'Avatar' Sequels Will Be Jam-Packed with Frames
From iwatchstuff, Avatar 2 and 3 are going to have so many fucking frames, everyone!
Speaking as if the main issue with Avatar was Sam Worthington's herky-jerky movement, James Cameron announced that he "fully intends" to shoot that film's sequels at a higher frame rate--likely at twice the usual speed of film or video. And to prove that the process won't result in something as annoying-to-look-at as when I accidentally had "Motionflow" enabled on my TV, Cameron plans to present some of his ultra-smooth footage tonight, saying of it:
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.
There's a revolution brewing, and it's going to change the world of collecting crisp nip-slip screen captures.
