True. In fact, the best special effects are the ones you don't notice as special effects.
Not necessarily. In my opinion there's just as much to be said for FX that flawlessly create something that couldn't possibly exist in reality. In this case there's the burden of having viewers look at something very critically, fully aware that it has to be an FX shot. Achieving a completely believable effect under that close scrutiny is just as much a great achievement as flawless FX shots the viewer is unaware of (usually because they're FX shots to extend or replicate something that could exist in reality, but which would cost more to shoot entirely practically).
