1. ANALYSIS OF THE INITIAL SITUATION
In the first step, we first take a closer look at your existing data.
2. Delivery of CAD data
Normally, you already have CAD data, which you then supply to us in the next step. If you do not have CAD data, we will model them for you.
3. Data conversion
The CAD data must be converted to another format so that the Digital Content Creation Software (DCC) can handle the data. DCC software are programs that can be used to create multimedia content. Once the data from the CAD program has been transferred to the 3D content software, the work of our CG artists begins.
4. Sorting the data
The so-called scene tree reflects the structure and hierarchy of the data set. When this is sorted, the objects are assigned materials. Since the objects of the CAD data are mostly assigned many different colors in order to be able to distinguish them in the design, the objects must be provided with material properties (e.g. color, reflection, transparency) in the DCC software.
5. Scene setup
Once the so-called shading is complete, the scene is set up with camera and lights. This works similar to a real photo studio. You place a camera and set up the lights so that the product looks exciting and all the shapes and contours are represented comprehensibly.
The final step of the 3D artist is rendering. Rendering calculates a 2D image from the 3D scene with camera, lighting and materiality.
7. Final editing
After the image has been calculated, the 3D artist's work is usually done. The CGI image is passed to the compositing artist, who puts the final touches on the image using a 2D program such as Photoshop.
8. Delivery to the customer
At the end, the generated CGI image is handed over to the customer, who can use it in a variety of ways. As an image on the website, in print media or for posters at trade fairs. In addition to this workflow, further media can be developed. An animation based on this prepared data can breathe life into the product.
