VFX (Visual effects)

Visual effects (commonly shortened to Visual F/X or VFX) are the various processes by which imagery is created and/or manipulated outside the context of a live action shoot, integrating live-action footage and computer generated imagery (CGI).

Post-production is a process where every step matters and every fine detail is handled with high interest, in order to create environments which look realistic, but would be dangerous, costly, or simply impossible to capture on film.

We can erase any trace, we can place in details that haven’t been there in the first place and we can make it all look more appealing and memorable.

Here are some of the VFX techniques we are using: compositing, rotoscoping, background clean up, blue/green screen integration, 3D match to live action integration, set extension, paint/Roto, multilayer compositing, color correction, creating render layers and specialty passes as well as implementing them in a composite, stabilization/tracking, lighting, and HDR lighting, rope removal.

Compositing fits, anchors and integrates real footage with different elements such as particle effects, matte paintings, 3D objects, atmospheric phenomena etc.

A common application for compositing could be transforming the green screen (chroma key) behind an actor into a computer generated background, seamlessly integrated.

Also typical are touch-ups such as changing information on a license plate or on an ad, as well as applying color correction to adapt or modify the color tone of the film.
