VFX plates are exported for specialist visual effects work to be completed in another department or out of house. The VFX house will determine whether the 3D VFX plates are delivered corrected or uncorrected, with or without stereo transform maps.

This is also the time to make the final decisions on the length of VFX shots (for instance, whether handles are required), because if more frames are needed on a VFX shot, the plates will need to be redone and exported again.
