This page describes our work process step by step and gives essential information on the interaction between A3D Studio and the client:
We need the following information:
All relevant drawings of the project – site plans, landscape plans, floor plans, elevations, sections, furniture layout etc. We prefer .dwg format, but will also accept all major drawing and image formats, .pdf etc.
Note: By sending us digital drawings you will receive a lower price, since it takes less time to convert them to 3D.
All relevant colors, materials and site photos in color samples, photographs, web links with references, color tables etc.
Number of views desired
Desired perspective types (bird’s eye view, human eye’s view etc.) and view angles marked on a scheme or described
Note: Find out more about perspective types in our Help section.
Size requirements: pixels, size, height, width, aspect ratio, resolution. If none we automatically quote the following resolutions – HD 1920x1080px. , 2048x1536px. , 2xHD 3830x2160px. in 72dpi.
Special mood desired: season, time of the day, twilight, etc.
Styles and activities desired
Note: Information on styles and activities is available in our Help section.
Time limitations or desired target date if any
Budget limitations if any
For 3d animation we need the required duration of the video, a basic storyboard and highlights of the project.
Filling our order form is preferable, since it is most detailed and will allow us to prepare a more accurate quote for you.
Upon your request our team reviews the sent files and prepares a detailed quote within 6 hours. We may contact you for further information. The quote includes prices for different available options and the expected delivery date.
Once you approve the price and delivery terms we prepare a contract and accept 25% advance payment (All major credit cards, PayPal, etc. accepted) before starting the next step of the work process.
After the deposit is received our team starts to build the 3D model. Our models are built precisely to your drawings and can be used for volume studies, design corrections and reviewing defects. During the building process and after the model is complete we will send you low resolution images with your desired view angles for corrections and approval. At this step the site plan also has to be built and approved.
Note: All corrections of our errors and small changes in the design are fixed at no additional cost.
Note: All major changes in the design or corrections, caused by drawing inaccuracies are charged on per item basis.
After the 3D model is approved we add textures to the surfaces of the model according to your request and set up a light system to simulate photo-realism. At this stage we also add landscape objects, small objects and background image to complete the scene. Low resolution image previews will be sent to you for approval.
Note: All major changes in colors and textures are charged additionally.
After the textures and lighting are approved by you we render high-quality images and add some post-production effects to add more photo-realism or artistic look of the renderings.
The final product will be delivered to you by e-mail after full payment is received (All major credit cards, PayPal, etc. accepted). File transfer protocol sites can also be used if necessary.
Our standard is high-resolution .jpg file for still images and standard resolution .avi file for animations. If you desire another format, let us know.
The work process from Step 3 to Step 6 usually takes 4 days. For animations and interactive presentations we need several weeks. Additional time is required for more complicated or large projects with many views.
Tight schedules are given top priority. Quick and clear client response is essential for a successful on-time delivery.
