On-set Facilities

UK-based VFX company On-set Facilities has developed an impressive, and apparently unique system that creates visually stunning live VFX from green-screen shoots.

Based from a workshop in Corwen, the company also uses the facilities at The Optic Centre where OSF are planning to move in later this year

The system uses a VR games Engine, which combines the foreground image, the CG background, the matte and the camera tracking data and feeds it to Nuke where the final composition is output.

The company, which specialises in digitally transforming film sets and has offices in the UK, Spain and Australia, believes it has created the first live VFX setup to combine game Engine technology with live, high-end VFX and digital cameras to output live on-set visual effects.
