The Art of Using 3D Computer Animation Software

By Tyler Bond

3D computer animation software refers to programs used to make computer generated, three dimensional images. There are many stages that animation studios utilize to make 3D models for games and even in films. If you are just starting to learn 3D animation, having one software package is enough to start learning. Remember that 3D animation is a very complex task, and it is time consuming and indistinctive. Thus, you have to use a book as reference or ask an expert if you want to learn more. Most packages sold come with learning tools. There are also free editions made for studying and gaining personal knowledge.

There are two classifications of 3D packages. One is the non-commercial source or what is called an open-source. Open sources means that the sources can be downloaded for free. One commercial program under the non-commercial source is called Blender. It is a free program for cartooning, modeling, texture quality, and rendering. Blender offers features that are comparable to high-level and middle range 3D animation. Blender also has advanced features. It can export and import different file formats. Blender is the only 3D package that is known for its flexibility. It can scale upwards to be used for complex computer units but it can also be scaled down to be used for handheld computers. It has a unique border that is very difficult to study. It can be made more efficient once you get familiar with it and it also offers a smooth workflow.

Another classification of 3D package is the commercial source. These sources are sold depending on the quality and features of the package. The prices vary from the cheapest to the most expensive packages. One program under the commercial source is the 3D Max, also known as the 3D Studio Max. When it comes to the video game industry, this program is the most popular software available. 3D Max can be used for visualization of architectural designs since it is compatible with AutoCAD. Cinema 4D is another package that is cheaper than the other software because of the simplicity of its configuration. It is known to be an artist-friendly software. It avoids the complex nature of other technical packages. It also has a low cost because of the basic functions of its structure. Additionally, Form-Z is a three dimensional modeler. It is designed mainly for modeling but it can also perform some rendering features. Most of the users of form-Z are architects and interior designers.

There is a lot of software available now, but you should remember that software is only a temporary tool for learning and developing your skills for animation. Once you focus on one software program, you will be limited to that program. To be an effective animator, you should be skillful in designing and drawing. Thus, you should broaden your knowledge and learn about other programs which will be helpful for you.

Architectural Rendering Services: Should You Use 3D Renderings?

By Jon Andrson

If you find yourself running out of time at the end of the day, hiring out for architectural rendering services might be the answer to your productivity problems. If you know that you are not technologically savvy enough to make it worth the time and money to be able to make rendering cost effective, then you are most likely going to benefit greatly from finding someone else to assist you with 3D renderings.

Hiring architectural illustrators to help you in this way is not throwing in the towel and admitting technological defeat; it is simply recognizing your limitations and taking the proper steps to eliminate them. However, if you do choose hire architectural visualization companies, it is extremely important that you do it in the proper fashion.

Architectural Illustrators and Work Samples

When searching for 3D rendering companies, the most important element to search for is samples of work. Yes, even more than experience. Why is this so important? It is quite simple.

Regardless of how many years of experience architectural visualization companies have, if you do not like the look of their work, you will not be satisfied with what they produce for you. And, to be quite honest, if you are not happy with their images, what makes you think that your customers will be happy with them? When you find architectural rendering services that appeal to you, you will find that it is easier to work with that company or individual.

3D Rendering Services and Your Demands

In addition to this, make sure that you find out whether or not the architectural rendering services are willing to work within your demands. If you need a rendering of an office park, but the architectural visualization companies' services only does residential homes, it is not a good fit.

It seems like a no-brainer, but just because you like the way images look doesn't necessarily mean that the architectural rendering service will work with you. Ensure that the architectural visualization company will help you to produce the images that you want to be produced, and not just the images that they feel you need. If possible, see if they will produce a sample piece that is based off of requirements that you provide.

Reputation of Architectural Visualization Companies

Finally, decide upon your architectural illustration services based on the reputation and experience of the producer. Again, this is not the number one requirement because you are going to be searching for the correct fit, not the largest body of work, but it is still an important element. The downside of finding architectural rendering services that have a long list of accomplishments is twofold: one is that they are not as likely to respond to your specific needs and two is that they are likely to be more costly. Now that being said, it is also a benefit in that they have been in the industry for a while and might have ideas that you will not have thought of.

There are a variety of factors that go into finding the right architectural rendering services. Obviously, the best choice is to do the rendering yourself, but if you find that you are having time constraints or technical difficulties, there might be no other choice. If you find yourself in such a situation, take special care to choose the architectural rendering services that will meet your specific needs and demands. 3D architectural rendering services are sometimes a necessary means to an end.

Architectural Visualisation - From Micro To Mega-Structure

By Stuart E Jackson

Architectural visualization - also known as 3D visualisation, CGI, and renderings among other terms - not to mention derivatives using the Anglicised spelling "visualisation" - has long been recognised as the tool of choice for architects and has also propagated into the repertoire of developers who utilise it in their property marketing material to sell clients the aspirational lifestyle of their projects. However, any presumption that visualisation is or can only be used for projects of vast scope and scale should immediately be rejected - this is a discipline which offers value to any project regardless of size.

More often than not, architectural visualisation is perceived as a highly-polished medium, with luxurious renderings depicting beautiful scenes which sell a concept and, in many cases, a lifestyle or ethos as a result by informing the viewer of impact, improvement and traits that influence personal, local and environmental situations and experiences. It is entirely a communicative discipline.

However, whilst the above is undeniably true, its usefulness spreads far beyond slick and glossy visuals - it can be utilised to allay fears or to visually describe innovative solutions which may otherwise be lost in translation. It can also give form to two-dimensional drawings and inform of positive - and in some cases negative - features prior to physical work commencing plus the more traditional illustrations of materials, finishes, fixtures and fittings.

So far we have only discussed architectural visualisation as a medium used to depict polished final renderings for publication and marketing but in truth there are no limits to its application - it can be used to give a schematic illustration of spatial relationships - ideal for conversion projects - and also for remodelling of spaces such as kitchens in order to indicate aspects of change and as a consequence the value gained or, as mentioned previously, areas which may either be contentious or undesirable.

In addition to fundamental physical or material change, the opportunity to use CGIs as a means to allay concerns of intrusion into and upon existing environments is a tool which warrants further explanation such is its usefulness - It should be noted, though, that this process is too broad to discuss in anything other than an overview here but will form the basis of an article at a later date.

Through a process involving the visualiser, a surveyor and a photographer - referred to as either a verifiable view or accurate photomontage - it is possible to combine the three threads into a product which accurately, to a point beyond reasonable doubt, depicts a proposal from a view or views which had previously been a source of concern, thus adding gravitas to the original application and consequently improving the chances of approval; it is therefore an important weapon for the architect to call upon as and when needed.

To sum up, it should be realised that architectural visualisation has usefulness and value at the grass roots of the architectural,planning and design processes through the wide range of applications it can be utilised for and the material it can generate; it is an inclusive medium to be used and experienced by all.

Stephen Gardiner

The loftier the building, the deeper must the foundation be laid.
Thomas Kempis

The Romans were not inventors of the supporting arch, but its extended use in vaults and intersecting barrel shapes and domes is theirs.
Harry Seidler

The work of art shows people new directions and thinks of the future. The house thinks of the present.
Adolf Loos

Those who look for the laws of Nature as a support for their new works collaborate with the creator.
