    I have no option but to watch in 2D as 3D does not work for me as I only have one eye

    3D at home

    As my 55" 4K Samsung Quontom Dot TV is one of the best to view 3D on, 3D is Awesome at home with 3D active shutter glasses. I have always bought 4K 3D Blu-Ray since having this TV, I have bought 8 extra pairs of 3D Active Shutter Glasses as when I buy a new Blu-Ray title in 3D it's so good we make it a family night in, AWESOME!!

    2D - no vision in one eye to speak of so 3D worthless imo.

    2D for normal movies.
    VR for hoo-ha

    Re: QOTW: How do you prefer to watch movies: 2D or 3D?

    I have old eyes and wearing sun glassing to see a movie just seems stupid and significantly reduces my enjoyment. When I am forced to wear sun glasses in a movie I take them off for 90% of the 2D movie and only wear them for the few minutes of 3D. But I try to avoid 3D at all costs.

    Re: QOTW: How do you prefer to watch movies: 2D or 3D?

    I wouldn't invest in a 3D TV at home due to living room layout, unless I built a cinema room, and could therefore be certain of sitting directly in front of the screen.

    At the Cinema, I don't care either way. I have a Cineworld membership so no additional cost for me whichever format I go for, so I just go for whatever time the showing is that suits.

    I wear glasses, as am short sighted. It was awkward putting glasses on top of glasses, but now I've got some clip-ons for the occaision when I go to see a 3D movie, so not an issue!

    I really don't care for 3D either way though. Some scenes look good at the start of a movie, but once my eyes get used to it, I don't really notice that I'm watching 3D.

    Re: QOTW: How do you prefer to watch movies: 2D or 3D?

    I wear glasses. I am old. I still love properly done 3D.... can I have all y'all's 3D tech that y'all guys don't want? RGB LEDs a bonus!!

    3D has been around since the 1950s. It's just people not taking it seriously that is the problem. I'm still waiting for Sony or whoever it was to bring out their tech that uses variable colour wavelength to create glasses-free 3D... that or user-selectable 360º holographic imaging.

    So do people with only one working ear feel the same about Surround Sound?

    If on a normal screen it has to be 2D as the coating on my prescription glasses seems to mess with Real3D and all I see is a blurry picture.
    However on IMAX I dont mind 3D as my glasses dont affect it and it gives the film a sense of depth rather than things flying out at you.

    You can have all mine. Don't get over-excited though. It amounts to .... ummm nothing.

    No. It's that it gives me a headache within minutes, and a stinking headache, of migraine order, if I persist. And I'm far from the only one.

    Now, it may work fine for some people. Is age a factor? Possibly, but probably not by itself. Wearing glasses? Again, possibly, but probably not on its own. Some other eye problems? Very probably.

    It might be a minority, but enough people have reported significant problems that for them at least, it's NOT just that they aren't taking it seriosly.If it doesn't adversely affect you, and you like it, great. But for me, at least in the several variants i have tried over the years, it's a complete non-starter.

    Dunno. Both my ears work reasonably well. But I doubt it'd have the same degree of effect.

    Interesting that you like action films in 3D, when action scenes are often where film makers make the most mistakes/errors/utter screw-ups in applying their 3D... Especially the more obvious mistakes. The action scenes in The Hobbit 3D are a very good example.

    Most commonly this is because the 3D has not been filmed/produced correctly. In some cases it's the screening equipment not properly calibrated. It's comparatively rare for people to just be outside the 'average range' for which 3D is calibrated to... The rapidity and severity of your symptoms seem to support my assertion, as well.

    Not unless you have severe degradation and have slipped outside the ranges for which the tech caters. But then, you'll probably have issues, difficulties or niggles with visual things in normal life, too.

    Not really. I wear them.
    Unless the glasses correct an unusual or severe defect, which is then counter-corrected somehow... I can only think that your particular make/model of glasses interfere with the positioning of the 3D glasses/headset/whatever. Again, mine are fine with the cheapy circular polarisation things at the kinohaus, but I wear £20 Specsaver specials. The wife has some designer brand that cost her something with two zeros on the end!!

    If it's not the tech setup, or a large combination of factors, then quite possible. Friend of mine has a detatched/floating retinal nerve or summat, which means his vision in just that one eye fades between utterly perfect and blurry as heck, at random times.
    When his eye works, he adores VR games. When it doesn't, he stops for a while.

    By not taking it seriously, I mean producers not taking the proper steps to correctly apply 3D in the making and producing of the content, which accounts for a great percentage of the problems audiences experience. Part of the issue is that the content needs to be planned in 3D from the very start.

    The frustration for me and for my friends in the insdustry is that this is nothing new. The MkI Eyeball has not changed, been upgraded or anything and neither have the underlying principles of 3D imagery - The tech that is used to create it may have improved since the 1950s, but it still does and must continue to do the same thing.

    I love 3D and would hate to see it die out just because content producers are too lazy to do their jobs properly.

    Why would it not have the same degree of effect?

    Just been at the shops looking at TVs, and whilst I was looking at the lower ~£400 end of the market I didn't notice any 3D TVs there at all. If 3D TVs are dead (which they seem to be) then I wonder how that affects the money that will be put into 3D movies if they can't be sold into houses on 3D bluray or rental when it had left the theatre.
