This is a dictionary of 3DCG terms, companies, important people, and staff titles, which also provides some history background.
I have selected books concerning the history, industry, and techniques of 3DCG in general. In relation to CG animation, I chose books related to the world-renowned group Pixar and the necessary books for understanding Japanese CG animation.
