    Hey people is it about the cgi or about most of the black actors who are working in the movie that you're expressing this type of hate?

    So this is how they messed up the VFX in the third act. Interesting!

    This video changes the way I see these movie has it is one of my favourite. I did not think this much CGI needed to be in this movie. Of course most movies have CGI and “movie magic” but this movie almost every scene was made out of CGI, I will still love this movie, they just should of died down the CGI a bit, it’s a ‘Live-Action’ movie and an animated movie. Just hope the second one has a little less.

    I'm sure if we all had access to that equipment we would be using cgi. So let's just watch the video and learn something so that we may one day apply these things in are films if that's what some of us are trying to do

    So lemme get this straight. And I'm not just throwin shade here. But a massive corporation made a movie using CGI characters that 80-90% of the time were filmed, edited, directed, and marketed by an almost completely white staff, and it is being called the most important black film in history? Seems to me like the Black community just got fished hook, line, and sinker. Cha Ching! Get that money rich white man! $$$$$

    To all the guys complaining about there being too much CGI in this movie: How would you have done it differently? Wakanda is an extremely technologically advanced society, without actually inventing all of their technology and filming it in use you can't do it without CGI. Stuff like this is hard and Marvel gets it right again and again, which is an awesome achievement.

    Criticizing is not hating. Ask anyone at Method studios and they'll probably agree that this movies isn't the most consistent in terms of CG. It's not that all of it is bad. It's that most of the stuff right in your face is. The reality is that Avengers was releasing two months later and they probably had to focus on that way more.

    They used too much of it when it wasn’t needed, and it looked quite bad. Mostly in the third act, the train scene looked the worst.

  86. Mike Oliver

    Mike Oliver4 months ago

    They keep CGing out suits so eventually they don't need to put people in the costumes or buy the suits or pay for the time of putting actors in the suits. There was no reason to CG Black Panther's suit: it looked great! They got the best people in the industry to make it. I bet you studio notes were "I can't tell who is T'Challa and who is Killmonger" and the solution was to make 'em glow different colors and the VFX team told production that the easiest thing to do to integrate the glow was to completely replace the suits. You know this is the case because if they really had set out to make the suits glow and to replace the suits, then the actors would have been wearing LED strips to cast purple and gold light on the actors and the environment.

    The CGI was actually very decent, it's the virtual camera movements that make things look fake, especially in the mine fight. They should have used proper camera shots instead of having the virtual camera whiz around all over the place.
