By: Imaginar | Jul 16 2013 | 397 words | 444 hits

Computer animation has turned out to be one of the biggest and most lucrative industries today. Since past few years, the technology of computer animation is getting simpler day by day; at the same time, window of opportunities for talented computer animators is also increasing at a radical pace. Let us have a brief insight at this computer animation.

Technique

Traditionally, in the absence of computer technology, animations were done manually. The most widely used method was making a series of drawings, which were later blended into a film. Another method popularly adopted was by using physical objects or models. Using this method objects or models were placed at a certain place, and images were captured. The objects or models were then moved, and again a set of images were captured, and this process kept on recurring.

Eventually, with the advent of technology, traditional ways were replaced by computer animation. Computer animation or CG animation is the method of creating moving images with the help of computers. Using computers both 2D as well as 3D animation can be created. CG animation is also sometimes referred to as CGI (computer-generated imagery) animation. Images are created on the computer and then are manipulated using various sophisticated CGI software packages. Photorealistic animation involves motion capture, which is a process of recording the movement of people or objects.

CGI Software Packages

Computer animation entirely depends on the use of various CGI software packages. Maya, Cinema 4D, 3ds Max, Softimage, V-Ray, Mental Ray, and Z-Brush are some of the examples of CGI software packages. There are plenty of CGI software package options available, although, prices varies according to the functionality of the program.

Using these high-tech CGI software packages, computer animators can create amazing animations. Although, the key reason of amazing computer generated imagery lies with creative vision of the animators.

These days, computer generated animation has a diverse and extensive use ranging from the field of movies, video games, televisions, advertisements, web designs, and even education and research. Since it has a wide range of application, computer generated imagery has seen a steep upward surge over a past few years or so.

People all over the world, especially the young ones, are simply mesmerized by the hyper-real graphics and sound effects that have been introduced in movies, television programs, as well as in commercial adverts. The use of multimedia aspects makes the presentation more alluring as well as effective.
