      CGI, also called the computer-generated image is one of the most astounding developments in the rapidly evolving field of digital technology. CGI is the application of the field of computer graphics (or more specifically, 3D computer graphics) to special effects. CGI is used in films, television programs and commercials, and in printed media.
