During a virtual press conference attended by Filmfare, Cameron talked about 3D movie trends and what’s available to fans. Talking about Avatar’s impact on 3D movies, Cameron said, “I can say that 3D has been generally accepted for a while. I mean, Avatar won best cinematography with digital camera. No digital camera has ever won a best cinematography Oscar before, and then two of the next three years, Oscar-winning cinematographers used the same camera. So, you’ve got three out of four years where digital cinema is accepted by the Academy.”
He added, “3D seems to most people to be coming to an end. But it’s really not over. It’s just been accepted. It’s just part of your choice when you go to the theater to see a movie. big blockbuster.”He added, “3D seems to most people to be coming to an end. But it’s really not over. It’s just been accepted.

The director also compared 3D technology with color. “When the new colors came out, it was a big deal. People used to go to the movies because they were in color. And I think around the time of Avatar, people went to the movies because they were in 3D. No one would go. watch the movie today because it’s in 3D. That’s all the other factors that we choose the movie. So it has an impact on the way it’s shown, which is now just an accepted part and a part. part of nihilism and how it’s done. In the long run – the cultural impact changes, I guess we’ll find out if people show up for Avatar 2.”
