  29. Computer Animation in the 1980s An alternative to hand animation Scan images Create in-between frames Ink and paint cels Change celcolors Reduce time Reduce costs

  30. Process for Making Computer Objects: Build virtual wireframes Layer with polygons Fill with color and textures Apply lighting and shading Apply camera viewpoint

  31. Rendering Wikipedia …the process of generating an image from a model (using) computer programs. The model is a description of three-dimensional objects …(that) would contain geometry, viewpoint, texture, lighting, and shading information.
