Because of the rapid speed of evolution for the building design and construction industry, many businesses have begun to improve their technology in order to be able to gain a headstart against their competition.
Today, fully modeled 3D renderings are one of the latest technologies that are widely used in industries including architectural, real estate and construction firms. These are basically defined as a computerized process which changes a digital 3D model turned into a rendered image.
These 3D renderings might follow 3D floor plans or even the regular floo plans and blue prints. They would also contain geometric information, texture information, ambient lighting and surroundings and even shade details.
All 3D renderings can be used for various areas and buildings including those for residential, commercial, industrial and institutional. There will also be a high level of customization including the potential to add effects such as sunlight or artificial light and even shadows.
Some of the softwares that are required in producing such great 3D renders would most likely include stuff like 3D Max 9, Cap Studio 3.2, Giza 2006, AutoCAD 2007 and even Photoshop CS3.

3D is slowly setting the creative world on fire thanks to its many uses and applications in almost all types of fields, businesses and industries. While decades ago 3D animation and other similar realms might have been frowned upon, these days, it’s 3D that actually sets all the benchmarks.
If we’ve learned anything from watching tons of movies the past few years, its that 3D animation, 3D renderings and even believe it or not, 3D walkthroughs have been instrumental to the rise of the 3D graphics industry.
With 3D, regardless if its for 3D walkthroughs or 3D renderings, life and every little detail gets captured digitally.
The industry has also moved past very basic softwares and has evolved into something more technical yet fun. More and more people are starting to both earn money professionally with the help of 3D. Even companies like Dreamworks and Pixar have become giants in the field because of their craft. The demand has 3D graphic designers and 3D animators
Architecture has also benefited a lot from the advent of 3D technology. 3D technology has become the new age lifeblood for a lot of architectural firms not only in North America but for the rest of the world. These firms and real estate companies have now learned to effectively utilize and use various materials such as the 3D walkthroughs, 3D renderings, 3D floor plans and other services to help hit the spot when in comes to selling homes or buildings.
Now that the point has been hammered, its about time to start investing in great looking 3D materials from the one and only 3Dwalkthroughs.com

The entertainment industry has been thoroughly blessed with a lot of things that can be later used by other industries such as real estate and architectural industries that basically deal with building homes and creating brighter households for families not only locally, but around the world.
3D particularly 3D renders have slowly become staples in the world of architecture and real estate. It is no longer placed in a world for entertainment, spotlights and projectors but instead in a world for scaffoldings, floor plans and blue prints.
And with Hollywood and the rest of the entertainment industry abuzz once more by the resurgence of the 4D entertainment, its time to differentiate and list the strong and weak points between a 3D rendering or film with its younger brother, 4D cinema experience.
So what is 3D, 3D or 3 dimensional is an optical technique where two images are projected side by side, one for each eye and then played in two different cameras which are slightly tilted away from each other. This creates the illusion in our eyes that the objects that we see are actually coming out of the screen rather than just staying flat on the silverscreen. 3D is also being used in more common ways such as through 3D renderings and 3D floor plans which is used primarily for architectural purposes.
4D or 4 dimension gets a new boost thanks in part to the recent success of 3D movies. Now it has taken several steps out of the usual spots like theme parks and malls and is slowly making its way towards other mediums. Nowadays, 3D renders such as the one pictured at the bottom:
Can be turned into a fancy looking 4D presentation complete with physical motion coming from various elements within either the chair where the person or viewer is sitting or from outside.

There are currently millions upon millions of digital renders and images flooding the Internet today. And with such there are only a couple of things that one should realize in order to say if the 3D rendering that they are looking at should really fall under the classification of a nice 3d image or just a work of an amateur.
Here are some of the things that you can use to spot a good render from a sea of hopefuls…
As a basis, let us use this fine image of the 3D floor plan on top as the reference for the 3D render.
When looking for a great looking 3D render, always check for the quality. This means you may have to take a very close look at the material, carefully scrutinizing each and every part of the image..
Another way to find out if the image is a great render is by examinig the quality and the size of the digital image.

3D renderings have flourished in recent times thanks to having more and more people starting to practice and appreciate the art of 3D rendering.
Exquisite looking 3d renders should have the best looking images and should have crisp, sharp pixels on them. You will know that a 3D render would look inferior and feel inferior if, upon careful scrutiny and zooming, the pixels start to break and the image is no longer perfect.
A really great looking 3D rendering, be it architectural renders or even artistic renders should also exhibit a certain appeal. It should be eye-popping and should really catch the attention of the viewer not only because of the high definition components within the image but also because of the feel and look of the render.

