3D Architectural Renderings - animations
Ever sketched a stickman on a notebook corners to
create your own cartoon? 3D architectural animations are the same
thing, just without the pencil or notebook. 3D renderings are created
in sequence and played back quickly to give the effect of live motion.
This technique requires time, as each 3D rendered
frame of the animation may take anywhere from minutes to days to
create. The extent of this time penalty is mainly based on "rendering",
which is a term relating to the actual process the computer does
to produce one image (or "rendering"). Each second of animation
requires between 25 and 30 3D renderings done to broadcast quality.
