The best way I can describe the difference is this you have to see it. You don't realize what your missing until you have the experience. You know sometimes when you say something stupid without realizing it. Then your buddy smacks you in the forehead and all of a sudden it clicks. Oh yeah that was a pretty stupid thing to say. You have to go see an IMAX 3D movie before you get that smack on the forehead that snaps you out of it. Oh yeah I finally understand what I was missing. Bottom line go get smacked in the forehead see an IMAX 3D movie.
Now the comments are in 3D, as well?!
What IMAX theatre has the largest screen size in Las Vegas, NV?
The IMAX in Columbus, OH was huge - but here they are tiny by comparison,
Si, creo en el cine, como en todo lo que nos rodea, claro siempre, alguien se fija como podria tener algo perfecto? es superior a todo, un agradable momento que nos deja a nosotros, los cultores con una esperanza.
I have a question. I have never been inside the IMAX theater at Cinemark Theaters. Do they have stadium seating in IMAX? Is the sound too loud in IMAX?
IMAX and 3D are 2 different things, IMAX is filmed in 70 mm film (about twice the size of regular 35 mm film,) When film negitaves are larger you can put more information on each cell making the picture you see have amazing clarity, it's like hi-def TV) however, 3D is filmed with the idea that each eye when using special glasses can see a different depth, it's created with a tint that shows up only when wearing tinted glasses, try wearing 3D glasses watching a 3D movie and closing one eye and then the other, the 3D effect goes away as each eye closes, now if you use the larger IMAX film along with 3D you get an incredible picture quality along with life like 3 dimension as opposed to regular TV reception which is normally 2 D (dimension)..
Saw cowboys & aliens in both Imax and regular. What an adventure compared to just a movie.
You havn't explained the different ways that I-Max differ's from 2-D or 3-D???? Call me an old dummy but I would like to know in common languge.
I agree. What's difference? Imax 3d experience???? whats the difference?????????/
Um, didn't this photo gallery explain it? You just click through the photos and read the caption...
I don't understand either.
I am no techy by far, but I understood just fine. Instead of regular one projector they use two which enhances everything times two. And of course the screens are so much bigger and with 3D the things that jump out of the screen do not come out a little bit. Instead they come right out and into your face. Then with the Imax domes the movie screen is exaclty 360 degrees around you...put that with some 3D and your going to feel like your standing in the middle of the movie.
I work for a theatre that had an IMAX built on. I am in charge of projection, and understand the differences. First off, IMAX has both digital and film projectors (film is a pain in the a$$, but it IS better than digital IMAX). 2D IMAX plays through one (but sometimes two) of the two projectors. 3D IMAX plays through both, with a polarizer in the light's path creating the 3D effects. The glasses are polarized to match the polarizers on the projectors (try tilting your head to the side while wearing the glasses or wearing the glasses and look at a normal tv). 2D does not use polarizers. Each projector uses a 6000 Watt bulb (as opposed to 3000W-4200W in our regular auditoriums) and (ours) has 15000 Watts dishing out the audio.
