The name of the IMAX film is: The Journey of Man.
I went to see the film because I had heard that the 3d was incredible. So I go there and view the film with JIm Peters and we watched it. The 3D is
awesome. They had the shutter glasses and this film was just fantastic. Things right there up close and popping out at you.
So we watched it and that was it. Then one about a year later, it was showing again. I went to see it again. Then as I sat there viewing the statues
scene, I saw it. ZIP it passed by once and that was it, but in 3D!
I saw a Rod in 3D on IMAX Film!
I had to wait for the second screening to be able to see it again. ZIP there it was again. This time I was waiting for it. No one else in the theater
saw this! I was so excited. You don't know what this means! A Rod shot in 3D on IMAX Film! Absolute evidence of something long, orange in color and
traveling at a high velocity across the scene! What was great seeing it in 3D was the depth. It was "right there!"
3D as you now will enable us to get accurate measurements of size / length, distance from the camera, distance for the subjects in the scene, and
velocity. I watched the film seven times that day and the next. Not one person was seeing this.
SO I contacted the a processing house and asked how much it would cost to transfer a minute of IMAX film to digital Beta. The transfer from the
negative is about $ 30,000.00. I needed both shots.
$ 60,000.00 to transfer the footage from both negatives to digital beta so that I could get my hands on it and find out how long and thick this this
was, and how fast it was traveling, how far it was from the two actors and the cameras.
This footage being presented here was taken from the DVD, which has copy guard, and I would like to explain something about video transferring.
Depending on which deck you are using, sometimes, when you transfer video from a DVD for example, you may catch either the object in one sequence of
What I have to do in order to record from the DVD I have to record it first to a DV Cam deck.
When I see the playback of the very same clip on the dv Cam tape, I am getting a different set of frames captured on playback.
So in this clip, you are seeing only one field where the object appears n four fields or two frames. I hope I am not confusing you. I want to get the
digital beta transfers made. Send them to Bruce Macabbe and Jim Diletosso and let them bring forth the data from the 3D information. One of these days
this will happen. I was hoping all the networks would do this, but they never have enough money in their budgets. So goes the saga.
