'Star Wars,' 'Titanic' flirt with conversion

Here are four companies that have the technology and capacity to convert feature films to 3-D:

In-Three, in Thousand Oaks, is applying its process to the live-action footage in this summer’s Disney/Bruckheimer comedy, “G-Force.” It has done a test of “Titanic” and other studio pics. It was testing “Star Wars” for Lucasfilm, but George Lucas says they’ve stopped working together.

ConversionWorks, of Calgary, has also done a test of “Titanic” and other films.

ReelFX, with offices in Texas and Santa Monica, has been approached about library titles and upcoming releases.

Industrial Light & Magic converted “Nightmare” and remains theoretically open to more such work, though it’s not an important part of their business.
