    From Moe's post: I just upgraded to a 65” LG 4K OLED with passive 3D. Compared to my 3 earlier DLP RP sets, I definitely am getting crosstalk which I’d understood was “solved” with the 4K panels. It’s still watchable and I love how much brighter it is but still disappointing.

    I have exactly that same display, and I have absolutely ZERO crosstalk 99% of the time. Your sitting angle will affect how much crosstalk you encounter, just as much vertically as horizontally. Experiment.

    And the way the 3D film was photographed can affect your experience, too. Comin' at Ya! has some minor crosstalk in extreme close-ups. It's the only real crosstalk I've experienced on my OLED.

    “Minor” seems very generous on that title; that was a full on misalignment “feels like someone is stabbing a pencil into my brain through my eyeball” kind of experience for me.

    "Comin' at Ya" is definitely hard on the eye muscles.
    I don't recall it being like that in the cinema but my eyes were somewhat younger then.
    If this is the restored version, complete with crap all over the screen at times, I dread to think what it was like before.

    Planning to watch The Grinch 3D tonight.

    Have 3D's of Aladdin, Avengers: Endgame, and Hobbs & Shaw on the way. Need to order Abominable at some point.

    Keep an eye out for the bad 3D sync in a couple of places with the Grinch.

    Yeah, I've watched it once before. Disappointing, but at least it's just a brief scene or two (which makes one wonder how it even happened).

    Ahh right, yes it does seem odd why it happened, dissapointing they didn't fix it but no do that would be very expensive. It's s good little film.

    SAW 3D:THE FINAL CHAPTER is pretty good Martin. If you liked the others in the series, it was on par with them. The 3D was good too. :3dglasses:

    I don't mean to poo-poo on your parade. I mean, it's great you can get this on 3D.

    But why?

    These films aren't lensed for 3D. All they did was upconvert it so basically the only effect you are getting is depth.

    I would rather own a 4k version of this title than be unimpressed with an upconverted title.

    That is why I think this format died long ago. Nothing is being created for it anymore.

    Again, I don't mean to come across negatively, but I am sort of curious as to why these upconverted titles not originally meant for the format are desirable.

    Assuming I'm not missing a different point or misunderstanding your post

    And the 3D people ask -- why do you want to buy a 4K disc that's just an upscale from 2K master? Isn't that a waste.

    And the answer to both -- they look and feel better to "generic me who bought and watched them" than the alternative.

    Quite a lot of the 3D conversions look every bit as good or better than the native 3D films so I've never gotten that argument. I'm not talking about those German Autoconversions, but a conversions that was planned and done with proper input from the creators

    The True vs Converted 3D list is no more useful (to me) than the Real vs Fake 4K list.

    I'm still not entirely sure how you natively lens an animated 3D film or a film that is 90% special effects, CGI, Green Screen.

    Aren't the vast majority of 3D films relased in the last several years conversions? You can probably count on one hand the number of recent feature films shot with actual 3D cameras. If you limit yourself to those titles, it's probably not worth investing in the hardware.
