Having shot Avatar in 3D, director James Cameron is planning on converting his 1997 blockbuster Titanic into a 3D release, but said it will be different because he plans to take his time instead of doing a "slapdash conversion" like a growing number of current movies. He slams the Hollywood studios because the bean-counters are overruling the filmmakers and trying to make everything on a miserly budget. What's the point of promoting the 3D TVs and 3D Blu-ray players coming out in the next 6 months if the only "true" high quality 3D programming is reality shows, network sports, and the occasional film from directors like James Cameron.

Avatar director James Cameron has criticised the process some film-makers use to convert a film originally shot in 2D into the 3D format.

Cameron said filming a movie in 3D - as he did with the Oscar-winning movie Avatar - assures better quality over subsequent conversion.

He said directors "should have been pounding on the gates of the studios saying we want to make movies in 3D."

Cameron also expressed concerns the appetite for 3D films might soon waver.
