Booo...

Another retrofit.

Something not envisioned in 3D...
Filmed for usage in 3D...

IMHO, this type of 3D coversion is going to look as bad as when they colorized B&W programs.

I also agree with you guys. I just felt it was news-worthy enough to post.

Maybe yes, maybe no. From http://www.thedigita...com/#mytwocents

Well... I suppose the big news today is that George Lucas has revealed that he and his team at Lucasfilm are indeed hard at work on 3D conversions of all six Star Wars film. Each will be released in theaters in series order, starting with Episode I in 2012. Word is they'll be done right, ILM is taking its time, etc


If anyone can do it right it would be the folks at ILM.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

I saw a 3D demo of Star Wars EP IV a few years ago and it was quite good. Also with the abundance of computer generated images in EP 1,2 and 3, all they would have to do is re-render everything in 3D (assuming they still have the elements).
