Architectural render of the day for the 5th of December, 2013.Read More
For many buyers, real estate is just as much about emotion as it is investment. If you’re going to sell them a $500,000 luxury home, you’ve got to sell them the dream, not just the design.
Architectural renderings give buyers a realistic, 3D-looking image of a home or building long before groundbreaking.Read More
Here is another interactive house for demo purposes. All you need is the Unity Web Player which you can get from the link below. It very easy to install and doesn't require a restart or admin privileges. Give it a spin and let me know what you think.
To use it just click on the image below. NOTE: THE APP WILL NOT WORK ON MOBILE DEVICES.
I saw where SideFX, the maker of Houdini, was developing a product called Houdini Engine. It seems that it's basically a stripped down version of Houdini that can be plugged into other 3D software. Right now they're working on plugins for Maya and Unity (which I use). If you have every looked into Houdini you will see that is a very different piece of software. It is built differently from other 3D apps and is a staple in the Visual Effects Industry. Check it out in this video below.
Here is a free set of textures that I recently created for a project. It is a simple texture of hardiplanck with appropriate diffuse, normal and displacement maps. Enjoy
Here are some new renderings that I've been working. They were taken from a brand new set of renderings created for a client building a home here in the Lowcountry. I modified the originals and added a slight vintage look.
I wanted to share our newest service: interactive panoramas. A 360 degree view from a fixed vantage point right in your web browser. Click the image below to access. Note: Click HERE for iPad, iPhone HTML5 version.
I am excited to show off this newest set of renderings. SInce I was trained as a landscape architect (MLA Clemson University) I always enjoy rendering the site along with the architecture.
Village Features recently completed an interior animation for gorgeous house that is currently under construction in Palmetto Bluff.
Well, it's not really a new video but an edited version of the one that was already posted. Instead of making you sit through nearly 3 min. of footage you can quick blaze through 30 sec. and still get the gist of it. Just visit my simulation page under services or click below to play it.
I you haven't already please check out the simulation page here. I have posted two of my most recent web demos. I am really excited about this service because it deals with some of the shortcomings of traditional and current digital media. First and most importantly it is interactive. The reason this is significant is now my clients have the opportunity to explore a space by themselves using easy navigation controls. They are not limited by a predetermined path like typical animations so there is a greater degree of freedom associated with this approach. Check out the demos to see it in action. NOTE: They require a free plugin from Unity Technologies to run It is quick and easy to install, and is perfectly safe for your computer so don't be worried about having to install it.
Just uploaded a new video for Allison Ramsey Architects.
We have added some really cool renderings to our gallery in the past week. They are more along the photoreal type with realistic daylight, etc. These type of renders are great for several reasons:
- You can show customers what something will look like as if it's already built.
- They are calculated using real world physics, so the lighting, colors, materials, are more accurate.
- You don't need to burden your in house designers with learning the ins and outs of trying to do photoreal renderings (we take care of that of course).
I'll spare you the boring details. This is from Allison Ramsey Architects model "Griffin Community Center". It's modeled in Sketchup (like all the other models here), rendered in Cheetah3D, and finished in Photoshop. It looks a little more "gritty" than the last post. Anyway hope you enjoy it and keep posted for more updates.
This a WIP image striving to achieve a sense of photorealism. Let us know what you think by leaving us a comment. Thanks!
Here is an image I created in collaboration with real estate development students at Clemson University's Master of Real Estate Development (MRED) program. The proposed site was located next to downtown Charlotte, NC and included a mixed use design concept. The different colors correspond to the different types of building uses (eg. residential, commercial, etc.).
I am really excited to share with you this image that was created just this morning. I tried to go with the copper roof look (sorry if it isn't exactly accurate) in the continuing addition to my color studio shots. It took over 8 hours to render on my iMac while I was sleeping and with a little cropping and color tweaking...viola! Hope you enjoy.
Note: The house, "The Craven" is designed by Allison Ramsey Architects of Beaufort, SC.
Continuing with some of my 'experiments' with rendering/color processing combinations, I have submitted more images for your viewing pleasure. I would like to thank the great folks on the Cheetah3D forum for helpful tips and example scenes. Thank you and enjoy.
