If you call yourself a computer graphics professional but aren't sure of the meaning of cukaloris, Lambertian reflection, or umbra, you might want to pick up a copy of Visual Effects in a Digital World: A Comprehensive Glossary of over 7,000 Visual Effects Terms. Educational, fun, and historically fascinating, this is one of those books that every pixel monkey should have on his or her shelf.

If you've ever wondered what, exactly, rotoscope means (it has three different meanings) or what to eat with a "metaball," this book is for you. Chock full of interesting tidbits and a 32-page color gallery of examples, this is probably one of the more interesting technical dictionaries you'll ever have the pleasure of looking through.

Perhaps you know the difference between an array and an Arri, but the producer you're trying to explain it to is clueless. The clear, concise definitions listed here can help elucidate these terms and others so that even the most dense suit will, if not understand, at least feel like you must know what you're talking about.

It's one thing to be able to know what buttons to push, but something else entirely to be able to stump your friends with the meaning of arcane terms like Lindenmayer System or octrees. Everyone knows you're a geek. Now you can prove it. --Mike Caputo


As the visual effects industry has diversified, so too have the books written to serve the needs of this industry. Today, there are hundreds of highly specialized titles focusing on particular aspects of film and broadcast animation, computer graphics, stage photography, miniature photography, color theory, and many others. "Visual Effects in a Digital World" offers a much-needed reconsolidation of this knowledge. All of the industry's workers frequently need to understand concepts from other specialties, and this book - the only one of its kind - lets them look up and grasp the basics of any visual effects concept in a matter of seconds. It's a great way for everyone, regardless of experience, to find their way through the jargon and learn what they need to know. It offers an authoritative coverage from a winner visual effects expert - winner of a British Academy Award and two Emmys. It covers topics such as computer graphics, digital compositing, live action, stage, and miniature photography, and a wide range of computer and Internet concepts. It offers job descriptions for positions found throughout the industry.

It demystifies the jargon used by practitioners in every subspecialty.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Exactly what I wanted 26. August 2001
Von Ben Folkman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Karen E. Goulekas has saved me quite some time with this book by providing a complete description for over 7,000 visual effects terms often referred to within the industry. In the past, I often had to search the net for certain terms and descriptions that had me baffled...but no more. For those of you who are considering buying this book, know that it isn't a book full of pictures (Although it does contain 32 pages of colour stills); It isn't a book detailing visual effects work in particular films; It is what is says - 'A comprehensive glossary of over 7,000 visual effects terms'. If this is what you're looking for, this book is for you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great, extremely comprehensive reference 18. September 2001
Von Ron Brinkmann - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I've watched Karen put this book together over the course of the last year or so (even had a chance to give my 2cents on a couple of terms) and so I can hardly be called an Unbiased Reviewer. But now that it's done, I'd have to say that just about anybody who is involved with visual effects (which these days means just about any aspect of filmmaking in general) will find this book well worth owning. And even if you HAVE been in the industry for a long time, I guarantee that you'll be able to learn a few new things (or re-learn a few old things) after thumbing through this book.
3.0 von 5 Sternen I thought it was an ok book. Not crazy about it. 6. März 2013
Von Mike kimble - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Lots of terms but I thought it could have been laid out in a different way. The column style just didn't work for me.

Format: Taschenbuch
From the publisher of 'Art &Science of Digital Compositing'
First of all, This book is not a case by case study book. This is A-Z Dictionary about Visual Effects. I was disappointed by first impression. but it contains huge contents. including 16 pages color pics. May be very helpful students,people who in effects industry.
