Yep! that's RIGHT! For a very limited 'time' then it will be once again for THIS and in "3-Ds"! Now, I'd like to watch that some in this manner, and how about YOU?

I drove my wife crazy trying to get to the theaters last year to see this. We made it (and happily had "This Is Halloween" lodged in our heads for the next three days), and I'm glad to see it's returning. The movie is OK, as is, but in 3D, it ROCKS.

It's done post-production, and uses the same methods used for most of the 3D movies now, including Superman Returns:

Excellent. I saw the original when it came out. Later, as I found the wonder of my life, Ruth, I knew she would love this film. It is just so her. It is her favorite film, so thanks for the heads up on this.

Thanks for the link! It adequately describes the projection process, but I was also wondering how they made the source material three-dimensional. Where did they get images from the perspective of the "other" eye?

I understand how they would remaster CGI for 3D: Just rerender with two slightly different viewpoints. (After all, the computer model is 3D to begin with, then mathematically projected onto a 2D view plane.)

And if you're filming for 3D, just use two cameras that are offset a few inches.

But how do you take 2D film from a decade ago and add a third dimension?

One of the things that I love about Nightmare is that it's stop motion animation - real film of real objects. When you see shadows and reflections and stuff, they're real! I'm concerned that this magical new 3D version will be all digitalified (I invented a new word there) and look less realistic than before.
