My viewing experiences: 3D 48, 2D 24, 2D 24, 2D 24, 3D 48 [In reply to] Can't Post

I tried. I still feel more relaxed and get more out of the story in 24fps, though my second try with HFR yesterday was better than the first time because I knew what was coming in the story. I sat in the absolute center of the Embassy, Wellington with the large special edition Hobbit 3D glasses on. It was definitely easier watching the fast motion sequences in 48(zooming through Erebor, rabbit sled), but is that because it was shot to be shown with more frames? I don't remember other 24fps films having so much blur in quick scenes.

It was lovely that I felt I was in Bag End. Perhaps after I've seen a dozen films shot this way it will feel "normal", but it is still just distracting at the moment - pretty, but distracting. It'll be interesting to see how the next Avatar affects me, and the next Hobbit films, for that matter.

It was great seating for the Atmos surround sound, better than being against a wall as in my first time there; the snoring dwarves in the cave were very believable Laugh and forest sounds and the falling water in Rivendell were eerily realistic and added to the experience. I'm looking forward to nature documentaries in HFR with Atmos sound.
