Use of Animation Techniques in the Post-Production Process of Films

The field of animation has a wide application in film production. Its different techniques are used for film shooting and editing processes. The VFX technique is used to incorporate elements that otherwise cannot be shot through live camera due to some constraints. The post-production process witnesses a wide range of functions that are essential to transform the shot rough footage into a fine-tuned steamtable one. Adequate knowledge of the process can be attained through animation courses or specialized post-production programs.

It includes organizing and assembling the footage, putting scenes in a logical order, selecting the best takes, eliminating unnecessary elements and adding special effects to make the scene more impactful. Production sound is synchronized (with the pictures/ videos), edited, rerecorded (if the need arises) and mixed music is composed and added. The Footage is color-corrected and special effects are created. The final movie is output to tape, film, or any other high-quality media format. All these processes require professionals who have mastered the art of multimedia and animation.
