What is Rendering in 3d animation process?

3D Rendering & Animation Services3D rendering is the process of a computer taking raw information from a 3D scene(polygons, materials, and lighting) and calculating the final result. The output is usually a single image or a series of images rendered & compiled together.

Rendering is usually the final phase of the 3D creation process, with the exception being if you take your render into Photoshop for post-processing.

While rendering stills will allow you to view and save the image from the render buffer when it is complete, animations are a series of images, or frames, and are automatically saved directly out to a drive after being rendered.

After rendering the frames, you may need to edit the clips, or first use the Compositor to do green-screen masking, matting, colour correction, DOF, and so on to the images. That result is then fed to the Sequencer where the strips are cut and mixed and a final overlay is done.

Finally, you can render out from the Sequencer and compress the frames into a playable movie clip.

The rendering stage is usually associated with computer-generated animation, although rendering can also refer to the process of creating final animation frames in traditional hand-drawn animation.

Rendering is used in both 2D and 3D computer animation. It is the process of getting the final assembled animation scenes or pieces out of the computer in the format of a sequence of individual frames.

The aim of rendering is to generate a series of individual pixel-based frames or a video clip.

What Rendering & animation services do we offer?

We offer one of the best 3D architectural renderings at the most economical pricing and a quick turnaround time. To be cost-effective, Architectural 3D Renderings and Architectural 3D animation services (walkthroughs) have become essential nowadays, considering its use in daily marketing needs.

We offer Architectural 3D Rendering services to the Australian market for all digital media needs that relate to Architectural 3D Modelling, 3D Rendering & 3D walkthrough animation services. We specialize in offering high-quality services for 3D walkthrough animations, 3D floor plans, architectural 3D visualization, 3D modelling, architectural 3D rendering, and 3D furniture modelling services.

We aim to get it right the first time on all our projects!

In today’s world, 3D Visualization has ever-expanding applications in science, education, engineering products (e.g., product visualization), interactive multimedia, medicine, etc. 3D rendering services play a vital role in the AEC industry.

Architectural 3D rendering is the final process of creating the actual 2D image or animation from the prepared 3D perspective. This can be compared to taking a photo or filming the scene after the setup is finished in real life. The result is a photorealistic rendering that is exactly like a photograph taken of an actual building.

The 3D CAD technology available to engineers and architects these days promises to reduce the time, effort and capital investment made into a project by offering an unprecedented level of access and ease in terms of designing. This technology also produces significantly better results as all design can be vetted outright at the designing stage, which would otherwise become noticeable only during manufacturing. Architecture 3D modelling helps create realistic designs as it appears in the real world. With 3D modelling, clients can get accurate 3D floor plans on an accurate scale with detailed boundaries or separations.

Contact Us today for 3D Visualization – 3D walkthrough animation and architectural 3D renderings to stay ahead of the competition by creating effective campaigns. With 3D rendering, users can get a much more accurate and realistic view of the architecture. As opposed to plain 2D drafts, 3D rendering helps in showing a life-like presentation of architectures with lighting and effects. We can handle 3D rendering for both interiors and exteriors of architectures.

What information do we require to create Rendering & Animations?

In order to create rendering or Animations, we can work from hand-marked-up sketches or a design specification.

We need some more details like materials, frames/second, number of views, interior details,

What Rendering & Animation file types do we deliver

Common file formats are jpg and png. PNG has the advantage of supporting transparency but has larger file sizes. Transparency means the image can allow for portions of the image to be see-through.

Product renderings may use transparency to place a rendering over another image using software such as Adobe Photoshop. Both jpg and png formats are great for drafts and revisions, but when you request your final images, you should receive EXR or another HDRI format.

An HDRI format allows much more information to be stored and can produce much better results when printed. Although, generally, differences between HDRI and formats such as jpg and png only become apparent if you plan on making modifications to the images, it can be great to have.

Requesting the PSD (Adobe Photoshop) file in addition to the final image file can be useful if you ever foresee yourself needing to alter the image in the future. A PSD file allows a designer to separate out layers, effects, and backgrounds for easier manipulation.

If you’re planning on printing your house render or any image, for that matter, be sure your file is an insufficient resolution for the required print. Additionally, be sure to check on the printer’s requirements for the file type. One of the safer file formats for printing purposes in PDF format. Be sure to get this information directly from your printing company to ensure you can request exactly what is needed ahead of time.

Video formats can get a lot more complicated than still images.

At its most basic form, a video is just a set of images played quickly enough that you cannot see the transition between frames. The rate at which they are shown is called the frame rate: the higher the frame rate, the smoother the video will be during fast movements. Standard frame rates are 24p, 25p, 30p, 60p, and 120p. However, there are many variations of frame rates. Click here for Wikipedia’s excellent article on frame rates.

Raw or uncompressed video files are very large. A minute of footage can take up several gigabytes. Raw footage is the best quality but is difficult to transfer or play. If you are going to have the footage edited, you should ask for raw video, but plan for plenty of time to transfer it.

Finished videos are usually compressed using a codec (a compression-decompression standard). Picking a codec is a matter of balancing compatibility, file size, and quality. We offer animation services and generally provide our clients with WMV files for Windows and MOV files for Mac.

If a client is going to post the video online, we provide an h.264 mp4 file. All these can still be edited, but generally, you will only experience a small decrease in video quality. It is good practice to request the raw footage just in case.

As mentioned, the uncompressed footage created in animation can often be unmanageable and needs to be compressed. On average, a 1-minute animation file in 1080P is around 55 gigs (often much too large to be transferred). We typically use Adobe’s Media Encoder with H.264 in good quality to bring that file down to about 87MB, often seeing no visible compression artifacts.

How much do Rendering & Animations cost?

Australian Design & Drafting provide fixed cost quotation where possible. As we know our clients need to work within a budget.
