News Summary: Clear format dispels 'Hobbit' magic
Friday - 12/7/2012, 4:47pm EST
(AP) - FAST FRAME: Peter Jackson's three-part epic based on "The Hobbit" was shot in 48 frames per second, a format that doubles the rate used for decades. It provides less blur and more clarity.
TOO REAL? Some critics have found the image is so crisp that some of the artifice of moviemaking becomes apparent. One cinematographer thinks it's better for real-life settings, rather than fantastic ones.
BROADER PALETTE: Other filmmakers like James Cameron are eyeing the format, which has become easier in the digital age. Cameron may shoot at 60 frames per second for the "Avatar" sequels.
