ComputerAnimation

Rachely's insight:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As you see, my favorite topic is "Computer Animation".

I chose this topic because on the one hand I'm really interested in computer Science.  I learn in the university this area to get a degree in computer Science.

On the other hand, I like drawing, painting, designing and all other things connected with art.

Combine them together and you get "Computer Animation" which is composed of creativity and imagination, in order to generate a real living drawing with high technology that causes it to become that way.

I chose for my topic's profile picture a picture of a character from the famous "Avatar" movie. I think this movie represents the use of animation and art technology in a very high level.

There were so much efforts and time and resources invested in this movie to gain this magnificent creation of a new wonderful world.

In this movie they take action of real actors and surround it with a beautiful animated environment. They reached presenting visual images and tangibility with these tools, in a way that the animation playing with the real characters can't be differed.

 There are scenes where real living character is acting along  with an imaginative one . The animators made so good work that you can't tell the difference, you can't notice which are the real things and which are not.

My assumption is that with this fast technology development days will come and the use of real living characters will be no longer needed.

The entertainment industry in the producing video and movies zone won't need actors any more.

The creation of animating characters and their motions will be so real to the viewer eye, so he can't tell that they aren't really real!

It's all about really good computing animation work.

We can see this already in advertisements showing pretty "people" that they almost not even close to the real models. Pictures goes a "photoshop process" all the time that it's deceiving the client and showing him a completely perfect picture as it is just when computer-animation's work touches it.

So this topic is very relevant and interesting especially in this "photoshop – computer animation - generation".

The three dimensions of our real world are applied with computers, and the illusion created seems so real!

We can also see that researchers use this technology to get a more real image to investigate on.

For examples: Imaging of the human body, Simulation of galaxies and the universe spaces , computing Molecular modeling  and in Chemistry-labs' experiments. And there are lot of diverse uses in labs and research institutions.

I wish this technology to be used for not just the entertainment's and cinema's areas, but more for important sciences like Physics, Medical Science, Biology, Chemistry, Geography and so on.  So it will help to develop in a more quick, efficient and accurate process, cure and security to the humanity itself.

Rachely's insight:

Today's children aren't like they were in our grand parents' and even parents' generations. With the whole fast technology development, our daily hobbies are changing. When my mom back then used to play Five Stones for hours! today's kids are enjoying playing angry-birds, temple run, candy crash and whatsoever.. they're surfing the net like they're walking in the street!

So, my point is, in this longest introduction ever ;) is to show you a great way for the children to develop in what they do anyway!

This animation software is a huge idea for developing creativity and imagination in the little ones, and even in adults.

When back then books were doing it, today you can create the book on your own, in front of you, alive, with all of its colors and beauty!

I found it really worth it! 

That's more than just another application, that's also educational and so much fun! :)
