Synopsis by Alice Day
Advances in computer graphics have enabled artists to render technically superior depictions of humans, animals, landscapes, and inanimate objects. In this program, the works of some of the top computer artists are shown, as markets for their efforts are found in the corporate world, research, space exploration, education, the military, and entertainment. As the software become more sophisticated, artists find more tools and special effects at their disposal. Many of their extraordinary creations are featured in Computer Graphics Special, along with commentary from leaders in the field.
