This period of advancement bled-over into the 2000’s with the rise of consumer and prosumer software programs, which were becoming more and more intuitive, while still remaining cost effective for smaller productions. The science fiction genre changed rapidly throughout the 2000’s, as a result of new technologies and techniques being developed regarding the use of visual effects. In this paper, I am going to inform you about some of the history behind the visual effects industry and its technological developments. As well as, how these improvements in visual effects technology (like motion capture, digital compositing and prosumer software programs) changed the way that the television industry approached filming productions in the mid to late 2000’s.

So, this goes with how we assume sunlight should cast shadows on the Earth, and how we can distinctly detect when a shadow is off,…

A technique called Dynamation that was later developed, and refined by Ray Harryhausen. According to the official rayharryhausen.com website, the idea behind the technique started as early as 1938/39.

    Even so, the general trend across the data presented is that dinosaurs were either endotherms or ectotherms with alterations from what we see today, or had their own method of thermoregulation which lies somewhere between the two. Since it’s difficult to obtain samples of dinosaurs, whether it be from bone isotope compositing, ranges of growth/age of different species or bone structure, therefore it’s difficult to extrapolate data which may contradict with another researcher’s work.
