They showed a lot of creativity in these early days. I think modern filmmakers become too dependent on CGI and it gets overused. I remember the early 2000's there was a ton of movies that used early CGI that looked terrible and now it looks completely dated. I think the best is when you don't notice the effects are there, this way it won't date the movie.

@Grace Ross Its a common misconception that CGI is cheaper, in fact most of the time it is not cheaper in total numbers than "handmade" effects. The main advantage of CGI is, you have more control over it, bc its made in post production and not during shooting and bc its not part of the shooting process, the director saves time, which means the studios save money

@Lukas Sprehn Well be against inflation as easy it is . Star Wars sequels ( 7,8,9 ) weren't needed we those adult and who has read the books knows the story . So it was only made for the politically correctness, feminism and lgbtq purpose as kinda all movies that got made between 2008-2022 era all with hidden messages and what not . Give me a valid reason why the Tomb Raider movie with Vikander as actress was good for ? Besides the two Tomb Raider's movies with Angelina Jolie that was close to the game content and yes the "boobs" cliché was the fake code so means you didn't get it at first view . To me Vikander's Tomb Raider belongs to feminism and lgbtq same as todays new Predator movie "Prey" so called as prequel which is fake to me plain simple . The main protagonist a woman from a certain tribe fails to kill a bear but can kill an alien with superpowers and the males from her tribe are like clowns ....yeah right open a history book it was men that sacrificed their lives to their beloved one not what they teach us today . For me the movie sector is so good as done . If none can make real movies anymore like those from between 1950-1995 with real quality and fun and not ghink about the money first . Why i hate Asylum b-movies alot they cannot to original stuff like back then b-movies from Italia and Spain or even France . Americans were happy to see those .... Strange enough there's no real merit in the French horror style given by real horror movie fans enthousiasts like Martyrs , La Horde , Frontière, etc... a few mention them same goes for the Dutch movie De Lift ( the elevator ) an old 80's classic . CGI is a tool to help you where nothing else can be done . Really CGI blood ? CGI explosions in a wasteland ? CGI fake nose or eye ? To me blockbusters with their 300+ billion dollars are fake since the late 90's to today . Alot could be done cheaper .

My favorite rear projection driving sequence was from the Paris flashback in CASABLANCA. Bogart and Bergman are blissfully "driving" along, with scenes of Paris roads behind them. During a continuous shot of the actors, the rear-screen image crossfades to a different street! It's jarring, if you catch it.

Small correction: the shot of Tippi Hedren driving from 'The Birds' is referred to as an example of "rear projection", but the shot was actually achieved as a Sodium Vapour Process Composite (a Travelling Matte technique that took advantage of the narrow spectrum of light produced by Sodium Vapour lamps, which could be filtered out using a specially created dichroic prism without affecting the overall colour of the live action elements, unfortunately the process fell into disuse because only a few of the prisms used were ever successfully manufactured and the process required a purpose-built two-strip camera to film with).

Original matte paintings were not put in afterwards, as stated (although this did begin to happen with the introduction of digital effects); the original matte paintings were on glass, and the cameras filmed live performers on sets through the holes in the painting, meaning the complete shot was done in camera, matte and all. Sometimes, as possibly in the Citizen Kane clip, extra holes were left or cut in the painting, which could then allow for some movement to be made behind it, to disrupt what might otherwise look like a flat still picture. Absolute works of art, matte paintings!

@Lukas Sprehn wow the amount of opinions flying around here is ridiculous! ill give everyone a hint! matt painting were invented first, optical printing came later, meaning BOTH methods were used at one point or another but origionally they HAD to be done in camera because if you masked off the area and re ran the film to photograph over the blacked out section you would be re exposing the film and the edges might not line up causing 'GHOSTING' or seeing one image through the other, far simpler to replace the black out mask with theactual painting on glass and film through it, you can stare right down the camera to see if youve blended the lines correctly and adjust studio lighting to make the set match the painting in real time, the optical printer allowed you to alter the matt and substitute another later on if designs were not finalised or a director changed his mind about the look of the shot in post production, but of course optical printers really came into their own after people reaalised they could combine not just two images but MANY, for star wars every time you see multiple spaceships on screen every single one was photographed seperately as were the stars, by this point the tech was good enough that it all moved to post production

Not entirely correct. They invented optical printers in between those eras that allowed you to add it afterwards, but still in camera as you would simply record film, layered, in the optical printer.

Some were done in camera. I know that for some 1980s t.v. "glass shots" were used. The painting, on glass, was positioned correctly then the scene was shot. This worked if, for example, the actors did not move much or the painting was in the upper part of the frame, so there was no danger of them moving "behind" the painting. If you were careful about actor/prop. movement the effect could be achieved in-camera.
Ambrose Wolfinger

This is not entirely true. There were a number of ways matte paintings were done, depending on the FX artist. Some were done in Optical Printers, some were actually on Glass right in front of the camera with the actors working behind the glass and some were done latently on the the same piece of film., literally blacking off a section of the camera lens, then rewinding the film and shooting the same film with the matte painting. There are a few documentaries on the history of matte process. Lock for names like Albert Whitlock, Peter Ellenshaw, Matthew Yuricich... it is remarkable artistry and frankly, a lot of these matte paintings were unnoticeable.

