As reaction plane direction in heavy-ion collisions can be determined only coarsely, any attempt to measure 3D differential distributions, including over azimuthal angle, will yield blurred results. Deblurring procedures, analogous to those in optics, are proposed to correct for the coarse reaction-plane procedures and, simultaneously, any instrumental inefficiencies, to arrive at 3D distributions tied to true reaction plane. The refined 3D picture of the collisions can yield better access to the physics than the current method of azimuthal moments.
