The 3D animation software refers to computer-generated imagery (CGI) application that is used for visualizing, developing and modifying static and dynamic 3D images and animations. The software integrates video footage and artificial images to create realistic objects and scenes through various technologies, such as visual effects (VFX), 3D modeling, motion graphics and 3D rendering. The software consists of customizable characters, libraries of animations, automatic lip-syncing and pre-defined sets. It is widely used for developing creative effects in brand advertisements and product promotions, visualization of scientific, product and system information, and visual analytics. It finds extensive applications across various industries, including media & entertainment, architecture, healthcare and life sciences.
