Computer Animation Technique

Computer animation embraces large number of techniques, be it a motion graphics, or the other types of animation techniques. The common thing which relates different animation techniques together is the factor the animation is developed digitally on a computer. Computer animation techniques are very popular and they are used in varied fields- be it education, research, automobiles and so on. You will find comprehensive info about computer animation in this article.

Computer animation is also known as Computer Generated Imagery, CGI animation, which is defined as the art of making images which can move with the help of computers. In other words, it can be said about computer animation that it is a subset of computer graphics and animation techniques. Generally, computer animation is more of three-dimensional computer graphics, although two-dimensional graphics are also used for the purpose of stylistic, low bandwidth, and faster real-time delivering requirements. Another important point of info about computer animation is that computer animation is considered as the digital successor to the techniques of motion graphics such as stop motion animation of 3D models and frame-by-frame animation of 2D illustrations.

Many times, the animation is created to target the computer itself, however sometimes when the target is some other medium, like a film. In that case it is called as computer-generated imagery or computer-generated imaging, particularly in case of the computer animation is to be used in films. Thus, in order to produce a false impression or an illusion of movement, the image is represented on a computer screen and is over and over again replaced by a newer image which is quite similar to the one which preceded it. However it is bit advanced in the time domain which is generally t a rate of 24 or 30 frames/second. This technique is similar to the manner in which illusion of movement is achieved with television and motion pictures.
