Virtual Production

Virtual production (often abbreviated to VP) is an emerging method that uses a combination of technologies ranging from the use of LED screens, real-time game engines, AI, 5G, cloud rendering and edge computing to combine live action footage and computer graphics in real-time.

Billed as the future of film-making, virtual production is the process of mixing live footage and computer graphics simultaneously, to get real-time feedback and to make decisions on set about composition, VFX and animations. Combining the power and affordability of game engines such as Unreal Engine and Unity and the visualization capabilities of VR, virtual production shifts the pipelines and creative workflows of film-making.
