There were some articles circulating around the INTERNET saying: Transformers 3 is NOT Being Shot in 3D.
For example the guys from Screenrant said:
Since the start of production a few months ago, Michael Bay’s Transformers 3 has made a number of unfortunate headlines. Now, we have learned from a source close to Bay that the movie is not being shot in 3D as originally believed.
Instead, next summer you will see yet another product guilty of a post-production 3D conversion. Apparently, filming did begin in 3D, but Bay opted out when the production moved to Chicago.
Considering how open the Chicago sets were to the viewing public, it’s surprising there haven’t already been more definitive answers regarding the lack of 3D camera rigs on set. I took some photos and video of the downtown shoots and each time I scoured the set for a 3D rig – but there were none to be found. Today’s news would explain the absence of the mammoth cameras.
It was revealed two months back that Transformers 3 would be shot in 3D but it’s sounding as though nobody followed-up on that report. The film’s rushed production should have been fair warning that a full 3D shoot would be extremely difficult to pull off.
In response to that, Transformers 3 Director Michael Bay commented at his Official Forum:
Who is this moron posting about what I’m shooting with??? People have no idea how hard we have worked to bring 3D filming into live action shooting. We have invented rigs and systems to place 3d cameras like no other live action movie has done before. The proof will be noticed on the final product.
And another user posted this picture of a Sony Pace 3D camera in the Chicago set of Transformers 3:
So Transformers 3 is being filmed in 3D.
