High-Quality Architectural Renderings Vs VR: Best Option For Presentations
- Need To Hire Programmers To Produce VR Programs
An architectural rendering company can provide scenes and 3D models, but the actual virtual reality program is made by dedicated programmers. It’s far from an easy job, since they have to account for a lot of factors, such as person-object interactions and so on.
- Long Production Time And High Costs
This is the reason why creating VR software can take months, even by large teams of specialists. The cost is self-explanatory, since a business has to pay not one, but two outsource companies, or keep a lot of in-house 3D artists and programmers just for creating virtual reality programs.
- Provides Unparalleled Immersion
Seeing objects on a screen is one thing, but being able to see them as if they were real, touch or fiddle around with your hands is something completely different. After such an experience there is no way potential customer will ignore brilliant architectural and design ideas!
- Showcases Goods In Any Environment
