A Visual Effects Breakdown For Captain America: Winter Soldier

The filmmakers creating modern Marvel movies are able to take full advantage of the cutting edge CGI software available today, and those digital effects help make stories about superheroes look far more believable on the big screen.

But a digital artist’s job isn't just to make the effects believable- it's to make the VFX so believable, and so seamlessly integrated into the film, that viewers can’t tell what’s real and what’s CGI.

Here’s a marvel-ous breakdown video that reveals the digital artistry added to Captain America: Winter Soldier by Beijing-based VFX studio BaseFX.

It's interesting to see how much of our favorite films are shot in a total green screen environment nowadays, and even simple stunts are nothing but a pile of polygons nowadays.

Just saw the most recent Avengers movie. The entire opening scene really failed to grab me the way I think they wanted it to; a lot of people being tossed about like CGI ragdolls.
I think we've thrown out "make it believable" for the "make it awesome".
