I love these videos.
Probably a moronic question but can anyone explain why they say VFX is expensive, and thats why we get shitty stuff in B Movies? Is it expensive because of how much people that use these programs charge, or because top of the line VFX computer programs are expensive?
Is there a limit with how good and real something can look? If you spent a year and the top workers animating a dragon would it be the best thing ever or still look slightly generated?
My criteria for top notch CGI is whether or not I can tell apart the real actors from the dropped in ones. In this case I clearly couldn't
Awesome, do they have stuff like this in the DVD extras? I remember in the old Lord of the Rings extended editions you could watch certain scenes multiple times, all in different stages of VFX processing
