our very own Great Set Visions Bake Off! It’s been a month of tasty talents from our creative team showcasing
some stylish designs and mouth-watering treats! After rigorous tasting, voting
and waist band expanding three golden spoons were awarded…
Jal our Head of Creative produced an unconventional beauty
much like she does with her interior and room set design. Awarded the
Golden Spoon for Creativity her Chocolate
Cherry Delight made with beetroot, wild flowers and mascarpone. It was an
elegant floral beauty that won the hearts of everyone who voted.
The winner of tastiness goes
to Owen (CGI artist and baker extraordinaire) for his Coconut Lemon Drizzle
Cake which was thoughtful and packed with taste which exhibited top baking
skills. Owen's meticulous approach to baking is reflected in the
visualisation and CGI animation he works on here at Set Visions.
And the winner of moistness
and the overall winner of the competition goes to Nina! Nina's attention
to detail and perfectionists eye can be seen in her lifestyle and trend work,
top work from our Head Photographic Stylist. Congratulations,

The colours, patterns and textures from the catwalk can be translated into interior decoration, creating a synergy across both disciplines. Our interior stylists believe in staying ahead of the game and translating this seasons hot key trends as soon as they hit the catwalk.

At Set Visions we believe it is vital to be
forward thinking and keep ahead of the game when it comes to interior styling
and design, especially when creating high quality imagery.
Interior design is just as important as
fashion, and similar by moving in cycles. Two of our senior Stylists recently took
a trip to the Interiors UK show in Birmingham, to gain inspiration and knowledge
from leading global trend experts.
This market can be saturated, but for our
stylists it is important to understand the key trends and colours for the
coming seasons and year ahead. Ultimately ensuring our cgi renders remain market leaders.

As a CGI Interior scene progresses, adding more and more detail can have an effect on the working file size. Set Visions has created a unique method to retain maximum quality detail and keep file sizes manageable.
This not only helps the file size, it also helps render time and makes certain models easier to work with. Overall enabling us to create a larger photorealistic cgi scene if required.
Below is an example of a 'Prop' showing 2 settings used.

We've recently put a lot of work into our fabrics and soft furnishings…. you can never have too much practice at this art!
CGI Technicians have their own preferred routine of doing this. After a lot of trial and error and testing new methods etc, we think our results show it has been worth all the hard work.
The final results show a few steps in the process… cgi interiors with a photorealistic result.
