Reality behind the renders

A recent project completed for one of our long-standing clients saw our Project Management team seamlessly coordinate the logistics of our CGI team, Interior stylists, Models, Photographic studio team and post production. The result is a set of 14 images that are perfect for brochure and social media content.

Our stylist worked directly with Fabric Box marketing team to understand the design concepts behind their fabric designs and product range. Together they designed the unique environments with our team making sure the interior design trends, the CG architectural detailing and propping supported their product; ensuring the focus is on the contemporary blind designs.

The second phase of the project was to select and photograph models in our in-house photographic studio. These were then edited together by our post production specialists, resulting in ultra-real CGI images. Shooting models interacting with CGI props can be a technical challenge. As our production team strive for photoreal images they ensured the technique was perfected!

These images are perfect for marketing content, adding more value to our client who can use the renders for brochure, online and social media. Our clients have also ‘future proofed’ their shots by using CGI our CG artists can revisit at any time easily updating the images when the latest product ranges are released passing the saving back to our clients.

Trending-Terrazzo Tactile Tones

Last year we saw this trend coming… and for our clients who have a stylish, trend led eye we’ve been able to feature elements of Terrazzo textures and replicate the playful tones with shades through wall colours, props and surfaces.

Our favourite terrazzo sample at the office inspired our own Creative Meeting Room and influenced one of our latest photography shots. We used the soft and playful mixed hues for a fresh and distinctive set design, mixing greens and pinks.

Solid Surfaces

Here the custom table features a more muted terrazzo which is made from recycled materials. This is another draw to using the sustainable surface, a key value to the Set Visions design team.

There’s plenty of amazing terrazzo worktops and in recent design shows we’ve seen some stunning kitchens showing off with it. Here we used a matt pastel kitchen fascia for that cool contemporary look.

Fabrics and colour palette

We have seen plenty coming through in the last year with terrazzo pattern prints on fabric now. Here we upholstered a foot stool with the print.

When working with the terrazzo of choice it’s a good idea to try paint samples and fabric samples out against the texture to see how the colours work as a group. Here we demonstrated balance and tone though texture and composition.

Total Chaos Conference

As a market leader in Photorealistic CGI, Set Visions is no stranger to Total Chaos. The Vray 3D rendering software is renowned within the industry allowing users to pretty much visualise anything! The recent convention attracted global delegates including our own home grown, Technical Manager, Danny Austin. The diverse programme kept Danny immersed in VR and the architecture industry, with V Ray tools allowing us to sharpen the 3D modelling process and walkthroughs.

Our very own, rather flabbergasted, Danny had the opportunity to meet some of the heroes of the industry and scooping the top prize in the Rendering Challenge; Chaos Group setup a selection of content and challenged the delegates to plan, compose and render visuals within in 30 minutes.

The technology advances were exceptionally interesting to learn more about, but one thing certainly caught my attention - how maintaining a balance between work and life was the key to succeeding in the long-term without burning out.

I drew parallels to that and appreciated the excellent environment that I work in. The Set Visions team work together for a single goal and help each other when help is needed. This is not the case everywhere and appreciate that with a fresh perspective. I think it is the reason that creativity can co-exist with commerce in a competitive industry.
