noun

  • Sound or visual effects used in film, TV, or music: films which require actors rather than special FX
    More example sentences
    • For a director that's been in special FX since 1993, it's unforgivable how bad some of the CGI is, especially in moments where it was completely unnecessary.
    • Despite some excellent FX work, the sequence is nowhere near as exciting as it promises to be.
    • An alternate ending is present which doesn't really change very much (and features a lot of incomplete FX work) whilst the deleted scenes are no more monotonous than anything in the actual film.

Origin
