Perspectives are not automatically created by software. We are always called upon at the end of a 3D project to retouch and add magical finishing touches. Most times the end result of a 3D perspective is in fact more a ‘photo montage artist impression’ instead of simply a rendered CGI (Computer Graphics Image).
In some cases we are required from the outset to use imagination, artistic vision and artwork skills to recreate an artist impression photomontage image. We achieve this with usually just photographic reference (in other words, no computer assisted 3D imageing). Therefore no 3D model nor 3D software is used. Instead we make a ‘composite image’ by cutting and pasting, rearranging and overlapping many photographs into a new image. The resulting composite image appears as a seamless photographic image. This suits certain projects better than others. Ultimately it’s our artistic skill that is used to create this type of photomontage.
In other cases, in fact we do employ these considerable skills on computer generated images (CGI).
Here we combine 3D images with actual photographs of the site. That’s where our photomontage skills bring the image to life! This results in a truly impressive ‘photo montage artist impression’ complete with realistic 3D and photography background, or foreground imagery.
Below are some examples of ‘before and after’ photomontage artist impression.
