3d Animation Walkthrough Services

3d walkthrough services are a more complex product than 3d exterior or interior renders, that is, it requires a completely different amount of power from the 3d architectural studio itself. Most freelancers or beginner 3d studios cannot provide this at all. Inside the studio, there should be machine servers that are interconnected and that do fast high-quality 3d rendering. It is also very important to mention that the minimum set of people for a high-quality 3d video is one director, two 3d artists, and one animator (a person who creates animations separately for each object). CGI Kite can make a 3d animation tour for your real estate project as we have a team of professionals and powerful equipment.

3D Walkthrough Animation

3d animation walkthrough services are much more powerful than 3d architectural rendering services. As 3d animation allows to convey the whole atmosphere, the mood of a property’s interior and exterior areas along with the right music for a particular video. It is a very powerful sales tool, bringing the emotion of each specific location so that the viewer fully enjoys it.
Let’s take a look at some examples:

Firstly, imagine you have a residential complex designed for a family with children. So that people want to live there they need to be shown a favorable atmosphere and comfort that they expect to get living there. In this case, we were supposed to show playgrounds, lobbies, waiting areas, and infrastructure where you can walk with a stroller under the sky. Calm music is suitable for such a video, creating a feeling of complete consolation.

For the second example, we will look at a real estate luxury business center, with expensive cars in its parking lot. Here we have to show all the luxury of work there, all kinds of benefits and dignity of life. We would force action dynamic music. Only 3d walkthrough animation services can carry all these feelings, intensity. The picture, on the other hand, cannot completely cover the gestalt teaching of emotions.
A 3d animation video tour is such a strong benefit for your real estate business. Of course, it cannot replace the salesperson in the sales department for 100% but can be used as a working separate unit, bringing more clients

Because 3d walkthrough rendering product “tells” the person its story. A 3D video can work better than some other person making a presentation about a residential complex. That is it, not every person will be able to convey and tell about all the details. What layouts, what beautiful interior you will see, etc. A 3D video is a powerful tool, which can work cyclically for a long time by itself, namely, selling and advertising your residential complex.
Having made, conditionally, 90 seconds of video, it can still be divided into 15-20 second videos. And you can make separate shots with general informational content for your Instagram, Facebook pages, or for the website’s different blocks. With interior and exterior zones, with locations inside, separately for each video.
One big video is beneficial because you get not one video, but a large product, divided into different segments.
Everything is relatively simple.
We work in the 3ds Max program with Corona render. We recommend resolving 2K, this is enough to present it on large screens, show it on Instagram, Facebook, separately compiled videos for their format. It can also be done in 4K resolution. But this will take more time because, with a higher resolution, machines render more. We usually do a 3D animation tour at 30 fps. If we usually do one 3d render, when using 3d walkthrough rendering services, this is about 30 renders per one second. Thus, for the entire video, we make about 1000 or even more 3d renders.

3D Architectural Walkthrough technology

It is necessary to separately make an animation of people, dynamic lighting, and effects. The water also needs to be animated separately before rendering the whole scene.
A usual high-quality 3d video requires 4 to 8 people to participate, depending on the scale of the period and the overall importance of the project. Specialists without whom, in principle, it is impossible to create a high-quality 3d video are an art director, two 3d artists and one animator, a project manager. Further, the team can scale based on the importance of the project volume.
To make a competent 3D video, we need to have a lot more information. We need to understand where the building is, what is the environment around it, and what planning solutions are inside. When the Art Director starts working, he/she needs to write a quality script that will satisfy the client.
Since high-quality 3D animation is not a flight of cameras from point A to point B along a straight vector. Directing has certain rules, for example, you cannot give one target vector to the same camera 2 times in a row. Depending on which video is soft or dynamic, you need to choose the right music. So the script is written first. Further, all the points and spans that we want to show are approved by the client.

Our Expertise

To convince you of our professionalism in 3d architectural walkthrough services, we would like to tell you about the case study of the Diva at the Bay project.
Our task was:
Making high-quality 3D animation for an expensive residential complex in the UAE. Bringing the whole atmosphere of a luxurious comfortable real estate staging there by making the right camera spans that show photorealistic images in incredible detail, choosing the right dynamic music and the right lighting.
What materials we were given, the amount of work we got to do:
The client provided us with drawings and a 3D model of the main building that we optimized.

We divided half of the island out of nothing

The whole area of ​​space is under construction. An island with as yet non-existent objects. We did not have a master plan of the models or drawings of the surroundings of the streets.
And that was our main problem. We solved it by collecting photos from all different objects of names that were around the perimeter, collecting information from different pieces, allowing us to create 3d models by ourselves. That is, we looked at the photos of other projects and, based on the photos of these projects, we created new 3d models that were integrated into our project. And this allowed us to make more dynamic, wider-span cameras so that we were not limited and we could show the object from its very best sides. Here is the result of our efforts,well-organized systematic teamwork of professionals.
