I have been reading a lot of comments about 3D, most of them are not in favor of it. As a 3D/2D video editor I'm very used to the negative reaction. But, there is one thing I will say, and I'm trying not to make any judgments here towards people. I have noticed that the majority of people that "Hate" 3D seem to only base this on the movies or from what others are telling them. Yes ,it's agreed, as a 3D advocate and 3D video editor I'm 100% agreeing with you ALL on this. The conversion movies that came out in 3D were absolutely terrible, just an atrocity and a total slander towards what 3D is supposed to look like. It takes time ,calculated decisions and a lot of dedication to make 3D work, this conversion stuff is pure garbage !! and to be honest it Infuriates me. I know it's hard not to hate 3D when Hollywood crams every half fast conversion down our throats, believe me I get it. I'm tired of it too, it makes guys like me who are trying to create 3D content look like fools. Who knows, maybe I am a fool for creating and perusing 3D content when it's so much easier to do 2D. I don't get paid to do these videos and I get very little exposer . In fact, if it wasn't for Youtube and Sony being absolutely amazing , I wouldn't even have made it this far. I could seriously kiss their feet right now. either way, bad 3D has created a stigma towards it in general that its only there to grab more money .It's terrible.

I have put so much time and effort in these videos to try and make them appealing to people ,and all i see is Hollywood slowly destroying this appeal. It's heart breaking . I understand your anger and I can't blame you. If I never actually played a game or watched a movie that utilizes good 3D, I would feel the same way. All I would ask, or suggest is to reserve judgment just long enough till you can get your hands on a 3D game and try it out for yourselves. try to keep in mind to ,that gaming in 3D and watching a movie in 3D are completely different experiences all together. if you had a bad experience watching a 3D movie, like 99% all have, don't let that bad experience transfer towards gaming in 3D. If done right , its great .
This brings me to why I stand beside Sonys efforts to support 3D, It's not just because this is my field, it's because I truly believe that 3D gaming is going to be the future. Of course, I don't think this is going to happen until all 3D TV's are glasses free mind you,but they are coming. Right now it's really hard to make a glasses free TV that's bigger then "22 inches. It's possible to do it, but the cost is to much. Sony has done a great job of consistently supporting 3D games and I know they are doing there best to help developers make the transition in 3D as easy as possible. They have made a real effort to pursue 3D and encourage people like me to make 3D videos and develop 3D games. It's from there support and determination that has helped fuel the creative aspects of 3D and stimulate interest towards it as a whole.This is why I support them.
