Physical Effects

Physical effects is a sub-category of special effects in which mechanical or physical effects are recorded. Physical effects are usually planned in preproduction and created in production.

Physical effects may be divided into at least four categories:

  • Explosions
  • Special mechanical rigs
  • Support systems: wires supporting actors
  • Stunts

Special effects also cover another sub-category of visual effects.
