Is (2D/3D) matte painting one of the most important part of vfx? It seems like literally every movie/tv series uses a billion of it in every scene even if the show is based on real environment.
>>586420if you look at breakdowns and making offs it seems like it yes. the amount of greenscreens nowadays is alot. i personally like matte paintings even in movies with a simple approach on environments. its just a really subtle art aswell as it can ascend to the most important vfx feature of the movie. matte paintings and set extensions are compared to other departments cheapest and easiest to produce. therefore its used alot in hollywood productions. full cg environments as well as charakters are more expensive still. i wouldnt fully agree that its the most important part since vfx needs to be seamlessly integrated in the movie no matter what part.
