3D architectural rendering is fast changing and we have been keeping pace with the rapid changes in the world of 3D architectural and 3D interior rendering. At the upcoming Future Interiors Qatar 2016 conference, we will spell out the most recent changes in the 3D rendering technological landscape. As a leading 3D interior design rendering studio in Doha, we have already evolved into a full-spectrum technical support wing to architects and interior designers in Qatar and beyond. Here’s taking a look at how modern has reshaped 3D rendering in recent times.
3D Architectural Rendering: Traditional Vs Modern Approach
The conventional 3D creation workflow is a complex recipe in which images and animations are created with 3D imaging and rendering software applications. After that, the image or animation is rendered following extensive previewing. The process is complex as the components may or may not mix well together. We have found a major flaw in the traditional computer aided design workflow. In this process, rendering is done in the middle of the project lifecycle. This requires splitting the rendering into different elements for better change control. This also results in either project cost and duration increase or significant decrease in render quality.
Since our inception, we have challenged the traditional rendering workflow. We use sophisticated software tools, rich hardware configuration and fastest broadband so as to shift the ‘render squeeze, so much so that the workflow can be aligned with the requirements of the 3D architectural rendering job. We are using two disruptive technologies, namely cloud computing and GPU rendering, for bringing more flexibility and speed in the whole process of 3D interior design rendering or architectural rendering.
Cloud Computing: The Future of 3D Rendering Is Already Here
Unbiased and browser-dependent cloud driven rendering engines are gradually shifting the paradigms of the world of 3D architectural rendering. With rendering applications that create enough room for social interaction and collaboration between rendering artists at our disposal, we have now been able to design and develop renderings via a web and mobile ready platform. Switching to cloud helps immensely in delivering production-proven architectural rendering solutions to clients. Certainly, cloud rendering is the future of 3D rendering.
GPU rendering: Way to Go
3D artists know how important graphics cards are. However, a good GPU is mostly regarded as one basic resource for any learner or professional who has just started learning rendetaking or undertaking such projects professionally. We put heavy emphasis on using the computational power of high-end GPU during the final rendering process.
Autodesk is one of the leading software developers that leverage GPU throughout the rendering process. The interactive viewports they create give our 3D rendering artists the most interactive and most representative contexts to make quick decisions during the creative process. Also, GPU accelerated final rendering frame offers more speed to our artists and it becomes easier for us to make crucial decisions. Scalability is still a challenge and we should add here that the cost of reflections and refraction during the creative process soars up if we use GPU accelerated rendering. For this reason only, we use CPU rendering in these areas.
Disruptive 3D architectural technologies are blurring the lines between the traditional rendering and futuristic rendering approaches, methods and techniques. However, our focus has never shifted from client convenience and cost benefits. While speed and accuracy are two of the major concerns of our design artists, we also strive to keep the costs low so that project-specific workflows can be accommodated instead of profit margins.
We will talk about the technologies we use and much more at the 3rd Annual Future Interiors Qatar Conference 2016. See you soon!
