Compositing - The C Word

Compositors are the masters of make-believe. Responsible for composing the final image by combining layers of existing materials in a visual effects or motion picture sequence, this is the process of creating the illusion of reality - using invisible effects that make the impossible, possible! Once each visual element is combined from the separate sources, the final image creates the illusion that each part comes from the same scene.

The Compositors role

Compositors are the final stage in the VFX pipeline. They collect together assets and elements from all the other artists and combine them together to create the final image you see on screen. They are the magicians behind visual effects; spending their time making things appear and disappear, transporting people from one place to another, and tricking the audience into believing that what they see before them is real.
