Whether or not you’re a fan of James Cameron’s work is irrelevant when he speaks on 3D technology. As a huge initiator of the platform in theatres everywhere with Avatar, Cameron is again talking about 3D, but this time the subject is overall technology adoption. He explains that 3D technology was definitely boosted by the movie visibility, but doesn’t believe that theatres are enough to generate the home integrations that many companies are considering. Instead, he points to tablets as the portal that’s necessary to bring 3D into the home. Because many are developing glasses-free 3D technology, expect many to start taking a chance on the platform in general.
Cameron goes on to explain why the glasses-free 3D element is important. Autostereoscopic TVs are the likely solution to the hindrance that so many have cited: the glasses themselves. We already have smaller screens utilizing the technology, but until we see everything done on a larger level, 3D sales may continue to sag a bit.
James Cameron is a huge advocate of 3D technology, and he believes that consumer actually want the necessary hardware but simply don’t want to wear specs to get the effect. Toggling between 2D and 3D visuals will become commonplace in the future, and with so many already releasing 3D laptop initiatives, look for the same push to begin making headway into large screen home units.

There are a few personalities in the entertainment industry that generate buzz and garner respect when they speak on industry-wide issues. In this case, James Cameron is playing the role of 3D advocate, as he always does, and mentions how he’s working with the BBC to create the big screen release of Walking with Dinosaurs. Though this should be absolutely stunning, Cameron does let you know how he feels about the BBC holding back with 3D a bit:
“The BBC has held back a little bit with 3D…BSkyB has jumped in and ESPN has jumped in.”
It’s obvious that Cameron has faith that the BBC can dominate the region’s 3D broadcasting, but the hesitation has already cost them some valuable ground. The costs associated with development have been steadily dropping, and because of that, the BBC should make a move – it’s obvious that everyone else is!
Cameron goes on in the interview to explain how he believes that it’s time for the BBC to make the muscle move into the industry. 3D is obviously here to stay, and as the development costs continue to plummet, it will only lead to more competition, as smaller organizations can start to get into the 3D movement.
Cameron brings up a great point, and with Wimbledon getting broadcast in 3D to the public, there should be some BBC moves in the near future. Obviously, they plan on working with Cameron on some 3D content, but how far they’re willing to take things may be up in the air for a bit longer.

There were several rumors about Titanic, the blockbuster movie of James Cameron. An article in the LA Times confirmed that Titanic will be converted from 2D to 3D and released in April 2010, which is the 100th anniversary of the Titanic tragedy.
The most interesting question is, “would the post production 3D conversion process give more depth to the film and make it a box office hit”
However, James Cameron’s film has all the capabilities to receive 3D treatment. He is the man behind the two engrossing films of all time- Titanic and Avatar. In fact, he has brought 3D to the people.
If Cameron manages to provide 3D treatment to Titanic, obviously the next question is whether Lassie, The Sound of Music and Barberella will be the next films.

All the animation movies like Chicken Little or Kung Fu Panda will be very good 3D movies. 3D of the movie has been supervised by Phil Mcnally. By now he is so expert in 3D technology. His characters do exactly what he says. They jump out of the screen only when he tells them to do so.
The tool of the 3D movie making is ‘depth script’ . It works like a guide for the 3D in the movie. Most of the time the person who tells the story will use it to regulate the 3D, He decides the point at what the characters will come to you. There should be coordination between the action and the dialogues.
Everybody today is waiting for more action on the 3D scene. The market for 3D is very huge and it is increasing day by day.
