View Full Version : Viewing D.V.D's in 3-D

23-06-2009, 09:49 AM
I've recently hired a couple of 3-D movies on dvd (Journey to the Centre of the Earth & My Bloody Valentine). I can not watch any more than 5 mins of the 3-D version of the movie before I have to turn it off. The colour is all distorted and all appears to be red or green unlike when you go to the cinema. My kids have a couple of movies as well and they complain of the same thing. I have a plama tv and was wondering if they are not compatible with 3-D movies or is there a setting I have to turn on on either the tv or dvd player. Has anyone else had this problem?

I suffer from a serious case of bung eye, so have no binocular vision. Anything in 3D is lost on me.

more seriarsely, watch the other dvd. The colour casting and focus issues with the DVD watch at home dvds make it a seriously shithouse experience. Just watch the standard version if you're interested in viewing quality.

Yeah I was wondering if it was my equipment or if the technology in the 3-D dvd's wasn't the same. I have got to the point where I will not even attempt to watch them any more.

Journey to the Centre of the Earth is a crappy movie anyway. Watching it in funny colours may actually improve your viewing experience, couldn't make it worse.

See no reason why it should be coming out funny on your tv. If you wear the glasses while watching, you should be all set.

Which type of glasses do you have?
Theres the old red/green lense types, and then theres the newer ones. Maybe you need the other pair?

Found the same thing, 3D at the movies was great, but the 3D DVD was crap and was quickly turned off.

Tried both mate. The red/green come with the dvd's and we have a few of the older blue/red but both have the same shitty results.

Eh I cant watch home 3-D movies, hurts my brain. Just watch it normally. FWIW I enjoyed the movie.
