Product visualization, or product rendering, is the creation of photo real still images, videos or online 3d models from a proposed, prototype or existing product. For many industries this has almost completely replaced traditional product studio photography.

The main aim is to create powerful and compelling images and videos for marketing campaigns. Other uses are pre-production literature for funding rounds, pre-manufacture orders and kick starter product launches.

As a CGI visualisation studio we produce a full range of still images, videos and interactive 3d applications. Our 3d product marketing experience ranges from consumer electronics to industrial engineering to bathroom suites to perfume bottles.

What are the benefits of 3D Product Visualisation?

Versatility, consistency, hyper real images and incredible levels of detail are just a few of the benefits of 3d product visualization.

Here are a few reasons why Computer Generated Images are such an effective tool for retailers and marketing campaigns.

1- High quality photo locations. Create the perfect setting, environment and lighting to showcase your product.

A common marketing strategy is product placement to engage and influence potential buyers. With CGI your product can be placed in a whole range of high end apartments with the latest interior design or a mountain top at sunset or anywhere else you can imagine. The object is for the buyer to picture themselves in the scene with the product. It is subconsciously implied that the lifestyle in the image is linked to the purchase of the product.

Atmosphere and emotion and can be used to create a story for your product.  This will make your product and brand stand out in the noisy modern world of online advertising.

2- Easily re-shoot CGI images with consistency but without major expanse. If new branding is required or changes and updates to a product line even years in the future the sets, props, lighting, camera etc will be identical. We don’t even charge a restart fee.

3- Cut away views, exploded views and x-ray shots are easy effects for CGI product renderings. This helps the customer understand the product’s inner workings. As well as bringing the product to life there is the ability to emphasize key advantages over competitors’ products. For engineering customers isometric views are also easy to achieve.

4- Animations and special effects– If you need dynamic simulations of water, fire, smoke, explosions or collisions we have the latest CGI tools to explain and sell any aspect of your product. In addition we can grab your customers’ attention instantly and bring your product to life with high quality animation.

5- Highlight the smallest of details with hyper real high-quality 3D rendering. Allow the customer to examine the smallest details to showcase the high quality of your product.

For e-commerce and online  sales this level of detail can engage customers when there is no opportunity to view the physical product in person.

6- 360 degree panoramic views, online 3d models and 3d PDF documents. Offplan3d offers a whole line of advanced 3D visualization services for creating interactive and immersive content. From online 3d model viewers to complete VR environments, the range of uses and new media for CGI is increasing.

We only use the most tried and tested new online 3d technologies with the highest customer ease of use. Interactive Adobe 3D PDF documents are also useful for detailed and easy to understand parts guides and  manuals.
