Computer graphics and acting skill

With the tremendous progress on computer graphics recently, movies now have many more possibilities. Some people think that this kills actors' acting skill. IMHO, I cannot agree. We must take one step back and rethink what the core value of "acting skill" is. The fundamental value of "acting skill" is "realistic". Therefore, if computer graphics can be realistic, it deserve the same credit. In other words, if computer graphics replace some of the acting skill, then the appreciation from us the audience is now transferred onto the computer graphics.
