Multimedia designing is the act of working out the form of something which is attractable with all the senses by the use of different multimedia elements like text, image, video, audio, graphics as per requirement. The person who designs is a designer, who works professionally in one of the various design areas, usually also specifying which area is being dealt with (such as a fashion designer, concept designer or web designer).
A graphic designer is responsible for the layout and presentation of different types of media (such as a poster, a package or a website), most likely with the use of a graphics software program such as Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop or In Design. Elements used in graphic designing include photos, illustrations, shapes, color, texture, etc. Graphic designers work on creating logos, websites, business cards, advertisements, brochures, hoardings, product packaging, posters, book designs, magazine and newspaper layouts, as well as a vast variety of other communication-related products. Graphic designers need to up-date with the latest trends in the creative field.
The creation of moving pictures in a two-dimensional environment, such as through “traditional” cel animation or in computerized animation software. 2D animation involves the creation of a high volume of separate drawings that define a sequence. These drawings are then traced with ink onto transparent celluloid sheets called cel, which are scanned and painted using a special application software. These cels are layered on top of each other to create a sequence. The sequence is later edited to synchronise the audio and video content. This technique is widely used in creating characters for animations and cartoon programmes.
The creation of moving pictures in a three-dimensional digital environment. This is done by sequencing consecutive images, or “frames”, that simulate motion by each image showing the next in a gradual progression of steps, filmed by a virtual “camera” and then output to video by a rendering engine. 3D objects are constructed using curves or 2D geometric figures. 3D Software programmes are used to modify the texture, light and color of the object surface. Virtual cameras are used to zoom, focus, illuminate and resize the 3D objects. This technique is commonly used to create animation for television programmes, movies and online and console games.
Merging all the component elements of each frame and adding completeness to the film occurs when all the components like the backgrounds, sets, props and characters are put together, special effects added and edited with sophisticated transitions and cuts used.
Visual effects involve the integration of live-action footage and generated imagery to create environments which look realistic, but would be dangerous, costly, or simply impossible to capture on film. Visual effects are often integral to a movie’s story and appeal. Although most visual effects work is completed during post-production, it usually must be carefully planned and choreographed in pre-production and production. Visual Effects are designed and edited in Post-Production, with the use of graphic design, modeling, animation and similar software, while Special Effects are made on set, such as explosions, car chases and so on. A visual effects supervisor is usually involved with the production from an early stage to work closely with production and the film’s director to achieve the desired effects. Digital Fusion, Combustion and After Fx are the software’s used for industrial compositing . color keyer , rotoscoping artist, vfx artist and creative Director are the different stages In this field.
Editing is the process of selecting and preparing language, images, sound, video, film, Computer Graphics through processes of correction, condensation, organization, and other modifications in various media. A person who edits is called an editor. Editing is a practice that includes creative skills, human relations, and a precise set of methods.
Video editing is the process of editing segments of motion video footage, special effects and sound recordings. In theory and the use of non-linear and linear editing systems. Using video or film, a director can communicate non-fictional and fictional events. The goals of editing is to manipulate these events for better or for worse communication. It is a visual art. Film editing is part of the process of filmmaking, which involves selection and combining of shots into sequences and is art of storytelling.
Film editing is often referred to as the “invisible art” because when it is well-practiced, the viewer can become so engaged that he or she is not even aware of the editor’s work. A film editor must creatively work with the layers of images, story, dialogue, music, pacing, as well as the actors’ performances to effectively “re-imagine” and even rewrite the film to craft a cohesive whole. Editors usually play a dynamic role in the making of a film. The temporary elements are usually replaced with more refined final elements by the sound, music, and visual effects teams hired to complete the picture. Editing Software’s are Adobe Premiere, Avid Express Pro, Final Cut Pro.. etc..
