What do you learn?
In this career path, you will learn everything you need to make professional-level visual effects:
- Apply specialized techniques and tools such as tracking planar, rotoscospía and matchmoving (camera tracking) to integrate in a real video actors filmed over green background (keying) or 3D elements.
- Correct the color of a shot, achieve a certain aesthetic or tie the lighting of two shots shot at different times.
- Resolve complicated chrome product of moving images, non-uniform backgrounds, motionblur, poorly lit sets, reflective elements, among others.
- Integrate video with 3D scenes using mapping and mattepainting techniques.
- Introduce yourself in techniques such as rotoscopy for the generation of animated masks with professional level.
- Learn to work with material in 360 grades and introduction to composition for VR (virtual reality)
- Simulate rigid dynamic objects for breakages, demolition and fragmentation; soft simulate dynamic objects such as fabrics and strings.
- Simulate all kinds of fluids, liquids, viscous and gelatinous.
- Generate scenes where explosions with fire, smoke and gases occur.
- Developing stereoscopic content using 2D or 3D material for three-dimensional visualization.
- Make your demo reel. The production of this final project includes a day of filming on set.

Some of the challenges that meet the VFX:
- Create fully digital jacks
- modify funds
- Create funds
- Add actors, characters or creatures; objects and digital scenography in real scenes
- replace actors
- Remove objects, cables, marks and all kinds of real shot elements
- Create digital simulations of natural phenomena

Although visual effects are generally associated with the world of film and TV today their role in industries such as video games, theme parks, Virtual Reality and Transmedia.es increasingly more relevant; as well as its applications in fields as dissimilar as Education and Architecture.
For all this, the demand of specialists able to work in VFX is continuous and with exponential growth.
This career path was developed in close consultation with the main producers of local VFX to know and respond to their needs and update the profile of graduates.
