What Is The Difference Between 4D Cinema, 5D Cinema And 7D Cinema?

Various theaters and amusement parks offers movies with 4 dimensions, 5 dimensions, 7 dimensions, etc. What is the basic difference 4D Cinema5D Cinema7D Cinema and what are those additional dimensions?

 Sandhya SAID

Absolutely nothing. And it definitely has nothing to do with the dimensions we speak of in Physics.

4D cinema incorporates physical motion of things around you and the seat you are sitting on(seat effect simulation), along with a 3D movie. It is often believed that 5D cinema is one step above 4D- using motion as well as other sensory experiences like smoke effects, water droplets etc. But it's false.

There is no industry standard for such marketing concepts. The number of the D is often raised as a ploy to attract more customers. But essentially, they all mean the same.



These are just added experiences, with the #D describing how much you add to the flat motion picture.

Current "4D" theaters add motion, scent or other physical gimmicks to the experience of watching a 3D movie.



I have only heard of 5d.
3d should be obvious.
4d was movement (seats shifting and rumbling) and wind.
5d was interaction (shooting with a lightgun on the screen)

But honestly, '5d' is just a BS word.

They are all dimensional movie. When we are watching 3D movie we only can see solid pictures but now our technology will bring you into a whole new world and make you immersive into the story. Seats move to 3 dof [degree of freedom ] controlled by computer so that when we watch 5D movies with 3D glasses we will catch the feeling of storm, lightning, rain, spray mist, lapping legs, bubble, snow which will be totally different from the old 3D movies. Fresh and exciting because of the good interactivity created by the new device we developed. 
Same technology is projected in the market with the names of 9D theaters, 11D theaters, 12D theaters and so on. these are all marketing terms.

The more dimensions mean more great experiences in case of movies.

1D movie - Only video and no audio

2D movie - Audio + Video

3D movie - Audio + Video * 2 ...(2 projectors)

4D movie - Audio + Video * 2 + motion

5D movie - Audio + Video * 2 + motion + real experience ( smell rain smoke )

They even show a 11D movie here in Quest Mall, Kolkata


Last, how about you? How do you understand the Difference Between 4 Dimension, 5D, 6D, And 7D Movies?
