James Cameron Inventing New Technology for "Avatar" Sequels

Posted: October 29th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
James Cameron Inventing New Technology for "Avatar" SequelsSubmit Comment
During an event in Silicon Valley this week, director James Cameron spoke to Google CEO Eric Schmidt about all sorts of topics, including the new technology he's working on for the upcoming "Avatar" sequels.

Cameron first mentioned that new CG would have to be developed for the underwater and ocean surface scenes. He said: "We are going to see the oceans of Pandora and the lifeforms and ecosystems there, so we've got to do more with CG water, both underwater with the caustics, the lighting, the optics of bringing light through water and with the surface of water, which is one of the big challenges in CG."

He went on to explain that the biggest challenge he wants to tackle is increasing the frame rate of the sequel. Films are currently shot with a frame rate of 24 frames per second. His goal is to get it up to 48 or 60 frames per second, making it so that you get realistic shots at the time of shooting, rather than having to wait six months for editing.

"I want to get rid of the motion artifacting associated with 24 frame display. Because movies are way behind, they're a century out of date," Cameron explained. "48, 60, 72, we're looking at the efficacy of the different ones and different solutions. The projectors can do it right now, the projectors can run at 144hrz but they're still displaying 24 frames content at 144hrz. The trick is how do you display 48 or 60 frame content, multi-flashing it, the way 3D projectors do. So that's one little bump Iím working on."

Heres an idea instead of using cgi water just use real water you don't have to reinvent the book jc everytime you make an avatar movie ........old saying goes a little somethin like this

Less is more

Every time he says that he is inventing another way to film the Avatar movie, people flock to see it and it makes over a billion dollars.

I'm not gonna fall for the same trick twice. I'll wait until movie is available online for free.

Okay James, it seems you figured out that inventing or working with new technology on your latest project can mean big $$$ when the film makes it to theaters. But if you are going to have a knee jerk response and do that sort of thing every damn time with every damn movie that you make from now on, my suggestion is don't waste your time on this small sh*t.

I say that you take back over the reins of the Terminator franchise and put a ton of money into making your own Time Machine, and film the whole damn movie in the future...

This guy is suck a d*ck head, between him and Lucas this art form is crumbling into digital bullsh*t. So focused on tech crap, he needs to focus on writing a decent script. A faraway world also needs a great script. What happened to all of those filmmakers that actually gave a damn about saving film?????

@filmgeek - Totally agree with you! Digital sucks d*ck, I've been saying it for years.

Digital cant handle light for sh*t and therefore makes it look like a f*ckin syfy original movie.
I'll never forgive Lucas for introducing the idea of shooting a feature film with digital sh*t!
The only people who should be using digital are independent filmmakers who cant afford the luxury and QUALITY of film! Not the other way around!

By the way, I like James Cameron, but his super duper stereoscopic 3D master fusion camera can suck my f*cking d*ck......its sucks and its ugly.

They need to get back to worrying about the quality of the image, not how many f*cking pixels they can fit in it.

I really hope Cameron isn't going continue to be a money grubbing whore who only lets money make the deciding factors in his films..... aka George lucas!

60 fps? Really James????? So you want it to look even worse than T.V. Shows?????

Un-f*cking-believable.

James Cameron Inventing New Technology for "Avatar" Sequels


He's actually creating it or is he paying to have it invented ? Who the f*ck is James Cameron .... Thomas f*cking Edison ?

For those who are unaware... James Cameron has invented the following.

1. The toothbrush
2. Poptarts

and the time machine however he didn't want someone else to use it so he traveled back in time to stop himself from making the time machine. Mindf*ck? I know.
Gates writes:

James Cameron also used his time machine to go back to the early 1900's to build the Titanic and then have it sink only to make a movie about it 90 years later. James Cameron is f*cking selfish!
Gates writes:

Oh that's actually James Cameron in that 1928 clip talking on his cell phone. Cameron was pissed off when Chaplin laughed at him when he tried to sell him "3D" technology.

I'm missing already all that live shooting currently in being replaced by CG bullsh*t. The last of Peter Jackson's scores.

Just leave the 60fps for BBC doc*mentaries. In movie theaters people will have seizures and die during the screenings.

f*ck JimmyCameron. He better stand back and open the way for true geniuses like Christopher Nolan.

Well from a technical point of view would be fine.. but from a preceptional point a view (watching it) all movies would seem like lousy doc*mentaries and would lose all that 24p cinematical feel everyone wants to achieve..

Digital cinematography isn't the problem. There's nothing wrong with digital cinematography. It's a rapidly improving technology. It's only a matter of time before digital, technologically speaking, surpasses film. IMAX Dual 4K digital camera should be interesting.


Oh and Cameron... f*ck your 48-60FPS. I really think it's a terrible idea.

"there's nothing wrong with digital cinematography. It's a rapidly improving technology. It's only a matter of time before digital, technologically speaking, surpasses film."

Yes, but analogue film is still superior to digital shots. Digital is an approximation of the analogue medium.

True, once the approximation reaches a certain threshold, no one in the audience can really tell the difference between the two. The only real advancement, and its a biggie, is the ability to merge photorealistic artificiality with digitized film.

So you reduce film down, digitally, so you can meet digital 'effects', which is a misnomer for the creation of entirely artificial words, coming up on the photorealistic scale. The two meet somewhere in the middle, closer to the top where film perfection resides.

So, yes, from a purely visual perspective, digital is a genuine, if not revolutionary, advancement, but from a storytelling perspective, it hardly does d*ck, and Avatar is excellent evidence.

"here's an idea for an even better technology,Mr.Cameron,write an original script for an R rated action movie that has some marines and aliens in it and no sam worthington"

That idea is just so 80-ish and 90-ish. Besides, Cameron is too big a douchebag, and too busy sucking his own d*ck, to care what you, a relative nobody, wants to see in a film.

You don't matter, just pay to see his latest useless technology in action and shut the f*ck up.

Well, that's how he thinks anyway.

Is he sure about this one? Because last time I checked, the mathematics of light refraction through water were pretty sound and well known.

All it takes is implementing the math in algorithms that can render photorealistically. And I'm pretty sure that's not a 'big challenge'.

Maybe he just likes framing problems in terms that make other people think he's wresting dragons and alligators, so he look more like the hero for finding the solution.

The guy is a legend, sure, but more so in his own mind.

I guess old Cameron is talking about modeling and rendering light diffusion, which is more computationally intense and complex. I guess he's not looking for any sort of 'tricks' to get the job done.
