OK, just to clarify what I meant and to be sure I understand you correctly, here are some examples:


Title: "A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas"
Edition: leave empty
reason:  because 3D is part of the title


Title: "Transformers Dark of the Moon"
Edition: "Limited 3D Edition"
reason: explicit mention on the cover that it's a 3D edition


Title: "The Three Musketeers"
Edition: empty
reason: 3D isn't mentioned either in the title nor as an edition

Is that in line with the rules?

First is part of title, second you are picking out specific data and that banner is expressly prohibited under rule, 3rd I would see as legitimate edition

To be more specific the transformers uses the same type of banner that Disney uses and that is defined in the rule as prohibited, so it can only be local

For the second one, I agree the top banner is prohibited but the text at the bottom "Limited 3D Edition", is that also prohibited?

These are perfect examples of the three conditions we see.

And as far as my 3D collection goes it is how we have been handling it.  From how I interpret the rules you are correct.

Well this did make me go look at whats in my collection.

"Clash of the Titans 3D" is correctly named title wise, but it did have an edition of "Blu-ray 3D" which does not exists on the cover except in the madia banner at the top.  So I put in a contribution to change that.

I think these are good examples on when to include in the title, edition and when it is not included in either.

But like I said earlier (and Skip recommended) I personally tag them all using the tag system because we do have conditions where edition and title do not fit and it make sense in case you want to filter them, report on them, etc.

Easier to find when we actually get 3.8.

Yeah, for local purposes, nothing beats creating a custom category. That way I can keep track of all my 3D Blu-rays and they have a nice 3D Blu-ray icon to boot.

...at least, until 3.8 hits the street and we have an official way of entering and submitting that data.

There is one major flaw in your comment, Kathy. The rules specifically forbid the data found on most Disney combos and others.

Which rule to be exact?

This is exactly in line with the rules, and how I would expect to see these entered.

In 3.8, the 3D indicator will be view-able from the mini-preview in the Add DVD window, and of course from the full preview.

Agreed -

Ken will the 3D flag be retrievable as an edit conditions in the reports?
Also will we have filers on it?

I like to put 3D logos on my reports.
