About the Program
No movie today is completed without the use of digital enhancements. A compositor is responsible for layering all digital effects in the final movie, including color correction, integration of rendered 3-D models, object removal, and set extensions. The visual effects compositing major gives you experience creating effects for video in both live action and computer-generated integration.
