Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was the first major motion picture to be captured and released in high frame rate (HFR) 3D, and the tradition continued with the second installment in the trilogy, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. The third and final film, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, will follow suit when it is released on December 17, 2014. In addition to IMAX® 3D presentations, the film will be shown in HFR at select IMAX® theatres. Continue reading to learn more about HFR technology and to find a theatre near you.
What is High Frame Rate 3D (HFR 3D)?
Frame rates refer to the number of images (frames) displayed by a projector in one second. The current standard in cinemas worldwide is 24 frames per second (fps). HFR 3D productions of 48 fps record and play visuals at twice the current rate, which more closely approximates what the human eye actually sees. The higher 48fps rate provides enhanced clarity and reduces motion blur during action sequences, artifacts, judder and strobing.
