Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's CGI if there's a computer making imagery that wasn't captured in-camera.

I think motion graphics started out from the graphic design side - i.e. titles and abstract elements - but converged with CGI as abstract elements became more closely integrated with live footage.

CGI can be as much about painting things out as painting them in. There was a (dire) film a few years ago called Twenty Eight Days later - post-plague apocalypse, etc, etc. In one of the scenes there are talking head shots inside a taxi driving along a motorway.

Obviously the director couldn't close the motorway, so CGI was used to remove the other cars that were in the raw footage.
