3D Architectural Animation

Overview:- Any architectural, whether fully / partially constructed or is still in conceptualization process, needs something to represent itself and leave some unforgettable marks on the clients, and the viewers. For this purpose, many methods have evolved since the invention of Civil and architectural design works. It must have a “Three dimensional (3D)” representation so as to make sure that the viewer doesn’t miss anything which is actually present in the architectural design. This miss out can result in losing a business. Therefore, the best suitable medium to display any art work is an Animation. Modelling is one of these methods. 3D Architectural Animation is one such method that serves the purpose so well that the viewer gets to know everything about the 3D Architectural Design, and nothing gets missed out.


Architectural Animation: –

Animation of any kind can be represented with many things – e.g. a Flip-Book, Pop-Up charts, Animation Design, Flip-Charts, Sand Animation, etc. When it comes about 3D Architectural Design and to animate that design is a kind of a tricky job, which can only be relied on Professional Animators and Story tellers. This maintains the flow of information and the exactness of the information to be passed on to the viewers.

Computer Aided Design and Animation techniques when merged together with Rendering Techniques, best outcome of an Architectural Animation is obtained.

How to animate a 3D Architectural Design:

To create a 3D Architectural Animation from a ready-to-use 3D Architectural Design, at first, it seems to be the job of a million dollar spenders. But that’s not true. It just takes simple steps and complex coded Software Programs with best UIs (User Interfaces).

  1. Selecting the best Animation Design Program – Use of Maya, or 3Ds Max, Adobe PremierPro, Adobe AfterEffects, etc. software programs to get our work done is quite high, to serve many other purposes. According to the tools required the software program is chosen. Normally the facility of importing and exporting animation files from one program to another is highly usable. Therefore, it’s the best practice to select the software program that provides it.

  1. Getting the Design Ready – Illustrate, Compose, Storyboard, and Fix everything by solving the puzzled-some graphics that might have been collected from the 3D Architectural models, photographs, rendered graphics, and design portfolios.

  1. Set the stage – Once everything is settled, now the time has come to animate all these objects, give sound effects, platforms, and rigging everything for the stage. Shape Tweens, Motion Tweens, and Shearing are used for setting up the architectural design and creating a 3D architectural animation. Careful being about 3D given an edge to the animation.

  1. Once done with the above steps, a complete animation is ready and it can now be put on air or projector screens, or any other display media.

The 3D Architectural Animation designs must address all the issues and objects present in any building.
