Greetings,
We wrapped up a 3D feature earlier this year and are preparing our next. I don't know that this topic really fits this exact forum name but perhaps someone here might have an answer for me. The question is: What light levels in foot/lamberts are people shooting for or grading for these days? We did our film at 3.5 ft/L for dailies and graded it at 4.5 ft/L. Someone I trust told me yesterday that features in production today are aiming for 10-12 ft/L because RealD's newer technology allows it. I don't think this is accurate because 1) Theaters are not going to burn their bulbs out so quickly even with the newer technology, 2) Dolby does not have this technology (I think) and they still account for a percentage of the theaters, 3) Existing 3D equipped theaters are not going to run out and repurchase new gear.

Anyone know about current or future light levels for 3D projection?
Thanks for any input on this.
