Here’s yet another example of the crazy visual effects found on today’s TV shows — this time it’s from HBO’s series “Game of Thrones“. Just making composites this realistic using still images would be difficult enough, but for video? Wow.
This is one of my favorite series! It is so great story and like you can see very pretty to
Agreed. Very good show indeed.
Can someone explain why these green (or blue) blankets or whatever are placed in seemingly random places and not around whole set where the CGI appears?
Spoilers!!! Who havent seen the series yet… damn it!! I was about to watch e09.
they are used to increase the contrast between for example the actor/object and what needs to be removed. On static things like houses its not that important. But on moving things, like people, its a must to create that contrast so they can cut and paste without any hassle.
They do that to enable easier placement of CG objects behind real things like trees and people. If they were to place blue or green on the entire set it would create a problem known as color spill, essentially making everything close to the green or blue screens have some green or blue light on it (very bad for visual effects). Not to mention the huge expense of all the extra sheeting…
Then dont press play!
Just finished the tv series, now onto the audio books.
this type of work happens every day by digital artists in alot of movies ;-)
