Is Avatar a live action film with CG elements or a CG film with live action elements? What do you think?

Actually it’s both… Many locations (like human base on Pandora) were built especially for the movie, when all the Pandora-jungle stuff is 100% CG. Now for the blue Na’vi inhabitants of Pandora – real actors were playing them (the ones that recorded voices). After taking real shots the CG models were animated basing on the actors play. What’s interesting is that the movie crew have constructed two special cameras to make the movie – one that can shoot 2D + 3D in the same time. Another had the live preview option – the camera operator could see the CG models animated live inside the digital jungle environment (while in reality actors were running around the room with gray walls dressed in those funny outfits used for motion capture) when making movie shots.

Find some “Avatar – making of” on youtube, it’s really interesting how they made the movie.
