A nice round up of the top 10 most important innovations in Visual Effects (according to CineFix) this century. Of course the list is never complete nor is it precise, but at least it is a good video to send to outsiders when they ask you that ever repeating question of what it is visual effects artists actually do. See it in the header.

The List
10. Color Grading
9. Fluids Simulations
8. Crowds
7. Motion Capture
6. Universal Capture
5. Green/Bluescreens – Digital Environment Extension
4. Imocap
3. Facial Capture
2. Live CG Rendering
1. Live Lighting Sim

Do you agree with the list or are there any obvious achievements missing from the list?