Having a beautiful 3D rendering of an image will always be good for any type of business.
Let’s dissect what makes a 3D render stand out from other types of image files that are being used in the market right now.
3D renderings are high resolution in nature and utilize lots of pixels in order to show lush and eye-popping images.
3D renders are also great for high impact presentations. Since they were created digitally, renders are generally easy to manipulate or edit to fit to give out the perfect image or look.

2010 has proven to us, as the movie going public, that high end and gorgeous 3D renderings and 3D graphics don’t necessarily mean great movies.
Even producers themselves are expressing their disdain for some of the works that Hollywood has produced in a couple of years.
Movies such as the 3D renderings heavy Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen or the critically panned X-Men Origins Wolverine might have earned a lot of money in terms of ticket sales but it did not deliver what fans really wanted to see or hear.
But what should really weigh heavy in the minds of movie makers right now is the fact that people arent paying good money just to see eye popping special effects. People would want to see a good movie with a great plot and character development and a great production value to booth. It’s not really purely about eye candy.
Movies are after all done to tell a story not just showcase high end explosions and effects.

Seeing what a car looks like before it even hits the production line can save not only thousands of dollars but also save tons of work hours for a car manufacturing companies. The idea of having a fully realized and fully stylized car in the form of a lush 3d rendering has been adapted and embraced by both the European and Asian car manufacturers in producing their top of the line cars.
In the first place 3D renderings have been the pit stop of car companies. It comes after the initial and final design in the drawing board and comes just before it begins its tour on the production line. This has been done for years now with no signs of stopping and changing; on the contrary many car designers have come to rely on 3D renderings as a way to improve future car designs. From massive trucks to the simple and earth friend hybrid cars that can be spotted on the streets, just about every automobiles in production have used 3D renderings.
It’s amazing to think how something that can be seen from a computer monitor to become something as cool or as futuristic looking as automobiles.

Painting as an art has thrived for centuries now with no sign of stopping or declining. Talk a walk along scenic Paris or New York and you can still see people painting the River Seine or the busy Manhattan cityscape.
But with the continuous improvement in the way we develop art and technology; new forms have emerged from the obscurity in the form of digital artists and their 3D renderings.
But what exactly is a 3D rendering and how is this becoming a force that may one day rival the traditional line art or painting? 3D rendering is a 3D graphics process of automatically converting 3D wire frame models into a 2D image with hints of 3D photorealistic effects using a PC or other computers.
3D renderings can be done in two ways. Either through real time or non-real time; interactive mediums fall under the category of real time 3d renders with calculations displayed at speeds of 20 – 120 frames per second. Feature films and videos are on the other hand are categorized as non-real time 3D renderings.
3D renders have become the latest canvass for the modern day artist because it has everything an artist would look for and need in their artwork. The artworks can be done and reproduced in high resolution or low resolution, they can easily be shared with other people through the use of the Internet and they can also be edited and changed on the fly.
The new age digital artists have it all made for them whether they like it or not. For those that have easily embraced it, renders can be improved and honed while non believers can experiment and try to get a feel of the whole idea and concept.

Academy Award winning director James Cameron has as of late become the face of change and innovation in the world of animation thanks to his work in the film “Avatar”. Cameron’s movie about an adventure of a paralyzed former marine who journeys to the world of Pandora to help out in evacuating the natives called Na’vi.
Cameron’s Avatar not only garnered critical and commercial success but also earned millions in box office earnings. He is currently developing material for the next installment of the movie, which he plans on turning into a trilogy.
Aside from the success, Avatar also pushed the boundaries of animation and computer technology. Cameron originally planned to direct and craft the movie after directing “Titanic” but was faced with dealing with technology not suitable for the movie. He patiently devoted his time writing and producing documentaries while waiting for the perfect time to bring about Avatar to the world. By 2007, Cameron had finally begun preliminary shooting for the film which starred Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana.
Along the way, James Cameron developed various technologies for shooting virtual characters, or characters that were only present in a computer. He also developed the ideas behind the principles of 5D technology which is gearing up to become the future face of how we view movies or television.
Changing and improving is the true nature of the animation industry, let alone the entire business. Companies such as 3Dwalkthroughs.com and Animation-1 have just been doing the same for architects, real estate brokers and home builders. Both companies have partnered to provide customized 3D interactive walkthroughs, 3D renderings and even 2D or 3D floor plans that will help boost and enliven presentations and floor plans.
