Architectural Visualization is the process of creating still images with realistic features and impressions. 3D rendering is the first choice for developers, architects, and others when it comes to realizing their design ideas. And at INFIN visual, we are concentrating on 3D rendering services. To better streamline the whole process, an answer has to call up: what are fundamental for a successful rendering? This article will make a brief introduction for you.
To those who may not know, 3D rendering production includes three parts: modeling, render & post-work, and final delivery.
I Information for Modeling
Information that clients provide vary from one another, but generally, there are two types: one with existing 3D models, one without.
For clients who can provide 3D models, they can save lots of time and cost. The acceptable file formats for 3D models include.MAX, .3DS, DAE, RVT, .3DM. If clients cannot provide any 3D models, they should at least provide CAD files that include elevations, floor plans, and angles for the project. Sketch-up drawings by hands are also fine, which will genera extra modeling charge, with a clear framework and geometrical details. If the model needs to be exactly as same as in the reality, which means precise modeling, real photos or Google Maps Link must be provided to proceed. Moreover, for exterior renderings with an aerial view that grasps the entire view of the city or building complex, a site plan is needed. It will tell the function of each area, layout, and traffic line.
II Context Setting
The context in renderings is very important as it indicates mood, location, and general impressions. To accurately reach the real presentation, topography information for buildings, Site Location Photo, Google Map Link are required to set the background as well as the landscaping.
In this category, lighting must be attenuated since it is key to general impressions. If the image is hoped to achieve delight and joy, then crisp and warm lighting should be applied. If clients do not have an idea for that, 3D artists will help them by referring to the landscaping and design concepts of the project.
This part refers to all materials of the building, surface, and landscape. In interior renderings, we also need a material reference to the furniture, fixtures, and equipment. Below shows the material board provided by clients, which is convenient and direct to comprehend.
IV Mutual Trust and Communication
Apart from technical issues, every party involved in the rendering process, architects, developers, house owners, clients, or the technical team, should build trust in one another and communicate with a willing spirit. In INFIN visual, we value effective communication and prompt feedback of drafts work on each stage because these will help us produce high-quality and satisfactory images for the clients with ease. This fundamental idea is prior to the beginning of every project that’s developing.
Above is a brief illustration of what is fundamental for successful rendering. Hopefully, it helps to resolve some of your confusion so far.
