The use of animation in architecture presentation and installation animation has gained popularity in recent years. More and more builders, architects, and interior designers are using 3D animation to give an architectural intro to their projects as it allows customers to visualize the design
Architectural animation is also known as architectural walk-throughs. It can be described as a form of a short movie. Basic software used for 3D modeling is computer-aided design software like 3D interior, 3ds Max, Autodesk Maya, etc. Most architecture animations include computer-generated building 3D models of interiors, landscaping and occasionally moving vehicles and people.
Architects use animations to show their designs and architectural drawings of Residential and Commercial Buildings, movie theatres, and Hospitals. Interior designers can use animation modeling to explain probable room designs, which include furnishings, color combinations, arrangement of lights, etc. Using 3D animation modeling and rendering helps the clients to visualize the real structures of the project.
The major question arises here is Why is it important to Use Architectural Animation?
Architects, builders, and interior designers majorly prefer using animation as they are very helpful in giving a proper idea to the customer about the project being made and how will it look after completion. Unlike 2D architectural drawing, architecture animation helps clients view physical structure more clearly from various angles through the visual displays of the entire building including landscape projects, exteriors, and interiors.
An increasing number of architecture firms like to use animation in their dealings, this has brought 3D animation highly in demand. But still, there are various small firms that are not able to deliver architecture animation because it requires an experienced trained team and the process is expensive and various refined software is required to create many images and combine them into a sequence.
There are several benefits to using 3D Animations
Helps in presenting the project in detail:-
As an architect, we all know that a lot of detailing is required while creating a design. Without the use of 3D animations, it becomes difficult to show these details to the clients. Even the smallest detail will bring the change and it’s possible with 3D animations.
Give visual Ideas Before they’re complete:-
A 3D rendering helps to imagine ideas before they’re made concrete. There are hundreds of amazing ideas for designs, but when we start designing most of the time only two or three ideas get used. This happens quite often. Also if one can view the ideas before the final product one can bring necessary changes.
Once the 3D animated structure is made it allows the client and the team to interact and discuss possible changes that might be needed. The client can roam through the building looking at every corner and turn, can walk through doors, and can experience the project as if they are in it. The clients usually encourage this process as they can now see the picture clearly
Permits Cost-Effective Changes:-
Many times changes are required during or after the final product. Any problems or defects can be noticed beforehand and then mended in a cost-effective manner which will require only a few clicks to change. After all the benefits now we learn what all we need to go ahead and create a 3d Animation.
Here’s the list of things that are needed-
Animation Rendering Software
Before creating realistic 3D animations, one will need to use rendering software. This 3D rendering software brings the products to life. Because 3D rendering has become so popular due to its many benefits, there are several different rendering software available.
2D Animation Construction Plans
Before sitting with a dedicated team of designers who are there to create the 3D renderings, one should always have a 2D construction plan as a concrete basis for the project. Once the 2D drawings and blueprints are created, they can then be submitted to be transformed into 3D
