Arthur "Art" J. Codron (born 3 May 1963; age 59) is a visual effects (VFX) artist who, starting in the summer of 1993, first worked on the last season of Star Trek: The Next Generation as a VFX assistant editor, before moving on to work, promoted to junior position of VFX associate, on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (albeit only for that series' finale, "What You Leave Behind", which however, did earn him his third Emmy Award nomination), Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Enterprise. During the early run of Voyager's second season, Codron was promoted to the senior position of VFX supervisor. Two characters in the Star Trek universe were named for him, Art Codron in the episode "Projections" and A. Codron in Star Trek: Enterprise. His work on Star Trek has earned him eight visual effects Emmy Award nominations, three of which he won.

In addition, he worked as pre-production dialogue editor on the animated television series X-Men (1992-1993) and as assistant VFX editor on the drama Grand Canyon (1991, with Hoyt Yeatman).

After Enterprise concluded in 2005, Codron moved over to ABC Television to work as VFX supervisor on the television drama N.Y.-70 (2005) and the television series Dirt (2007) and Ghost Whisperer (2006-2010), for which he received a Visual Effects Society Award nomination in the category Outstanding Visual Effects in a Broadcast Series and an Emmy Award nomination in the category Outstanding Special Visual Effects for a Series in 2009, which he shared with Armen V. Kevorkian and David R. Morton, and as VFX editor on the television series Surface (2005-2006).
