Speaking at the Blu-Con in Beverly Hills, "Titanic" and "Aliens" director James Cameron decried the rushed 3-D conversion of recent films such as "Clash of the Titans", but said that classic films such as "E.T." and "Jaws" should be given the 3-D treatment.
Cameron claimed that the last-minute addition of 3-D to those modern films prevented technicians from fully applying the new technology. By contrast, engineers applying 3-D to canonical movies can take the time needed to do the conversion right, without fear of blowing a release date.
"Once we get to auto-stereoscopic, that's watching 3-D without glasses, it is going to be the way we watch all of our media. That's probably eight to 10 years away," Cameron said.
