360 Degree VR VFX:-

While the 360 Degree revolution is mostly seen as being limited to VR games, the fact is that movies have a bright prospect of utilizing the technology for some amazing experiences, specifically the ones that are created for home viewers. Add in some 3D effects using stereo/mono roto processes and filmmakers can create a whole new style of movies.

Motion Control:-

Motion Control cameras are one of the most exciting trends in the world of VFX today. This technique is mostly useful when one needs to repeat a camera motion for compositing or while capturing high-speed motion or high frame rate that needs to be revealed in slow motion with some added movement.


De-Ageing will play a big role in the upcoming films. Last year audience met a much younger Robert Downey Jr in the last installment of Captain America. Recently the De-Ageing process has progressed in such a way that no one could have imagined a few years back. Another instance of De-Ageing is in the film of Robert De Niro.

Parallel Storytelling:-

It is expected to become a rage over the next few years. The best example of parallel storytelling is the famous advertisement “Honda the Other Side”, in this advertisement two stories run parallelly. Only after pressing the R button on the keyboard, one can jump to the other side of the story which is completely different from the other.

Invisible Effects:-

Invisible effects are not as invisible that one may think of it. However, there’s a very less chance of viewers to notice it. With all invisible effects, VFX artists can now fix small continuation errors, set issues, dress issues and even the makeup. It looks fascinating, that how an artist can easily fix these issues which could have been disastrous.


Hollywood & Bollywood films use VFX to produce awesome effects & realistic environments in films. Through visual effects, the artists can make interesting things happen in movies – bomb blasts, natural disasters, flying objects, superpowers, etc. – that are difficult or impossible to shoot in real life.
