Digital Projection and Nightmare Before Christmas

So... The Nightmare Before Christmas. Projected digitally. I havenít seen this movie yet but I want to go see it just to see how the new DLP projectors look. I donít know whether I should be happy about the 3D aspect of it or not, cause basically itís a gimmick to get people to come see the movie. On a side note I have heard that if Nightmare is successful Old George Lucas is gunna be re-re-re-releasing Star Wars in 3D projected digitally. Wow :-( I mean the last time I saw Star Wars in theater it was what? Last year? Anyways dose anyone know the specs on these projectors? Frame rates, resolution, lumens, anything at all?

How does 3d work? From what I have seen I know its 2 images shot side by side from 2 cameras put together into one image. Somehow your glasses put them back together and your mind makes it 3d, but how.

Isnt this a different type since they are using a movie that was made traditionally--only one image source, not two cameras recording at the same time? I am guessing but they must be taking the flat image and isolating certain elements in computer to create the dual image streams. i.e. extrapolating what is behind the foreground objects in each frame by using other frames where the foreground object isnt in the path and paint-fill stamp tooling it it? Then maybe doing something with the foreground objects to isolate them or make them appear 3d(like wrapping photos around a wire mesh object)?

I had seen a demo for a program called Pixel Dust which could supposedly take any footage and remove unwanted elements(erase a bus from a panning shot of a street, a skiier from a snow slope). The demo looked amazing. But Real Viz or wheoever was selling it removed it from their site last time I checked.

Yeah they probably rotoscoped it. ILM was in charge of the work. But my question is for and stereograph image how do the glasses you wear isolate the individual right and left frames. I wanna try to make this myself, using two cameras but I donít know how. I donít even know what section to ask this in.
