Initially, the architectural representations were limited to works of art painted by hand.
Now he is best known for 3D illustrations. Although the words are the same, the 3D architectural rendering process has brought a great change in itself. Architectural representations painted by hand are configured accordingly. They are colored and illuminated on a flat surface.
In the case of 3D architectural representation, they are configured as virtual reality scenes using a computer and in complex calculations, an image is created. The process involved in these calculations is called “rendering”. Previously, a traditional architectural illustration was an important service and was available for high-quality works of art.
It was difficult to find a good illustrator at this time. difficult to modify, but inaccurate, but you can not blame the illustrator for the final result.
Nowadays, it is very common to see architectural illustrations based on 3D and illustrations in preparation. But let me now inform you that a computer-generated image was known in the early 1990s.
3D was considered a new technology (coming soon). At that time, creating an architectural image took longer than hand-made illustrations. In addition, the result was boring and outdated, regardless of the operator's ability. The main reason was that by the mid-1990s, the technology could be improved.
Therefore, it was possible to combine 3D illustrations and hand-painted illustrations to obtain more flexibility and precision and thus make the image realistic enough.
It was only in the late 1990s that people began to take architectural 3D illustrations and interpret them seriously.
3D is now viable, not only for traditional illustration but also for real photography. The 3D rendering artist of today is considered a specialist. It is also considered important as a computer-generated image concept that includes animators, modelers, character animators, texture/material creators, lighting experts, and IT personnel, as it is responsible for material maintenance.
The hardware was considered the main problem to solve to obtain realistic 3D representations within the given time and with an acceptable quality. In the absence of a pleasant representation, it is necessary to know that you need more computing power. At first, the speed of the material was critical.
But later, the computers became faster and an improvement was noticed, which benefited the main activity of the industry, the artists and the domestic users. Advances in 3D architectural rendering hardware have paved the way for new techniques. The artists accepted the new material technology as a blessing for them.
If you want to create pure and realistic images, you should see that they are constantly trying to expand the limits of hardware and software.
Nowadays, most printed publications recommend high-quality 3D illustrations and representations. The field of architectural representation and 3D illustration has grown in a growing industry.
Due to the demand for architectural representation and 3D works of art, it is now found that hand-painted architectural works of art are in decline. Although the traditional market can be further reduced, the best will survive because they have artistic skills that will defend them.
However, the 3D architectural rendering is here to stay and will continue to improve as the technology progresses.
