Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs Stereoscopic 3D Trailer

August 5th, 2010 · 2 Comments · 3D Movies & Videos


The movie Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs is still pretty much the one and only Blu-ray 3D movie so far that you can actually purchase separately and not as a bundle with some hardware by Panasonic, Sony or any other brand making 3D-capable products. If you are wondering what you can expect from the Blu-ray 3D version of the movie, then the stereoscopic 3D trailer shared by twisterbr might be able to give you an idea how Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs will look on your 3D PC or 3D TV. The video is in Side by Side format, 1080p half horizontal resolution (squashed), so you’ll need to select 16:9 aspect ratio when opening it in the 3D Vision Video Player or the Stereoscopic Player. If you download and watch the trailer feel free to share your comments about it below…

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs Blu-ray 3D on June 22nd

June 10th, 2010 · 14 Comments · 3D Movies & Videos


Now we have a final date when the first standalone Blu-ray 3D movie will be available and that is June 22nd in USA (and even earlier in Europe – 11th for Germany, 14th for UK etc.), for the Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs Blu-ray 3D release. Up until now we only had bundles of Blu-ray 3D movies with different 3D HDTVs being sold or Blu-ray 3D hardware players. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs Blu-ray 3D is already up for pre-order at Amazon with a price of $35.99 USD and I’m pretty sure that others will follow very soon. Bad news for Avatar fans though, you’ll still have to wait for most likely a next year standalone release, as the November release will be bundled only with new 3D HDTVs as currently Samsung and Panasonic are offering some movies bundles. So stay tuned for more movies being released on Bly-ray 3D, and you can already get the ArcSoft TMT3 Platinum + Sim3D plugin with Blu-ray 3D support on the PC and CyberLink will soon have the PowerDVD 10 Ultra Mark II update with Blu-ray 3D support that could happen as early as beginning of July…

Don’t Miss Sony and 3D World Magazine’s Sterescopic 3D Shorts Contest

June 7th, 2010 · No Comments · Stereo 3D Events


An important reminder for those of you that are making short 3D videos, you have just about one more month left before the Sterescopic 3D short video competition organized by Sony and 3D World Magazine stops accepting entries. The competition is open to all worldwide residents of 16 years and over, capable of producing a stereo 3D video sequence – be it a new short from scratch or re-rendering an existing project in stereo 3D. The closing date for entries is Friday, July 9th, 2010 and after that the judging begins. The live judging event will take place in mid July and the winner will be announced at SIGGRAPH on July 25th.

The 10 best entries selected will be included on a Blu-ray Disc used to demonstrate Sony’s new 3D TVs in stores all around the world and will be provided free of charge to the several million purchases of a 3D Bravia expected in 2010. The three best entries will win a brand new Sony Bravia 3D HD TV with active shutter glasses and a BDV-F700 Blu-ray disc home cinema system. Seven runners-up will each win a Sony Bravia LX900 3D HD TV. The next 50 entries will each get a copy of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs when the 3D Blu-ray version of the movie is released…

Meanwhile Sony and 3D World magazine just revealed the judging panel that will have the honor of choosing the winners of the competition. The judging panel will shortlist the ten 3D films that will be showcased in every BRAVIA 3D TV sold in the world, providing them with unprecedented global exposure. The panel includes 3D World editor Steve Jarratt; Buzz Hays, Executive Stereoscopic 3D Producer, Sony 3D Technology Center in California; Jonathan Davies, Head of 3D Production at The Moving Picture Company; writer and director Julian Napier and Lee Danskin, Training Development Director at Escape Studios. So you can be rest assured that your work will be judged by professionals and it will receive the recognition it really deserves no matter if it is a good or bad one ;)
