Top 7 careers for VFX artists

Are you a VFX artist wondering what your career options are in the near future? The gaming and visual effects (VFX) industries are now among those in the entertainment and international media market that are expanding rapidly, this is due to the exponential growth of technology. With a CAGR of 10.9% through 2022, the global VFX market will soon create several new opportunities. By 2028, it is projected to be worth USD 48.9 billion. 

 Today, we are in awe of animation, visual effects, and video game creation. There are hardly any movies, animation or shows now that don’t utilize visual effects in some way or other. With VFX, it is possible to breathe life into characters that would otherwise remain in our imagination.  

And that is why, the greatest time to start if you want to pursue a profession in this area is right now. For a very long time, a career in animation and VFX wasn’t thought to be very lucrative. The current condition of affairs however, make a career in the visual effects industry seem quite promising. 

Consequently, if you’re one of those talented folks, here are 7 job alternatives for VFX artists to think about: 

 Rotoscoping Artist

Artists who use rotoscoping manually carve out objects and outline movie frames. They add a realistic quality so that crucial components of an image can be captured in the finished output. In the VFX industry, it is now regarded as an entry-level position. If designing and animation are what keep you motivated, this career option will not prove lethal to you and your bank account! 

Layout Artist 

In the VFX field, layout artists take on the role of a virtual camera and control the depth and perspective of a shot. They select the virtual camera “language” for the production and translate animatics and storyboards into polished frames. Make sure you have strong graphic communication abilities and the capacity to comprehend shape, size, and suitable form if you want to become a superb layout artist. 

 FX Technical Director

A technical director for visual effects helps create fluid effects and particles. This entails producing blasts, rain, smoke, clouds, thunder and more. Therefore, give this job option serious consideration if running lighting, sound, and other production equipment is your thing. 

Compositing Artist

Compositing is the combination of multiple layers of video or image components to produce a final still or moving image. For instance, the weather information is displayed behind a weatherman who is positioned in front of a green screen. You need to be an expert in specific digital elements if you want to succeed as a compositing artist. The main components are background images, animations, graphics, and special effects. 

Rigging Worker

If your area of expertise is rigging characters before they are animated, you can become a rigging artist. Technically speaking, rigging comprises creating the 3D character’s skeleton. The 3D object is then moved using this bone structure much like a puppet. You need to have a superb artistic vision and excellent animation interface creation talents to succeed in this field. 

VFX Supervisor

The full VFX project is managed by VFX supervisors. They mainly help with visual effects spectrum oversight. For instance, as a visual effects supervisor, it will be your responsibility to produce amazing VFX scenes and incorporate new aspects. You’ll collaborate closely with the director, writers, producers, and other department leaders to make sure the animation for the movie flows well. 

Matte Painter

Photo-realistic environments and landscapes are crafted by matte painters. However, the primary responsibility is to create realistic components and improve already-present live-action in movies. It’s a fantastic chance for students who have taken painting classes. 

The virtual reality (VFX) market is expanding exponentially. Entering the VFX sector can be a wise choice if you find innovation and creativity fascinating. You can engage in the top VFX certification courses at EDGE Metaversity. We provide a 9-month worldwide certification program that covers both fundamental and advanced concepts in animation and visual effects.
