Final Deliverable

Phase 1: Environment Building and Camera Selections – This stage involves rendering clay preview scenes of the Built Environment for client approval. A Phase One scene should include multiple camera options and preliminary lighting. This stage is complete when client approves camera angles and verifies accuracy of Built Environment.

 Phase 2: Asset & Material Coordination – This stage involves rendering materialized scenes for client approval. A Phase Two scene should include all specified Models and Materials and refined lighting. This stage is complete when client verifies the accuracy and application of all specified Models and Materials.

 Phase 3: Final Staging and Production – This stage involves rendering staged scenes for client approval. A Phase Three scene should include any subjective staging elements including any furniture, decoration and entourage. This stage is complete when client approves the final composition of all rendered elements.

 Phase 4: Post-Processing – This stage involves final post production of renderings for client approval. Post-processing typically includes adding skies, backgrounds, and additional 2D entourage elements as well as adjustments to color, contrast, etc.

Frequently Asked Questions about 3D Renderings by our clients.


1. I submitted a contact form to your team for 3D Renderings, how do we get started?
Someone from our team will be in contact within 24 hours and request drawing files if you have not provided them in the attachment form.  After we recieve the files, we will send over a proposal to get started on your project!

2. Can I pay after the 3D images are complete?
Unfortunately it is our company policy to request (1/2) payment up front for rendering services to begin, and the additional (1/2) upon completion.  This is to ensure that our clients provide us with information in a timely manner, and that our team turns around the 3D visuals quickly for our clients.

3. How many revisions do I get to make on the virtual image?
During phase two of creating the 3D model, we allow 2 hours of client feedback.  Once client approves the massing we move to phase 3 for material application.  After phase 3 we allow an additional 2 hours worth of corrections to the materials only.  If additional modeling is required, we will submit an additional 3D rendering service contract for extra hours in correcting the 3D massing.

4. Can you do 3D Renderings from my architect’s blue prints?

Yes! It is what we do best! We can accurately take the 2D drawings and convert them into 3D virtual models of your project from either scanned drawings or CAD files being E mailed to us.

5. How long does a 3D Rendering take to complete?

An average rendering of a simple 3 bedroom home for example may take 10 to 15 hours to complete. A residential subdivision with 4 model homes, perhaps 100 hours. It is the degree of complexity in conjunction with the magnitude/scope of the project where the time to complete can be reasonably ascertained, once all pertinent information is in hand.

6. How much does a 3D Rendering cost?

Pricing does vary with the quantity of images required as well as the complexity of the design of the wire frame. As you can see by looking at the picture at the top of the page, things can get extremely complex. Some jobs are not so complex, so we really must determine your need to provide an accurate estimate as well as the time to complete the project. Animations and 360 walk throughs are more costly than still renderings and take far more hours to get those jobs done.
