James Cameron’s box office-topping epics Avatar and Titanic are being re-released in cinemas with high dynamic range visuals.
Cameron’s production company Lightstorm Entertainment is working with Pixelworks’ TrueCut Motion platform to remaster the films.
“We’re bringing Avatar and Titanic back to the big screen, looking better in every way,” said Cameron. “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.”
According to Pixelworks, TrueCut Motion technology provides filmmakers with a visual palette of cinematic motion looks that goes beyond “anything previously possible”.
The technology enables filmmakers to dial in the motion, with any source frame rate, shot by shot, in post production. The TrueCut Motion platform then ensures that these creative choices are delivered consistently across every screen, whether in the cinema or the home.
“Lightstorm is once again extending the boundaries of the cinematic experience, and we are ecstatic to be a part of that,” said Richard Miller, GM of TrueCut at Pixelworks. “After experiencing these remastered versions of Avatar and Titanic, we believe more and more filmmakers will be excited to take advantage of motion grading with TrueCut Motion technology.”
