Hi Everyone!

I wondered if any of you guys know how to make Avatar 3D.

I really wish any of you could help me. I know how to make red-blue 3D, but I don't know how to make Avatar 3D.

I don't know about you, but here where I live, they just have like avatar 3D and not red-blue 3D.

Hope you could help me

When you say Avatar 3D, do you mean RealD? Dolby Digital 3D? In both of those cases, it involves filming with two cameras, as with any type of 3D.

Then, a special projector is used to project each reel through a separate lens, each polarized to 90 degrees from the other. Then the glasses you wear have each lens polarized to match one of the two projector lenses. In order to get the image sufficiently bright to be seen, the projectors also run at 144 frames per second, with each frame being triplicated.

Red Blue 3D is becoming more and more less used. This whole 'Avatar 3D' which is called either RealD or Dolby Digital 3D as Axeman pointed out.

The process he pointed out is also correct, however this is an extremly expensive method of filming and very complication, more complicated than it sounds. Give it a while though, like a year or two and this method could very well be easier to create.
