James Cameron to film Avatar sequels quicker

27 Sep

There are some famous equations available in the market. E=MC². The Pythagorean Theorem: a² + b² = c². Now James Cameron has added a brand new another: frames = better 3D. Higher frame rates appear to be the way in which Hollywood goes and Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit is currently being shot at 48 frames per second (fps) in preference to the usual 24fps most movies use today. However, JamCam says he aims to shoot the Avatar sequels at 60fps to create first class 3D. “I believe it makes for better 3D,” Cameron told The Hollywood Reporter. “There were quite a lot of arguments for why 48fps and why 60fps. My feeling is that if this can be a software upgrade [for digital cinema projectors], do both. It doesn’t change anything on the projector; you don’t must change the lamp house or the lenses. In case you are uploading software you’ll upload it for 48 and 60 and let the filmmakers decide.”
