Computer animation is the process used for generating animated images with computers. It is also referred to as CGI (Computer-generated imagery or computer-generated imaging).
If you understand the basic film
processes (editing, sound, continuity) you could make an animated film
either by making one drawing after another, moving an object frame by
frame in front of the camera, or using some animation software. However, when it comes to big project what most
distinguishes projects with a strong need for computer animation from projects without such a strong need is the size of the budget, because people that know the animation industry and work well should be additional included in the project and paid.
