Watch 3D movies on your regular 2D TV or computer screen

Post by squatty on Sat Jun 22, 2013 7:11 pm

I did it today, without any 3D glasses, or 3D monitor/TV.
Just downloaded a 3D animation movies ("Brave"), and watched it on my old 2D Samsung SyncMaster LCD using VLC player and my eyes, in 3D and unbelievable quality.

3D movies are composed of left and right cameras, weaved together in a single file, side to side.
when you play a 3D movies using VLC, the left and right part are played side by side horizontally.
What I did was stepping back away 5 meters from the LCD, and merge the two sides together using my eyes, the two screens turned to four screens, and then I overlaid two of them on eachother, so I was seeing three screens, one 3D screen at the center, with two 2D screens at its side.
Then once my eyes locked and focused on the 3D overlaid screen, I stepped closed slowly, and sat on my sit, and watched the movie and enjoyed it.
But I tell you my eye muscles are tired, but they will get used to it. I'm not messing with "zonal" muscles (muscles that change the diameter of crystallin, AKA vision focusing muscles) here, that's a bad thing. I'm just messing with muscles responsible to rotate the entire eye orbit.

Normally, both eyes look at the same point, what I did was looking at two different points using each individual eye.
I looked at the right screen with my left eye, and the left screen with my right eye, and my brain merged them together, so I watched it in 3D life it was real life!

For some reason I have quite a hard time seeing those 3D images hidden in patterns.  I've never learned a reliable way to do it, though I've done some eye yoga in the past which probably can only.

Forget 3d. Wait for 4k, 8k then 10k resolution tv's. the company I work for helped develop them and they amazing. They have real depth perception and amazing quality. Blows everything today out the water. No need for glasses or anything.

How is higher resolution related to depth perception?

Trust me. I've seen it, it just does. The picture is so clear it's like real life and it introduces depth perception trough such a crisp picture.

4k is a different technology to active 3D and is supposed to render it useless as you need glasses with 3D or to be at a certain angle, 4k is supposed to be so crisp n clear it gives you depth perception with no need for glasses and what not. 4k tvs will have passive 3d elements and will remove all issues like resolution drop that happens with 3d. Movies are being filmed in 4k now and its something of the future. 3D can be seen as a Fad or an option, where as 4k will be standard issue.
