loose - Not firmly or tightly fixed in place.
lose - Be deprived of.

I was quoting them as they used the wrong word in their sentence. But I know it is a habit and I used to do that too. Once someone pointed it out for me I never made the same mistake.

But I also made a mistake, I meant to say "does not equal" with "=/." Apparently it is "!=" in the internet world. :P

Cheers.

Given that my eyes are horizontally side by side (I know, I'm a freak), how do you simulate depth for the brain except by shifting two parts of an image slightly side-by side horizontally to recreate the initial parallax? (because obviously, the 3D conversion remains a pair of 2D images)

And how do you extract part of an image from it's back ground except by rotoscoping (by hand or with a fancy algorithm)?

How do you fill the blanks left in the image except by looking at the current, previous or subsequent images to find the missing content?

From what I understand from Textor's speech, they patented the very principle of 2D to 3D conversion, not a given way to do it. The very fact that everybody "infringes" (all unrelated manufacturers, studios, software companies in different sectors with their own R&D), should further demonstrate that, shouldn't it ?

Simple, not everyone posting on these boards has a formal education in English.

I can't understand so many people paying for watching fake 3D (2D filmed). It sucks!!

Yeah, they never say in a trailer that it's 2D to 3D. They say "releasing in 3D". People don't get it.

maybe the do the conversions? or work for the "holographic" resurection stuff? or the military projects or on medical visualisations? thats all the field where mr. textors sees more profit then in the vfx movie world

Yeah, unless you see the trailer in a 3D projection.

No way. "Converting" 2D to 3D is a bullshit. You can separate depth planes from every shot, but you CAN'T get volume from any figure/object. Period.

Was The Amazing Spiderman a 2D to 3D conversion? Because it was the first live action film I've enjoyed in 3D....it probably helped that most of the stunt scenes where we seen Spiderman in full costume were CG but still, the live action footage felt very dimensional.

Hopefully this will speed up the demise of 3D.
