GRASP THE POWER OF VFX
The Media and Entertainment industry has enabled the VFX sector to soar greater heights. Visual effects are often integral to a movie’s story and appeal and allow creators and filmmakers to make breathtaking imaginary universes and achieve stunts that would be impossible to film in the real world. Whether it’s creating massive destruction scenes or expanding the scope of production, nearly every film now requires visual effects for support. VFX has a fluid and overlapping pipeline, depending on the storyline of the content being created. For ease of understanding, it is classified into 3 stages:

Course Details

PRE-PRODUCTION

Pre-production starts with the pre-visualization or pre-viz of the story. An integral part of every VFX shoot is the guide during live shoots, for frames and shots. Pre-viz involves story ideation, scriptwriting, storyboarding, animatics, initial concept art, character design, BG design, and the color key for look development.

PRODUCTION

After pre-production, live shoots of the scenes are done using filmmaking techniques. The production stage also includes integrating Computer Generated (CG) characters, background, and effects that blend with live action. CG production consists of 3D modeling, texturing, rigging, animation, lighting, rendering, and FX. The production also involves shooting High-Dynamic-Range Images (HDRI) to create image-based lighting for ‘CG-live Action’ integration.

POST-PRODUCTION

Post-shooting, rotoscopy and clean-up (wire/object removal, etc.) are done for each frame. Going forward, accurate camera tracking is performed, matching the live-action camera along with a CG camera. Artists then create frames and backgrounds for the final output. With matte painting and virtual 3D worlds, artists replace the background and blend it together through compositing so that all visuals from the live-action and CG come together to create a photorealistic output.
