When someone pays way too much attention looking at a visual effects shot in a film. Often happens when examining the grain of a composite element to make sure it matches the film stock.

When someone pays way too much attention looking at a visual effects shot in a film. Often happens when examining the grain of a composite element to make sure it matches the film stock. Someone who pixel-fucks pays more attention to things like grain than the overall effectiveness of the shot. This is often because they are small-minded bean-counters, and miss the point of a shot entirely.

Closely related to 'frame-fucking'. See also 'pixel-fucking microscope'.

Combination of, pixel (short for picture element, using the common abbreviation "pix" or "px")a single point in a graphic image, and fucking.

The meaning is applied to when someone is meticulous about the tiniest changes, (i.e one pixel left, one pixel right)in a design of some kind.
My boss is a pixelfucking, pixelfucker, but that's what makes him good at what he does.....
