Titanic and Avatar Remastered in 4K HDR and HFR TrueCut Motion

James Cameron will bring several of his films to the cinema, including Titanic and Avatar in 4K and HDR, via an unprecedented HFR remaster called TrueCut Motion, signed Pixelworks, which does not sacrifice the "cinema" look.

Since the beginning of his career, director James Cameron has been obsessed with technological advances. A passion that sometimes locked him in unfulfilled quests (cf. 3D) but which does not detract from his talent as a filmmaker, quite the contrary.

Cinema aspect preserved in HFR

And the latest news, the artist has been working for a while on remasters of several of his hits, including Titanic and Avatar, with the new TrueCut Motion technology developed by the company Pixelworks, unveiled to the world during the CES show in Las Vegas 2022 last January. Purpose of the maneuver: cinema releases, but why not also in Blu-Ray and 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray for Home Cinema enthusiasts.

To put it simply, TrueCut Motion technology keeps the cinema aspect of a work, even if it is in HFR (number of images per second greater than 24). We remember, for example, the films The Hobbit by Peter Jackson, whose capture in 48 frames per second gave a "soap opera" effect decried by some. Not so with the TrueCut Motion process. Thus, action scenes with many movements or pans would be fluid for perfect readability of the images on the screen (see video below).

From 24 fps to 120 fps in the same film

Without going into details, TrueCut Motion lets you control motion factors scene by scene, such as jerkiness and blurring by changing the display frequency to 48 frames per second, 60, 96 or even 120, during the post-production stage. The new versions of Titanic and Avatar may be in 4K, HDR and HFR, but they should normally retain the cinematic effect specific to the 24 frames / second standard. Note that this technology is applicable to both cinema masters and Blu-Ray and 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray versions, and that the manufacturer TCL is already a partner in the TrueCut Motion process. Namely, most broadcasters (TV, video projectors, monitors, tablets, etc.) are able to access TrueCut Motion technology after a Firmware update.
