“An image is worth a thousand words” is a well-known saying. It reflects the truth because the human eye–brain system is a high-capacity, sophisticated data processor. We can “digest” a huge amount of information if we receive it visually, as an image, rather than as a list of numbers. This is the reason for the success of computer graphics. However, if one image conveys a lot of information, many images are even more informative. This is why computer animation is so popular. It can bring to life impossible or non-existent objects and can teach and entertain.
