Top / Computers / Graphics / Animation

Computer animation refers to the process of creating animations using computer graphics. It is a form of computer generated imagery that focuses on dynamic images. It is practically the advanced and more sophisticated successor of frame-by-frame 2D animation of illustrations and stop motion 3D animation of clay models. Computer animation when used in movies is often known as CGI, an acronym for computer generated imagery.

Many would primarily associate or perceive computer animation as a highly technical and computing-heavy task. It must be mentioned that it is also a form of art that requires skill and an appreciation of aesthetics. Artists who have worked with illustrations or models before will appreciate computer animation being a faster process with more detailed and more realistic-looking output; though new skills would have to be acquired to be able to interface and get used with computing technology.
