At Lanterne Digitale, we consider an object’s design as a work of art. With this in mind, we make it our duty to find out what will set your product apart and present it in its best light. With you, we will highlight its best features and demonstrate its features in an original and effective manner.
Throughout production, our team will keep you constantly up to date on the progress of operations. We will have each important element validated according to a precise and pre-established schedule. With your collaboration, we will design and produce images and videos of your vision, so that every relevant feature of your product is present, and every benefit for its various applications is clearly demonstrated.
STEP 01 | 3D Modeling
From the information and documents provided (2D/3D drawings, solidworks files or other) we will recreate the product to be presented. We will model each of the important details as necessary, and when relevant, we will even be able to create a contextual 3D scene adapted for each of its applications and benefits. For each of the major elements to be modelled, image renders will be generated to enable you to validate the measurements of the product.
When the volumetry is complete, we will generate several 3D preview images that will allow you to determine and validate the ideal camera plans to best promote your project.
STEP 02 | Textures
With the provided information on materials and finishes provided, we will create the colours and textures that make up the product and its immediate environment. We apply them to the different surfaces of 3D models and generate images for you to validate the colors and textures of the product(s).
STEP 03 | Lighting
Once the volumes and materials have been validated, we will proceed with the lighting of the product. The lighting of a 3D model is a crucial step in the production of a quality 3D image. It is at this stage that the ambience and atmosphere of a scene takes shape and the lines of a product are highlighted.
For the creation of a fully computer generated image, or partial image generation for photographic integration, we will simulate the ideal lighting for product enhancement, according to your preference.
When the lighting is set, we will generate low-resolution images for validation purposes. Once these have been approved, we will start the final calculation of the images at the required resolution (usually determined by the chosen distribution medium (printing, website, distribution, etc.).
STEP 04 | Post-production
Post-production is the stage during which we make the final adjustments on the generated image. We’ll accentuate the colours, correct certain contrasts to highlight the major attractions of the product. Lens effects, highlights, depth of field, accessory elements will be added if these were not already present in the 3D model. In short, we will improve the image in order to best promote it to our target clientele.
Once the final 3D visual validated, it will be given to you in the format of your choice, without conditions or limitations.
