What is a 3D architectural walkthrough?
A 3D architectural walkthrough video is a short digital movie showcasing the future look of a building that is not constructed yet. In such a CG video, a camera “flies” around and/or through the future property.
Why not choose CG images instead of a 3D walkthrough?
3D animation is not necessary to use for every project, and static CGI shots get the job done in most cases. However, to leave a lasting impression and increase the odds of a successful presentation, CG architectural walkthrough video is a perfect tool.
What are the best ways to enhance an architectural presentation?
If an architect has enough budget for it, a presentation can be enhanced with a 3D animation or even with augmented or virtual reality. These tools provide a life-like experience and immerse the viewers.
How long does it take to create a 3D architectural walkthrough video?
The length of production depends on several factors: team size, length of an animation, design complexity and amount of unique 3D assets to be used. Relatively simple projects can be accomplished in a few weeks. While completing more complicated ones may require more than a month of work.
