The increasing use of digital workflows to produce feature films has made possible ever more spectacular and seamless special effects.  The movie experience for audiences today is very different from that of just a few years ago.  From Harry Potter to Alice in Wonderland to Avatar, filmmakers have new creative freedoms that produce amazing results for today’s moviegoers.  The industry has also benefited from the many efficiency gains associated with digital post. 

Right now it’s still a hybrid world with filmed or digitally-originated images feeding into a digital intermediate process which is then recorded out to produce film prints or a file for digital cinema display.  Recording out to produce film prints usually  requires an intermediate film.  From the infancy of the digital intermediate process, Kodak Vision Color Intermediate Film has been the standard used to record out images from those digital files for film distribution and display.
