Don't encourage them. Although I don't care, I've never had to see a movie in 3D, they always offer them in 2D. Except for IMAX movies, which sucks.

Subby there are more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy. Who knows why this worked or how but it hardly matters. There is far more we dont understand about the brain than what we know to be true.

3D movies blow and I would rather see them in 2D.

If this is true, good for you.

If it happened, cool for the guy, but really?   I'm pretty sure that the next innovation in surround sound will not let me hear out of my left ear, in which I've been deaf since birth.

I snuck into a 3D showing of the movie Coraline when it first came out and it was AMAZING. Only movie I ever saw in 3D and it was so great I snuck back in and watched it 4 more times. Of course I also smoked a lot of weed before each show, but its worth watching even sober. Other than that one movie, 3D is a stupid waste of money.

I've seen a phenomenon like this with the 3DS. The first few times you play with it for a bit, your depth perception goes all wonky for a couple of hours afterwards. It really does seem like you're seeing distances in sharper relief. After a few sessions, it stops happening.

I always chalked this up to some strange kind of eyestrain. But I guess I can see how you might be able to work this into some kind of vision exercise for people with weak depth perception. I do, however, think it's really unlikely that a movie could do that; you'd probably have to calibrate the images for each person, and 3D movies don't do that.

Hollywood isn't MAKING you see movies in 3D, it's just that they look stupid pointing a stick in your face on 2D.

Confirmation bias, placebo effect...there are a handful of ways where this could have "worked" without actually working.

Another Government Employee: I can't do 3D. Massive headache.


The old school red/blue glasses 3D gave me a wicked headache every time. Nu3D doesn't bother me at all. Well, the cost bothers me. Both of my kids worked at AMC at Newport on the Levee while they were in High School and one of the perks was free movies for family members. We saw just about every movie that looked even remotely interesting and quite a few of them Imax/3D.

I miss those days.

Hmmm.

Something doesn't follow logically here. I just can't quite put my finger on it.

I will go see something in 3d if it was filmed in 3d and not converted. So far IIRC thats been Avatar, Tron Legacy and The Hobbit.

But those are STILL few and far between.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_3D_films

Looks like Pacific Rim will be a conversion, so the next movie i see in 3d will be Hobbit pt2.

I do, however, think it's really unlikely that a movie could do that; you'd probably have to calibrate the images for each person, and 3D movies don't do that.


I do that with my prescription sunglasses and much newer normal clear ones.  The lenses are farther apart on one pair, so when I swap my eyes have to adjust ever so slightly.  I got more used to it after a while but it still does it on occasion.

That's why it stops happening.  You'd probably notice it again if you go long periods without playing, just like getting on a bike after months/years/decades and you can be a bit wobbly, but you'll learn faster each time how to do it.

It's all tied into muscle memory, for lack of a better term.  With exercise, most people improve at a given task.

Very seldom to people instantly get better and simply stay that way, and when they do it's typically a "natural" thing,[ie the first time I picked up darts in a bar I played well, and always have].  This old codger would be fighting against decades of conditioning and would have a rougher time of it than most.

In short, i'm not buying the story, it's a far outside shot that concentrating for two hours woke up part of his brain or musculature enough to fix the problem.  Though, you are right, it could be therapeutic for some people with problems.

/though it can be a headache to a great many
//myself included

The headache/dizzy thing could be from orientation issues(where your angle to the screen does not match the camera's angle to the scene), or simple imperfection(ie two camera's being too far apart(in relation to human eyes) and creating too much of an effect, or something along those lines).

Some people have a less acute visual/orientation system and don't have as much of an issue with these things.  But they really fark with my equilibrium, feels like being drunk/dizzy almost.  That must be closer to how those people perceive reality if they don't have issues with it.

I got wicked bad headaches watching 3D until I got glasses that corrected my astigmatism. Now I can watch without any problems.

My problems with 3d are as described, so it's all I can account for to explain(not anything on you, but a lot of people simply don't get the hate, so I try to inform as best I can).

 It's an approximation of reality, some closer than others, but all are still a poor substitute, and some people's visual processing centers just don't deal well with the difference.  Akin to fish eye lenses and fun house mirrors, things just aren't supposed to look that way and it's disorienting.

Especially when you factor in other camera tricks such as tilt-shift or changing focal lengths.  We're just not designed for it.(just a turn of phrase, not a creationist).  Can be stunning in photography, or short sequences, but when it takes continual focus it can cause problems.  Like nearsighted people who don't take their glasses off to read up close(I'm' guilty of that myself).

It was just a tangential to the topic of exercise and therapy, and my rambling of course. Some things cannot be changed or helped, in this case, it's just the way some brains function. Motion sickness, vertigo when high up in the air, headaches for 3d, variable amounts of disorientation from spinning in circles, or the gorilla test.  Just the way it is.

Yeah, subby.  It did.  Because of the mechanics of vision and the mechanics of 3D projection.

It's amazing to me, with the Occulus Rift already blowing jaded journalists' minds, that this 3D hate-train is still going.  We get it, post-conversions have sucked.  The televisions are still expensive and you can't afford them.  farking hate-on.

But this is an example of something trifling, not worthy of fighting, getting in the way of an actual thing that can actually help people.  And by extension, all of us.  When people complain about not seeing 3D movies, I'm more worried about them driving home than enjoying the film.

So way to go.  You waited to learn something from CNN, and then decided that their shiatty reporting meant it wasn't already a known quantity and has been for some time.
