA [2].
