These shots already use 2 to 3 times more parallax than is comfortable and enjoyable to adult eyes, so for 3-5 year olds the parallax values exceed comfortable levels by 4.5 to 6.5 times. These shots really do create decoupling and divergence and I would personally request a rework (post fixing) of these shots to present them to children happily and safely, had I been asked to do 3-D QC on this production.
It is either a massive oversight or who knows, there may be a conflict of interest at play here. If that is so, there will probably never be an admission to the existence of problems by the big players of the 3-D film industry. What is 3D@Home promoting and who are their subsidiaries? 3-D content viewing at home and its 3DTV screens. What is the AOA selling? 36,000 American optometrists and their check-up services. And what am I selling here then? 3-D Quality Consultation and Certification from the perspective of end user enjoyment.
3D ROI comes from positive viewer enjoyment and word of mouth, not from talking straight a crooked product at TV conferences. At the end of the day it really is not necessary to present your audience with problematic 3-D imagery - just a matter of proper planning and keeping your true audience in mind at all times.
