I asked this before, but no answer was given.

What would (or could) be the difference in 3D "quality" between displaying two interlaced pictures in a 2160 resolution and the "Hardware Based" option in a 1080 resolution? Can someone explain?

3D mvc is two full resolution 1080p frames that when rendered on passive OLED 4K are essentially interlaced where the passive glasses are polarized such that each eye sees essentially the odd or even scan lines and your brain interprets the 3D

1080p passive TVs render each 1080p frame in half resolution since you need both presented at the same time to see the 3D

1080p active TVs show both fullframe images in sequence at a high refresh rate where your glasses shutter in sync with the tv to show you both at approx the same time and your brain sees 3D. active shutter requires carefully calibrated sets and extreme ambient light control to reduce eye strain and artifacts.

for SBS or OU 3D i believe you have two half resolution images displayed at the same time for passive and in sequence for active where your glasses present both at same time to your eyes and you see 3D

as far as i know anything other than MVC encoded 3D is half resolution. now it is possible that standard Kodi will take an MVC encoded movie and decode a single 2D frame and then output SBS or OU and give you the 3D effect. this is "fake" 3D in the sense that the movie was not encoded this way. it's like taking any 2D source and having your tv "upscale" to 3D.

i could also be way off here. google is your friend. but the reason we want MVC decoding is because that is full resolution for each eye. for active shutter TVs at 1080p and passive 3D TVs that are 4K

passive 1080p TVs are half res regardless of source encoding
I just had to create (lost my old logins) an account to submit my feedback because I have been testing 3D thouroghly for a while now using these releases.
Using my NUC and LG OLED65E6V I actually get best picture/perfomance running 4k resolution and not 1080p/HW acceleration.
1080p with HW just isn´t as smooth and picture quality is if possible even better in 4k.
Not sure how it all works but there is just no way i am loosing any data or 3D depth this way, I am really getting a fantastic jawdropping picture.
Now, with my old panasonic plasma, 1080p and hw acceleration was of course the right way to go but i have to say that with LG OLED, 4k display and 3D in "preferred" setting is the winner in my opinion.

My 2 cents
