IMAGE CoE is supporting start-ups by providing the right connections and mentorship. The photo and video labs will soon be available to cater to start-ups in the animation industry. IMAGE CoE will provide access to MoCap lab infrastructure to the start-ups selected for the IMAGE CoE program for free of cost during the six-month accelerator program. After the six-month accelerator program, the start-ups can still access the lab by paying the approved charges.
Before the invention of computers, the images were hand drawn on transparent celluloid sheets to be photographed and exhibited on film. Thankfully, computer-generated imagery has boosted the animation industry to another level.
