The reason why we think CGI is bad is because we only see bad CGI.
Okay let’s clear our basics first
According to Wikipedia VFX or Visual effects involve the integration of live-action footage and generated imagery to create environments which look realistic, but would be dangerous, expensive, impractical, or impossible to capture on film.
Generally, VFX turns out to be obvious in movies. For example, when Hrithik Roshan was raised from the stage in the movie Guzarish. It is impossible to make a man fly like this in real so that makes us reason out and come to the conclusion that VFX was used.
There is also a thing called invisible VFX which is more magical than the anti-gravity shot you just saw. Invisible VFX tricks you into believing that it’s real. It hides in the background and enhances the scene thus, making it more presentable. If you have ever seen large crowds in scenes of movies and wondered how they managed to get so many people, know that they didn’t. Crowds in movies are usually created digitally. After knowing this fact we are pretty sure you will not trust any backgrounds of any scenes while watching any videos. Not even the real ones.
The quality of VFX in Bollywood is improving day by day. We have seen it improve with time and grow invisible. Today, there are loads of instances from Hindi movies in which it is hard to determine that visual effects were even used. Movies with heavy use of VFX ( like Ra.One) are also being produced in India. The Indian VFX artists do not only work for Bollywood. What if we told you that an Indian firm- Prime Focus was behind the obscurus cloud in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
VFX is a boon for videos/films. Often creating visual effects prove to be cheaper than going to a particular place, finding a particular scenery and shooting. Visual Effects can be termed as “director’s best friend” as they open unlimited possibilities to create the image/film exactly as desired. You can shoot in a studio in India but have Europe in the background. It gives fantasy a possibility to look completely real on screen. Just have a look at our try below
So if you are expecting that you will not get to watch anymore VFX in future you are wrong. The demand for visual effects will keep growing and visual effects will keep getting invisible with time.
