Herzog was correct when he realized, upon first accessing this cave, that the images could only be improved by 3D, if the format was ever meant for anything beyond flinging shrapnel and tits at unsuspecting audiences. In this sense, it truly does work. I’ve always had the habit of lowering my specs just to see what effect the 3D is really having; here, that comparative analysis is mostly in the format’s favor. The color loss is still present, and significant, but it really makes some of these images pop, especially the cave paintings which seem to take on a weird motility in 3D, as if they are alive in the walls.
