Special effects production for feature films and television used to be different creatures. Feature films typically had the big budgets to hire editorial and post-production specialists and leverage top-of-the-line equipment for visual effects (VFX), while episodic television programming teams often had to make do with fewer resources and limited budgets.
Ross Shain (Chief Product Officer, Boris FX) discusses the best techniques and strategies for solving VR post-production hurdles such as working with equirectangular footage, stabilization, removing cameras and working in stereo.
Virtual Sets have become increasingly popular over the years. The competition for the audience is intense, and viewers demand the better quality and the highest realism possible in what they see on television. So using virtual studios is quite interesting for broadcasters of any size, allowing for saving production costs while enhancing their content, therefore what once was a complex tool only reserved for the biggest companies is now a widespread solution.
