Rendering process

Our straightforward tried & tested workflow allows us to offer a 3D design service suitable for all types of clients, from single building developers and interior designers up to housing associations and property development companies.

To start the work, we need:

Architectural drawings (CAD)

Or architectural 3d model if available (3ds Max, SketchUp, Revit, Rhino, ArchiCAD, etc.)

Materials and furniture selection

Mood boards

Location photos or Google Maps link for context information

Inspiration images

The required cameras views

 

Time of day

 

Expected turnout time

Process

Phase 1

Using the information you’ve provided we create the 3D models and set up multiple viewpoints for you to choose from. Drafts are sent through and you are required to confirm the structures, joints, facade materials, view angle, hardscape, etc..

This process is repeated until the models and view angles are all correct. Please note that major changes in design might generate extra fees according to its complexity.

Phase 2

Once the models and view angles are confirmed, we then move forward to incorporate the details of your design and ideas including materials, lighting, landscape, general mood and postwork into the image.

Postwork includes rendering high-res images, retouching them in Photoshop, adding details such as streets, sidewalks, people, greenery, cars, sky, lighting, outdoor settings, activities, etc. This process is repeated until you are happy with your final choices.

Phase 3

We usually output the final images as high quality .jpg files at a resolution of 3200 pixels across.

If you plan to print super high-resolution banner just let us know at the beginning.

We offer 3 standard resolution options for animations which are 720p, 1080p, and 4K.

We mostly recommended 1080p because of its highest cost-performance.

Besides the standard resolutions, we also offer customized resolutions for special size screens such as ring screen.

Important note

Usually, we have a pretty tight schedule, so please let us know about your deadline at the beginning. 

It generally takes 2-3 weeks to create 1 minute of high-quality video and around 5-7 days for 2-3 images.

We are Atelier Aida, a boutique, multidisciplinary architectural visualisation studio located in South West London, delivering photo-realistic 3d renderings and animations worldwide.

Our team of highly skilled and creative Architects and Cg Artists have over twenty years of experience working with a range of clients worldwide.
