Before anything can happen, we need to collect data about your project. Below is a basic list of the data we need and our standard process when working on images.
- 3D Model (SKP, 3DS, OBJ, FBX) if available
- Architectural Plans (DWG is best, PDF )
- Sections and Elevations (DWG is best, PDF)
- Landscaping Plans (PDF)
- Exterior Finishes (PDF)
- Photography (RAW unedited) (*where applicable)
Interiors (in addition to the above):
- Joinery Details (PDF or DWG - Cabinet drawer layouts and locations of items etc)
- Interior Finishes (PDF/List - Stones, Flooring Cabinets etc)
- Fixtures and Appliances (PDF/List - Ovens, Taps, Cooktops etc)
- Furniture Styling and Mood - We would normally do something modern and luxurious
1 - Data Collection
We require certain types of information to deliver the best possible representation of your project in 3D. We will work with you to ensure that we have everything we need to be able to efficiently visualise your project. The more information you can share the better, from DWG's to PDF's to 3D Models, everything helps.
2 - MOdeldrafts
Once we have all the necessary data, we will build in 3D all of the information provided, then provide grey ‘clay’ renders for camera view and structural approval and feedback. Usually we will provide you with 2-3 alternative camera views, using our background in photography and visualisation to best capture the project.
3 - Colourdrafts
Once materials and finishes have been applied to the model we will then provide images for approval and feedback. We also will start further refining lighting and mood to best represent the final feel of your projects images. This is the first main revisions of the image.
4 - Revisions
We allow up to two revisions from the Colour Draft stage, for adjustments and feedback, to get the images looking how you envisioned them. We pride ourselves in doing everything we can to create you the best image possible for your project, however in rare cases where revisions equate to more than 50% of the overall workload, timelines and costs can potentially increase.
5 - Finals
Now that the image has gone through revisions and is approved for the final version we will send it to our render farm for processing. This can take anywhere from 24 hours to 72 hours to complete depending on the complexity and technical details of the scene. We also improve and adjust things in Photoshop to add the finishing touches to your realistic renders.
