How does Avatar's 3-D work?

    The film Avatar with 3-dimensional projection seems much superior in color, subtlety and naturalness to the 3-D shows of old. How do they do it?

    Advancements in 3-d technology, HD filming for the human parts, bigger HDD in less space for higher quality film. That is my guess anyways.

    The cameras are a lot smaller so you can do more realistic camera moves.
    The system Avatar used can also tilt the cameras toward each other as they get close to an object (like your eyes do), they also generated a lot of the 3d objects completely digitally
