Computer graphics — which were once exclusively postproduction — are now being combined with onset footage in real time. With crews spread out, filmmakers need to harness a combination of software tools to build something new.

Rise of Virtual Production Software

For many, the push to adopt to virtual production software is due to COVID-19.

Remote filmmaking comes with challenges. Studios need to quickly deliver their large assets around the globe. 

Filmmakers need to be able to iterate and send feedback fast. Making informed decisions quickly is vital to creating a seamless experience for studios creating digital environments, and the future audience. 

Tools that match this speed help studios experiment more and deliver unparalleled creativity.
