What to look for when Choosing a 3D Rendering Studio - Part 1

What should you be looking for when hiring a 3D rendering studio for your business? Here’s Part 1 of our top 7 tips for outsourcing creative work.

3D Rendering is an amazing way to bring your design and product visions to life. The possibilities are endless, and when done right, you can really elevate your marketing and sales, and wow your audience.

But, you’ve spent 20 minutes on Google and realised there are countless studios in your city alone. You’re spoilt for choice and have no idea where to start, how much 3D rendering should cost, or who to trust.

We get it. There are lot of 3D rendering studios around, and while many are professional and know their stuff, there are studios out there that are using stolen imagery in their portfolio, overcharging clients, or outsourcing work to overseas artists and not delivering the quality of work you’re expecting.

So where to start? What should you be looking for when choosing the right 3D rendering studio for your business?

AUSTRALIAN-BASED

The first thing you should be paying attention to is where the studio is located. When outsourcing any creative work, it’s always best to work with a local company that handles all the work within its in house trusted team. If you are unable to find anyone local, then making sure that they speak your native language is the next best thing, as communication during the project is one of the most important aspects of the process. Outsourcing 3D rendering overseas may be a quick fix and appear to be the cheaper option for your business, but in most cases, it isn’t going to deliver the same level of quality you can expect from an Australian-based studio which abides by Australian Consumer Law.

Some tips to help you choose a studio:

Talk to your chosen company over the phone
Set up a meeting with your chosen company if they are local (Face to Face or via Zoom/Google Hangouts)
Ask if they have an in-house team or if they outsource the work elsewhere
Importantly do you get a good feeling when you communicate with them? Does it feel like they can help you, or is it just a struggle to even know what is going on?

BUILDING KNOWLEDGE

Working with a local 3D rendering studio also means they should have local knowledge of materials, painting colours and finishes that are available at major local retailers.

At rdvis, we work everyday with key suppliers in the homes and design industry and have a deep understanding of all building materials and finishes to add beautiful detailing into our renders to make them look and feel as life-like as possible. We’re constantly receiving feedback from our clients who are impressed by how accurate our imagery looks.

Some tips to help you choose a studio:

Ask if they have worked on projects in your area before
Mention some specific items or details you are wanting to showcase and see if your chosen company have experience with them
Look at their work and see if key building details are included. For example details with kitchens and cabinets, or exterior structural details.

TECHNICAL SKILLS + EXPERIENCE

How long has the studio been established? How many years’ experience does the team have that will be looking after your rendering designs? These are the questions you should be asking your studio to ensure the designers completing your job have the technical skills and capabilities to offer you the service you deserve.

Many studios will also be continuing to advance their skills and keep up with the latest 3D rendering techniques and software. At rdvis, we continue to invest in the latest software to offer world-class results for our clients. We’re also members of many online communities and attend international conferences and courses dedicated to learning Architectural Visualisation and advancing our skills. What we do is an art, and we are passionate about what we create and how we create it.

Some tips to help you choose a studio:

How many years has the company been operating?
Do they have a lot of projects on their site or to show you?
Who have some of their previous clients been?

That's the end of Part 1. A lot of digest but theres more. We will be posting part two soon, and then a bit of a recap so that everyone can make the right choice for their next project.
