Ivan Sutherland 1970s -The University of Utah. -CGI, rendering of curved surfaces, texture mapping. 1980s - Empire Strikes Back (Star Wars). -ILM: What is it not? Why is it better that regular filming ? What is it? CGI When was it first used ? What does it stand for? Computer Generated Imagery NOT Stop Motion Shooted Scenes Creation of your own world 1973 1982 More controllable for effects shots No Physics How much does it cost ? Cheap What difficulties face it ?

Most modern day productions of hand-drawn animation scan the artists’ drawings into computers, where they are colored and then composited together with the other elements in the scene. Each puppet has an armature – a kind of metal skeleton which helps the puppet to keep its shape and the joints to both move easily and hold a position. Puppet animation used to be pretty common, especially on television. But when computer animation arrived on the scene and provided a way to get a similar dimensional look without some of the drawbacks of puppet animation, puppet animation wasn’t used as much. The technique is pretty much the same as puppet animation except that the figures are made of clay or a substance similar to clay. Computer Animation Colored PIXELS In the Right Order Solid Surfaces Lines Computer Animation Thanks for your time “computer generated imagery” animation, is a relatively new technique It’s sort of a digital version of puppet animation. Instead of existing in the real world, all of the characters, sets, and props are built inside of the computer by combining and manipulating simple polygons. Computer animation is very popular right now and can be seen all over the place. Flash Animation is another one of the newer ways to animate and another technique that utilizes the computer. flash animation is animation created using Adobe Flash or a similar animation program. Flash allows animators to break down characters and other elements into numerous pieces. The face of a character animated in Flash may consist of the head, two separate eyes, a mouth, and maybe even separate hair. Cutout animation, also called cut-paper animation, is a technique in which the characters, props, and backgrounds are flat cutouts. By moving the cutouts a little at a time and shooting frames of film for each small movement, animation is created. Computer programs like Flash have allowed animators to simulate the look of cutout animation while enjoying the benefits of animating on a computer References http://www.ehow.com/facts_5834100_2d-animation-vs_-3d-animation.html
http://inkandpixelclub.com/2009/11/animation-techniques-ink-pixels-and-everything-in-between/ Involves the animator painting a scene on a piece of glass, shooting a frame of film, and then reworking the image slightly. Oil paints are most commonly used since they dry very slowly It can be very beautiful, giving the look of a painting come to life like no other animation technique can. Another less common technique, sand animation is created by the animator making images with sand. it is not really animation, since there is no illusion of movement created. The artist uses the sand to create images which are projected onto a large screen for the live audience.
