How many renderings or seconds of animation will I get?
We do not set about a project based on how many images we will give you. We go about setting up a perfect scene in 3D and everything else is more or less a by product of that scene. This means that we do not know how many rendering or how much video we will be delivering as the real question to be posed is “how much do you need?”
A single scene of a hotel/resort lobby might need 3 renderings to portray it completely while a pool or outdoor area might need 2 rendering to portray it completely, all of which you may use or m ay just choose one – it all comes down to your needs.
As far as fly-through animation goes, we will do a draft video and will determine the best length of footage then, delivering what’s needed.
How much do we charge?
We work and price differently to other companies. We do not work on a per rendering or per second price, we work on a scene by scene basis. To you this means you get a price that more accurately represents the work that goes into a project. It also means that you may get more for your money.
The process of pricing your 3D work is simple; you provide us with some plans or sketches of the areas and give us an idea of what you would like yo see. It is also important for us to know if you want a full 3D animated presentation or just still renderings. If you order an animated presentation then you get your still images included by default.
What resolution will you deliver the images at?
Resolution is a loose term that can be interpreted many ways and also misused by many. Our answer to this is simple – you can have as much resolution as you desire and we do not restrict size, DPI or overall scale.
We’ve got you covered!
What format will the videos and animation be in?
Our standard delivery is high-definition 1080p at the industry standard 24 frames per second. This is normal for TV commercials/shows and standard high-define broadcasting.
We can also deliver to 4K resolution but may charge slightly more to do so.
How long does the process take?
Every project at Archiform 3D is vastly different, as while we will still do something as small as a house, we often do large scale projects that require extensive design, feedback, development and modification.
A simple answer is that if you have a house and have everything ready then we could have it done in a week, but if you have a large community with mixed use buildings and lots of input required then it could take 6 weeks or even longer.
Something to note is that the time spent making modifications and experimenting with ideas on some projects takes considerably longer than the actual production time.
