@ barbus...

"Broadcast 3-D is going to be embedded in the standard 1080i signal, which means the actual resolution of the '3D images are going to be much less than 3D'"

The parts between the ' show how much of a 'tard you are. Shut up. I do know how Directv is going to work its 3D...which theirs will work both WITH the glasses now...and without glasses when that tech debuts.

Not the Guru,

No, you don't know. If you knew, you would get it right, maybe even partially right. You didn't know what stereoscopic is, and now you are resorting to dazzling us with technical terms such as "WITH the glasses" and "without glasses". I had a typo where my last "3D" should have been "1080i". What's your excuse? No one word would fix your definition of stereoscopic. I liken you to the partygoer who continuously drops names at the party, usually in the wrong context, in order to make themselves sound important. Only you do it with technical terms you don't actually know because you can't seem to get them in the right context. I read these forums in the hope of learning, and get weary of know-nothings trying to make themselves an authority when they are obviously not, all the while spreading misinformation.

3D requires more than 1 camera...really? Like a 5yo can't figure that one out already.

I saw 3D on a Mits DLP 3 years ago. The same system that they will be using now. I know how it works, I know the gimmick it is. I've seen the frame rate slowed to 1/1000th of a second, I know what it does (in reality) to be sequenced with glasses.

When you've seen a 1/1000th frame rate of a 2 second bit of movie, then we can talk about the reality vs "the myth" that is 1080P 3D.

What the heck are you responding to now?

Why are you being condescending about more than one camera, you are the one that used "stereoscopic" wrong? So, apparently you are the one who doesn't know what using more than one camera means. Since, you defined stereoscopic as having to be 1080i. Maybe we should keep the PC away from you until you reach the age of 5.

I have no doubt that you have seen technology. But, you have shown little ability to understand and discuss it using the terminology correctly. 1080p does not currently go to 1/1000th of a second frame rate, so whatever you are babbling about, it is not 1080p. The myth appears to be your status as guru.

What I was talking about...if you view a LCD or plasma showing 3D without the glasses ON. What you look at is a jumbled mess.

That jumbled mess slowed down to 1/1000th of a second, then show the actual breaks in the picture so you can see what happens, and why/how the glasses do what they do.

The demo disc shows the picture the TV does do (over a 5 second span in "pause") then shows what the left/right eye sees for the next 5 seconds. The demo disc takes approximately 10 minutes to view.

So, what the demo disc does is show EXACTLY what the TV does the entire time. There is NO TIME in reality that 3D is EVER actually 1080P.

1080P 3D will require 4K/2K resolution...which Toshiba is working on.

Not the Guru,

Your post is a jumbled mess. Saying "slowed down to 1/1000th of a second" is like saying a car slowed down to 3 feet. You slow down to a rate, not a measurement - For example mph or fps.

Plus you are talking about the technology you saw released 3 years ago. This is before HDMI 1.4 high speed and BD's with 120 fps. What makes you think that they haven't improved the technology to 1080p? Why are you stating as current FACT the shortcomings of 3 year old technology?

And also why aren't you making this analogy to 1080i? That is where your argument is valid because there is not enough bandwidth in a 1080i signal for a full 1080i 3D picture

Good afternoon everyone,

3D is pretty confusing to many people and Amazon wanted to help you learn more about this new technology and decide whether this is the right technology for you and your loved ones.

We have created a new knowledge center that's focused on 3D, called 3D 101. You can reach it at

Feel free to check out our videos, read our FAQs, participate in our forums around 3D, we will try to answer as many questions as we can.

The Amazon 3D Team

Clash of the Titans wasn't filmed in 3D, they just ran it through a program to make parts of it have depth. That's why it looked so bad.

Sorry if you did not like my post, but "Not the Guru" has a long history starting way before this thread of doling out bad advice and infomation while claiming to be an industry insider.

Frankly, I do not care how I present myself in this forum. These are people who are trying to make themselves more important than they are. I do not care how important I am. Take me or leave me. If someone says something stupid, I will let them know they said something stupid. If they say something smart or funny, I let them know that they said something smart or funny. Not the Guru and I even have had our personable moments. You should not judge on simply one exchange, anyways.

And if you are judging me on that level, please consider judging yourself on the same basis after basically calling me stupid. You are behaving on the same level you are berating me about. I believe that is known as hypocrisy. Right?

Amazon finally has a button when searching within movies for Blu-Ray 3d. Searching with this gives you a more accurate list of the 3d titles available.

LOL - I've been calling it "Dances with Wolves in Space" since it came out. So glad someone else sees it that way!
