All you need to know about 4D Film
4D Film is a 3D Film with some physical effects that take place while watching the movie. These physical effects are completely synchronized with the film scene and climate. The 4D Film contains physical effects like splitting water as rain, lightning, smell, wind, vibration etc. The first step for these 4D Films was started from 1990 and the first 4D Film was released in Friedrichsdorf, Germany on 1st September 2016 by MAXON company. At present this 4D-Film technology is available only in 23 countries like Germany, Netherlands, China, Canada etc.
Overview of 4D Film:
The 4D Films are created for increasing the visual experience of the viewers to enjoy and feel the scenes in the movie. To bring a live experience in 4D theaters, some special effects like moving the seat side to side, up and down, forward and backward synchronizing to the scene of the film are used. Other effects like pumping out bubbles, sprinkling water and they use large fans to create wind effects and smell etc. If we want to experience this special 4D Film, you need to spend some bucks from your pocket.
Comparison between 2D, 3D and 4D Films:
2D, 3D, and 4D are named because of the number of dimensions they show to viewers. In 2D, we can see height and length of the frame or picture. In 3D, we can see the height, depth, and length. The 4D is the combination of 3D and some physical effects like vibration, rain, wind, lightning. In the 4D theaters, the seats will move or vibrate while watching the movie synchronizing the movie. Such that, we can feel and enjoy the scenes in the film with the help of these special effects. In 3D theaters, we can see the movie in 3 Dimensional without any special effects. In 2D theaters, we can see the movie or the frame as flat with only two dimensions. The 4D-Film theater is very expensive and they are very fewer theaters available at present. The 3D-Films represents a frame in three dimensions with the help of optical illusion. The 2D-Films are very less expensive when compare to 4D and 3D. The 2D-Films are the regular films we watch in theaters in our daily life.
4D Film setup(Home/Theatre):
The entertainment industry is the best, smart and easy way for making money with the one-time investment. To setup 4D-Film personally in a home or in theater, we need the following equipments.
- Projection system,
- Silver screen,
- 3D glasses,
- Seating system as platforms,
- Sound system,
- 3D cinema control,
- Broadcast system,
- 3D movies
For the physical effects, we need
- Bubble machine,
- Windy machine,
- Smoke Machine,
- Snow machine,
- Fragrant machine.
For 4D film setup, we needed all the above machines to be fixed in a place to have fun.
Machines used for physical effects with their usage in a 4D film:
The snow machine is referred as snow mobiles. These snow making machines are also known as the snow blower. The snow guns and snow canons are their other names. This snow machine takes the water and with the help of air, it sprays the snow. It is used to make the people feel like they are in middle of snow rain.
The windy machine is used to produce air forcibly towards the seats to create a physical effect on the audience. It is used to make you feel the movie as you are in the middle of some hurricane or force wind which will come at the time of Cyclones.
The main use of Bubble machine is to produce colorful bubble effects. It produces the random bubbles which are visible. The bubbles are possibly in four colors which are pink, purple, green and blue. These bubbles will pop while they contact some characters.
It is also known as fog machine or fog generator. This smoke machine is used to produce smoke or fog. These smoke machines are mainly used for entertainment purpose. It is used in places like Halloween, night clubs to make the venue to enhance the lasers and lightings.
The fragrant machine is used to produce different fragrances according to the situation. This fragment machine is also used for entertainment purpose such that it will help you to feel that you are in that situation of the movie.
These machines are useful to setup a 4D Film theater or home system. To buy these machines you have to spend some money which is quite expensive.
The new era of film watching has begun and you can expect the 4d Film theaters available soon in your town for better real time experience of movies.
