Fly Me to the Moon is a kids story about three flies that went aboard the Apollo 11 flight to the moon along with the first human astronauts that was first released beginning in 2008, but did not get that much attention. It is still aired in some countries in 3D cinemas, including the one I live in and although quite a bit hard to find, thanks to a guy in Nvidia’s forums we now have a stereoscopic 3D version of the trailer fro the movie. The movie comes in animated 3D and in stereoscopic 3D and although it is rated for kids of 3+ years it is still fun to watch even by adults, especially the ones that are interested in S3D and now with “the right” trailer you can get a nice feel on what to expect from the movie right on your PC equipped with GeForce 3D Vision or some other Stereo 3D viewing setup…

The trailer is in 720p (1280×720 resolution) with the two frames not in the typical Side by Side format, but in Over/Under format. So when viewing with NVIDIA’s Stereoscopic 3D Video Player you need to select the Left image on top and the right at the bottom for optimum results. And please share your experience if you watch the trailer and on what S3D system are you doing it…

James Cameron’s Avatar Movie Official Trailer in SD and HD

August 20th, 2009 · No Comments · 3D Movies & Videos


Finally the official trailer of the much anticipated James Cameron’s Avatar Movie is available and it looks just great, but unfortunately there is still no Stereo 3D (S3D) version of the trailer available! You can download the normal version of the trailer or in HD resolutions from the links below… and we are waiting for Stereo 3D trailer to be able to really get an idea what to expect on December 18th, because the movie Avatar will be in Stereo 3D. According to the official website tomorrow (August 21st) they should start airing the S3D trailer in selected IMAX 3D cinemas, but we also want an online version that we can try on GeForce 3D Vision and/or other S3D setup we all have… ;)

How to Watch 3D Stereo Movies with GeForce 3D Vision

June 20th, 2009 · 12 Comments · 3D Movies & Videos, GeForce 3D Vision

You should know that GeForce 3D Vision is not only intended to be used just for gaming, but also for watching 3D Stereo digital images and even for 3D movies. But in order to use the shutter glasses for watching moves you should first get a special player that can play 3D stereo movies the right way and they you should get movies that are supported. Nvidia provides a free Stereoscopic 3D Video Player that should be more than enough to get you started in the world of 3D movies, but there are also some other solutions that I’m going to talk about some other time. Nivida’s Stereoscopic 3D Video Player has built in support for playing back 3D Stereo videos in the following file formats: AVI, AVIS, WMV, WMVS, ASF, MPG, MPGS, MPEG, M1V, MP2, M2TS, VOB, MP4, SVI and SPP. There is also support for playing 3D Stereo movies in DVD Video format if you own any of these of course and they are in the right format. And by the right format I mean movies that are not encoded for anaglyph viewing, but provide a video with two full separate frames for each eye. You should know that most of the DVD video 3D movies are designed for paper anaglyph glasses and these will not work with the shutter glasses form the GeForce 3D Vision kit!

To get you started there are some short videos in 3D Stereo that are looking quite well when played with the Stereoscopic 3D Video Player and the GeForce 3D Vision kit. There are 6 short movies, two of which are animated and the other 4 are of different real world scenes and places so you can actually see the difference. You can also look around over the net for more compatible videos, these should be quite a few more that will look and work great with the added depth perception. Have in mind that all those videos can be viewed in normal 2D mode on a normal or 3D-compatible monitor and in 3D Stereo only on a compatible display. When you run the player and a movie on a Samsung 2233RZ for instance when you switch to full screen the movies automatically goes in 3D mode, otherwise when it is being displayed in a small window it is in 2D mode by default.
