Some topics in computer graphics include user interface design , sprite graphics , vector graphics , 3D modeling , shaders, GPU design , implicit surface visualization with ray tracing, and computer vision, among others. The overall methodology depends heavily on the underlying sciences of geometry , optics , and physics . Computer graphics is responsible for displaying art and image data effectively and meaningfully to the consumer. It is also used for processing image data received from the physical world . Computer graphics development has had a significant impact on many types of media and has revolutionized animation , movies, advertising , video games , and graphic design in general.
