“101 Erica’s Lane House” – Artwork by The Craft, using SketchUp, 3ds Max, Corona Renderer, and Laubwerk Plants Kits.

Laubwerk’s 3D foliage assets are some of our favorites. The smart asset type and the plugin to use it is a powerful one! Less intensive on viewport performance, while allowing for fast variations, seasonal control, and level of detail for far-away trees and shrubs. For us, the fact we can use the same assets inside SketchUp is a BIG PLUS!

The GOLD STANDARD of HDRI’s for Architectural Visualization by Peter Guthrie. A growing collection of 360 degrees panoramic high dynamic range (HDR) sky maps for use in all types of CG rendering. Carefully selected to be useful as well as beautiful.

All skies have now updated to v5 which feature the following improvements that have been made over the years :

  • Horizon clutter cleaned up (Buildings, Cranes and other things on the skyline).
  • Backplates in RAW format added (dng).
  • Corrected sun intensities to be more realistic as it is not possible to shoot a hdr and capture the full dynamic range of the sun.
  • Resolutions have increased over the years, from 8k, to 10k and lately 14k.
  • v5 has been a significant update to calibrate the brightness of the hdr files to the correct photographic exposure value.

LAYAMA by MOTIVA CG Art & Technology

CREATE VR EXPERIENCES LIKE NO OTHER.

Everyone loves VR visualizations, but unfortunately, they have a couple of major drawbacks:

  • You cannot visualize VR experiences if you don’t have a high-end computer, and even if you do have one, your clients may not. Also, you won’t be able to access them out of the office and so on.
  • Creating this kind of project is difficult and costly, you need to transform the meshes to low-poly and unwrap them, change the materials to be compatible with the real-time engine and after all that, you still probably won’t get the same quality.

In brief, real-time is expensive and not portable at all, that’s why lots of people still use old fashioned 360 tours. They are cheap, lightweight and they retain the maximum quality you can achieve.

Layama closes that gap between 360s and VR by transforming your current 3D projects to a pseudo-VR webpage that allows you to navigate your scenes, share your concepts, and visualize them in high quality everywhere.
