I bought a 3d projector and some 3d glasses (I know 3d is generally rubbish but for £14 for 2 pairs of glasses I thought I'd give it a go)

Anyway I have some 3d side by side files. How do I actually get the to show up as 3d on my projector? I'm guessing I can just play the file then press a button on the remote to make it 3d but wont that lose half the resolution?

Is there a way to send proper 3d content to the projector so it gets full 1080p per frame? I'm guessing thats how the 3d blurays work?

Has anyone done both and noticed a big improvement from one to the other?

Also can I convert files to work via a ps3/ps4 if the pc isn't an option?

Google is your friend here - but is essence you are right - if you are using a side by side file then the resolution will be halved. The solution to this is to find a sequential 3d file or a Full SBS file. The former is encoded
at full resolution (and your glasses alternately filter out for each eye alternately.

The sequential files are at full resolution, but unless from a Blu-ray are not that common - you will normally find SBS (side by side) or OU (over - under) - which both suffer the half resolution issue - albeit on a different axis.

Alternately look for Full SBS - which combines two full 1080 images - but tends to be a HUGE file and again is not that common.

Regarding your side by side files - for most tv's and projectors - you play this in from your PC and just let your projector know that this is the type of file you are using by selecting from the remote (unless it is capable of auto recognition).

PS3/4 is likely to be more limited in terms of playing downloaded files in 3d (especially as they have DRM checks if your files aren't 100% paid for) - but are of course good for playing actual 3d blu-rays.

Wouldn't worry too much though - either way event the standard SBS files should give you a decent 3D experience.

Thanks I tried the SBS files I have and they worked pretty good actually. It's probably good enough for what is essentially a gimmick. I'll look into getting some sequential files and see how I get on. Google was a frustrating experience, seems 99% of the results I was getting were tutorials on how to watch 3d films on a non 3d tv using the old red/blue 3d specs.
