Michael Bay complained on his blog this week about my Tuesday story on the 3D conversion work in “Transformers 3.” He also called me this morning to voice his displeasure directly.
I stand by my story.
On his blog, Bay says I got the number wrong for what percent of the movie was converted. Over the phone, he told me conversion companies try to claim a shot as “converted” (and put it on their reel) when they only did the background and the CG robots in the foreground were rendered in stereo. His point being, I guess, that the conversion companies must be feeding me exaggerated numbers.
