Introduction to VFX

What are Visual effects?

Visual effects (also known as VFX) is an integral component of storytelling and gameplay immersion. They serve to convey mood, evoke emotions, and communicate vital information to players. A well-executed visual effect can enhance gameplay feedback, guide player actions, and amplify the overall aesthetic appeal of a game.

A visual effect can be composed of multiple components including particle systems, custom shaders, materials, animation and post processing.
