The Basics of 3d Graphics, 3d Modelling Services

Super Creative offers advice and support on 3d graphic design across the UK and explains the basics of our 3d modelling services.

3D Graphics a Basic guide

A basic guide on how 3D graphics are created, what is involved during the 3D creation:

1: Ideas developed

Ideas normally start off as a simple sketch, these can then be developed into 3D models. We can also use full 2D or 3D CAD data if available, 3D modelling does take time so if we can get hold of existing 3D data or 3D models this can help to reduce costs & help speed up the process.

2: 3D Model Created

Once the ideas have been created a 3D model can then be produced, a low polygon model maybe required if the final outcome is for an on-line interactive or for print a higher polygon or a full CAD model might be required.

3: Lighting Added

Once the 3D model is done 3D lighting is set-up to illuminate the scene. A whole range of lighting techniques can be used such as sunlight systems, global illumination & various spotlights and shadow techniques.

4: Cameras & Animation

Animation and cameras are also added to the scene if required, movies tend to be outputted at 30 frames per second. Animating and outputting movies can take up quite a lot of time to output. A 10 second movie has 300 frames @ 30 fps. So if each frame takes 1 minute to render the 10 second movie could take 1 computer 5 hours to output. To speed up this process we can send the 3D file to various computers to be rendered, this is normally called a render farm. This dramatically speeds up the process, for example using x8 computers to output the above would reduce the render time from 5 hours to 38 minutes.  This also enables us to carry on using the main computer while the other computers "Render Farm" are busy outputting the files.

5: Materials Created

There are never ending possibilities to create realistic materials which will bring the design to alive. Various effects and finishes can be added to make the materials look like glass, metal, wood, plastic, leather, car paint & many more.
