Gave 36, Got 95

Of course it may just be the films that I have watched - so far only Cloudy with Meatballs, Shrek 1, Despicable Me and Gnomeo and Juliet. Any suggestions for films with the most impressive 3D imagery would be welcome.
I think it depends on the input source and what you are viewing. From what I remember when playing with these settings on my D6900, the one (I think depth) affects 2D->3D conversion only and is greyed out most of the time, whereas the other (I thing perspective) simply moves the left/right images further apart or towards each other.
What you'll find on some scenes on some Blurays is a bit of ghosting/crosstalk, and from what I can tell it normally happens when the L/R images are simply too far apart (which gives the effect of objects close to the camera protruding "out" the screen).
For example, take a look at the opening title of Despicable Me. Now if you pause it you'll notice a faint double-image around the red logo. Fiddle with (I think) the perspective control and you'll be able to eliminate most of that ghosting. However, I suspect the knock-on effect is that it introduces subtle ghosting at a different depth plane. Fiddling with it also introduces some nastiness on the edges of the screen since the two images are no longer overlapping properly.
Personally I'd just leave the 3D controls on zero and watch the movie
