Digital Domain to Buy In-Three in 3D Deal
The 3D stereo provider developed the Dimensionalization 2D-to-3D conversion process used for "G-Force" and "Alice in Wonderland."
Digital Domain Holdings has entered into an agreement to acquire 3D stereo provider In-Three.
In-Three is the developer of the Dimensionalization 2D-to-3D conversion process that was used on the 3D conversion for Disney’s G-Force and some of the live action in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.
The In-Three team will be based out of Digital Domain Holdings’ headquarters in Port St. Lucie, Fla.
In-Three CEO Neil Feldman told The Hollywood Reporter that a conversion pipeline would be set up in Florida and involve DD staff. He added that a goal is to incorporate In-Three technology into Digital Domain's VFX pipeline. “An attractive part of this is sharing tools and techniques,” Feldman noted.
Said John Textor, CEO of Digital Domain Holdings: “In-Three has been a pioneer in the research and development of stereoscopic technology. This partnership adds large-scale production to In-Three’s world class technology while creating new jobs in the state of Florida.”
Earlier this year, In-Three entered into an alliance with Reliance MediaWorks, but that arrangement was dissolved last summer.
Digital Domain studios in California and Vancouver recently completed production on Disney’s Tron: Legacy, which was generated and produced in stereoscopic 3D.
