Advancements in technology are continually opening up new ways for us to experience movies. At IMAX, we’re committed to working with filmmakers to support and help deliver their creative vision to audiences across the globe.
In The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug, Peter Jackson has pushed the boundaries of new filmmaking techniques by capturing the movie in high frame rate (HFR) 3D. Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was the first major motion picture release to use this method. In addition to the IMAX® and IMAX® 3D presentations, the film will also be shown using a higher frame rate in select IMAX® theatres.
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.
