Transcript of Copy of Impact of Computer Animation on Society

Computer Animation

by Abby Kaminski
and Neil Shastri According to sciencedaily.com, Computer Animation aka Computer
Generated Imagery (CGI),

"is the art of creating moving via the use of computer images."

CGI creates the illusion of movement, in which an image is displayed on the computer screen then quickly replaced by a new image that is similar to the previous image, but shifted slightly.
In the past few decades, CGI has been used effectively to help communicate ideas and present information in an interesting and creative manner.
Introduction Foundation dates back to Ancient Egyptian time period in which artists would create a story like a comic strip showing each movement.
Invention of Kinetoscope in 1888 uses motion capture to present the images rapidly on a reel to show movement.
1910-1940s; cartoon characters and television series popularized
-e.g. Steamboat Willie, Mickey Mouse and friends, Tom and Jerry, The Flinstones, etc.
1970’s-present day; CGI is used in films to create special effects
-e.g. Star Wars (1977), Tron (1982), Toy Story (1995), Avatar (2009), etc.
Other forms of Computer Animation:
-Claymation (Wallace and Grommit)
-Cut-out Animation (South Park)
-Model Animation (King Kong)
History Entertainment: Movies, TV shows, music videos, etc.
Medical: Procedural presentations
Education: Enhances and makes learning experience fun and sometimes realistic
Practical: Can be utilized to simulate a creative, building, or informational process (e.g. construction, automobile design, safety videos, etc.)

-Movies (Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks, ILM, etc.)
-Television (Nickelodeon, Toon Disney, Adult Swim, etc.)
-Music Videos

Provides a clear, realistic presentation of…
-Medical procedures
-Negative symptoms of a diagnosis

-an animation can show more than a textbook

-Students can learn in an interesting and fun manner
Educational Use CGI can be used to…
-show the layout or rendering of a new building
-create and display a safety evacuation video for a plane
-create 3D models for automobiles, planes, furniture, technical devices, etc.
Practical Use Without computer animation…
-the entertainment industry would not be as advanced as it is now.
-students would not be provided with educational tools that go beyond a textbook.
-our environment would not be designed and engineered to be as safe as it is now.
