We have a common procedure for typical projects in 7cgi. The process is explained below in stages-
Project information. To draw up a budget as tight as possible, we need some information about the project, drawings, sketches, reference photos, deliverables, delivery time, etc. It is not necessary that the project is well defined and has all the info at the very beginning. For architectural visualization projects, we need drawings and reference photos in case of renovation. It's a plus if you have a 3D model. For product visualizations, we need as many reference photos as possible. However, we are also trained to develop 3D models from just one photo and rough measurement.
Beginning of the project. Once the quotation is accepted, and after payment of the retainer fee, we proceed to start the project. While the project is in progress we will update you on a daily basis.
Draft stage. For architectural renderings, once it is confirmed that the model is correct we will fix the viewpoint with the client. For this phase, we will generate a large number of low-resolution images. This way the client can choose which points of view fit better to his needs.
Lighting and materials. Once the points of view are approved, we will advance with the materials finishes, lighting, and creating the desired atmosphere for the images.
Previews. Applied Materials and lighting, we proceed to make render the images in low resolution so that the client can make comments.
Final rendering. Once the low-resolution images are approved we proceed to the rendering in higher resolution and some post-production adjustments. The images will be sent to the clients.
Delivery and Invoice. Once the final image has been accepted and the final payment has been made, we send the final images in high resolution and without watermarks.
