I'm surely joining this one, The movie made me speechless.

but i just wanted to ask a question about the avatars, and i hope someone knows it.

when you look at an avatar body and face they seems to have this some sort of white dots all around them and it seems like its glowing. just out of curiosity, are they specular maps?

@Lion`I -Don't know for sure but I'd bet there's probably a dozen or so different maps that all subtly combine to create the skin and glowy dots. Too much bioluminescence in that movie, but that's beside the point. I think I'll create an Avatar rave/rant post eventually.
