The VISUAL EFFECTS Workfl ow

In this book “visual effects” includes graphics, captions, subtitles, as well as computer-generated (CG) objects, characters and environments. Like their counterparts in the other workfl ows, 3D Visual Effects teams aim to generate the best imagery possible using the resources available. While a detailed explanation of 3D visual effects techniques is outside the scope of this book, we can introduce distinctions that can help you determine the best course of action for your show in terms of both planned visual effects shots and unplanned “fi x-it” shots.
