Frequently Asked Questions

Will I have access to other 3DXSTAR content sites?

Yes we will be launching more 3D sites on a regular basis, offering content in different niches, themes and fetishes. Your 3DXSTAR membership will allow you to choose from a variety of 3D content niches and unlock only the ones you enjoy. This will ensure you only pay for content that interests you.

How are 3DXSTAR scenes filmed?

Don't be fooled by simulated 3D scenes that use ineffective rendering techniques to convert regular 2D scenes to 3D. Our scenes are filmed using special Stereoscopic 3D cameras. No fake 3D effect here, we use the same techniques to film our scenes as Hollywood movies like Avatar do.

If I unlock a 3DXSTAR content site, will my monthly membership fee increase?

Your monthly membership fee will never increase. Once you have unlocked a site you have full access to all the content archived in the site and all biweekly updates it receives.

What type of hardware do I need to watch 3D content offered by 3DXSTAR?

Visit the 3D Hardware guide to find the best solution. Have no fear, whether you're a technophile or prefer to run old school, there is a configuration that will work for you.

What are the different file formats offered by 3DXSTAR?

We offer file formats compatible with the most popular 3D display systems. Each scene is available in the industry standard side-by-side format in full HD. This format is compatible with all 3D enabled devices on the market. We also offer each scene in the anaglyph format as well as 2D HD for viewing on devices that don't have native 3D support.

What is the difference between anaglyph and side-by-side polarized 3D?

You could say it's the difference between night and day.

While the old style anaglyph does have its pros; relatively inexpensive, doesn't need special hardware and can be viewed on any system, it is the least advanced of all methods. With anaglyph a single image is made of two color layers, usually red and cyan, superimposed but offset. This creates the depth effect. Because color is used to separate the images, some or all color information can be lost.

Side-by-side polarized 3D is presented by offsetting two images to the left and right eye of the viewer. This allows full color and picture information and images can be presented in a higher resolution and spectrum color.

What is the difference between 3D glasses?

3D glasses fall into one of two groups: passive 3D glasses and active 3D glasses.

Passive 3D glasses are most often used in theatres. Unlike active 3D glasses they don't require a power source. The most commonly known passive 3D glasses are anaglyphs, which usually come equipped with one red lens and one cyan lens. While typically inexpensive, passive 3D glasses often sacrifice image quality. Feeling a flash from the past? The world's first 3D comic book to make an appearance was the Three Stooges in 1953.

Active 3D glasses require a power source for the lenses. Most glasses were previously powered by a thin wire that provided both the power and the synchronization. But most active 3D glasses are now battery powered, receiving signals similar to a TV remote. Shutter glasses are the most common active 3D glasses used today. Their LCD lenses alternately open and shut, allowing only one eye at a time to view an image. Because of the technology involved, Active 3D glasses tend to cost more but also allow for higher picture quality and color.
