Visual effects, or VFX, are effects used in film post-production to create and enhance scenes. They can be used to add objects that don’t exist in the real world, remove objects that are present, or change the appearance of existing objects. VFX artists use a variety of different software to create their effects, and they often collaborate with other professionals such as animators, designers, and editors.

In recent years, VFX has become increasingly popular and an important of a film’s post-production. This is due in part to the advances in technology that have made it possible to create more realistic and convincing visual effects than ever before. Due to this, visual effects are now an essential part of most films, whether a blockbuster or a small independent film.

As a result, VFX artists have never been in higher demand, and the field of VFX is only expected to continue to grow in the years to come.
