What is Visual Effects?
You might have seen films with heavy visual effects and heard people say ?The visual effects were amazing!?, but what exactly are visual effects and how do they work? In this post, I m going to give you a rough overview of the possibilities that visual effects can offer.
“Visual effects (commonly shortened to Visual FX or VFX) is the term used to describe any imagery created, altered, or enhanced for a film or other moving media that cannot be accomplished during live-action shooting. In other words, much of the art of visual effects takes place in post-production, after primary image capture is complete.
Visual effects can be added to live-action, captured through techniques such as matte painting; rear- and front-screen projection; miniature or forced perspective sets; computer graphic objects, characters, and environments; and composting of images recorded in any number of ways.”
Career in 3D Animation & Visual Effects (VFX)
After learning foundational art and computer animation skills and exploring a variety of 3D animation disciplines, you may elect to specialize in Visual Effects. Visual Effects (VFX) are any effects digitally created or enhanced for a movie, TV, or video game production. The goal of all visual effects is to keep the audience focused on the story and characters, and good VFX artists are judged by their ability to make the impossible seem absolutely real.Students specializing in Visual Effects most often go on to work as VFX or Pre-Visualization artists in film, TV, and video games.
