With the advancements in software and technology, the complexity of computer graphics has significantly improved in recent years. This is easily
seen in the computing gaming and movie industry. The quality of graphics has evolved so much that in some cases it is difficult to distinguish
whether something is real or CGI on a television or movie screen.
CGI stands for Computer Generated Imagery. It is becoming more common in movies and television today. CGI animators are able to create scenes, characters, and special effects that were near impossible less than ten years ago.
Some of the marvels in CGI animation can be seen in such movies as Disney’s Wall-E, Avatar, and Harry Potter. Of course CGI is not confined to film and television. It’s used in advertising, education, and sports. For instance, CGI allows sports commentators to analyse games and illustrate their commentary. One of the biggest and most lucrative fields we see it in however is the computer gaming industry. Computer games have evolved at an incredible pace in the last decade. Animators have stretched the boundaries of human imagination by creating some of the weirdest, most dazzling creatures found in gaming.
