What is CGI?
CGI or Computer Generated Imagery is a computer graphic application. CGI application is used for creating images, videogames, simulators, computer animations, television programs, and different types of videos.
The CGI-based images can be dynamic, static, 2-D, or maybe 3-D. The term CGI is used for 3-D images or Graphics which create special effects, animatic characters, scenes for movies and television programs.
CGI or Computer Generated Imagery progressed to Virtual Cinematography in 1990. Virtual Cinematography is a cinematography working procedure in Computer Graphics. The first movie released through Virtual Cinematography was “What Dreams May Come” in 1998. The advanced Virtual Cinematography modifies, redirects, and enhances scenes.
The Computer Generated Imagery’s software and increased computer speeds have the availability to allow individual artists and small companies to produce professional-grade films, games, and fine art from their home computers.
Static Image and Landscapes:
Landscapes and static images are also a part of Computer Generated Imagery. They also generate fractal landscapes other than only animated images.
The Fractal landscapes can be simply generated through a computer algorithm by using an extension of the triangular mesh method. Many specific techniques have been researched and developed to produce highly focused computer-generated effects.
CGI generated in Anatomical models is not always anatomically correct. Some Scientific Computing and Imaging Institue have developed anatomically correct CGI. These CGI’s can be used both for instructional as well as operational purposes.
X-ray is not considered a CGI even the image is produced digitally. Although, CT scans involving 3-D models of many single slices of X-rays are considered Computer Generated Imagery. The application of Magnetic Resonance Imaging produces pictures of the composite, internal image.
The CGI’s or Computer Generated Imagery of the landscapes feasibly static or uniform so the Computer Animation implements dynamic images which resemble a movie. Computer Animation is the technical successor of stop-motion animation 3-D models and 2-D illustrations.
Computer-generated animations are more controllable than other more physically based processes, such as constructing miniatures for effects shots or hiring extras for crowd scenes, and because it allows the creation of images that would not be feasible using any other technology. It can also allow a single graphic artist to produce such content without the use of actors, expensive set pieces, or props.
