The process of putting together a film is painstakingly painful, even if we have evolved from the manual process of putting together drawing pictures as it was in the 70s. Currently, it would help if you had different departments to keep tasks organized and maintain a smooth workflow. One way is by using a VFX pipeline, which is an exceptionally efficient and organized system of breaking down the workflow into logical segments.
We have experience building a VFX pipeline and know all the ins and outs of building the entire system from the ground. Our understanding helps us fit together essential components and build workflows that power up the creative process.
How we manage an efficient VFX pipeline
Manage the team
A lot has changed about the VFX production pipeline, except the need for human input. The best VFX pipeline is of no great use if you cannot hire or manage an excellent team to work its various segments. Our team is interdependent to get the job done and make sure the project is in excellent running condition. The team has an individualized working approach and knows who handles each section of the project. As a result, it is easy for us to communicate at each juncture of the project, clarify the most important details and save massive time going back and forth on different details. Transparent project planning
Holding a kick-off meeting is the best way to keep the entire team in context with the project. We intend to have everyone on the same page at all times and offer to hold consistent meetings to produce better and more significant results.
The team brings routine documentation to each meeting and puts together a detailed plan to keep everyone on track. We regularly communicate with various team members and communicate critical information like the milestone so we know what is due at the next production stage.
How VFX pipeline works
The initial step of working with the VFX pipeline is to develop the correct technique and goal for your project. Most people prefer sophisticated graphics to match industry standards; hence we have to schedule a consultation to get an accurate idea of what you need. Our team will use that data to line up all the roles of different team players, such as the programmers, graphic artists and mathematicians.
The next step is to create a rough project draft that will later be converted to a professional VFX shot. This step is critical because it lets us know what the final project will look like.
The creation process has crucial and extensive aspects of merging all the different details of refining the project. Some of these creative processes include:
- 3D modelling
The entire process has multiple intricate steps that should blend to form a seamless image. We want to give you an accurate product and would love to book a consultation when you contact us online or call any of our offices at 310.458.6484 Los Angeles/917.551.5955 New York/604.260.4588 Vancouver.
