THE PROCESS

Because every project is unique…

…once we start production, we want to make it as easy as possible for you. Every client has different needs and priorities; we establish what these are from the very start and manage your project accordingly. The more detail we have from you at the beginning, the better. During the production of your CGIs we may discover small discrepancies in the plans; the quicker you can respond with clarifications the quicker we will get your final images to you. We are keen to create exactly the images you need – those that will best sell your property.

Animations

1. Storyboard and camera angles

Your account manager will discuss your needs with you and then create a storyboard with our lead artist, this will establish the main views, angles and sweeps of the cameras before the modelling process begins.

2. Greyscale stills

Once the modelling is complete, you will receive key images in greyscale moving you along the various camera paths to check for angles and views. Any changes you require will be made in greyscale before texturing is applied at the next stage.

3. Greyscale animatic

Following the stills sign off, we will put together an animatic in greyscale. This is a preliminary version of your animation for technical checks and doesn’t include any shadowing, texturing or colours.

4. Low resolution keyframes

Once the animatic is signed off, we will create a run of low resolution keyframes with the texturing applied. Flicking through these shots at speed like the example below will give a sense of how the final animation will look. Once you’re completely happy, we move on to the final phase.

5. Final animation

The final stage is to deliver your high-resolution animation, but first we have to render all the thousands of frames which make up your animation, which takes a little while. Once the individual images have been rendered, we complete the post-production work on them – adjusting the hues, brightness, contrast etc before including your opening and ending branding scenes along with any wording that you require. Music sequences will also be added at this stage if they are part of the package.
