    I rarely remember my dreams, but the other night I had a dream and I remember that it was like I was watching a 2.35 movie. I don't remember what it was about.

    So, those of you who remember your dreams more often than me, do you dream w/ peripheral vision (1st person) or in some other way?

    1st person, full peripheral vision in color for me. However, surround sound isn't as apparent unless I'm in the sleep paralysis state!

    But, when I do have full surround sound it is pretty cool -- better than any of the DTS trailers for sure. [​IMG]

    I dream in 3-strip Cinerama, without the lines. [​IMG]

    2.35:1 but my convergence is always a bit off, not to mention NO where near 6500K. I wonder if I can get my Medulla Oblangotta put up to ISF spec's.

    I'd say I dream in an aspect ratio about the same as my normal vision. Which is about 16:9 I believe.

    I wonder what frame our vision really is, they should make a tv in that aspect ratio

    IMAX plus (ie 360 x 360 x360) for visuals. But, come to think of it (great thread), very little sound. Bloody Bose dreams, I guess.

    Sometimes a floating camera angle if I fly.

    But not too much focus on convergence or calibration in the dreams. Ahem.

    I called my doctor to make an appointment, I'm dreaming in VHS format. How do I get DVD? No wonder I have trouble remembering them, I need higher resolution dreams.

    For some reason my dreams are always in black and white. I mean I can sense that something is a certian color, but I don't see it being that color when I dream. It is really strange.

    I dream like I see when I'm awake. I guess it'd be first person/fullframe.

    It would probably be 1.33:1 pan and scan... [​IMG]

    Seriously, I dream in first person, and whatever my normal eyesight is.

    I think our vision is closer to widescreen. I mean consider how limited your vertical vision is limited(without moving your eyes) compared to your perepheral vision.

    Your eyeballs are round so how can you see more to the sides than the top and bottom? I can see just as far top and bottom as I can side to side.

    Anyways, my dreams always start off the same:
    "Warning, this dream has been formatted to fit your brain"



    p.s. As long as there are no black bars, I'm fine [​IMG]

    Probably around 1.85:1, color but very faint, like the contrast color is to low. I also very often dream like a movie is edited, going back and forth between different camera angles and in between 1st and 3rd person.
