I like GDW's idea of having 3D "segments," such as the performances.

Alternately, if there's enough space on the DVD, maybe you could include identical content in both 2D and 3D formats, as selected via the menu. If there isn't enough room on a single disc, then maybe put two discs in the box, one in each format.

If you sell the the 2D and 3D discs separately, you may find you have unsold inventory of one or the other. It would be hard to guess how many to print of each, I'd imagine, since this project is a bit of a first. Really doubt that anyone other than die-hard collectors would purchase both.

Assuming this will be viewable on a regular HDTV with special lenses, it would be nice to have two sets of lenses in the box, in case one gets lost/worn out/destroyed, etc.


These are very nice and valid suggestions, thank you!

I don't know that it would add anything to the learning experence, I assume the price of the DVD would reflect the extra costs involved in filming in 3D?

The only advantage I could see is if it could give you an idea about the angle restrictions of an effect.
I suspect that information can not be gleaned from a 3D video, however.

Also, I have to say I hate wearing my 3D glasses. I've got a fairly early Panasonic model so they're heavy and particularly uncomfortable when worn over regular glasses.

Went to Best Buy last weekend with my son and checked out one of the new LG 3D TV's. Have to say it was the absolute best 3D experience I've ever had. Been a fan of 3D since the early 1970's, when the art houses were showing periodic rereleases of the old 3D movies (Creature from the Black Lagoon, House of Wax, etc.) Too bad the TV was $1,800. Once the price point gets to half of that, I'll definitely be interested. Unlike at the movie theaters, the close up experience actually seems like real 3D. I was reaching out and trying to touch a tortilla chip flying through the air in the Yogi Bear BluRay video. So yes, I'll be interested (eventually...) in anything filmed in BluRay 3D, magic or not.

Well. If you want to watch the video while practicing along it may be confusing looking through the glasses on the screen and then on your hands. Smile

Last week I went to the cinema to see Prometheus, and when we got there it was in 3d and I thought, "oh cool - an alien movie, in space, in 3D: that'll look great!" and happily parted with the extra cash. I cannot imagine happily parting with hard-earned in order to see some dude tearing and restoring something in 3D. As it is, half the time I think the explanations on DVDs would be better in magazines anyway...

3D brings nothing to the magical instruction party.

Will this be available in both 3D and smell-a-vision? There's just something about the aroma of silver dollars in a 3-fly routine!

You got me thinking.. I should somehow include the amazing smell of burnt flash paper and worn out cards, touched by the spectators way too many times.

Watching 3D on a Television set:-

3D with glasses (of any kind) - NO

3D Autostereoscopic (i.e. 3D without glasses) - OK

3D Magic video (with or without glasses) - NO

Dude GO FOR IT! INTERESTED!

Contrary to what many members are saying here, 3D technology is evolving and it isn't just all bell and whistles. There are beneficial learning outcomes from 3D virtual environments. I suggest you research "3D Learning Environments" at a University library and you will find support and techniques for your project. Don't let the Café criticism hold you back! The naive criticism from the members reminds me of a quote from Henry Ford (although it's being debated) "If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses."

Cheers,

Nothing really new here: my books (hint, hint!) are already produced in 3D. Smile

If the 3D DVD is more expensive then the 2D version no thank you. But it all depends on the effect(s) you're putting on the disc of course.
