Our 3D animation service takes 3D visualisation to a whole new level. Our animated interior walk-throughs and external drive-throughs bring projects to life while still in the planning or building process. Animation is a powerful media, and when mixed with visuals and audio it adds life and realism to your project. Your viewers will be taken on a journey around a new home, housing estates or commercial buildings.
We use your architectural plans to produce an accurate 3D model of your development including surrounding landscape and features. Animation can form the centre piece of a presentation, the focal point of an exhibition, or be included with marketing material on Video, DVD, or posted on a website. We can also upload the animations to video channels like Youtube and Vimeo. Contact us today for a free, no obligation quote.
A photomontage shows a scheme in its intended environment by superimposing a CGI of the proposed development into a number of high resolution photographs. These images give an accurate representation of how the proposed development will look when built. Their purpose is to accurately demonstrate the visual impact of a proposed development to the Planning Authorities within the wider context of its surrounding environment and from pre-defined viewpoints. The photomontage images are a very important tool in the planning process and can be the key factor in a successful planning application. We work closely with our clients to ensure the photomontage images are delivered accurately and within agreed timeframes.
VERIFIED PHOTOMONTAGE IMAGES
A Verified View is essentially a photomontage but a surveyor is used to record the camera's position & key points within the context. We then follow an established methodology to depict the proposed development, in context, with verifiable accuracy. We deliver high resolution images that include our method statement including the camera information and the "Before" and "After" views.
These specialised images are typically requested by the planning authority to support applications for prominent developments or those within a sensitive context.
VERIFIED PHOTOMONTAGE PROCESS
1: Discuss requirements with the client
2: Plans are supplied by the client and location of the views are agreed.
3: Visit the site to capture the photographs. We will record the camera's optical axis height, lens type, time of day and the cameras approximate position on the topographical survey (if available).
4: Site Survey. Our surveyor will visit site to survey each view's location and key points.
5: Build a 3D computer model of the proposed development applying proposed materials and using local references to determine lighting conditions on the day of the photography.
6: Camera Matching. The surveyed camera positions and key points are used to create virtual cameras using the real-world camera positions and focal lengths.
7: Render the 3D model and superimpose it accurately in to the site photography.
8: Draft images will be issued via email to our clientsto provide us with consolidated feedback on any adjustments required.
9: Final Images and Methodology report issupplied to the client
3D visualisation can help depict the results of a shadow study. A shadow study can play a vital role in securing your planning application. It allows local planners to make informed decisions on applications by identifying the impact that a proposed development will have on its surrounding environment in terms of the shadows cast.
Shadow studies can illustrate the shadows cast by a proposed development at any time of the year. However industry standard times are December 21st, March 21st and June 21st at 9am, 12 noon and 3pm. These times are the Winter and Summer solstice and the Spring Equinox. They cover the full spectrum of shadows that will be cast (longest to shortest). A shadow study should not be confused with a daylight analysis. A daylight analysis is the calculation of lost light in an existing building due to a proposed development.
3D product visualisation is another important service offered by our team at G-Net3D. We can create computer generated images or animations of any product using dwg files, autocad or solidworks files, sketches or photographs. Our large portfolio of product animations havehelped our clients to clearly visualise and market their new products with a great deal of success and also help customers to understand even the more complex of products. Product 3D visualisation and animationsare often used for marketing, design purposes, displayed at seminars/trade shows or uploaded to websites.Contact us today for a free, no obligation quote.View Portfolio
