In what surely will come as no surprise to anyone who has seen a big-budget film out of Hollywood lately, digital effects are transforming the way movies are made and giving filmmakers new opportunities to show things on screen they could only dream about a few years ago. Over at the New York Times, they have a pretty good article that explains how digital effects are used by filmmakers to enhance several recent films, including Director Tony Bill's WWI story Flyboys.

Digital effects have been around for quite awhile and really came into the spotlight when a computer generated stained-glass knight dropped from the window of a church and started trying to kill people in Young Sherlock Holmes. This film has the distinction of being one of the first, if not the first, to use CG effects in such a way.
