FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF WORKING WITH YOU AS OPPOSED TO MY IN-HOUSE TEAM?
When compared to most inhouse teams, 3d rendering studios tend to produce visuals of a much more photorealistic quality, so it really boils down to what your specific goals are with 3d renderings. If you`re looking for a tool to help with initial design development then photorealistic renderings may not be worth it. On the other hand, if you`re looking for a tool to help you win over difficult clients, get decision makers from different areas on the same page, or to serve marketing purposes, then working with us would be the best option. Also working with us (an overseas 3d rendering company) allows you to have a reliable rendering partner for a much lower price than hiring a team specially dedicated to renderings in your office.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CREATE A 3D ARCHITECTURAL RENDERING?
This depends on a few factors. Will you provide us with a 3D model or will we need to work directly from CAD drawings? How many images would you like of your project? How quickly will you be able to give us feedback in between each round of deliveries? How important is meeting a tight deadline? With these factors in mind, creating renderings can take anything from 1-6 Weeks. For a timeline estimation on a specific project, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or +1 347-994-0951.
HOW DOES YOUR RENDERING PROCESS WORK?
We break down each project into small stages and set milestones with our clients. For 3d architectural renderings, we propose several different camera angles, prepare preview renderings, and then move on to the revision rounds. After the revision rounds we move on to preparing the final renderings and can then start with additional products (3d animations, virtual tours, 2d floor plans, apps etc) which follow a similar process.
CAN YOU CREATE A UNIQUE STYLE OF IMAGES FOR MY PROJECT?
Yes, we are able to create images of a specific visual language for our premium clients. This process starts with learning about your preferences and creating a guideline specifically tailored to your brand. The result of this process is renderings (and other products) that become engraved into your brand identity.
CAN YORK WORK WITH MY 3D MODEL? IS THIS HELPFUL?
Providing us with your 3D model is always better than just providing us with CAD drawings. That being said, most 3D models delivered by clients aren’t good enough to create photorealistic 3D renderings and therefore need to be optimized in ordert to achieve photorealistic results. We typically have more work with models that are created in engineering software (e.g. Revit, Rhino etc.) and less work with models created in architectural software such as SketchUp and ArchiCAD.
HOW MANY ROUNDS OF REVISIONS DO I HAVE BEFORE THE FINAL RENDERINGS?
Our standard proposal includes two revisions but this can occasionally be adjusted, and if you are looking to save on costs then one revision may be a more suitable option. On the other hand, if your project is at an early stage then we would highly recommend going through more revision rounds to test out different design options and to set the final design in place. After the initial project briefing, your designated project manager will let you know what amount of the revisions will be advisable for your project.
CAN I CHOOSE THE ANGLES OF THE RENDERINGS?
At the beginning of your project we will send you a selection of drafts showing your project from several different angles so that you can choose the one(s) that you like the most. We only start creating photorealistic renderings once you’re happy with the angles.
CAN YOU ENLARGE THE RENDERING SO THAT IT CAN BE SHOWN ON A BILLBOARD?
We can make the renderings as large as you need them to be. We only need to know the exact size that you need so that we`re able schedule our production ahead of time. The process is very similar to that of creating standard renderings with us only needing to spend a little extra time on enhancing small details to make sure that the quality of the renderings is maintained when shown on a large scale printing.
I HAVE RENDERINGS CREATED BY ANOTHER STUDIO/ IN-HOUSE TEAM – CAN YOU IMPROVE THEM?
Yes, we are able to improve any renderings created by your in-house team or by another studio as long as you are able to provide us with the rendering source files. If you have only an image and aren’t able to get your hands on the source files then we will only be able to use the image as a reference, and will have to create the renderings from scratch. We carry out a lot of work that is a continuity of what architects begin with their in-house rendering teams. This process typically works with the in-house team creating renderings that are good enough to approve the design of a project and is then passed onto us (along with source files) to create photorealistic renderings for marketing purposes.
