Apple TV+ 'Monsterverse' Show Filming in 3D for Vision Pro Viewing

Upcoming Apple TV+ show "Monarch: Legacy of Monsters" is reportedly being shot in 3D format to make the most of the immersive cinematic experience afforded by Apple's Vision Pro headset.

According to ScreenTimes' Sigmund Judge, the live-action Godzilla and Titans TV series that's based on Legendary's Monsterverse franchise has been shooting in a three-dimensional format supported by Apple's newly announced headset, based on conversations with people familiar with its production.

If so, it would be the first confirmed TV+ show to support the 3D video-viewing capabilities of Apple's $3,499 headset. VisionOS, the software that runs on Vision Pro, supports a Cinematic Environment that allows users to experience shows and movies at the frame rate and aspect ratio chosen by the creator. The feature supports spatial audio, and can also make the virtual screen environment feel 100 feet wide.

Apple showed off the technology during last week's WWDC keynote and later to invited members of the press, using clips from James Cameron's Avatar: The Way of Water to demonstrate its additional ability to render even more immersive content using stereoscopic 3D.

Apple announced its order for the Godzilla TV series in January 2022, but has not yet revealed when it will arrive on TV+. The series takes place after the battle between Godzilla and the Titans leveled San Francisco, and will be produced by Legendary Television with co-creator Chris Black serving as executive producer and showrunner. Black is known for his work on "Star Trek: Enterprise" and "Outcast."

Remember how successful 3D televisions were?
Same thing here.
Disagree. The difference here is that 3D movies don’t require any additional hardware once you’re using the headset. It’s already a 3D monitor.

Watching 3D movies in VR is a much different and more natural experience compared to using 3D glasses in a theater or on a 3D TV.

Apple TV+ should be free for 5 years for anyone who buys the headset.

Let's give Apple a chance. If it doesn't pick up after 5 years, then maybe we consider it a failure.

it would be cool if they could setup enough cameras in a soccer stadium to create a truly unique experience of almost being on the field while the match is happening

I love 3D tv and hate that they lost popularity. I still have my 3d Plasma and avatar 3d blu ray ;)
