3-D Animation Technology
Animators create two and three-dimensional models, animation, and visual effects for television, movies, video games, and other forms of media.
Multimedia artists and animators often work in a specific medium. Some focus on creating animated movies or video games. Others create visual effects for movies and television shows. Creating computer-generated images (known as CGI) may include taking images of an actor’s movements and then animating them into three-dimensional characters. Other animators design scenery or backgrounds for locations.
