The 3D modeling process produces a digital object capable of being fully animated, making it an essential process for character animation and special effects.
The ability to create designs with 3D modeling software can be a huge advantage for any graphic designer. It enables you to create photorealistic illustrations and mockups that are compelling to clients, as well as expand your skill set to craft blueprints for product and environmental designs. There are many types of of 3D modeling software.
But some 3D Architectural Modeling programs allow the creation of a 2D images using a process called 3D rendering. This technique is fantastic for creating hyper-realistic scenes using sophisticated lighting algorithms.
With 3D modeling, it also becomes easy to understand a structure in the context of the surrounding space. Transforming a building into a dream home by virtually surrounding it with lush landscaping is the power 3D modeling provides to an architect or designer. 3D architectural modeling provides a degree of realism that 2D images don’t. Using 3D modeling one can even visualize the texture of the tile that will be put up on a room’s floor.
Features of 3D Architectural Rendering :
Animation Theory & Principles
You’ll learn the animation process in 3ds max from start to finish. After you complete this course you will have all the necessary knowledge. We will cover 100% and we’ll NOT keep anything in secret. After learning theory and principles of animations, we will show you how to recreate our animation from start to finish. We will explain the whole setup and setting, additionally you’ll be able to download all the 25 scene files. We’ll cover both V-Ray and Corona renderers so you don’t have to choose the version.
Camera Setup & Movement
In our opinion camera movement is the most important thing (along with the lighting) in animations. We used our experience with real world videography and translated it into 3d animations. We will start by teaching you the principles of camera settings and movements. Then we will cover it all in practice. This is NOT a typical course where you learn long and boring walkthrough animations. We’ll teach you the best camera movements and tricks used by the best movie makers and videographers.
Light Animation & Timelapse
In animation lighting setup is exactly the same as in the still visualizations. Sometimes you want to animate the lighting though. We will show you how to make all the lighting animation you’ll ever need. Additionally we will teach you 3 ways to create time lapse animations. We will cover sun animation and spherical HDRI animated skys. Sometimes you don’t have a luxury of using an animated HDRI though, so we will show you how to create a beautiful animation with just a JPG flat sequence (Like in the last balcony shot for our animation).
Editing, Postproduction & Sfx
Producing everything in 3d and rendering individual sequences is just a first step in creating an outstanding animation. It’s like when you do a short movie from your holiday. You record everything while you are there, but then you have to spend a long time making a movie out of it. We’ll show you the whole process from the basics of video editing, through setting up your animation to match the music, postproduction and color correction and finally adding SFX and exporting the final animation. We’ll teach you Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects.
Benefits of Architectural 3D rendering include:
• Better visualization for all types of buildings
• Check for errors that might occur in the drawing process
• Better insight to surface patterns of Kitchen, Bathrooms, Offices, etc
• Generate architectural walkthroughs & virtual tours
• Efficient marketing and promotional tools for advertising
• Renderings with Custom interior or furniture
• Minimum errors/revisions in Design and RFIs
• Improved coordination among architects, engineers and contractor
• Optimum use of materials
• Lower project costs
