Big TV-Screen companies like LG, Sony, Samsung and Sharp have announced that they'll discontinue to produce 3D-TV's.

What impact does it have to small independent film producers, that produce 3D films? How are you able to set up and test your 3D footage, before showing in in Theaters and festivals?

Do you have to keep using "old" monitors and screens or will Screens in "the normal" (affordable) price range still be avavable to the public? (Does a company have annunced to keep continuing screens no matter what?)

  • What 'small, independent film producer' produces in 3D?

  • There are a variety of film producers doing that. There are even 3D rigs as far back as the GoPro Heron 2 (for action cams). And if you have the knowlege and 2 idenical cameras, virtually everyone can do it. However you need a 3D Monitor to composit it.

Some are using VR headsets, some work with anaglyph glasses. With some plug-ins (such as the Dashwood 360 VR Toolbox, as one example), you can use popular headsets like the Oculus Rift. But many will convert the left and right eye to red/cyan and blend them so you can use those silly paper glasses from your childhood. Simple, but effective!
