With 3D being an ever-changing landscape it can be difficult to know where to start.
I have been working in the industry for 10 years now and during that time I have been lucky enough to claim as friends and mentors some of the most talented 3D artists in the world.
Through this post I wanted to share some of their knowledge and wisdom with you, so if you are starting out in 3D, or simply have an interest in the subject, read on for 20 Top Tips from the cream of the crop.
Today I am going to show you how to create 360 stereoscopic renders. We can use these 360's on Websites, Apps, Facebook, Youtube, Octulus Rift and Google Cardboard. I will also show you how you can render multiple views locally on one machine. In a later lesson I will show you how to add hotspots. But first let's create some 360's. You can download the step by step PDF including the render settings.
This article aims to shed light on the world of rendering for architects and interior designers. I want to answer questions that I often get asked. As well as help you work out if using 3D visualisations artists is worth it for your team.
Here are a few images from a collaboration with the multi-award winning 161 London. After visiting the apartment in Park Lane I got to work on creating the visuals. The project is due for completion any day now, so stay tuned for the final images.
This project was for the award winning architectural practice Meloy Architects. The build is on a private plot of land on the edge of Fulking. A stunning four bedroom 'Passivhaus' with a fabulous Pavillion-style viewing floor. Completely at ease with the contours of the environment and maximising the enjoyment of the panoramic views over the surrounding National Park.
For designers to have their work understood it is often required to have 3D images produced. This gives clients visual aids rather than hoping they can imagine their new jet interior from CAD plans. If a client is not sold on the idea yet or hesitating to sign on the dotted line then 3D renderings are a good way seal the deal.
