We all love the movies with striking shots and amazing movie effects. But do you know all of that takes a lot of time and effort, sometimes even months or years to complete? However, thanks to technical advancements, creating a movie is now much easier.
Thanks to Computer Generated Imagery (CGI), filmmakers do not need to employ camera methods, miniatures, or matte paints to achieve spectacular cinematic effects. CGI helps them build and erased background just by using computers. For example, the dinosaurs in “Jurassic Park” were played by actual actors. They wore motion capture suits and special hats and moved like dinosaurs on the set. Then visual effects designers used applications to create spectacular sequences for the movie.
