Hobbit 3D 48fps: biggest industry change since talkies

August 5, 2012 at 8:05 am by linuxelf  - 

The world of visual effects is bracing itself for dramatic change. As Peter Jackson ushers in 48 frames per second with the 14th Dec release of  The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 3D, effects houses and studio budgets will feel the brunt of the biggest change to film production since ‘talkies‘ set the the industry standard of 24 frames per second.

Hollywood’s big visual effect house hitters Douglas Trumbull (2001: A Space Odyssey) (Avatar) producer Jon Landau, Dennis Muren (Industrial Light + Magic) will be among those participating in an VFX community panel called ‘Siggraph‘, where the implications of higher frame rates will be the hot topic.

    I’m still a bit confused by 48fps. Will cinemas require enhanced equipment to show these films at this higher rate or is the standard digital equipment sufficient?

    This article is telling it again, PJ will make a fantastic trilogy. There’s only one stupid thing, the second movie is still considired to be called:”The Desolation of Smaug”, this would be very lame! They better read some comments, suggesting for example The Hobbit:”The Road Goes Ever On”. 😉
