Colin recently gave a small comment on how the effects in AvP2 were done:

“Special Effects are done on set. Visual Effects are done after the shoot. We started some of the bigger shots early on in the editting, but most of the shots aren’t started until the edit is mostly locked in so that you aren’t wasting money on shots that won’t make it into the film.”

You can read the entire thread on the IMDB boards.

Why are you ragging the guy for talking about the process? You obviously don't have any prior knowlegde. If you did, you'd know this is nothing new   ::)

Apparently, the Strauses never heard of 'Director's Cut'.... and rest assured Fox will edit this version to extort more money from the ones still resilient to buy AVP2 Theatrical version... About the FX, who cares about that babble...?

RIJOENPIAL, do you even have any idea what you're talking about?  The theatrical cut is always the studio's version, since they payed for it. Any Director's Cut would be for dvd-release

The director's have already done their Director's Cut. Now they're editing it down to the Theatrical Cut.

Katarn, what do YOU think I am talking about?  Apparently, the Strauses don't get that any additional scenes to a theatrical version need to be shot in advance, therefore, any scenes with VFX that don't make the theatrical but could well be in the DC, must be filmed altogether...  Again, if you don't understand anything, all you need is ask...
