VFX Error - Shot Number 


"VFX Shot Number" refers to text identification overlaid into the final image. This code can also be used for any kind of overlaid reference text, such as file names, shot numbers, or timecode burn ins."


VFX Shot Number impacts the Technical and Content Quality of the asset. Customer experience will be negatively affected as plot-pertinent information may be covered by unintended on-screen elements. This is rarely creative intent. Any video created from this asset will contain VFX Shot Number.

Severity Structure:




Visible overlay is present on a shot.

How to Prevent:                          

Review all VFX shots for overlay when inserting. Keep fully finished shots separate from those with overlays in order to avoid grabbing the wrong version.  


Fully finished shot without overlay must be inserted where this occurs.
