2. Difference Between Special Effects(SFX) and Visual Effects(VFX)

After understanding Visual Effects and their perspective in Films, TV shows and Gaming. Let’s understand, the difference between Special effects(SFX) and Visual Effects(VFX) because most of the time ‘Visual effects’ are misunderstood as ‘special effects’.

Special effects are nothing but the enhanced activities(Gun Shots, Fake Blood) which are conducted during the filmmaking process and act as a catalyst to support the prime purpose of visual effects(VFX) that is done in the post-production process. So the major difference between SFX and VFX is Special Effects(SFX) are realized during the shooting of a film, or TV show whereas Visual Effects(VFX) are usually done after the filmmaking process.

For example, we all are very familiar with the famous TV Show named ‘The Walking Dead’ which is highly famous for its zombies, bloodlust, and Gore scenes, so if we analyze, this TV show is the best example for understanding Special Effects(SFX) in-depth as they have created world-class zombies in the show with the help of special effects, whereas there are various moments in the show where scenes are artificially created to create an overall stunning visual experience of the show. At MAAC Vasai, students are not only made to familiarize themselves with high-tech technology but also taught how to apply knowledge based on changing situations and conditions in Industries by building a strong foundation of soft skills and knowledge along with hard skills.

3. Types of Visual Effects (CGI, Compositing, and Motion Capture)?

After understanding Visual Effects and the major differences between VFX and SFX in the filmmaking process, let’s widen our knowledge to more specific aspects of Visual Effects(VFX). Visual Effects may seem to be creative and simplistic but the reality is always misleading. Instead, Visual Effect is a complex process as it has multiple aspects attached to it. So to decode this process, let’s dive into three main types of Visual Effects(VFX) which are conducted in the post-production phase of filmmaking either it can be conducted simultaneously during the actual shooting of the film, TV show, etc with the help of VFX artists or dedicated studios (MoCap Studios). Three main types are ‘Computer Generated Imagery(CGI)’, ‘Compositing’ and ‘Motion Capture’, and many more. So, to carry out Visual Effects(VFX) in films, VFX artists always use different types of tools that help them to blend reality with fantasy and as markets and industries are evolving at a much higher pace, each day new tools and software are introduced to make Visual Effects(VFX) process easy to approach, but above everything, every software is used to serve one purpose that is to provide some depth in ‘unreal’ imageries to make an audience believe it's real’. So let's get into depth about all three main types of VFX individually.

Computer Generated Imagery(CGI)

‘CGI’ is an abbreviated term for Computer Generated Imagery. CGI is a process of creating still or animated imagery and visuals with help of different computer software. 3D Imaging or 3D Rendering are two main essential synonymous terms associated to define complex CGI. CGI helps to create almost everything that is required in a film, TV shows, Games, etc ranging from characters to complex sceneries along with special effects which is not possible to shoot in the actual filmmaking process, so the creation of everything is backed by a sensational CGI process. The technique of CGI is used in almost every possible industry like Advertising, Films, TV Shows, Games, Architecture, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Arts, etc. The major two ways to perform CGI is through advanced complex algorithms and by using high-tech software.

VFX Compositing

After CGI, this is the second type of Visual Effects(VFX). Compositing is the technique of creating a stunning visual by combining multiple images. ‘Double Exposure’ effect in films, TV Shows, etc. VFX Compositing is the technique of Advance Filmmaking which has a wide range that includes, Green Screen, CGI, and Rotoscoping. So, Compositing is nothing but a combination of multiple visuals to create a single scenery. Compositing can be conducted live on-set in-camera or in the post-production process. The best example to understand VFX Compositing is weather forecasting done by news anchors where weather report is displayed behind them.

Motion Capture

So, to understand Motion Capture in an accurate way then we have to first understand the technique of ‘Rotoscoping’. Rotoscoping is a technique used in earlier days of filmmaking still we can find a trace of it everywhere in films. Rotoscoping is a technique that takes live-action footage and is used to trace actual footage frame by frame. After tracing live actions, animations were applied so to overlay an actual motion picture. Rotoscoping has immense importance in the world of animation which is constant to date. Rotoscoping was the base of filmmaking in earlier days of post-production in filmmaking. So, let’s discuss ‘Motion Capture’ which can be considered as the descendent of the evergreen rotoscoping technique. To understand it in detail, then motion capture is nothing but a sophisticated form of rotoscoping which relies completely on computer-generated movements and special effects. So, to relate motion capture with rotoscoping, then motion capture uses the fragments of rotoscoping in which live actions are taken which is considered the foundation of the animated picture but in this case, instead of tracing it frame by frame, this is done by computer software and specialized techniques. The best example of Motion Capture is movies like, ‘Dawn of the planet of apes’, ‘Lord of the rings’, ‘Avengers’ and all Disney movies.
