Computer animation can be created with a computer and an animation software. Computer facial animation is a highly complex field where models typically include a very large number of animation variables. Keyframing puts control in the hands of the animator and has roots in hand-drawn traditional animation.

Traditionally, animators manipulate the Avars directly. Timeline of computer animation in film and television Early digital computer animation was developed at Bell Telephone Laboratories in the s by Edward E.

Instead, many powerful workstation computers are used. Objects are sculpted much like real clay or plaster, working from general forms to specific details with various sculpting tools. Even though Nighy doesn't appear in the movie himself, the movie benefited from his performance by recording the nuances of his body language, posture, facial expressions, etc. Serkis had earlier provided the voice and performance for Gollum in J.
