Watch how IMAX officials convert Harry Potter to 3-D

Check out this new video from, showing the process of converting Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince to 3-D.

“The first step is masking out objects in the scene so that we can turn those objects 3-D,” says IMAX’s Eric Robinson as he shows off the software. “The next step is, re-create the scene in 3-D so that we can generate depth information from that. Our proprietary render system generates a new image, which is offset from the original.”
