Have you seen any television program or movie that includes magic, unusual happenings or impossible stunts performed by actors? Ever wondered how come they perform such tasks so easily? If you know, then you might be well aware of the use of computer technology in the television industry. Undoubtedly, all these stunt and magic are performed by the actor, but indeed they are customized by the computer to show it the way you want. Computers have brought numerous opportunities to enhance the television industry. In the later paragraphs, you may read about how computer helps to insert special effects to actors or animate fictional characters.
Designing a character
If you have seen the cartoons, you may have clearly observed that the characters in it are not real actors, who may have been transformed into cartoons by the computers. Instead they are individual characters. These characters are designed on different softwares by expert graphic designers. They are given a 3D and original touch and so they look alike humans but in a cartoon format. Also, fancy, influential and informative logos are designed by the graphic designers so symbolize a company. The logo plays a vital role in promoting the company. Therefore, in the initial stage, computer helps to design multiple characters and logos and provides a perfect platform for all designers to work.
Secondly, special effects are inserted in to the created characters. With advanced technology and using latest software, it has become possible to move every single pixel of an image. This allows a picture to be viewed from different dimensions and given different angle looks. For example, a character can be viewed from the rear side, can be zoomed or even rotated.
Very similar to special effects, animation allows a picture to move and perform actions. In the former times, animations were made by creating a series of frame, in which each picture was slightly different from the other one. The frames were then customized by computer and produced in a video format. This process was pretty much time consuming and expensive. However, with the emergence of new technology, designers may have to create just a starting and ending frame and insert it into the computer. The computer itself detects and creates the animation at a rate which is determined by the designer. The computer has completely revolutionized the way in which graphic images and animations were made.
All this was pertaining to animation; however, you will now read how magic and action stunts are performed. This is all the game of how the video is shot. The video is then inserted into the computer and using special software, some background effects are included in it. For example, you may have watched Harry Potter and the deathly hallows. You will have observed how the train moves in the beginning and how light appears when either of the characters moves their wands. In actual, the movie is shot with very simple stunts. The computer then enhances its quality and makes it appear the way you want it to. So enjoy watching the magical stunts!
