Michael Bay has revealed that Avatar director James Cameron encouraged him to make Transformers: Dark of the Moon in 3D.

The filmmaker said that Cameron has been getting increasingly frustrated with the standard of some 3D releases and felt that the new Transformers blockbuster could do the format justice.

"Jim Cameron wanted me to do 3D. He said, 'You're the type of director that would do state-of-the-art'," Bay told Digital Spy.

"He's been a little bummed out that so many movies are doing it poorly. They use it as an afterthought instead of a forethought and we had to invent a lot of different types of equipment because it's still a new technology. It adds so much to this movie in 3D."

Asked what Cameron thought of the latest Transformers blockbuster, Bay replied: "He saw it in 2D because it wasn't completely finished. He saw 20 minutes of 3D footage, but he leaned at the end of the movie, looked at me and goes, 'Effing epic!'

Transformers: Dark of the Moon opens in UK and US cinemas on Wednesday.
