James Cameron's Lightstorm Entertainment has been remastering Titanic and Avatar for a while now, with the intent to bring the projects back to cinemas. Now, they're employing some revolutionary tech to get the job done. But you don't have to take my word for it.
Cameron recently said, "We're bringing Avatar and Titanic back to the big screen, looking better in every way. We will be presenting both films in 4K with high dynamic range visuals and have been working with Pixelworks' TrueCut Motion platform to remaster the films in high frame rate, while keeping the cinematic look of the original."
This is a very interesting update from the blockbuster director and makes me very intrigued about what the final results might look like.
What Is TrueCut Motion?
For those of you who don't know, TrueCut Motion technology is specially formatted to dial in the motion, with any source frame rate, shot by shot, in post-production. That means you can have a truer image with higher resolution, higher dynamic range, and more colors without sacrificing the motion on the screen. It is cutting-edge tech. The format also ensures your artistic intent is delivered across any screen. In both theaters and in the home.
I'm always a little hesitant about directors changing their masterpieces, but I think Cameron's obsession with technology and perfection might make this a match made in heaven. And I am ecstatic to be able to go back to the movies to see both of these titles on the largest screen possible.
