James Cameron ‘Fully Intends’ to Make ‘Avatar 2 and 3’ at Higher Frame Rates

James Cameron said he "fully intends" to make Avatar 2 and 3 at higher frame rates, and he is looking seriously at 48 and 60 frames per second.

On Wednesday at CinemaCon, Cameron, Jeffrey Katzenberg and George Lucas talked at a packed session about the bleeding edge of digital production and exhibition technologies.

As Cameron talked frame rates -- a topic on which he is slated to do a presentationThursday during the Las Vegas confab -- Katzenberg revealed that he is working on scalable multicore processing, a "quantum leap" in computing.

Rather than waiting hours and even days for rendering to occurring, the DreamWorks Animation CEO suggested that "the next generation of artists will see their work as they are creating it. ... That is a revolutionary change in the process."

Later in the panel, as the Lucasfilm leader was discussing 3D and Star Wars, Katzenberg turned to him and asked: "So Chapter 7 will be shot in 3D?"

"Yep," Lucas responded. "But then that will be done as a hologram."
