Avatar is Nvidia's wet dream

Avatar is the hottest movie that's currently airing in cinemas and Hollywood likes it since it can charge you additional €1 for 3D glasses. Even more so, if you go to Imax they will top it with an extra €3 fee.

Its been more than a month since the movie started and we’ve decided to see the movie and this is a quick verdict.

The 3D, something that Nvidia cares and pushes really well, looks good. It's not great, but on some scenes it really looks impressive. We’ve been watching people in cinema and listening to the comments after the movie and for a big majority this was the best movie ever.


The reason? 3D looks great, especially if this was the first time you've seen it. Since I’ve seen some good 3D back in 1999 more than ten years ago, with Nvidia TNT 2 Ultra from Asus and donkey 3D glasses that would make your eyes hurt for a while, this 3D was not that special to me.

Of course in 2010, these things do look much better but with Nvidia’s active 3D glasses, things tend to look even better. Of course, the downside is the 120Hz monitor, something you need in order to make Nvidia’s 3D stereo to work.

The bad thing about the movie is that when you look over the fact that millions of hours went in 3D in order to create a little miracle in 3D, the acting is below average and the b-production acting and actors didn’t really help. Yes we do know that they are 3D, but motion capturing is usually done on real actors, and so are the voices.

Do we even need to mention that the whole idea is "borrowed" from Pocahontas? We don’t even need to go there.

If you like 3D, only care about effects and want to see the world in 3D, this is a movie for you. If you like a quality story-line and quality acting you probably want to stay away from it. We still suggest you to go and see it and make up your mind, but this movie is something that comes in perfect time for Nvidia as this company can really make a real case about it.

ATI still doesn’t have any 3D and it would probably take years to catch up with Nvidia on it, so for the time being, gaming 3D and all around it will remain Nvidia's playground.

wet dream

ATI already has stereoscopic 3D support on FireGL/FirePro cards a long time ago, AMD's just waiting for 3rd party glasses to be launched, so that they can launch their support for 3D glasses.

Correct me if I am wrong: I don't see how Avatar's 3D is related to NV. The movie may have used NV cards for the rendering, however, the 3D mode should be done by some other technology that is standard for the movie industry.

我估篇野想講: avatar帶起左3d熱潮,nv既3d功能會係一個優勢

ATI都玩3d

I like the Nvidia approach better; pick up a 120hz monitor (any brand),  get the 3D Vision kit, and you're set to go, a lot more flexible.  AMD requires you to get a iZ3D monitor and 3rd party software as they don't have their own.

N的3d都係要自備mon~.~
同埋ati好似只用到2色鏡的3d
