There’s no way anyone would do lightsabers or blaster fire manually anymore.
I beg to differ 😉
Doing it by hand is still the best way, not the fastest mind you 😛
Umm, I’m pretty sure those were done on a PC…
MAC actually, but still manually.
Then it’s CGI.
What, you think because it’s “CGI”, a person just pushes a button and it’s done? LOL
It’s basically the same as doing it with opticals. Just different tools. So yes, people still do it “manually”.
LOL. Manually means by hand (manus), CGI means it’s done on a computer (C=computer).
I don’t think anyone here has said CGI just magically appears to movies. Not sure why your posts are in this thread.
