When live-action background plates are filmed during principal photography, computer animators and the VFX team are on the set throughout this process, taking detailed measurements and lighting references from all angles. The data gathered is then downloaded into the computers so that the digital characters can be properly lit to match their live-action environment.
Once a visual effects shot is completed and the sequence has been cut together by the director and an editor, the VFX artists will position a rough-animation of a character into the background plate for the director to view and analyze. After the director approves the shot or sequence, more detailed animation work begins.
Other visual effects work includes digitally painting a sky or ocean or removing the shadow of a crew member who is mistakenly in the shot. Sometimes the weather does not always cooperate when shooting on location.
For that reason, visual effects artists may be called upon to make the sky bluer - or not.
