• Animation- The term gives an instant thought of cartoons and films
based on computer graphics but prior to this a technique called
Phenakistoscope was there which had simple drawings which
moved simultaneously giving the effect of animation.
• There were several animated features created by using these
drawings which differed from the previous one. This method
disappeared by the end of the twenty first century and drawings
were directly scanned or drawn into computers.
• The computer animation is the rapid display of
a sequence of images of 2-D or 3-D artwork or
model positions in order to create an illusion of
• 3D animations give the impression to look at
characters from all angles like in real life. It can
be grouped under various terms.

for designing homes for their clients.
• This can be used in medical field training for explaining various
concepts, phenomenon and surgical techniques to give a better and
clear vision to the scholars.
• Then in naval field it is used in designing of ships by making a 3D
ship model which helps in quick progress of ship building projects.
In corporate world too it is used for preparing impressive
