It’s ‘compositing’, not ‘composting’

After many years of correcting people (and one can only guess at how many web-searches have gone awry!) I’ve decided to embrace the typical misinterpretation of the title of my book and appropriate the term as a catch-all for any non-vfx-related posts. A definition then:

Digital Composting: The decomposition of organic thoughts into a digital residue that, much like traditional compost (or manure, for that matter), may contain some trace nutrients… or may just smell bad.

I’ll happily take suggestions on a more elegant definition :-)

At any rate, welcome to Digital Composting.

  1. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in
    it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive
    the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is wonderful blog.
    A great read. I will definitely be back.
