Welcome to Avatar Answers. What would you like to know?

The entire film was filmed in live-action, but the actors playing Avatars/Na'vi were shot wearing motion-capture suits, skin-tight lycra jumpsuits covered with reflective dots for the computer to track. Later on, they were animated over using the motion-capture as a guide, and the other more "basic" special effects were added in (i.e., scenery and creatures).
