Take it from someone who deals with it all the time, we almost never use
the term cgi, it's always cg. "The effects were too cg", "I do cg effects
for movies", "You want it cg or practical?", "He wants cg explosions on top
of that element", etc. I usually see cgi used in articles and such. I
can't remember if it means computer graphics imagery or computer generated
imagery or what.

 accident in the hospital, the comedy of Robin Williams convinced him to
 go on living.  However, the comedy of Pauly Shore made him long for the
 sweet release of death."				- Norm MacDonald
