Clash of the Titans director Louis Leterrier says Avatar prevented him from filming it in 3D.
Leterrier wanted to use 3D cameras to shoot his Greek mythology epic.
But the technology was so new the only ones in existence had been booked by James Cameron for Avatar, now the biggest-grossing film to date.
Leterrier had to settle for the conversion of his movie to 3D during post-production.
“Warner Brothers came to me and said, ‘We have a new technology called View D and you’ll be able to convert this movie into 3D, would you like to try it?'” he says.
“I said, ‘I’ve seen conversions before and it doesn’t work, everyone looks flat.’ They said, ‘No, let us show you what it is,’ and they converted it in 10 minutes.
