At the time of its invention, people predicted that VR would replace many different technolo­ gies like computer screens and tele­ visions and that almost all training for military and vehicle operation would happen in a VR world. The com­ mercial application of VR has never really fully devel­ oped, however.

The R&D team’s challenge was to make a character that had no real shape but that could be animated with a shape when needed. Many studios are now doing their R&D on creating a workflow for stereoscopy (stereoscopic 3D), to work with 3D animated characters in a live-action background plate. A shot is filmed with a stereoscopic camera that stages the composition in a way that enables a 3D character to be placed into it later. R&D teams are always working on the next best thing and are more than likely creating an effect we have not yet seen.
