It makes it possible even when both camera and the object itself are moving. Among the reasons why this has been extremely challenging in motion-picture industry and technology is the fact that, as camera moves, the angle to which the viewer sees CGI object changes as well. Rather than having VFX artists to alter and modify appearances of CGI object at one frame at 24x/second, Arraiy AI software do this automatically.
