1.) Film was, and still is, shot at 24fps. The only outlier (that I know of) was The Hobbit, which was shot at 60fps at 4k, and was shown on select screens at that format. 2.) All still done today. There are some full CG shots, but there is plenty of reference to work from. On a side note, we’re not called ‘graphic designers’ - that’s a term used for 2d stills - print/web work. The correct term is visual effects artists. 3.) This is all true. The post-production schedule has become more and more compressed, and that is causing some films to look sub-standard - absolutely. Fact? Take it down a notch, kid. “Idiot”? “Retard”? Man, get some better adjectives. Is it? I haven’t seen it, but wasn’t impressed by the first one. It’s odd - perhaps because Gary et al rail on most everything, they think giving a positive review on something every now and then gives them the perception of being impartial. As for Dune I (Part I?), the visual effects and environments looked great, I just thought the performances were mostly flat. It’s a shame because I did like Villeneuve‘s work prior to this, for the most part. Respectfully, I’m not sure what your point is here. Gary gave it a positive review, and called it possibly the “best film of the year.” Yes, you are correct. But in the VFX post-production process, lens distortion, film grain, chromatic aberration… etc are all removed - VFX elements are applied - then those lens effects are re-applied digitally (typically in Nuke) before sending to final color. Point being, there can be a lot of tinkering with lens effects that occur after the shoot - even in non-VFX shots. This was no doubt shot digitally. Any lens effects would have been added in post-production. lol! Well done, sir. Awesome work! Can I ask what plugin you used for the clouds and water? Have you seen “Westworld” (1973)? It pre-pre-dates “Halloween” and it’s about a robot who’s programming goes wrong and he starts hunting down humans in the park. Written by Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park), it was way ahead of its time. It was the first time the word “virus” was used to describe a bug in the programming that spreads to the whole network. It has shots from the robot’s POV - pixelated digital-looking shots, and heat-vision. At one point, the robot is damaged, which exposes the metal endoskeleton underneath. Check it out, if you haven’t - it’s a great performance by the late, great Yul Brynner. I was merely pointing out that Maverick’s success is not attributable to Americans alone - so the suggestion that American jingoism is the sole reason the film was successful just doesn’t hold water. Same with Oppenheimer: View all replies >
