Q. What is architectural animation ?
Architectural animation is a virtual moving computerized movie of the project before its real execution . A computer-generated project, that can be a township, bunglow, villa, hospital, stadium, or any building can be created along with landscaping/pheripheral details and sometimes moving humans and automobile.
Unlike an architectural rendering, which is a mono image from a mono point of view, an architectural animation is a series of hundreds or even thousands of still images. When these images are gather together and played back they produce a movie effect.It must be noted that this movie although gives a real movie feel, is an artificially created movie by various softwares on computer. In Architectural animation, textures, colors ,realistic materials based on clients specifications are applied to the 3d models. Once the materials are added, realistic lighting conditions are simulated and a photorealistic image of the project is rendered. This can all be done before the project is actually built, giving designers and stakeholders a realistic view of the completed project. 3D architectural animation is highly user-friendly for the viewers since it provides an accurate realistic visual of the construction. Its gives a clear idea about the building from all angles along with a visual on core construction activities. Concepts of computer graphics and 3D animation help in creating highly realistic 3D architectural animation of any construction, and it gives a completely authentic idea of the finished product or building to the client.
Architectural animation is an effective and powerful tool for real estate developers, builders, architects, government contractors, land developers and urban planners to showcase their design concepts to their clients during presentations.
3D architectural animation is created using blueprints, floor plans, photographs, layout, design concepts, and technical specifications.The end result of Architectural animation is available to you on iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry,Windows, Mac, PC, or touchscreen.
