How much does a still image / Rendering cost and who influences the price. Part 1/2

Updated: May 3


TWO MAIN FACTORS THAT PERFORM 3D CALCULATION.


1.) WORK

The main cost of a 3D rendering is the work required. There are 3 people who are generally involved in a 3D rendering project

Project manager

3D artist

Post Processing / Photoshop Artist

By far, the biggest component of the cost of labor is the 3D artist, so we will focus primarily on their role.


 


What does the 3D artist do in the 3D process?

To create an interpretation, a 3D artist must:


1. Understand customers' plans and vision.

2. Create the template.

3. Pattern texture.

4. Configure the lighting.

5. Room configuration.



CDOES IT INCREASE THE LABOR COSTS OF 3D ARTISTS?


The work involved in a 3D rendering is not as straightforward as we might think. Skilled 3D artists can create what may appear to be an extremely detailed scene in a very short period of time using the tools at their disposal. On the other hand, seemingly simple scenes could take much longer.


For example, a large and highly accurate aerial image of a forest could be created very quickly using public topographic data and a series of automated processes. However, it could take several days or weeks to model a single piece of equipment according to exact standards, such as an electronic device with complex circuits and complex cables.


In many cases, the process can be speeded up using items from our library, such as furniture, cars, people, and finishes. The main factors affecting the workforce are the level of detail and the number of unique elements required.

 


POSITION PROCESSING LABOR COSTS FOR 3D LIFTING.


Once the 3D rendering has calculated most of the studios, the Photoshop artist / designer will touch the image. This can be a minor or major part of the process. Some studios choose to do a very basic scene, then they need to detail in Photoshop. We take a more minimal approach to post-processing. A studio might not do post-processing, but there are almost always some color changes or touch ups needed.






2.) RENDERING TIME

 

Playback time is the amount of time it takes to create a computer image. This is directly related to how realistic the image is and how much detail you need. However, there are many tricks to create details without adding much playback time.


As a consumer, you don't have to worry too much about playback time: this is the business of the rendering company! We provide the information below to help you understand why some projects cost more and take longer, then others.


 

WHAT INCREASES RENDERING TIME?


Depending on the rendering software, the number of light sources can sometimes greatly affect the playback time - so outdoor scenes can do quite quickly. Another factor is the detail of the scene. The term in the industry for this is poly-count, which refers to the number of polygons used to model the scene.



A common element that increases the details and therefore the playback time is the foreground vegetation, the background vegetation is generally optimized with a technique of using billboards or sprites click here to find out more. In addition, curved surfaces tend to require much more detail.




 

REDUCTION OF RENDERING TIME


The biggest thing you can do to reduce playback time is reduce the number of revisions required by providing detailed plans and specific feedback. Each time you need a review, some or all of the images need to be resized. If you need fewer revisions, you will need less playback time. This can save you money in the long run - at RealSpace, in general, prices are lower for returning customers, who we know can work efficiently.
