Peter Jackson and James Cameron bring new 48fps camera to motion picture industry – Part 2

He further went on saying, “That’s a different experience than if you see a fast-cutting montage at a technical presentation.… There can only ever be a real reaction, a truthful reaction, when people actually have a chance to see a complete narrative on a particular film, you settle into it.”

To minimize the movie’s risk of becoming a flop due to abundance of new technologies, Jackson and company have decided to roll it out in three basic versions: 2D, 3D and 3D IMAX, each of which will further be split into 24 fps and 48 fps versions, respectively.

Even if both 24- and 48-fps styles are released simultaneously, there is a fear, that the 3D versions will not be a big hit among the audience. Countless reviews to date have pointed to the fact that viewing 3D motion pictures, even passively, is a cumbersome experience by large. Human eyes do not get accustomed to the artificial visualization quickly, which has been the main reason for slow adaptability of the technology.

In case of the new robust frame technology, Scriretta clearly describes the underlying hurdle to its fame. “The footage opened up with wide expansive shots of people walking on mountains and over rich green landscapes — those awesome shots that became synonymous with the Lord of the Rings series when it began a decade ago,” he wrote. “These shots looked incredible — almost like something you would see in an IMAX 3D nature documentary — so extremely vivid and breathtaking, and more real than we’ve ever seen these shots before.… This is the future of Cinema… I thought… But my amazement quickly came to an end as the sizzle reel transitioned from the landscape footage to the character centric. Everything looked so… different. It was jarring.”

Whether it is 48 fps or even 3D tech, it is clear from the initiatives taken by film production companies, especially in the last one decade, is that they want to bring a major differentiating experience between cinemas and home theatres. Now that 4K televisions are just around the corner, the competition between the two media has increased to utmost limits.
