That certainly explains why there was varying qualities of 3D within the film itself.  Some CGI did look fine, others looked really bad, but most was kind of...not good.

For instance I can recall back to the dust/fog.  I noticed the 3D effect was better on them later in the film.  Earlier in the film it just looked like a blur, out-of-focus smudge on the screen.  Would that just be quality control?  I chalked it up to my eyes adjusting since it was my first time.  I simply couldn't decide what I should be focusing on.

I really liked the destruction in Superman.   I like the idea that there are real consequences when superheroes fight.

I think it felt a little too much like the old GI Joe cartoons of past where no one ever got killed despite fighting a war.

Even in avengers..it's impossible that hundreds didn't die when that part of the city got lifted..but they made it seem like every single person was saved.

Yeah they really only showed one guy getting killed and that was when Ultron was opening fire with the Quinjet.  Otherwise despite all the destruction in the final act and the Hulk-Hulkbuster fight, the film deliberately avoided showing anyone getting killed although there were some close calls and some serious injuries.

Makes sense.

There were a couple of times where I saw a ghosted image on screen for an entire second.  It happened during a still shot where just one of the characters moved.

Another thing I noticed between the 2D and 3D AoU showings was the 3D image was zoomed in a bit more, cropping the image.

This actually makes me curious about how TVs handle 3D at home.  I usually would ignore the 3D blu-ray format, but after experiencing it I have an interest to jump into it at home.  How has everyone's experience with at-home 3D been?
