There are a number of things. [In reply to] Can't Post

But the biggest one is, if you can remove a dimension form a movie without loosing anything, then that extra dimension wasn't being used properly in the first place.

We have already discussed contrast and colour saturation. Whilst these could be tackled in post production, my experience of 2D prints is that the film producers tend not to bother. I caught Journey to the Centre of the Earth in 2D on TV the other day, and the colours looked like an LSD trip!

The issue that cannot be fixed in post-production is shot composition. To make what's happening clear, you have to separate it. So, in a 2D film, you have screen left, screen right, screen centre. In a 3D film, you have the option to separate action into foreground, middle-ground, background instead. We see a couple of shots that do this in the trailer. When you convert such a shot into 2D, everything can end up compressed into a confusing mess where it is difficult to tell what is going on.

For these, and other reasons, I expect the 2D print of The Hobbit to be significantly inferior to the 3D version.

A Far Dragon is the best kind...

                48fps supposedly helps with the light loss but doesn't eliminate it. // Estel78 Send a private message to Estel78 Sep 25 2012, 5:14pm

                        Actually the polorization in modern 3 D movies is circular. Kangi Ska Send a private message to Kangi Ska Sep 26 2012, 8:13am
