  • Trouble with 3D Attractions

    The New Star Tours rumor gave me an idea for a post, which is something I have wondered for awhile. Everytime I see a 3D attraction it never looks 3D to me, I remember seeing Captian EO as a kid and had no trouble, but as an adult it just sucks. Does anyone else have this problem? Is there something wrong with my eyes?

    Nope, nothing wrong with your eyes!
    Have you recently seen HISTA? The 3-D is blured.

      It depends on the technology used. For instance, I saw Spy Kids 3D and it was pathetic...but then I saw Superman Returns in 3D, and it was awesome! It depends on the type of glasses and stuff...

        Never had a problem with 3D stuff (movies or attractions)

        Now, I'll turn that little mouse's dream into a nightmare Fantasmic!

          Yes this one is particularly bad for me, I keep rubbing my eyes looking around at everyone else and they seem to be enjoying themselves so I just assumed it was me.

              The best 3-D that I've seen has been Nightmare Before Christmas 3-D and Meet the Robinsons in 3-D.

              The technology for those are AMAZING. If they could apply that to atractions, they will be amazing too.

                I think the Capt EO 3D was better than the Muppets 3D and HISTA.

                Plus I think there was much more depth used in the filming of Capt. EO

                  Different technologies do help, but if I recall from some of my college classes I remember learning that biologically speaking, some people cannot detect 3D perception as well as others do.

                    Distance between your eyes matters.

                    I think the problem has to do with the distance between your eyes. With small children, the distance is shorter, so the perceived effect is greater. I know this because when I was smaller, I watched Magic Journeys and noticed that the objects all ended up looking like they were about 1-2 feet away from my face. As an adult, I watched that movie when it was just about to close and the objects all appeared to be about 4-5 feet away from my face.

                    When I've played with 3-D systems where I have control over them, like computer games, I find I have to adjust the "separation" between the images to be further since my eye distance is wider than average.

                    So you'll notice that with small children, the 3-D images will cause them to want to "pet" the objects floating in front of them, while guys with big giant heads (like me!) will never notice that tendency, or if they do, they have to reach a full arms length away.

                        For myself, I have reading glasses, meaning I'm very farsighted. I used to be teased because if you tossed me a ball, as it got closer to me--it would phase/blur out and I was a lousy catch because of it.

                        I've noticed that I can see the 'depth' of a three-D movie fine, but as the images leave the frame, they pop out of focus if I don't have my reading glasses on.

                        I have noticed that, however, if I wear my glasses up until beforehand, I'm okay as well.

                        It's weird.

                        But I hear ya. The three-D stuff does mess with your vision and your head.

                          i think 3d films are getting old, im always expecting

                          1. something "attacking" us
                          2. the rat trick
                          3. a "sneeze" "squirt" "wet explosion"

                          eh and they give me headaches

                            Yeah I remember doing this when I was a child. I never thought about that , maybe I have a big head problem as well

                              I'm slightly 'wall-eyed' and I find that I see the effect better if I go to the 3 d film early, before my eyes tire. It's much harder for me to hold the focus if my eyes are tired.
                              I also could never make out the 'hidden' image in those abstract, spotty pictures.
                              So there are many reasons why the effect works well or at all for different people.
