Computer animation involves creating moving images with the help of computers. This type of animation is used in films, television shows, video games, and advertisements.
Most modern computer animation that you see today is 3D computer animation. Unlike 2D animation, which looks flat and cartoonish, 3D animation has more depth and it is a little more realistic. To create this type of animation, a computer animator must first create a virtual model using special modeling software.
Computer animation can be used to create short animated scenes, and it can be used to create full-length movies. Some movies have even combined real life actors and scenes with computer animation in order to create stellar special effects.
