Request on 2D to 3D conversions

Hi guys, JFC here. I thought I would write an article explaining a bit about how the request system works, for those that are frustrated their favourite films are not getting converted. To offer your film in 3D, follow this link - t.me/club3dhd

2D-3D conversion has increasingly grown in popularity since I began converting films. As a person who specializes in converting 2D films to 3D, I am well aware of the ins and outs of this process.
However, I am frequently asked why I haven't converted a particular film to 3D yet. This article aims to address those concerns and provide some insight into the factors that influence my decisions.

Limited Capacity:

The first and foremost reason is the inherent limitation of my capacity as an individual and the constraints posed by my current hardware setup. I can only work on one film at a time, and the conversion process is intricate and time-consuming, requiring careful attention to detail and a deep understanding of various technical aspects, as these are not your automatic conversions, these are carefully put together.
In addition to personal capacity, limited CPU, GPU, and RAM resources contribute to the slower speed of conversions. The 3D conversion process is computationally intensive, and optimizing the use of my hardware is crucial to achieving high-quality results. As a result, I need to spend extra time refining my methods and techniques to extract the maximum performance from my existing hardware, which further adds to the time required for each conversion.
However, I recognize the importance of upgrading my hardware to enhance the efficiency and quality of my work. I am actively working towards gaining more advanced equipment to help me convert films at a faster pace and with even better results. Once I am able to secure the necessary resources and upgrade my hardware, I expect to see an improvement in the speed and quality of the 3D conversions, ultimately benefiting the audience and increasing the range of films that can be converted.
Think of it in Iron Man terms, you're witnessing a prototype develop and grow, this process will get faster as I optimize and get faster at identifying faults, fixing things etc.
I am not interested in sending through sub-par low quality conversions, if low quality conversions are your thing then there's plenty of automatic software out there that will allow you to make low quality, unwatchable 3D films, but this is not for me. 

Considering Votes and Requests:

To make the conversion process more democratic and cater to the preferences of a broader audience, I take into consideration votes and requests from movie enthusiasts. This helps me prioritize which films to work on, based on the level of interest and demand from the audience. Consequently, it may take longer for a specific film to be converted if it does not receive a sufficient number of votes or requests compared to other movies.
However, it is essential to recognize that taste in film is subjective, and what one person might consider a cinematic masterpiece, another might dismiss as a terrible movie. Balancing these differing opinions is a challenge I face when deciding which films to convert. The films I convert might not always align with your personal preferences, but they may be someone else's favorite. Similarly, the films you want to see in 3D might not hold the same appeal for others.
In this context, patience plays a crucial role. It is important for movie enthusiasts to understand that their favorite film may not be at the top of the priority list for conversion due to differing opinions and preferences. However, I continually strive to offer a diverse range of films in 3D, ensuring that various tastes and interests are catered to over time. By being patient and understanding the challenges associated with catering to a diverse audience, movie lovers can rest assured that I am committed to providing an engaging 3D experience for a wide range of films.

Cinematography Matters:

The process of converting a 2D film to 3D is not as simple as adding an extra layer of depth to the original footage. Each film has its unique cinematography, and some movies are better suited for 3D conversion than others. A well-crafted 3D experience requires a film with a strong visual narrative that can benefit from the added depth and immersion that 3D offers. In some cases, a film might not be suitable for conversion due to its visual style or the way it was originally shot.
When assessing a film's potential for 3D conversion, several factors must be taken into account. These factors include the movie's composition, use of depth of field, camera movement, and color grading. A film with dynamic compositions and a strong depth of field will translate better into a 3D experience, whereas a movie with flatter visuals or limited depth might not benefit significantly from the conversion process.
Additionally, the original camera movement and editing techniques play a significant role in determining a film's suitability for 3D conversion. Films that employ smooth camera movements, longer shots, and more deliberate editing choices can create a more enjoyable and immersive 3D experience.
Moreover, the color grading of a film can also influence its potential for 3D conversion. A movie with a high contrast and a diverse color palette can benefit from the added depth that 3D offers, enhancing the visual storytelling and making the viewing experience more engaging. In contrast, a film with a muted color palette or low contrast might not see significant improvements from the 3D conversion process.
By carefully evaluating these cinematographic aspects, I can determine which films are most likely to benefit from the 3D treatment, ensuring that the end result is a high-quality and immersive viewing experience for the audience. This focus on cinematography allows me to prioritize films that are well-suited for 3D conversion, ultimately providing a more satisfying and engaging experience for movie enthusiasts.

Box Office Earnings:

While the primary goal of converting films to 3D is to offer an enhanced and immersive viewing experience for the audience, it is also crucial to consider the potential impact of these conversions on the broader film community. Box office earnings often serve as an indicator of a movie's popularity and demand, providing valuable insights into which films are likely to be well-received by a larger audience.
By focusing on films that have performed well at the box office, I am able to ensure that the 3D conversions cater to a wider audience, generating interest and enthusiasm for this format. This approach helps to promote the continued growth and development of 3D technology within the film industry, as it demonstrates the potential for enhanced viewer experiences and encourages filmmakers to consider the possibilities offered by this format in their future projects.
By converting successful films, I can contribute to the preservation and celebration of popular cinema. Converting these films to 3D allows them to be experienced in a new and exciting way, potentially introducing them to a new generation of moviegoers or reigniting the passion of long-time fans. This focus on popular films also helps to maintain a diverse range of 3D offerings, ensuring that different genres, styles, and eras of cinema are represented within the growing library of 3D films.

Two 3D Films per Week: 

One notable aspect of my work is the pace at which I produce 3D film conversions. I currently output two high quality 3D films every week, which is more than what major studios offer. This commitment to providing a steady stream of 3D content demonstrates my dedication to offering a diverse and engaging movie-watching experience for my audience.
The fact that I am able to convert films at this rate, despite the challenges associated with limited capacity, hardware constraints, and the need to balance various factors in my decision-making process, is an important note when considering the films you receive on a weekly basis.
Professional studios tend to focus only on converting high-grossing, blockbuster films with mass appeal. In contrast, I am committed to offering a diverse range of 3D films, covering various genres, styles, and levels of popularity. This means that even lesser-known cult-favourite films have a chance of being converted by me.


Dealing with rude comments and harassment over the choice of films to convert can have a significant negative impact on my passion for the art of 3D conversion. Such behavior demonstrates a lack of understanding of the challenges involved in the process, as well as a disregard for the time, effort, and dedication required to complete these conversions.
When faced with hostile and ungrateful reactions, it can become increasingly difficult to maintain the enthusiasm and motivation necessary for continued progress in the field. Rather than fostering a supportive and appreciative atmosphere that encourages growth, creativity, and innovation, these negative interactions can lead to feelings of discouragement and frustration, potentially stifering the development of new techniques and ideas.
While it might take years for a studio to convert a film to 3D—if they choose to do so at all—I strive to provide a consistent and diverse range of 3D content for audiences to enjoy. The expectation of instant gratification, coupled with the lack of gratitude for the work already completed, is an unfair and unreasonable demand.
Instead of resorting to negative comments and harassment, it is crucial for movie enthusiasts to cultivate patience, understanding, and appreciation for the efforts being made to bring their favorite films to life in 3D. By fostering a positive and supportive environment, we can encourage further advancements in the field of 3D conversion and ensure that the art continues to thrive, providing audiences with an ever-growing selection of immersive and engaging cinematic experiences.
