Transformers 3 – 60% Of Final Film Shot with 3D Cameras; Trailer to Go Online Wednesday at 4pm (PST)

{mosimage} Capone from Ain't It Cool News has posted his full Transformers: Dark Of The Moon set report…And it may just finally set the record straight about Michael Bay's use of 3D cameras:

According to Bay, about 60 percent of the movie you'll see in the theater will have been shot in 3D. The rest will be either CGI (which is much easier to make look good in 3D) or post-converted.

But rest assured, the post-conversion won't be rushed like it has been in other movies:

They will have roughly nine months to convert this footage. I keep hearing from some folks in the post-conversion industry that, if given enough time, converted footage can look pretty great. I don't know if the world has actually seen a properly converted 3D movie as yet.

As for why they're doing post-conversion:

He [Michael Bay] also discovered its [3D filming] limits. "It doesn't work well with close-ups or when there's a lot of smoke in the air," he said. 

Perhaps the most exciting part of the article, though:

…the trailer will launch online at 4pm (PST) on Wednesday, December 8 on Apple Trailers.
