Benefits of Using 3D Architectural Rendering For Building Project

By Prahlad Parmar

What is the importance of 3D architectural rendering? Modern architectural animation techniques facilitate a 3D (three dimensional) view of any object. 3D views or renderings help in visualizing how the final product or object will look like. 3D object views are always exciting than any other 2D views.

3D architectural renderings provide you a great opportunity to play with your ideas or imaginations. You can construct more realistic impressions of your building design and discover how a house or building project will emerge out in future. With invent of 3D architectural renderings you are now able to view particular construction points of your project more clearly from various angles and aspects, which is not possible with 2D rendering services.

Advantages for 3D Architectural rendering services:

-> Complete project visualization before project commences
-> Gives better understanding for your project in 3D
-> Error minimization in project due to effective designs
-> Increases productivity and project life cycle
-> High quality Sales presentations using print/web/multimedia medium
-> Better control over project and its progress

Professional 3D rendering service includes house plans, floor plans and interior/exterior architectural illustrations. 3D rendering techniques can add artificial lightings, textures, colors and other effects to your buildings or landscapes. Also, architectural animations help you to choose life-like colors for your building interiors and exteriors.

If you are a property developer, architect or real estate company, 3D architectural rendering services can prove to be extremely helpful in explaining your projects effectively to potential buyers. Sometimes your company may need architectural renderings to get necessary approvals or a building permit or simply to communicate your idea to the project stakeholders. With 3D rendering techniques you get wide variety of 3d animations, architectural walkthroughs, virtual tours and fly-arounds that leave no detail unaccounted for!

Design 3D Animations - What Will I Need?

By Justin L Sternad

As a hobby or as a career, 3D animation has had some exciting advancements over the years. As a result of advancements, this field has yielded some pretty amazing computer software titles. Animation has come a long way from rudimentary Thaumatropes to more complex 3D animation films by studios across the globe.

A computer is one piece of equipment needed to design 3D animations. The equipment you purchase or currently own should be capable of handling the software package that you intend to use for the animating process. Also, know your computer's limitations and upgrade-ability as this will affect which system you purchase. You may need to add more memory or buy additional storage hardware. Complex renderings require a large amount of memory and space. You will be doing a lot of modeling and rendering so be prepared by having enough memory and storage space available to you.

A feature rich software package is the second item you will need to design 3D animations. One of the fastest growing areas within the field of computer animation is software. As the technology behind computer hardware simplifies, animation software is constantly improved to keep up with projects which in turn are becoming more complex. For the animator, this means that there is a vast variety of software to choose from. Just as in the case of the computer hardware, the animator should become familiar with the limitations and features of the prospective software package he or she intends to purchase. The following list is some of the more popular software titles currently available for 3D animation:

3D Studio Max - This full-featured 3D modeling, animation, rendering and effects package has everything needed to create high-quality content.

Maya - This software package is immensely popular amongst animator's for its 3D modeling, animation, rendering and effects.

Modo 302 - This software package features advanced polygon, subdivision surface, modeling, sculpting, 3D painting, animation and rendering. It has proven itself to the.

E-on's Vue 7 xStream - This software package offers a complete tool set for creating rich and realistic natural environments and integrating them into any professional production pipeline, including 3D Studio Max and Maya.

Blender - Students, hobbyists and professionals can take advantage of this software package for modeling, rigging, animation, rendering, UV unwrapping, shading, physics and particles, imaging and compositing, and real-time 3D/game creation.

The technologies employed to design 3D animation are but tools used to simplify the animation process. Without a skilled artist in the studio, nothing would be designed. Artists need proven, reliable technology in order to design the awesome 3D animations of tomorrow.

Digital Art Tools For Beginners

By Dawid Michalczyk

Every now and then I'm asked what art tools I can recommend.
I certainly understand how anybody new to the field might have trouble finding the right tools.
These days there is a lot of art software out there. From tiny tools that will only render you a logo, to
large, multi-purpose, expensive and complex programs that can do almost anything.

They all look great on the outset and have plenty of cool features. But which tool is right for you?
How much and what functionality do you need? How much are you willing to pay for it?
This article will help you find answers to such questions, and hopefully save a lot of time and hassle.

