+anything that you can think of !!!
produces realistic enough movement!
i.e. perceivable due to way the eye and brain process images
e.g. Human-Body Movement
A Bouncing Ball
A Horse Galloping
Analogue Computer Animation
Sophisticated mathematics and/or constructive solid geometry are used
is used, usually, to create the animation
ReBoot (the 1st one!)
Toy Story 1 & 2
Shrek 1 & 2
Father of the BrideSome examples (of CGI short films)
and many-many more!

What is expected : The current level of animation (2D, 3D) to be replaced with Virtual Reality

Photorealistic human characters
Undergoing physically-correct motion (with clothes, hair, interaction with other human characters
No difference from real actors
No difference from the real world
The possibilities are endless!!!
