The first test footage of Avatar 2 was shown off at SIGGRAPH 2013

For years, most have been wondering when we'd start properly hearing about James Cameron's sequel to Avatar. Well, James' partner, Jon Landau, took the stage of SIGGRAPH, showing the public their first test footage for the upcoming movie.




The test footage unveiled a "noticeable improvement" in their virtual camera techniques, with a much higher quality output in a scene that involved a human and a Na'vi walking around on the surface of Pandora. The presentation happened at the Autodesk Users Group event during SIGGRAPH, with Landau stressing that this test footage was from several months ago, and it isn't at the point that they'd like to be.


There's much more to read about the test footage at SIGGRAPH at The Hollywood Reporter. I'm hoping for a huge leap in special effects, considering the entire movie pretty much happens inside of a 'virtual world'.
