Visualization principles

The constant flow of information and a rapid development of various technologies have caused the appearance of 3D visualization, as a separate sphere of activity. The visualization is a real art. One can compare the visualization professionals to the masters, creating hyper realistic images.

Visualization – 3 main principles

The goal of visualization lies at the creation of realistic object, based on the existing material (photos, drawings etc.). There are 3 rules helping to solve this complex task:

  • The efficient way to create model analogous photo lies at optimum camera settings, for exposition. The visualization principle is based on human anatomic traits. The sharpness adjustment level will help to get the required accuracy. At the same time, it will help to distract attention from problematic zones and make visual fraud: the eye will perceive 3D space, not the 2D one;
  • The real units and things are far from being perfect. Any surface has drawbacks and uneven spots. This is an important nuance one has to pay attention to. Small details and elements create realistic atmosphere and old textures look alive;
  • The visualization has advantages, when using softly deemed light. The most important matter is a correct disposal of light sources having paid attention to shadows location.

The transparent surfaces visualization peculiarities

The water surface, glass and other transparent surfaces realistic visualization is an efficient way to create impressionable 3D object. Most existing algorhythms are overcomplicated and require the usage of specific equipment and devices.
Some years ago the principles of water visualization had been based on the idea, stating that water surface is flat. Relief structures created non-quality illusion. Such way is useful for the visualization of small lakes.

Modern visualizers often use the relief tops animation, when creating big basins, thin tissues and glass. If it goes about water, a great attention should be paid to lighting and reflection of other units in exposition.

Each well-developed unit will help to create idealistic visualization. Remember that chaos and accurate surrounding selection makes the unit to be realistic.
