Computer-generated imagery - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1429 words)
CGI is used in movies, television programs and commercials, and in printed media.
CGI is used for visual effects because it is higher quality and more controllable than other more physically based processes, such as constructing miniatures for effects shots or hiring extras for crowd scenes, and because it allows the creation of images that would not be feasible using any other technology.
CGI then took a central role in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), when the T-1000 Terminator villain wowed audiences with liquid metal and morphing effects fully integrated into action sequences throughout the film.
