Have you ever wanted to see what your dream house would look like without having to build it? Do you wish to renovate your current house but you want to know what it might look like before you begin? Are you an architect that wants his or her floorplan to be converted into a more realistic medium? Problems like these can be solved easily and efficiently with the help of 3D visualisation.
What Is 3D Visualisation?
3D visualisation is the process of modelling and rendering a video or image of a digitally created environment. Depending on the client’s requirements, the environment can be either photorealistic, which means it is made to look like the real world, or stylised, which means that it is created in an unrealistic, exaggerated style.
What is 3D Modelling?
3D modelling is the creation of digital 3-dimensional objects with the use of advanced 3D development software. Our team of modellers can create highly detailed digital environments that match your needs and specifications. The several tools and assets at our disposal allow us to generate lifelike objects and materials.
What Is Rendering?
Rendering is the process of making a scene look more realistic by letting the various objects and materials in the scene process the light in the scene, allowing them to respond to it naturally and realistically. By utilising powerful high-end hardware and software, we can produce photorealistic computer generated images that will not seem any different from a photo of a real-life location.
Who am I?
My name is Breyten Odendaal. I recently started an internship for 3D modelling at Virtual Reality South Africa, a virtual reality and augmented reality software development company based in Roodepoort, Johannesburg.
To demonstrate the power and versatility of 3D visualisation and 3D development software, I created a simple living room and decorated it in two very different styles.
One Room in Two Styles
When designing a room’s interior, it is highly important to keep the occupant of the room in mind, whether the occupant is real or imaginary. The first version of the room was done in an “old-fashioned” style. The idea was that the room is owned and occupied by an elderly person.
I eventually started redecorating the room in a modern, more contemporary style. The end result is a sleek, almost futuristic living room overlooking a breathtaking skyline. The idea for this style was that the occupant is a more youthful, modern person.
As you can see, 3D visualisation is an incredibly powerful and versatile tool to make use of. With a few changes in texture, lighting, and decoration, a room can become completely unrecognisable, even though it is the exact same room. However, 3D visualisation isn’t limited to simple living rooms. Larger venues, outdoor scenes and even entire buildings can be created and rendered with 3D modelling software.
