“Accelerated in part by needs created by the pandemic, motion picture and television crews have witnessed the rapid adoption of virtual production and in-camera VFX techniques.
Virtual production uses technology to join the virtual world with the physical world in real-time. It enables filmmakers to interact with a digital process in the same way they interact with live-action production in real-time. The benefits are clear: improvements to workflow efficiencies, while also providing more creative options. But what is virtual production? The term virtual production is broadly used to describe a wide range of production workflows leveraging computeraided filmmaking tools, such as: world capture (asset scanning and digitization), photo-realistic real-time rendering including previsualization, performance capture (motion and volumetric capture), simulcam (on-set visualization), and, most recognizably, in-camera visual effects (ICVFX).”
