Awesome.

IESB is reporting rumors that Transformers: Dark of the Moon is having 3D-related troubles. The film was shot partly in native 3D with other scenes shot in regular 2D to be converted into 3D in post-production. IESB’s insider tells them the scenes shot in 3D don’t look as good as the studio hoped and may have to undergo some of the same post-production conversion methods as the 2D footage.

Michael “Awesome” Bay responded to the rumors by posting at his website:

Wow, I read these morons on the internet who think they are in the know. “We have have problems with our 3D????” Really? Come into my edit room and I will show you beautiful 3D. There has never been a live action show that has pushed the boundaries of 3D like Transformers 3. We shot the entire movie with 3D cameras. I actually loved shooting in 3D. I will give full details of my process and why I liked 3D in the next week right before the Transformers announcement piece comes out on Tron and Narnia.

Unfortunately all the important visuals were left out of that post because we couldn’t see what he was doing while typing it.  For example, when he typed those four question marks in a row, he also released 69 white doves, and when he said he’d show us beautiful 3D, he pressed a button and all 69 doves exploded.  It was awesome.
