3-D Animation

3-D animation resembles the hand-drawn animations of an earlier era only in basic ways. 3-D animation involves a new way of thinking (in three-dimensional space) and a new way of working—with objects, lights, and cameras, rather than with hand-drawn flat images. But the principles of animation still apply.

Note

Animations created in 3-D can be super-realistic or super-synthetic-looking. To date, they have only rarely achieved the kind of organic beauty associated with hand-drawn art, but the art form and the artists are rapidly evolving.
