IMAGE WORKFLOW

This is a quick introduction into our image workflow in order to make this process as seamless as possible.

INTRODUCTION

Before we begin production, let us know some of the basics about your project. Once we receive all of the information listed below, we will evaluate the full scope of work and provide a proposal. If an agreement is made, the image process begins!

SCALE

plans + elevations

SCOPE

number of images

DEADLINES

date of completion

PROPOSAL

3D MODEL

Now we need a 3D model of your project. There are two options:

OPTION 1

OPTION 2

You provide us with a 3D model of your project. In this case you will need to provide us with the following:

- 3D file (sketchup, revit, 3D CAD)

- Site plans

- Building plans, elevations, sections

- Sketches

- Material + product references

If you don't have a 3D model, we can build one for you! In this case you will need to provide us with the following:

- Site plans

- Building plans, elevations, sections

- Sketches

- Material + product references

- Detail drawing set (if available)

MODEL PREPARATION

This is where the fun begins. We start by cleaning up the model and prepping it for rendering. During this process we begin to select preliminary camera angles and viewpoints. We also begin a continuous dialogue with your design staff, ensuring that we are capturing all details correctly. We produce several greyscale view options until we've come to a view we like.

RAW RENDER

Once the viewpoint has been selected, we move forward and begin adding textures and lighting, We continue an open dialogue with you, being careful to include all proper materials, fixtures, and furniture.

This part in the process is crucial. We do a lot of work in post-production so changing a camera angle or a major design feature after this point can have a major impact on the time required to complete the image. We realize how quickly things can change, but let's make sure to get everything ready to go before we move from this point.

POST-PRODUCTION

Once we finalize the raw render stage, we begin post-production. This is where the image really comes to life. We adjust mood and lighting, add people, and create a compelling image that best illustrates the beauty of your project.
