INTRODUCTION

Animation generally refers to the process of setting inanimate objects in motion. It is broadly categorize into three forms namely 2D animation, 3D Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) and 3D Motion Capture.

The oldest and most basic form of animation used up to the present is 2D animation. The process of 2D animation is done by combining multiple sets of two-dimensional hand-drawn objects and placing them in a sequence and in a manner that creates an illusion that the drawn objects are in fact moving. With the advancement of computer technology, 2D animation has evolved into more than just handmade drawings.

3D animation in the other hand can be further classified into 3D CGI and 3D motion capture. These forms of animation give a more realistic view of the character because it gives the object the illusion of movement in a three-dimensional perspective. Unlike 2D animation, 3D CGI and 3D motion capture rely more on computer technology rather than the creativity of the artist in drawing an inanimate object.

Animation films in Malaysia still backward compared with other country such as Japan, Korea and US. Today animation films become growing and being large animation company which produces more animation films with high technology. In Malaysia, animation Films Company have to face with high challenge especially in producing the good animation films like Japan, Korea and US. They have so many budgets with good facilities and high technologies to produces the good animation films such as Shrek, Toy Story 3, Mega mind and others.

BACKGROUND OF THE PROBLEM

3D animation films in Malaysia which is featured the cartoons are still backward to compared with other country such as Japan, Korea and US. As we all know, the technology is a main role in creating the good quality of 3D animation films. Without technology, there is nothing we can do in creating a good 3D animation films. Animators in Malaysia really need the high and good technology to make their story creation become reality. If the animator had the best talent in creating the story for films but there is no technology or medium to help them, then there is nothing and just a waste. We can see here that technology have the importance role among the animators in Malaysia in creating good 3D animation films. So, this research is conducted to know what are the importance of technology in the production of 3D animation films among the animators in Malaysia.

PROBLEM STATEMENT QUESTION

1) Is the problem of current interest?
We know that 3D animation films in Malaysia still backward other than country such as Korea, Japan and US. The animators need to know the importance of using high technology in their works so they can produce more high quality of animation films.

2) Is the problem likely to continue into the future?
If we didn't take any action, this problem will continue into the future. The animator need to understand and know the importance in using technology in producing their films. So that, we can compete with other country in animation sector.

3) How large is the population affected by the problem?
This problem affected all people in animation sector especially the animator and the producer itself.

4) How important, influential, or popular is this population? The animator plays main role in this situation whereby they are the player in this sector and they determine how the story line of...
