Thanks a lot for the explanation! I know that you could shed some more light to it and know what is talking about it
I asked because J J Abrams in a interview
when questioned about shooting Star Trek 2 in 3D? then he says:
and I wonder what benefits would bring even to a 2D format as far as the viewer is concerned. As far I can see from your reply , you can cover more but again you have to go back to wide screen. Anyway, still not clear with benefits besides the nostalgic flair in Super 8 lol. Maybe you can elaborate more
In this interview J J seems to indicate that the studios will be making the conversion on their own
I did not fight for the 3D. It was something that the studio wanted to do, and I didn’t want to do it. And then, when I saw the first movie converted in sections, I thought that it actually looked really cool. So, I was okay with their doing it, as long as I could shoot the movie the way I wanted to, in anamorphic film, and then let them convert it. So, those who want to see it in 3D, which looked pretty cool, can do it, and those that want to see it in 2D can do that too.
Anyway lately I have been reading that J J refers that he is converting from IMAX (even we know that he did not shoot the whole movie in IMAX film) to 3D and he is having fun in the process lol. I just hope that he is truly as enthusiastic with this as he says and the conversion gives acceptable results
