Note: Unusual elements of a motion picture created using a variety of techniques such as computer, mechanical, makeup, pyrotechnic, optical, lighting, camera speed, weather effects, and model techniques. Generally they are used to create effects that normal camera techniques or set action cannot provide or would be too costly to shoot normally. They are often inserted into the motion picture by the special effects department after live shooting.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Ongewone filmelementen die tot stand worden gebracht met behulp van diverse technieken, bijvoorbeeld computer-, mechanische, grime-, pyrotechnische, optische, licht-, draaisnelheids-, weers- en modelleertechnieken. Ze worden doorgaans gebruikt om effecten te creëren die met normale cameratechnieken of acteerhandelingen niet bereikt kunnen worden of daarvoor te kostbaar zouden zijn. Ze worden vaak in de setbeelden gemonteerd door een aparte speciale-effectenafdeling. 
Spanish ..... Los elementos inusuales de una película crearon una variedad de técnicas como las realizadas por computadora, mecánicas, maquillajes, ópticas, velocidad de la cámara fotográfica, efectos del tiempo, y las técnicas del modelo.
