James Cameron Shooting Avatar Sequels At Up To 60 Frames Per Second

avatar-300x210James Cameron wants to shoot the next two Avatar films at a rate of 48 or even 60 frames per second – rather than the normal 24 – to give viewers an ‘added sense of reality’.

Speaking at the CinemaCon convention in Las Vegas, alongside George Lucas and Jeffrey Katzenberg, Cameron said: “When you author and project a movie at 48 or 60, it becomes a different movie. The 3D shows you a window into reality; the higher frame rate takes the glass out of the window. In fact, it is just reality. It is really stunning.”

George Lucas updated the convention on his progress in desecrating, I mean, converting the original Star Wars movies into 3D. He said: “We have been working on conversion (for roughly seven years). It’s not a technical problem, it’s a creative problem getting really talented creative people to work in 3D.”
