Creation of architectural 3D animation is the most time-consuming and expensive process in the field of architectural 3D visualization.
But the visual effect of its use is superior to that of any static image. In contrast to the usual 3D visualization for which a 3D model of what directly falls into the perspective is created, for a 3D animation a full 3D model of an object is usually created.
Also, the price is affected by the fact that for one second of the video it is about 20-25 static photos, which requires the services of special render farms to calculate a huge number of photos/frames.
What could be better than the opportunity before buying an apartment, practically live, to see the entire territory of the residential complex, take a walk along the playground, park and look around.
Thanks to the 3D walkthrough, developers also have the opportunity to show apartments, finishes, without leaving the sales office.And if you use virtual reality glasses, your customers will be able to fully immerse themselves in the atmosphere and be present at an object that has not yet been built.
Companies such as McDonald’s have been using computer graphics since 1987 for architectural design, seating, space planning, and kitchen equipment design. 3D computer visualization covers more and more areas.
It is used everywhere: in construction, in design, in advertising and many other fields. The contribution of 3D walkthrough animation is enormous in the development of these and many other areas of activity.
The use of 3D animation in a presentation or advertisement will qualitatively increase the impression of the project and may have a serious impact on its future destiny. In this article we’ll consider applying 3D walkthrough animation in various areas.
