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?


Visual effects involve the integration of live-action footage and generated imagery to create environments which look realistic, but would be dangerous, costly, or simply impossible to capture on film. Visual effects using computer generated imagery has recently become accessible to the Independent filmmaker with the introduction of affordable animation and compositing software.

The recent explosion in digital tools that make flawless compositing, digital sets, and fully computer-generated characters possible and accessible to moving image makers at all levels has made visual effects a standard part of every moving image maker’s tool kit.

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 compositing of images recorded in any number of ways.


So basically, anything that’s difficult to film then we use visual effects to achieve it.


For example, aliens attacking the earth is impossible to film so we use visual effects for all the alien creatures to destroy the city.


This is a very obviously example of visual effects. A lot of time we use visual effects in more subtle areas.


For example, if there’s a scene in the story that needs to be in another country, an imaginary location or a city in the future/past.


It’s just inefficiency to go to another country or build a set. Visual effects in these situation are really helpful.
