3d is fine especially if you have active 3d. it won't die because the amount of films made in 3d will continue. it's just a marmite thing. I always watch films in 3d IMAX when they re available.

Would be alright if any of the films weren't awful

actually the best way to view 3D at home is Passive 3D on a 65" 4K OLED ;-)

such a disappointment that all 2017 tvs have dropped 3D support :-(

Unfortunately you are wrong. I have a 3D TV, and enjoy 3D films, in fact i really only buy 3D films now. However the death of 3D has started with the fact that none of the big TV manufacturers are making TV's that support 3D anymore.

True.

Was hoping for Ant-man and Doctor Strange.

All incorrect statements on that manufacturers have dropped 3D. Panasonic is still supporting it this year with their tvs. Blu rays are still being released in the format. It's not dead yet. LG and Samsung are just in a race to make the brightest HDR TVs.

In your opinion... some of us just like to enjoy a film rather than be armchair film critics. (_;)

If you're not going to listen to any counter arguments then yes there is no point in you arguing with anyone.

The "3D is dead" comments are getting so tiresome.

Go google Panasonic's TV line up... they're rereleasing the DX902 as one of their flagship LED tvs this year and their new TV, the EX750 is releasing with 3D too. See here.

Wasn't "arguing" with you. I was merely correcting the incorrect statement that all manufacturers have dropped 3D. They haven't. 3D films are still releasing in the cinema and on blu ray (Kong is even up for preorder in the format now) so support hasn't dropped yet.

Oh and Sony just updated their Playstation VR headset to support 3D films. Why bother wasting resources if "3D is dead" too.

That's the key point for me. Whatever happens with 3D TVs, it doesn't necessarily have an effect on 3D disc releases as there is still a passionate user base that already have existing TVs (or are willing to track down 3DTVs in future). The fact that 3D at cinemas is going nowhere soon also helps.

I also strongly believe that the negative feedback over certain manufacturers dropping 3D support for 2017 models will see them return in 2018. Petitions are already under way for this very thing.

Agreed. LG will be supporting it again without a doubt. Their reason for dropping support was to increase brightness on their OLED tvs for example. Once they work out how to get the nits high enough with 3D, they'll be selling 3D tvs again.

​I hope that happens, as I'd like to get a new 4K TV with 3D support in the next couple of years.

@biddilybah, I have a VR headset and was really looking forward to the latest ps4 update. Not had time to try it.

They may still be making films - which they will for a few years yet, but if manufacturers stop 3D tvs then eventually as TV'S are replaced it's still going to die out. Unless what you have suggested happens, and support returns in 2018.

​3d on psvr is incredible, admittedly the resolution takes a hit but seeing it on a huge screen more than makes up for it.

Out of interest, is the resolution lower than on a passive led tv when watching 3D films or about the same?

yes I thought they would get a new lease of life with the psvr since the ps4 latest update anyone have any views on this?

​​​it's difficult to compare the two really, its like sitting a few rows back at the cinema you wouldn't expect the image to be as sharp as if you were sitting at the back.

There are a couple of choices of screen size, the smaller the image the higher the resolution appears.

Another advantage is the movies appear brighter unlike when viewing through 3D glasses which darkens the image.

Some of the scenes can literally make your stomach drop, i watched Guardians of the galaxy and where the camera pans across the city from a birdeye perspective is incredible, it'll be hard going back to watching 3D movies on a normal size tv now if I'm honest.


Here's a good article explaining the advantages of passive 3d on 4k TVs:

cnet.com/uk/…ls/

The article's from 2014 so 4k TVs have gotten even better since then, e.g OLEDs.

Basically the main complaint about passive 3d of halving the horizontal resolution/pixels, on 4k TVs it'll give you full resolution 3d for both eyes, which is the max spec of 3D Bluray anyway, unfortunately 4k UHD BD has omitted 3d as well, so no "4k 3d".

Btw I have the oled65e6v, and passive 3d on it really is quite brilliant, crosstalk and flicker free, very bright and clear images, cheap and comfortable glasses etc, great for family viewing!

I prefer passive. The reason I was asking for a comparison of PSVR to passive 3d is because I didn't really notice the drop in resolution that much when I had a passive 3DTV.

Would love that OLED you have but it's a tad too pricey for me. I have my eye on the Panasonic EX750 that is releasing this year though.

I wish they would start putting the 3D in with the 4K releases. I can't decide whether to buy Kong in 3D or 4K, can't afford both.

Totally agree. Some releases in America have both yet we don't get both over here. It's one of the factors stopping me from jumping to 4K blu ray.
