Visual Ef­fects So­ci­ety Re­leases Up­date to ‘The VES Hand­book of Visual Ef­fects’

The Visual Ef­fects So­ci­ety has an­nounced the sec­ond edi­tion of The VES Hand­book of Visual Ef­fects.

Hailed as the most com­plete guide to visual ef­fects tech­niques and best prac­tices on the mar­ket to­day, it cov­ers es­sen­tial tech­niques and so­lu­tions for all VFX artists, pro­duc­ers, and su­per­vi­sors, from pre-pro­duc­tion through pro­duc­tion and post-pro­duc­tion.

Edited by VES chair­man and renowned VFX su­per­vi­sor Jef­frey A. Okun and VFX pro­ducer Susan Zw­er­man, the up­date in­cludes the lat­est in­dus­try-stan­dard tech­niques, tech­nolo­gies and work­flows in the fast-paced world of visual ef­fects.

The VES tasked the orig­i­nal au­thors to up­date their ar­eas of ex­per­tise, such as stereo­scopic moviemak­ing, color man­age­ment, fa­cial cap­ture, vir­tual pro­duc­tions, 3D con­ver­sions, com­posit­ing of live-ac­tion and CG el­e­ments and the dig­i­tal in­ter­me­di­ate, as well as to pro­vide de­tailed chap­ters on in­ter­ac­tive games and full an­i­ma­tion.

Ad­di­tion­ally, 50 new con­trib­u­tors – rep­re­sent­ing the best and the bright­est in the in­dus­try – share their proven meth­ods, tricks and short­cuts earned through decades of real-world, hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence.

The VES Hand­book of Visual Ef­fects: In­dus­try Stan­dard VFX Prac­tices and Pro­ce­dures, Sec­ond Edi­tion is avail­able for pur­chase at Ama­zon.com or other lead­ing on­line book­sellers. In-depth bonus chap­ters are avail­able on the all­new com­pan­ion web­site: www.fo­cal­press.com/ cw/zw­er­man.
