Animation is the creation of moving pictures/ images with the help of technology and/ or animation software. VFX refers to the creation of visual effects (VFX) by combining real-life images with animation using special software. For example, the stadiums we see in movies during game scenes are mostly empty. They only 'appear' to be filled with screaming fans, thanks to VFX!
We have examples of Animation & VFX all around us - the Spider-Man & Popeye cartoons we watched as kids, or in our favourite movies like Avatar, Toy Story, Finding Nemo, etc. .
The global Animation industry is growing every year by leaps & bounds. Animation & VFX are now used widely in many areas like MOVIES,TV,ADVERTISEMENTS,MEDICINE, TRAINING & EDUCATION, etc. Many overseas projects get outsourced to India and thus there is a constant demand for skilled professionals in this sector.
