From independent productions to global tentpole blockbusters, VFX-packed movies have come a long way since CGI displayed practical effects. Modern-day films seamlessly interweave CG effects with live action in ways unimaginable even a decade ago. Productions like “Ready Player One” or “The Lion King” reboot present extremely complex challenges for filmmakers. High production costs and long render times constrain creative vision and impact schedules. Thanks to the ultra-high performance of the NVIDIA Quadro RTX professional graphics boards—powered by innovative VR headsets, like the HTC VIVE Pro Eye—those issues are a thing of the past.
