2 ‘Reality’ effects in computer animation of underlying physical properties and processes. This is impossible because of the extreme mathematical complexity. For instance, to fully simulate the shape of a tree would involve mathematically ‘growing’ every leaf, every brunch, every piece of bark; and to fully simulate the colour of a tree’s surface a programmer has to consider every other object in the scene, from grass to clouds to other trees. In practice, computer graphics researchers have resorted to solving particular local cases, developing a number of unrelated techniques for simulation of some kinds of shapes, materials and movements.

31 These privileged signs of realism overcompensate for the inability of computer graphics researchers to simulate fully such ‘real scenes’. 2 ‘Reality’ effects in computer animation Conclusion In the twentieth century, new technologies of representation and simulation replace one another in rapid succession, therefore creating a perpetual lag between our experience of their effects and our understanding of this experience. A reality effect of a moving image is a case in point. As film scholars were producing increasingly detailed studies of cinematic realism, film itself was already being undermined by three-dimensional computer animation.
