Gainsborough Baths

Gainsborough CGI catalogue thumbnail

Our bathroom CGI visualisation service produced several brochure images of care home assisted bathing. The 3d model  bathroom set we built had to accurately reflect the clinical regulations in place while also being contemporary and show casing the bath in a attractive light. The images in the gallery below show how the final CGI visualisation image was arrived at.

South Devon CGI renderings

house thumbnail
south devon CGI drone images

Our brief for this South Devon CGI rendering project was to produce 8 high resolution images. These images from the two new build homes were to be used for estate agent publicity literature.

The 360 degree images or photosheres shown below where an added bonus for the client. They work well for tight internal spaces, such as bathrooms. They solve the problem of a single image not capturing the whole room.

For really immersive VR experience we recommend viewing via Facebook on a smart phone or tablet. This allows the user to simply aim the device where they want to look.

Drone footage was supplied to us for adding the CGI house models. Unfortunately the drone video was not only expensive but also unusable which is the main reason we now use our own in-house drone equipment.

There is quite a lot of knowledge required to producing good drone footage for CGI. Just buying expensive equipment and software isn’t going to work.

We actually understand how the software works, it’s requirements and limitations. If in doubt please ask our advice.

An interactive WebGL model viewer is shown below. This allows the user to fully interact with the 3d model of the bungalow.

This was an unfinished test (from 2015) with lighting but no materials added. The technology has moved on quite a bit in the meantime so please ask us about the latest developments in VR and online 3D viewers.

Van Guard manufacturing

shelf CAD image

There were multiple jobs under discussion for this large manufacturing client. The first was for a 7 meter wide exhibition backdrop. A variety of floor surface materials were tried out as well as different location options. There were also catalogue CGI images, interactive 3d models and videos to follow (2016).

[layerslider id="11"]

The interactive 3d model below was built for the client from scratch. The 3d model we built is around 10 times faster to load and interact than the original CAD model. Also  photo-real lighting is ‘baked’ into the model along with using ‘real time’ lighting and reflections. This allows quick and efficient interaction with any users device.

The interactive 3d model below was built to demonstrate how we could solve the clients marketing problem. The shelving units inside a small van interior would be very difficult to convey to a customer using photography or video. A 180 degree ‘fish-eye’ lens on a camera would have a lot of distortion. Similarly using a video camera and rotating 360 degrees would lead to motion sickness (unless done very slowly, which would lose the viewers’ attention).

We achieved this by making an interactive 3d model which the customer can fully navigate in 3d space. We also made the van interior only visible from one side.

iPhone App- Lightbox

CGI graphics produced for an iPhone App

These CGI images were created by Offplan3d around 12 years ago for an iPhone app. The app allowed the user to build their own custom stage lighting rig. The user could then see the lights reacting to music with a sound to light controller.

All the Computer Generated Images shown here are renders from the 3D models that we built from photographs and sketches. The app images had to produced as 2d so that they could slot together correctly. However you can see from the extra publicity render to shown at the bottom that the models were all 3d objects.

We also produce CGI product still images or packshots. Please click here for more  information on our CGI service prices

Nextbase Mirror dashcam

dashcam marketing image packshot

A marketing video to explain and sell a new dashcam from 2017 (not in production at the time of video creation).

This was shown in-store on Point Of Sale display stands and online (via the manufacturer, Nextbase, and various retailer websites e.g Halfords, Ebay).

We have produced over thirty product videos for Nextbase and their associated brands. This has covered a range of consumer electronics from Internet radios to waterproof TV’s to in-car DVD players to dash-cams.

These videos have been so successful that the UK distributor has resold them internationally. We have currently reproduced these videos in three other languages. We have also supplied videos direct to the Chinese manufacturing company.

Nextbase Touch Tablet product video

Car Tablet and headrest mount product video

We created this product marketing movie for an Android Tablet with in-car headrest mount and wireless headphone transmitter. The video was shown at the product launch at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) and it’s European equivalent IFA. At the time of producing this video the product was at  the pre-production stage. We created the images from the product CAD file and adding this to a car interior 3d model that we created.

The video was shown on a large projected video display on the Nextbase exhibition trade stand.

We had previously produced exhibition displays running over five different but synchronized displays.

Apart from car tablet marketing videos we produce a wide range of other product marketing videos.

United Nations and Gower College Videos

2d animation whiteboard image

This video was commissioned by United Nations to promote the Rights of the Child in Welsh schools. The hand drawn video style was first made popular around 2011 by the Royal Society of the Arts via their series of RSA Animate video lectures.

Both a Welsh and English language version of this video were produced. We have also produce videos in other languages for our international clients.

We have produced various other hand drawn videos using different techniques and styles.

The UN video was so successful that we were asked by Gower College to produce a similar video. The purpose of this video was to explain the rules and workings of the college to new students. At almost 8 minutes long this could have easily have lost the viewers attention. However the use of a well crafted storyline and visual/audio engagement allow the messages to be conveyed successfully. A good example of info-tainment.

PSG Injection Moulding equipment

This video is from a series of promotional still images and videos, used online and at trade show exhibitions. The largest was a linked five screen video display

The emphasis from the PSG Marketing Department was firmly on ‘benefits to the user’. Our job was to convey the message in a visually interesting way while keeping the customers attention.

The videos were produced in English and German language formats over a period of about 10 years.

Video title sequence service

DVD title sequence still image

Our video title sequence service created this animated title for a DVD. The client, Ben Law, has previously been featured on Grand Designs. In addition he has written several books on his specialist subject of working with natural timber.

The client felt this short sequence summed up his ethos quite succinctly.

We used a mixture of 3d CGI toon style animation and 2d compositing to make this video sequence. Some of the customers original drawings were included in the title sequence.