Although not touched on here, one thing I will always admire is the practical effects of the 80's right before CGI took off, when the practical effects were at their peak. I'm not a fan of horror, but it always boggles my mind the sorts of practical effects seen in in movies like The Thing or The Fly. CGI is getting better all the time and I'm all for that, but it has yet to replace the sensation of something physically there.

Exactly I feel the same way. But shows like the mandalorian and the dark crystal mix both. Movies like Jurassic Park also do the same. To me that's the best way to do it.

To be honest I prefer the labor and love used to give the audience the belief of the movie magic. They missed out to mention the films that used a mixed use of traditional and CGI FX's. The T-rex from Jurassic Park is a perfect example of a mastery of combining two styles.

You can even tell that they choose to point out the audience on the sides rather than the center area, either because they looked too good or because they were fooled by it and assumed the painted people were only on the sides.

@Wildman2012 I know they couldn't take the time out to do the proper research on the special effects of the original King Kong, thus making it sound more crude than the actual process was.

Many 90's B-movies were excellent too as many of them surpas easily todays CGI . To me all the movies made in 2000's dates badly as you can eaily see the errors and mistakes . It makes it very hard to watch movies today since nothing is natural anymore . Even the colors used in todays movies annoys me ( the blue, green, yellow-ish ) instead to stay natural .

@Hero Destrin I think the best use of CGI is to enhance certain shots, like adding depth and detail to backgrounds, or removing or masking items in the shot that can't be removed by other means. Those things (generally) aren't as noticable, if at all, and do serve a very good use. It's the moving entities that still look off to me. Something about the weight of the characters, and the feeling that they aren't 'really' there with the actors take away from the effect for me. This will likely improve over time, of course, but until then, their presence is still jarring.

@Anton Ekstrand CGI has become incredibly good as of late, and it's exponentially getting better. Yes, what you said is correct, but I don't think today's effects are worse by any means back then. They keep looking better and better because we keep advancing. However script writing sure has taken a turn for the worse lol.
Anton Ekstrand
Anton Ekstrand Yıl önce
@KAP Animations There is a common conception I think that things in general always move in a certain direction, in this case the improvement of what's considered 'realistic' on screen. But just as with say script writing, the trajectory is often way more bumpy than that. As you say, Jurrasic Park in my opinion has way better special effects than the newer entries in the series. The relative restraint in using CGI probably has something to do with it. Now I do think things have become better when it comes to special effects in the past decade. The CGI definitely looks more impressive today than in the early 00's. The movies in general are abysmal in comparison, but even though film makers still over use CGI, at least that aspect of modern movies isn't really what worries me anymore.

Citizens crowd in the foreground is also a matte painting. So in a sense Citizen Kane is a two stage approach to it. Foreground was „animated“ with light just enough to make it look lively enough to ignore the more static matte painting in the background on the first watch

Sadly, the great special effects master, Douglas Trumbull, passed away early this month. He created the special effects and miniatures for 2001, A Space Odyssey (1968), and Blade Runner (1982). It's amazing how good they look even at this date. Foe Blade Runner, he used smoke to make his miniature city look realistic as the focus got hazier, the further you looked into his city. Practical miniature effects can be amazing when done well. The Blue Danube scene from 2001 is still awe-inspiring and I even still like the opening shot of The Poseidon Adventure (1972) with its massive ship ( a copy of the Queen Mary) sailing through rough waters.

I wonder how prevalent these LED Boxes like used in Mandalorian will become? I'm sure there must be some quite steep limitations somewhere, but they seem like an extremely useful tool which is a massive stepup from green screen (the fact that the actors are able to see more of their environment must surely be a boon, although I wonder if it will ruin spontaneity a little since all the camera movements need to be preprogramed

Why do you think the camera movements need to be pre-programmed? There have been several instances of a handheld virtual camera being used in real-time in virtual environments.

What always amazes me when I see actual matte paintings and actual miniatures that were used in movies is that matte paintings often lack detail. Brush strokes are left in but they don't show up on screen. Miniatures are the opposite-- they have amazing detail and the workmanship is extraordinary. Small details like rust or wear and tear are carefully painted on the model.

It's part of the illusion with matte paintings to lack detail... If it had sharper images we might focus on them... but by lacking detail our brain ignores the background and focus on the live action... that and it's cheaper to paint.

