The demand for CGI services is on the rise. High-quality 3D renders became invaluable assets for any architect, designer, or real estate professional. However, creating accurate, photorealistic images requires high expertise and exceptional attention to detail. Is it possible to always get beautiful and consistent imagery with a large outsourced team of 3D artists? Yes, if you pick the right contractor.
With more than 12 years in the field, our architecture visualization studio leaves no stone unturned when it comes to our work. Want to know more about how exactly we manage to deliver consistently high-quality 3D imagery for your projects? Read on!
#1. Double-check Quality Control System
We’ve established a custom QA system to ensure all 3D renders we produce meet the highest standards. Before being presented to the customer, every image goes through a meticulous double-checking process. Here is how it works.
First, the visuals are reviewed by our project managers. Their job is to ensure the images align with the brief and our studio’s inner quality standards. This initial check helps us catch any inaccuracies and make necessary adjustments early on.
Next, our team leads step in to examine the imagery. When deciding whether CGI is high-quality, they’re not relying on their subjective impressions alone. We have our custom-developed criteria called SDC (storytelling, details, composition) in place. SDC encompasses the essence of what makes a 3D visual captivating and engaging. By using those criteria, we ensure all the team members are on the same page regarding what can be called high-quality 3D imagery.
#2. Saving Your Critical Requirements
We know that each project comes with unique challenges and that each client has specific requirements. To ensure we deliver perfect results when working with a particular customer, we store all their preferences in our CGI CRM. We do it starting from the very first task we complete for them.
These preferences are called critical requirements. They encompass various aspects, such as image resolution, file formats, image naming rules, preferred angles, camera settings, and the like. Additionally, we keep track of the works that the client liked most in terms of atmosphere, lighting, details, etc.
Periodically, our team, together with the lead, reviews and updates the requirements. By doing so, we continually refine our understanding of our client’s vision. This guarantees that every CG visual we make is on-brand and high-quality.
#3. Using Custom Ready-made CG Assets
Our 3D project management system is aimed at fostering a seamless workflow for both our customers and CG specialists. As part of this effort, we offer a personalized library called ‘MyLib’ to each customer. These libraries are a part of our CRM.
How does it function? During our collaboration with a certain client, we create 3D models, materials, and scenes that are specific to their projects. All these assets are then added to their MyLib. This makes it effortless for the client to set up a new task, as they already have a part of the assets in place.
The process for 3D artists is streamlined as well. They can reuse the models and materials from previous works to complete the tasks quicker while delivering high-quality 3D visuals.
#4. Saving Index Scenes
To maintain consistency and stick to customer preferences, we use so-called ‘index scenes’. An index scene is a 3D scene from a client’s project, carefully saved with the lighting settings and camera angles that align with their specific preferences.
Having index scenes allows us to quickly recreate the necessary environment for the customer’s new tasks. This approach not only makes the production process faster but also ensures that high-quality standards are consistently met.
#5. Holding Inner Competitions
To ensure the skills and creativity of our specialists flourish, we hold quarterly inner contests for the best renderings. During these competitions, our senior 3D experts meticulously assess each submitted CG image using the SDC criteria. The authors of the best works are awarded prizes. This way, our artists always have an additional incentive to deliver high-quality 3D visuals and master new skills.
