[James Cameron: "Avatar 2" live-action shooting has been completed] Recently, James Cameron revealed when publicizing the 2020 Austrian World Summit environmental conference: "Avatar 2" live-action shooting has been completed. This series of shooting includes performance capture shooting and real-life shooting, and multiple shots are taken together, which is very complicated. Cameron revealed more than a year ago that the performance capture of "Avatar 2" has been completed.
This time Cameron said: They are filming the remaining live-action parts of the four sequels of "Avatar" in New Zealand. The latest progress is that there are about 10% of the total remaining unfinished. Among them, "Avatar 2" has been filmed, "Avatar 3" "About 5% left.
These films require a lot of post-production work. Cameron also said that on the day "Avatar 2" was released, they would immediately start to finish "Avatar 3". Although the new crown epidemic has delayed the shooting schedule (and schedule), it is equivalent to giving them one more year, but it does not mean that they have plenty of time.
The sequel to "Avatar" is a special project planned together. Generally speaking, 2 and 3 were shot together, and 4 and 5 were shot together. There are also several intertwined shots. In February last year, Cameron revealed that he had completed the performance capture of "Avatar 2 and 3", but the performance capture of "Avatar 4" which is also in progress has not been completed yet, and the remaining part has to wait for the young actors to grow up. It can be taken with a bigger picture. At the same time, it is necessary to prepare for the upcoming live-action shooting scene, which is very large and complicated. And the "Avatar" sequel involves a lot of underwater performance capture, the film developed its own capture method for this.
