Set Visions World Cup Final

The results are in and our gallery of winners is below. The final saw our very own studio heavyweight shootout between Argentina and Germany, or as we like to view it… Photography versus CGI Styling, aka Rob and Jess!

After a visually charming few weeks it’s time to congratulate our winner Jess. From the traditionalist and photographic enthusiast we saw the challenge of Argentina, with clear focus and sharp attack, always ready to shoot! But our winner was the technology leader, efficient, programmed and generated; we give you Jess and Germany… CGI, Complete German Invincibility… always a perfect alternative!

Stylists, Trends and Design

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.

Managing Detail, File Size & Render Time

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.

Soft Furnishings

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.
