Abstract

The purpose of this research is to investigate the principle of the VFX effect. The term “the real” was used in this paper to refer to physical objects and their physical properties; in other words, that which exists around us. Then, the word “reality” was used in this paper to mean, the feelings in the mind of the viewer and their physical properties; in other words, things that are seen and felt. We used a special photographic technique. This technique makes real scenery look like a photo of a miniature. We called this technique “the miniature effect.” The causes of the miniature effect have been explained in many previous researches. The principle of this technique includes both the use of specific film and photo techniques. Another technique makes a miniature model look like real scenery. This effect is called “the VFX effect” in this paper. We can use the shooting technique to achieve this effect in movies including VFX. The academic research about the causes of the VFX effect is sparse. We think these two effects have the same principle, in spite of the different feelings we get from them. In other words, these are optical illusions about the size of things we see. The causes of the miniature effect have been explained in many previous researches. Therefore, we can investigate the principle of the VFX effect using the principle of the miniature effect. That is goal of this research.
