Buildings, rooms and high rise condominiums were originally constructed using paper and blueprints. They were presented the same way to a degree of varying results. These all changed when animation was integrated not only in presenting the design but also building the floor plan. And we all have to thank the animation techniques, software and technology that were conceived in creating some of Hollywood’s most famous animated features.
Movies such as Disney/Pixar’s Up, The Incredibles, Meet the Robinsons, Finding Nemo and Wall-E has left such an indelible mark particularly to kids and has upped the ante with regards to the quality of the workmanship of these feature films and how films are produced. These changes and improvements in the way these films have been produced have bled out into the professional world of animation.
Improvements in the realm of 3D renderings and photo-realistic images have also paved the way for some of the best presentations and 3D walkthroughs used in purposes outside of animation. Some companies such as 3Dwalkthroughs.com have also guaranteed positive results for businesses that have taken advantage of it. The company specifically deals with architecture and creates stylish 3D walkthroughs customized to fit any client’s specification. The company’s services is perfect for architects, real estate agents, home builders and property managers just to name a few. They also offer 2 dimensional or 3 dimensional renderings of projects and even easy to use website tools for realtors. Some of the tools used in this type of industry were conceived out of necessity, the necessity to create and improve whatever animation style or animation quality that is currently available. This necessity was the same need which forced James Cameron to forgo directing other movies and develop the necessary technology needed in creating the blue skinned Na’vi in his massively popular “Avatar” movie. In essence, animation is no longer limited to entertainment. It can be used as a very powerful tool to deliver the message or to show people what needs to be seen or to deliver a specific idea or thought.
