Black Screen Alert~! InterOp Losing Life Support

Remember “Paradigm Shift”? Of course not. Writers have been banned from using that overworked phrase for another 20 years. The same will soon happen with the misused terms “Perfect Storm” and “begs the question”. Notwithstanding, we need a way to describe the potential for Reality-laced Hyperbolic Activity that is coming to Digital Cinema screens everywhere.

Potential Points of Failure Quotient = 10.95. Hyperbole Quotient…OK, InterOp will be around a long time for legacy, but don’t expect it to continue for everything else.

Does that describe it? OK, let’s see how it can happen (and we’ll keep math and the SMPTE Police out of this.)

[email protected] Content Creation Pushing Quality

Excellent 3D work is now hitting the big screen regularly, the latest being the exceptional Hugo. One imagines that eventually the circle of cognoscenti will Venn out of “Friends of Cameron”, perhaps even developing from the semi-pro end of the market. If it does, it will be because of efforts of people like the [email protected] Consortium who put out great information, white papers and tutorials, trying to protect the eye-balls of us all.

The latest is a white paper from Robert Boudreau which documents his adventure of buying a JVC 1080 3D camera for his daughter’s wedding. High Quality Home 3D Movies Using the JVC Full HD 3D Camcorder with the Toshiba Autostereo Laptop or the Sony Shutter Glasses Laptop

All 3DAvatar™, AllThe3DTime™ [Updated]

James Cameron and the Avatar EyeYou must know this stuff if you are going to be an adequate part of the 3D/Digital Cinema machine…

HP – ‘Avatar’ sequels could shoot back-to-back (Cameron working on finishing ‘Avatar’ novel first)

Cameron hinted that the final two parts of the planned trilogy could be lumped together into a single production. “We’re actually talking about that. That’s not a decision yet,” he said. “That is something that makes a lot of sense, given the nature of these productions, because we can bank all the [motion] capture and then go back and do cameras over a period of time.”
