House Illustrations for East Midlands Development, Using OTOY OctaneRender

Categories: 3D CGI, Architectural Visualisation - Tags: , , , , , ,

We’ve finally been given the chance to try out OctaneRender from OTOY, with house illustrations for a regular client. It truly is so much fun to tinker with colours, textures and lighting in real time!

We can take your CAD files, or drawings, and turn them into beautiful illustrations in a few days, and with the new renderer it’s even quicker to make a change if needed!

And not forgetting all of this can also be animated if needed, or turned into 360 immersive panoramics to view using your google glasses, smart phone, tablet or desktop. The next step is real time virtual walk-throughs – watch this space!

The Brief

A new client, but a company we have known of for a while, kindly approached us to produce a business park CGI for Bradgate Park View, a new commercial building in a development just south of Chellaston, Derby. It was great to finally have the opportunity to work with them!

Use of Skype

The brief was to produce an image that was suitable for double page print, and would also be used on the website. With this particular project we used Skype’s video conferencing and screen sharing capabilities to great effect. Our rendering software has a realtime preview, which is ridiculously close to the final image we produce. Using Skype, we were able to share our screens with the client, and show them in real time their final image. If they asked for the shadows cast through the trees to the right to be a little lower on the building, we could make the change and they instantly could see the effect on the final image. We still haven’t met them, which is a shame as they were a lovely bunch to work for, but the important thing – the image they wanted – was delivered on time.

The business park CGI was produced to a resolution suitable for a site hoarding board – large. The great thing about our images is we put a great amount of detail in to them – individual blades of grass, daisies, birds flying. As the image is blown up, much of this detail becomes more apparent and adds to the perceived quality of the development. Our lighting software allows us, if a developer wishes, to recreate the correct colours and shadows for a particular development, anywhere in the world. Attention to detail is an idiom we stand by, and it’s fun to do!

Residential Development CGIs

I’ve said it before, and it never gets jaded, but we love house visuals as we’re privileged to view someone’s future home before it’s built. It’s a lovely feeling knowing that someone will be stepping through the real door one day.

We were tasked with producing an advertising image for a new commercial development in Derbyshire.

CGI Housing Images for Westerman Homes

This is a quick showcase of CGI housing images produced for our client, of house types for one of their new developments.

Cape Verde Revisited

We’ve completed three projects to date for developments on Cape Verde. This project was a week turnaround revisit for one of those developments, currently being built by the Resort Group. Additional props were added to the existing images we’d produced, and extra splashes of colour, ready for the launch of their new brochure in the New Year.

We’re lucky to be called on for repeat work from clients, and we hope it’s because they feel they’re getting a good job for a fair price (sounds a bit Delboy but there you go). This project was one such project – a unique residential development in Derbyshire which as ever, was fun to work on 🙂

Another project where albino igil carried out the CGI for the front cover and the graphic design for the brochure. Have we told you we can juggle as well?

We’re so wasted.

House Makeover – Brittania Court

At the time of visiting this existing development you could be forgiven for thinking that they were a bit on the ugly side – a 1970’s/80’s set of apartments next to the River Derwent in Derby. But having worked with the architect in charge of the makeover I have to say we’ve fallen in love with these apartments. They are definitely unique and will look fantastic when finished!

Another client but the same group of islands. albino igil were brought in to help finish this project by another company, who supplied us the house models and the island. Our remit was to finish texturing and lighting the project, populate the environment and produce the final animations. We also needed to model the interiors and pop some animations out of those as well.  There’s nothing better than staring at sunny pictures all day in the middle of March…