Art tools

Generally there are two types of art tools: 2D and 3D. 2D tools let
you paint or draw on a flat surface just like painting or drawing on a piece of paper or
canvas. 3D tools are different. Here you create in three dimensions. The best way to understand
how this works is to simply try it yourself. Download a demo of any 3D tool along with a basic tutorial, and

For a beginner, it's better to start with an inexpensive, popular tool that will teach solid
fundamentals of the digital art creation process.
Popular tools have larger user base, introduction books, many free tutorials and forums to turn for help.
Therefore I decided to concentrate on the more common tools that cost less than 1000 USD.
These are quality tools that will provide you with plenty of creative power.

The software I suggest here are mature tools that
I either use(d) myself or know they are solid through their reputation. Generally they all
do the same thing - help you create images. The main difference between them is how they work and
how much they cost. I won't cover vector-based tools as I have no experience in that domain.

2D painting tools

There is no point in writing much here except that sooner or later you will need
one of those. If only to do minor fixes to your 3D renders. Starting with Gimp might
be a good idea since it's free and is available for Linux, Mac OS, and Windows.
Photoshop and Painter are probably the most popular 2D tools among digital artists.

GIMP - many effects and filters; free; working in hi-resolution can be slow.
Painter - targeted at digital painters; famous for its rich set of natural brushes; can be slow when working in hi-resolution.
Photoshop - the most popular photo editing software on the planet; fast; many free and commercial plugins available.

All-round 3D tools

You should get one if you are serious about learning 3D art. An all-round 3D tool will teach you
how to create and think in 3D. Any of these will let you do almost anything:
characters, architecture, landscapes, objects, special effects, etc.

Blender - available for many operating systems; free; documentation can be lacking in some areas; somewhat unusual interface.
CINEMA 4D - somewhat easier to use; not nearly as feature rich as the others; flexible interface.
Lightwave 3D - a rather unusual interface (no icons, only text buttons); famous for its high rendering quality; used in production of many Hollywood movies.
SOFTIMAGE - XSI Foundation - the low-end version of Softimage; widely used in the film, gaming and advertising industries; a limited and watermarked version available for free.

These are powerful tools that take time to learn. Master one of them
and you probably won't need to learn another one.

Special purpose 3D tools

There are many 3D tools which specialize in particular domain, like
character or landscape creation. Because they are highly optimized for doing one thing, the
end result can be better, or at least easier and quicker done, compared to an all-round tool.

They are typically
much easier to use and get started with. Frequently providing the user with pre-fabricated ready to use assets
that can be easily manipulated. This allows for a very rapid development process and saves plenty of time and

There is a flip side to this however. The high specialization factor makes such images often have the same overall
look and feel. The wide use of pre-fabricated assets further eliminates originality. The ease of use makes
such tools accessible to anybody - artist or not. As a result many online galleries
are literally flooded with endless, similarly looking, unoriginal images that get quickly
boring to look at.

Having said that, there certainly is a special place for such tools in 3D artist's tool box.
If used wisely, they can act as a valuable supplement to your all-round 3D tool. I have often used
Bryce for landscape creation, rendered the rest in 3DS Max and combined it all in Photoshop.
Such procedure, if done well, will enable you to create unique work that is original and bears no
apparent resemblance to the special purpose tools involved.

3D landscape tools

Bryce - sleek interface, but not very practical; renders quite fast; easy to use.
MojoWorld - fractal-based; generates whole worlds, as opposed to single landscape; rendering not that fast.
Terragen - very realistic rendering; a freeware version available for non-commercial use; slow rendering.
Vue Infinite - quite realistic rendering; advanced lighting and atmosphere features; very capable at generating landscapes with plants.

3D character tools

DAZ - Studio - easy to use; limited; rather slow interface;
Poser - easy to use; sleek interface, but not very practical; unstable;

Final thoughts

There are of course many other tools out there. I feel that the tools I described here are mostly suitable for beginners.
Once you become more experienced, you'll know your needs much better and will find your way to other tools.

