Peter Jackson has shared some details about the two upcoming The Hobbit movies. In The Hobbit blog Jackson reveals that The Hobbit is being recorded in 3D, 48 frames per second and ultra-high 5K resolution using Red Epic cameras.<br /> <br /><h3>The Hobbit in 3D and 5K resolution</h3>If you liked The Lord of the Rings you will probably also love the upcoming The Hobbit movies. The first is scheduled for December 2012 and the second for 2013. Peter Jackson now has the full responsibility after Guillermo del Tori quit.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/peterjacksonepic-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/peterjacksonepic-1.jpg" alt="Peter Jackson tells about Red Epic cameras with 5K resolution " title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Peter Jackson tells about Red Epic cameras with 5K resolution</i></p><br />In the blog, Peter Jackson reveals technical details about The Hobbit movies. Jackson says that the film crew uses no less than 48 Red Epic cameras. The Red cameras have become extremely popular and have replaced more traditional professional cameras in some studios.<br /><br />The Hobbit is being shot in 5K resolution - 5120x2700 pixels - and 48 frames per second. Traditionally, Hollywood movies have been shot in 24 frames per second, and with 48 frames per second you can expect the same cinematic movie experience but images will appear smoother. Peter Jackson is very excited about the move to 48 frames per second, and he believes that it’s; <i>"like the back of cinema has had a hole cut out of it, where the screen is, and it's like you're looking into the real world”</i>.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/thehobbit-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/thehobbit-1.jpg" alt="The Hobbit will debut in December 2012 in 3D and 2D" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>The Hobbit will debut in December 2012 in 3D and 2D</i></p><br />Peter Jackson also reveals that The Hobbit is being shot in 3D. All scenes are created in full 3D-resolution and The Hobbit will be released in both 3D and 2D. The Red Epic cameras have no built-in 3D-mode, so instead the film crew has created a mirror-solution in collaboration with a company called 3ality.<br /><br />Even the concept drawings have been created in 3D.
