Eight basic principles of successful visualization

December 25, 2016

Visualization a long ago moved over a separate sphere of activities and 3D artists themselves sometimes are more famous than their clients-architects are. Nevertheless, still happens that the architects themselves have to finish off the images to a final representation. “Architizer” portal’s authors studied the works of acknowledged masters of the visualization and they derived eight rules that can lead out your works to the new level.

Make image deeper

One of the most effective tricks making your model to look like a photo – right camera settings in a scene. Do not neglect to sharpen the depth and use it for fast reaching expression. Using this reception, you can divert viewer from a problem spot.

Front plan’s elements create a mood, and another a bit blurred architectures on a background will look effective.

There are not any ideal subjects

You will not see any ideal surfaces and edges in the natural world. There are always some deflection, cleavages and roughness. On the first look it can seems that it is not important nuance to waste your time, but a human eye very sensitive to this kind of details and can notice that something is wrong.

That why all visual specialists deliberately spoil and distort their models to do them closer to our not ideal world. For example, an interior’s fabric is always with some folds that distributed unevenly and outside elements are slightly deformed.

Use evening images.

Twilight pictures are always have an advantage of its look. Soft light from inside gives a cozy atmosphere of surroundings. The main thing here – to set every lighting source and to save real settings of every element. Do not forget about the separate details, like underwater lighting, that let lead up the image to the higher level.

Textures can ruin everything.

Low quality textures and bad worked materials can ruin even very good architecture. Always try paying attention on the key elements that immediately are seen. Especially it concerns glass surfaces, thickness and transparency of which demand some delicate approach.

Bring character that is more dramatic

In fictional world of the architectural visualization is often try to keep bright and sunny weather, where sharp shadow outlines allow additionally underline a building’s shape. Nevertheless, you should not neglect more extremal weather conditions. It can help enhance the atmosphere, add some character and create more believable picture.

Let an object live a few years.

One more an effective approach to give breath into your renders a little more life – to use the aged textures. In a  just one year after the object was built snow, rain and burning sun will make significant adjustments to its view. It does not mean that the object immediately will get unpresentable view. Vice versa, these sort of details will add more realism and your customer will not have any doubts about the conception.

Arrange a mess up.

Strong truth is that the accurate interiors is being only on glossy magazine’s pages. In our life, these situations ruin on the first day, when the object begins live the real life. However, we can and must to use them while working with the visualization. Drop a few bales of magazines, miss something down on the floor, and set in a free arrangement your outside furniture in front of the building. It will take something about half an hour, but after that immediately your object will come to live.

The nature will help.

Some of people neglect quality surroundings, considering that it is enough to have just one good foreshortening to represent a project successfully. As a result, they can get the opposite situation in the end. Not expressed group of some trees on the background or several similar bushes in front of the door can transfer its not understandable mood to the object itself. Professionals advise pay attention the environment, where the object is, as much time as it takes to make the architecture. Otherwise, whole process of your hard working might be in vain.
