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.
