The exact meaning of VFX

In short, VFX is abbreviated of Visual Effects which is a process of making an imaginary image or footage which includes manipulating or enhancing real word image or footage that has been captured with a digital camera. In other words, the imagery created, manipulated, or enhanced for any film, or other moving media shooting cannot be possible during a live shoot.

VFX is the integration between actual footage and this manipulated imagery to create realistic looking environments for the movies, advertisements, and the games. These environments created are either too dangerous to actually shoot, or world that just doesn’t exist. They use a computer and particular software to make it possible. VFX producers communicate with directors and cinematographers to determine which particular scenes require VFX.
