There are many things that visual effects are used for. The main use of visual effects is to help tell the story. It is not just action scenes, but there are various effects that can help the audience see things that they wouldn’t have otherwise seen. For instance, in certain racing films, they show the audience the engine at work during a racing scene. Some action films show the inside of the human body while it gets damaged. Other uses of visual effects include manipulating the age, size, and other traits of certain characters and environments. The limit is the imagination.
One company that tests the limits of imagination with visual effects is Pulse Evolution Corporation run by John Textor. John Textor is a producer of large movies as well as a visual effects expert. His company has worked on films such as Pirates of the Caribbean. They have brought out the scale of action and adventure movies as well as some of the smaller scale films that required visual effects. John Textor continues to work with big budget films and improve the craft of visual effects.
When the various types of visual effects are done right, they actually bring the audience into the film. When the effects are not well done, it makes the film look unfinished. It is important to Pulse Evolution Corporation that the film looks complete no matter how little time they are given to work on the post-production effects. In the end, their goal is to bring to life the world that is being presented to the audience.
