Computer animation uses logarithms and templates to create moving images. Computer animators use technology to create animated images for a variety of purposes. Both 2-D animation and 3-D animation is used within this industry. Computer generated imagery (CGI) is widely used to describe moving images and graphics.
Computer animation can be use in artistic design, story development, videogame development, web design, advertising, television, film, and project management. Computer animators are in especially high demand within media professions. Creative people who love art, storytelling, and the technology to make it all happen can find a successful career in this field. Computer animation is also highly competitive, so finding the appropriate degree from a good school is absolutely necessary.
Certificate programs in animation only require a short time investment. They are intended for people who have already earned a degree in a related field. Associate degree programs in computer animation give a more in-depth education then a certificate program. Such programs teach the fundamentals of animation. Students learn techniques in 3-D modeling and animation used in film. Students generally learn other related subjects, such as entertainment law, story development, and communications. Both associate and certificate programs in computer animation art great for people who want to work in web animation.
This website offers school details to prospective students as an informational resource. The appearance of a school listing on this website should not be interpreted as an endorsement by the school of this site.
This website also offers school data. With the exception of the recommend rate percentage (which is the average based on the student reviews submitted to our partner site GradReports), all of the data was collected in 2014-2016 from the National Center for Education Statistics or from an official representative of the school. The NCES is the primary governmental entity for gathering and presenting data related to education. The NCES data is updated annually as soon as it becomes available. The NCES does not release data into downloadable formats until it has been approved, so the most currently available data will not be for the most recent academic year. Salaries and job growth were collected in 2016-2017 from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
