ROTOSCOPE

Now a days, film industry has reached its peak phase both in budget and eye-catching Visual Effects (VFX). Rotoscope is one of the key elements in visual effects which in terms is a separate stream. To add a visual or graphics element to a frame, first, the frame is need to be rotoscoped. As this kind of work is so laborious and needs more experienced artists, it is difficult to find one.

Matchmove

Match move in VFX industry is also referred to as "Motion Tracking". Match move, the name itself says, to match the movement. It is to match computer generated scenes with live action footage, and recreate live action backgrounds in such a way that reflects that camera in everyway. Lets take an example of a 3D model, Hulk in the movie, Avengers. To make this 3D model to look like a real character in the movie, the virtual camera has to move exactly like the real camera which records the live action. The process of matching the movement of live action footage with the virtual camera is called matchmove.

PAINT (Cleanups )

Some of them are set properties or the shadows of the crew entering into the frame are not allowed, and sometimes there would be a need of improving the actor's facial appearance. So, paintworks come into the picture here. The VFX artists carefully remove the flaws and unnecessary objects from the frame. In this way, a phenomenal film can be created.
