At Visual Media, beside just working as VFX Compositor I have given training and classes to many students on After Effects, Eyeon Fusion, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Encore, So while I gave training I used to prepare notes and distribute it to my students. I will be posting those class notes on my blog.
You may learn from and share these notes with others or ask me question related to VFX/ Programming(involved in VFX) as well.
So lets start, What is VFX? What does it stands for?
animation and compositing software. Visual effects are often integral to a movie's story and appeal. Although most visual effects work is completed during post -production, it usually must be carefully planned and choreographed in pre - production and production.
Visual effects are designed and edited in Post-Production, with the use of graphic design, modeling, animation and similar software, while special effects are made on set, such as explosions, car chases and so on. A visual effects supervisor is usually involved with the production from an early stage to work closely with production and the film's director to achieve the desired effects.
