Many people might have speculated for the entertainment production industry to plummet with the existence of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, despite the struggles presented, technology and, more significantly, research and development had made significant strides in 2020. In this blog post, we look back on the most significant stride that the entertainment production industry has ever seen when it comes to technology.
Camera capturing resolutions
Industry-standard cameras and similar devices are also ahead of consumer-level products when it comes to specs and all the things they can offer. Resolutions such as 4K and even the pioneering 8K are now a regular occurrence on many production committees and projects. Allowing producers to grip these increasing resolutions would enable them to further their vision and broadly project what they genuinely want to convey, all in very high-quality output.
CGI and Green Screen Technology
Chroma key compositing has been around for many forms of entertainment media for a long time. In 2020, green screen usage may not skyrocket, but it was much improved, all thanks to many people’s continuous research and development. If used in the right place and at the right time, both CGI and chroma key compositing can produce very satisfying results. We might be seeing photo-realistic renditions in many forms of media, but this isn’t yet the peak of both technologies, and we believe that it will continue to improve in the next coming years.
Video and photo editing software
Video and photo editing software isn’t usually produced very often, but when they do, the developers make sure that they ship functioning and well-thought-out products. Currently, Adobe Premiere, After Effects, and Photoshop are considered the staples for media production. However, there are still some that are catching up on 2020 thanks to updates and version revisions. Notable products that can be alternative to the Adobe ones include Final Cut Pro X, Davinci Resolve, and Filmora.