"Outdated"? "Primitive"? "Low-tech?" Lady, you've got the wrong idea here. These cinematic achievements represent brilliant ideas executed with great finesse, especially for their time. If anything, the incessant presence of CGI is stifling artistic creativity in the modern day, just as digital instruments eventually led to the dumbing down of the music industry. The difference between something like traditional animation vs computer animation, is that animation used to be about expression. It was about how you could express unbelievable things beyond our wildest imagination. CGI gives you exactly what you want right then and there. It's no longer about how the object can be expressed in splendid artistic fashion, but how many things we can fit on the screen at one time. Maybe you need to rethink this perspective of yours.

I always picture the Wizard of Oz characters breaking through a matte painting before the director yelled 'CUT'. Note: Harryhausen. He's DA MAN!. I still love Jason and the Argonauts.

I really miss the use of miniature models. Too much CGI today.

5:50 The same technology was used in Germany by Fischerkoesen. I have doubts that they get the equipment from Disney. You can notice this in the start of the "Wheaterbeaten Melody" a cartoon, where a wasp found a gramophone and noticed, that her sting could play the record and finally all little animals on the meadow helped her, to play the record with a Gernan song "Would the week have no Sunday, the life wouldn't be half as nice, Sunday I take a walk with my sweetheart"

Imagine how weird it would feel to play an animal in a movie. They better get paid well

Andy Serkins' (?) Caesar in the Apes franchise is one of the most iconic out there, but his character was humanized. Though Im yet to see an interview with that kind of question.
The most amazing part, is back in the early film making days, they did not have computers to do any of the work. Everything had to be done manually with physically splicing film. Far more tedious and difficult! So even though these effects may be crude compared to today's standards, they were still pretty amazing accomplishment's for the time, considering what they had to work with or lack of!

Low tech experiments of the past? I'm pretty sure that was ground breaking stuff at the time it was done.

Honestly this is what makes me want to be in the Movie business, Acting business or just outright make a amazing movie. Today Movie making and video production is more straight forward using either Blue or Green Screens, But Now Blue Screens are the biggest Movie production. I've worked with both Green Screen and Blue Screen and finding how they managed movies back before I was even born and how movies handled "CGI" Was more physical based and painted on or drawed... Something like Tim Burton films, Especially time Burton films using Stop animations is revolutionary and I fully admit that Stop Animation movies was or is still popular in my opinion. Again, Movie Production is one of the biggest things that go oversighted and the Visual effects teams are usually unappreciated because of the Marvels "Icon" Actors, But the real people who made that movie and made the Actors career is the people of the production. WIthout them, These movies would never be possible. Take a moment to thank people of the production and Art Designers, Video Development and Effects Teams.

See Kubrick probably did one of the best rear projections that I can think of in 200, but I think he also might have the cheeseist looking rear projection in A Clockwork Orange during the driving scenes.

@Charlie OBrien it's a psychedelic 60s future dystopia, and the budget for clockwork orange was low, the scene when their driving looks awful and I don't think it's out of artistic mindset rather than budgetary.

@Gonzo Lonzo I believe he was trying to show the drug addled view they had of themselves after drinking "the milk". The book is a very 60's kind of psychedelia idea of the near future society.

ahhhh yes... modern cinema... where people put more effort in special effects instead of making a well constructed and interesting plot

That’s simply not true. Sure, there are bad movies with fancy special effects tricks. But also good movies. Just like in the past. Go and look - you can find plenty of movies, beginning at the very dawn of cinema, which has clever special effects but where really just horrible movies.

not all film franchises focus all their budget on cgi. an example is marvel. it may look like the only thing they care about is to make vfx look better than others "effortlessly", but actually, if you watch all their movies, you'll notice that they balance them two perfectly.

Wannabe film buffs: "UGH! CGI looks so _FAKE!_ Movies were better back in the old days, when everything was done _PRACTICALLY_ and looked a million times more real!" Old movies: *LITERAL DRAWING ON A WALL*

A lot of cgi is overdone in way to many places or used to create scenes that are visually unrealistic/could never be filmed with a physical camera, does not give the artists enough time and resources to refine the shots. Therefore a lot of CGI turns out bad and looks fake. This is further compounded by how it is shoved in areas of the frame that are designed to get the most attention from the audience. Old matte painting may look less realistic but sometimes the overall effect works better because the scene is shot in such a way that your eyes are drawn to other parts of the frame.

@Johan Lindbäck yeah its such a tired argument that i see in every damn review and comment under every damn film talking about how ppl use too much cgi and it used to all be better. it didn't. every special effect has its faults. i mean back-projecting is not any more convincing than green screen. And anyways when u see videos about the CGI in Parasite you'd be surprised how much CGI is unnoticed by the viewer just for background stuff.

90 percent (or probably more) of the CGI those film buffs see they don't even notice. CGI isn't only used to create fantasy creatures.

Most of old movies didn't used special effects. Nowadays we're using it excessive for every other movies.

I feel like even with bad or dated practical effects, there's still somewhat of a charm in how crude they are, and you can admire the effort. There's nothing charming about bad cgi, it's just gross.
