In the process of producing 3D renderings, especially for aerial projects, the treatment of background, or surrounding buildings is part of clients’ major concerns. The requirement for context buildings vary based on their expectations, and what is the main part to be displayed. In this article, four methods to handle context buildings will be introduced, so whoever reads this could get to know more about architectural visualization.
I Google Map
For projects that have a specific location coordinate, they can be easily navigated through Google Maps. By using Google Maps, we can either accurately model the context buildings exactly according to it, or produce a rough presentation in the same way. These are two options while using Google Map solution.
II Photo Composition
If clients expect the background or surrounding buildings to be as close to what is shown in the real scene, they can be realized through photo composition basing on real photos taken by the correct angle, or other references capable of Photoshop processing.
III Reference Selection from the Library
If clients don’t have specific requirements on the context buildings to be added, but still want to enrich the surroundings, they can select some of the existing models from our library. Professional artists will also help to select the most suitable items to match the context and the design ideas.
IV White Block
It happens when we merely want the main buildings or major designs to be the focus that a white block or rough model will be used to blend into the view. It is also an excellent way to showcase the main designs other than spending more time and effort to render the background or surroundings, which is frequently applied in aerial and semi-aerial renderings. This is the simplest way of dealing with context buildings.
In conclusion, how to handle context buildings is illustrated in the above four methods, but most importantly, is subject to clients’ decisions and expectations.
