    Yes; I came back into the room whilst it was playing (I tend to leave the glasses on whilst making tea etc) and was a bit shocked to see the Pacific Ocean pouring out of the telly :laugh:

    Probably the first film I saw in 3D at the cinema and still awaiting a 3D bluray release, The Final Destination.

    2 scenes really, one where he`s stuck under water and there`s a rogue plaster floating around you. It`s very subtle to as it`s going towards the screen, rather than coming out.

    Also the floating ash on the construction area behind the cinema, which does a full 360 spin, floating out from the left and coming back from the right.

    Considering it's a 2d to 3d conversion that's surprising.

    ....just watched the yogi bear 3d film advert...i have to say its excellent....very very good sense of depth and lovely detailed HD cgi.....some great "pop" out of the screen moments. I am sure the film is crap but the 3d effect is very good...

    worth downloading if u can....

    Conversion or not i can only comment on what is in front of me and the depth is quite amazing. As time goes on they will get better at doing conversions and actualy filming in 3d. I thought alice in wonderland was another film with good 3d and thats a conversion.

    As far as Final Destination goes its out on 3d bluray theres a few on ebay

    Just had a quick look and yes it is the old crappy style, dont understand why they cant release this though. Given the lack of movies out they would make a quick profit for sure.

    Definitely, also makes me wonder where biohemmet got there clips of final destination 3D from :confused: Needs a release on Blu ray 3D though, easily the best film I`ve seen for pop out effects. The nascar accident at the beginning is full of them!

    Just watched Deep Ocean Experience 3D.

    The depth is amazing in parts, but its just soooo boring, its basically a 48min screensaver.
    Good neon colours on the fish (like a fish version of Tron) and such but it was sending me to sleep.

    Absolutely agree :smashin: Apart from having great 3D the trip through the Cosmos was quite mesmerizing.

    How did you find the tether cord which looked to be floating in front of the camera on some orbit shots? No cross-talk but I still couldn't focus on it (just 10 cms in front lens I'd guess)

    I just read all the comments in this thread as I have been doing some serious research on 3D sets today. It was only until I saw this thread that I hadn't considered how much 3D material is actually available, based on this thread there isn't much at all so I may have to rethink buying a 3D TV.

    I can see your point. What doesn't help is some movies are still exclusive-only (Avatar 3D will be exclusive to Panasonic tv/blu-ray player purchases till next year for one). But that's also why I picked a Samsung, as they use a reportedly pretty decent 2D to 3D conversion mode to watch normal 2D tv or movies in 3D. Nothing will pop out at u, but apparently can give a decent perception of depth in the picture.

    Well I took the plunge and ordered an LG LW550T last night, fingers crossed it was a good idea lol. I just couldn't bring myself to buy a normal 2D tv because the 3D thing was niggling me at the back of my mind. If (and it better lol) 3D does take off better then at least I'm sorted.

    I think I can promise you'll be blown away by it :smashin:

    There's a huge amount of 3D material about (some bad) and it's just a case of knowing where to look ;)

    Sky offerings seem good, from what I've read, but precious little is available from film libraries :(

    Been testing 3D BD's since my 55D8000 arrived yesterday. Best BD so far has to be Legend of the Guardians, in particular the parts where he flies through rain and flies through fire in slow motion.

    Looks absolutely beautiful with a stunning sense of depth all the way through the movie.

    Most of the stuff on Sky seems to repeat quite often. I think I've only watched the Bugs programme, which was quite good and a bit of football and the Masters at the weekend which looked great, oh and a bit of boxing too, which also looked really good.

    You know you need to have the full Sky World package to get 3D right? If you've got Sky World anyway, just sign up for 3D it won't cost you any more.

    I also found the 2D 3D conversion on the Sony sets to be quite decent. On SD content its ok but if you have a good collection of blurays it will give good depth to them but as mentioned no popout.

    Good 3D content - Legends Of The Guardians,TOOG. All scenes involving birds and water in slo-mo. Looks fantastic. Never thought i would see a better 3D scene involving birds and water since watching Piranha3D but its superb.

    Megamind 3D is very good ..some excellent out of the screen moments and lots of depth too..bit like Despicable me

    Now they are directing films for with 3D in mind instead of converting... releases are getting better and better

    True, just a pity most are CG animated. I like them don't get me wrong. But i'd love to see more live action 3D films coming out.

    Awesome, Despicable me had some really good pop out parts and probably the least crosstalk I've seen in any film.
