Event 6–8pm (registration 5:30)

The conventional wisdom in the film industry and popular press seems to be that the only way to produce a quality stereoscopic 3D film is to shoot with native stereo camera rigs. Stereoscopic 3D post-conversion is generally looked upon as a lower-quality alternative. We contend that 3D conversion can produce high quality results; in fact a more useful conversation is “what is the right tool for the job?”

Tim Bennison and Mark Lasoff from Vancouver-based Gener8 will present an overview of their company’s stereo conversion work on such film franchises as Harry Potter, Priest, and Ghost Rider. They will give a backgrounder on the state of the conversion industry and then describe Gener8’s conversion process. They will also be discussing production issues such as integrating conversion with visual effects and native stereo 3D shots, and the logistics of converting a full-length feature film.