While trying these tools keep in mind that we are all different. A tool that works great for one person may not
work at all for another. Every tool out there has been created by people who
them selfs have preference/biases regarding how a tool should work, look like, behave, etc.
So the best strategy is to download a demo and try it for some time. If it doesn't suit you,
try another one until you find one that you like.

Finally, remember that all software are merely tools. It's the user of those
tools that makes all the difference. A novice, even when given the most powerful
software in the world, will still produce poor results. On the other hand, a talented, experienced
and dedicated user can produce great results using low-end tools. The more skilled you become, the
more you can use that to your advantage.

The Future Of 3D Animations - How It Is Used In Videos, Movies And Media

By Cody Landon

You may wonder of the unique aspects computer generated graphics bring through modern technology. With the innovations of information technology becoming more commonplace, the success of 3D animation continues. From those realistic figures to overwhelming landscapes such as computer generated cities, you can imagine the power that 3D Animation brings you.

This form of technology works from three important focuses: 3D modeling, layout and animation, and rendering. As these three steps work together, the product truly provides a unique design to the eye, making it art in motion through high-end technology.

3D animation roots from the modeling where the skeletal framework step occurs. You may notice your favorite video game character or perhaps movie character having proportions and designs that really give them that natural flow. This is the importance of modeling in 3D animation: it provides the sense of anatomical precision or even practical correctness as you engage in the graphics of this stage. Without proper 3D modeling, your 3D animation will lack functionality!

Once the model is ready and functional, the next important aspect to obtain that beautiful output is the natural layout and animation step. Regarded as an important asset to your 3D animation, you need to evaluate the spatial factor and the integration of your models in a given environment. Understanding the dynamics of Physics with the interaction forces will help you visualize and even realize the model in an environment once you layout them. When you combine these together, your layout and animation will really bring out the interaction between your models.

Of course, 3D animation cannot be completed unless you proper rendering is administered. This involves quality image generation. This naturally entails your 3D model provided the necessary elements such as lighting and other fine tuning to finalize your 3D model. With the different components in motion, rendering gives your model the quality it deserves to appeal to your desired audience. Rendering is regarded to be an important "make-or-break" step because the design will decide if your animation is appreciated or not.

As 3D animation becomes more prominent in the video game and movie industry, you will enjoy the details that bring out the quality and style you desire. As a forerunner in its industry, 3D animation creatively brings out a positive outlook in graphical appreciation and application. With these in mind, 3D animation continues to obtain its unique success. The future has become present as technology continues to progress.

Light, God's eldest daughter, is a principal beauty in a building.
Thomas Fuller

I don't think of form as a kind of architecture. The architecture is the result of the forming. It is the kinesthetic and visual sense of position and wholeness that puts the thing into the realm of art.
Roy Lichtenstein

Architect. One who drafts a plan of your house, and plans a draft of your money.
Ambrose Bierce

An architect should live as little in cities as a painter. Send him to our hills, and let him study there what nature understands by a buttress, and what by a dome.
John Ruskin

Ah, to build, to build! That is the noblest art of all the arts. Painting and sculpture are but images, are merely shadows cast by outward things on stone or canvas, having in themselves no separate existence. Architecture, existing in itself, and not in seeming a something it is not, surpasses them as substance shadow.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

No architecture is so haughty as that which is simple.
John Ruskin

We may live without her, and worship without her, but we cannot remember without her. How cold is all history, how lifeless all imagery, compared to that which the living nation writes, and the uncorrupted marble bears!
John Ruskin

All architecture is great architecture after sunset; perhaps architecture is really a nocturnal art, like the art of fireworks.
Gilbert Keith Chesterton

No person who is not a great sculptor or painter can be an architect. If he is not a sculptor or painter, he can only be a builder.
John Ruskin

Believe me, that was a happy age, before the days of architects, before the days of builders.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca

A structure becomes architectural, and not sculptural, when its elements no longer have their justification in nature.
Guillaume Apollinaire

When we build, let us think that we build for ever.
John Ruskin

All fine architectural values are human values, else not valuable.
Frank Lloyd Wright
