WHAT IS
VFX COMPOSITING ?

A Visual Effect Compositor (or Digital Compositor) is the last artist of a long chain. His role is to gather all computer generated imagery (CGI ) from other departments and to compose them into the final footage, like the most advanced patchwork.

 

His skills are as much technical like green screen extraction, tracking or retiming elements as artistic with a great knowledge of light, color and composition. Such artist is able to modify any element (photography, video, painting...) and integrate them in a picture with harmony and precision to create a believable and photographic picture.

 

On a photographic level, a VFX compositor must observe and analyze the world to be able to transcribe it on a realistic level. He must understand how the light in the physical world is reacting and affecting materials (wood, metal, skin...). A lot of physics interact such as reflection, refraction, transparency or subsurface scattering.

• Why is the sky blue ?  What exact blue depicts the dawn, noon or evening ? 

• Does the light react the same on wood, metal and flesh ?

Finally the artist reproduces the artefacts and impurities from the camera such as :

•  grain  •  bloom  •  lens distortion  •  lens flare

• dust and finger prints on the camera.

 

The camera deforms the picture and the spectator has unconsciously integrated these transformations as "this is how a movie looks like", the VFX compositor has to replicate them.

The video below from Roy Peker brilliantly shows the different aspects of the art of compositing
