Compositing is a specialized CAD technique that’s both an art and a science. Put simply; it’s combining visual elements from different sources to create a finished scene. Cad Crowd’s 3D technology experts use high-tech tools and creative experience to deliver compelling 3D aerial visualizations. Whether working with footage or placing a model inside a still photograph, Cad Crowd’s 3D rendering pros will use some degree of composting to create the final product.
High-quality 3D aerial renderings are much more than a simple cut-and-paste. Cad Crowd’s skilled designers have the tools and techniques to model state-of-the-art lighting, textures, and transitions. We’ve mastered the art of aerial/atmospheric perspective, perhaps the most important creative skill for 3D aerial rendering.
Aerial/atmospheric perspective is a technique that simulates the real-world conditions of atmosphere and light. Air is not invisible. As light moves through the air, water particles, smoke, or smog reflect and refract the rays. This means that objects in a scene that are closer to the viewer will have more saturation, contrast, and detail. Objects far away will disappear into the color of the sky.
Using principles of atmospheric perspective, our experienced CAD designers add a new level of realism to professional 3D aerial renderings. With decades of combined CAD experience, we adhere to the highest standards in the 3D rendering industry. Contact us for a free quote today!
In addition to atmospheric/aerial perspective, Cad Crowd’s CAD designers use several technical tools to deliver compelling 3D aerial visualizations. One popular method is to composite using a combination of Photoshop and V-Ray with a rendering program like 3ds Max. Ever wonder how we do this? Here are the general steps a Cad Crowd designer might take to complete your 3D aerial rendering project:
1) Develop a concept according to the client brief. Find reference images with a general mood that inspires the client. Create some concept images to show to the client.
2) Using V-Ray, a popular plugin for CAD rendering software, set up the basic 3D scene; gamma; frame buffer; and subpixel mapping. Choose basic materials and reflectivity for the model.
3) Using the client’s backdrop image or frame, prepare cameras and approximate camera matching, ensure that focal points match the horizon line. Accurately calculate the following technical and design elements:
There are three camera angles commonly used for 3D renders: eye level, ground level, and an aerial view. For 3D aerial renderings, we’ll choose the aerial view.
Your Cad Crowd designer will expertly choose the right camera angle for your project. For example, we know that the one-point perspective works well for a top-down view, a two-point perspective best serves a viewpoint slightly above the horizon line, while a three-point perspective will give your project a higher aerial angle.
Perspective convergence is how long the perspective lines get before they converge at their points. A short convergence will give a dynamic feel to your render, but a longer, more ‘relaxed’ convergence is desirable for most 3D aerial renderings. You can chat with your designer about what you think is the most effective perspective convergence for your project.
Depth of field is a technical characteristic of photography that helps create photorealistic 3D renderings. It’s defined as the distance between the nearest and furthest objects that appear focused in a scene. A scene can have a short depth of field, where, for example, only images in the front are in focus, or it can have a more extended depth of field, where the entire scene is rendered in sharp detail. This is another design choice that can be made between the client and the designer.
When adding people, vehicles, and objects to a rendering, your professional Cad Crowd designer will ensure each element is placed on the same ground level and shares a common line of sight. This is a design technique that takes years of practice and experience. It’s essential to achieving professional-quality 3D aerial renderings.
Last but not least, principles of design excellence include achieving the right balance in any composition. Balance doesn’t just mean symmetry. An asymmetrical balance can add a sense of dynamism to your 3D aerial rendering. Cad Crowd’s professional CAD designers will consult with you on achieving the best compositional balance to convey your project’s message.
1) Once the design’s technical details are chosen, it’s time to expertly create the scene’s aerial/atmospheric perspective. The designer will note the direction of light sources in the backdrop image. Then, using a tool like V-Ray properties, they’ll set the render engine, indirect illumination, radiance map, light cache, multimattes, etc. to match.
2) The next step is to blend each element into the scene using masks, extra texture, brushes, levels, overlays, and shadows. A designer may mask the render and further refine the blending. Details can be added using photographic references and the stamp tool. The designer can continue to blend the render into the background image using curves.
3) Custom brushes may be used to add more detail while adjusting colors and contrasts. Your designer can overlay details like sky colors, vegetation, and lighting effects using principles of atmospheric perspective and the stamp tool. Adding dramatic lighting, light streaks, flares and other 2D effects is possible if the client wishes. Then, the designer will make final adjustments in global hue and saturation.
4) The designer will present a draft to the client for feedback then make fine-tune adjustments to the scene.
5) Your 3D aerial rendering is complete!
