We discuss the findings of ongoing research into forensic animation at the University of Nottingham. There are six sections in this presentation. The introduction part explains the general context about the use of forensic animation for court litigation. The second part describes challenges for the computer animation in the courtroom. The third section deals with procedures used to develop a particular forensic animation case study. It depicts a fatal road accident involving a car and two motorbikes on a dual carriage-way in the UK. The fourth section discusses the development of a new methodology for measuring the reliability and accuracy of forensic animation. The fifth section elucidates analysis on knowledge theory and deductive reasoning. Finally, the conclusion part focuses on demonstrating the extent to which a particular frame of animation carries reliable and accurate information (evidence) which will help a judge and jury to understand complex events.
