To get the best quality for an interior visualization, it is highly advisable to hire a professional company or team to create the visualization. There may be a higher initial cost, however that investment amounts to tremendous benefits. 3D Modeling and rendering can be complicated to execute. There are many things that an inexperienced, non-professional visualizer may miss in the process.
Evaluating Your Interior Visualization Decision
Even if you have signed a contract with the best CGI company, it is still important to know what defines the quality of an interior CGI rendering. Here is some important information to have when evaluating your interior visualization decision:
Before choosing a 3D rendering company to create your interior visualization, it is essential to survey all the candidates. One must examine each company’s portfolio to see their skills in CGI visualization. While surveying, it is advisable to see how they execute each element of a rendering. The more elements they visualize successfully, the more reliable they could be for your project.
2. Result Review
At the end of a contract, you will receive the final images and videos you ordered for the interior visualization. Most professional companies usually offer free revision as a form of accountability to their work. When one receives the final images, it is essential to review them thoroughly and carefully to spot any imperfections to revise. If you do not know what elements should be paid attention to, it would be difficult for you to take advantage of the revision period optimally.
Visualization might be difficult to perform. Fortunately, it is not difficult to review it. One can ensure their 3D renderer executes each element in a scene of interior visualization.
Here is a list of important elements to pay attention to during any interior visualization review...
1. Material Textures
The texture of the materials is the first thing one should pay attention to when reviewing a CGI rendering. Even an image of an empty room should have proper textures on every surface to make it look realistic.
Glass windows, steel frames, and ceramic floors are shiny, but light reflects differently off each material. In a rendering, a cushioned sofa or soft rug can communicate how comfortable they are merely through use of the proper graphical texture. Your 3D renderer should know how to texturize each type of material, otherwise your interior scene could end up looking unnatural.
2. Lighting and Shadows
Lighting is a crucial part of any interior design. Thus, it must be executed perfectly in any interior visualization. Adjusting brightness and shadows is not an easy job, especially if the room has multiple sources of light. Impeccably rendered lighting can truly enhance the visualization of different elements from an interior design such as a reading nook in a corner or a night lamp in the backyard.
If you wish to have a beautiful lighting design for your interior visualization, make sure to find a 3D renderer who knows how to visualize it realistically. Be sure to pay close attention to lighting details while reviewing the portfolio of any 3D visualization company.
3. Measurement and Proportion
One of the main purposes of interior visualization is to show the function and comfort of a room. Accurate measurements and proportions of a design shows people exactly how the room would serve its function. Components that appear unfit or disproportioned will make the entire scene look awkward.
A professional visualizer will measure every single component in a design. Even the smallest ornaments like plates on a table or a doorknob should be the correct size to make the room look realistic.
4. Theme and Style
An interior scene should have a consistent design direction to deliver harmonious unity. The design direction should be applied to all the components in the room. On the other hand, conflicting elements would make the interior look awkward and unpleasant to look at.
All the furniture in the room should be of the same style. For example, a fluffy sofa set would not match an industrial-style coffee table. Color tones matter too. An interior visualization needs to have a consistent color palette that goes well with the style of the interior design.
5. Supporting Components
Besides the essential furniture, your 3D artist should add little details to make the room look realistic. These components should be in sync with the grand theme. For example, an industrial-style living room would look nice with a dart board on the wall instead of a contemporary painting.
The more professional the artist, the more attention they will pay to these little details. A professional artist might even place a coffee cup on the table with thin smoke rising to add ambiance to an office scene. Visualization companies already have stocks of these graphic components, so they just need to add what matches with the theme of the design.
6. Rendering Angle
When all the components are well-positioned and the elements are all set properly, it is time to perform a final render. The angle the visualizer takes for the final images greatly affect the quality of the final result. Capturing the right angles becomes even more complex when creating an animated video.
A bird’s-eye view may be nice to show the room layout, while a human-eye level shows its practicality and function. The location and direction of the selected angle will also communicate different feelings. For example, selecting a rendering angle too close to a large desk would make the desk surface dominate the scene creating a false sense of compactness in the scene.
Looking at the big picture is not enough, because the beauty of interior visualization lies in little details in every corner. Even if only one element in a rendering is poorly-executed, it still may ruin the beauty of the other elements.
