Quick Deck/ Pool Study

So this was an extremely quick study complete while client (friend) and i were sitting at his dining table.  He snapped a picture of the back of his house, i threw it into Sketchup, and we started playing with designs for a deck and pool.  Added it into Lumion, and Shazam...down and dirty animation to show his wife who is traveling for business.  Now this is not the prettiest animation i have ever done, but good enough for him to visualize the project.

Deck/ Pool Addition
Modeled: Sketchup
Animated in Lumion 1.5 secs a frame at 2 stars 1280x720
Total time from start to finish (design, modeling, entourage) 3 hours (working with the client simultaneously with many design changes and drinking beer).

Very nice but the end was a little fast ;), i like the music, but is better when you use the fade in/out music.

The vid was kinda a last minute thing...actually he just wanted me to use sketchup so Lumion was just a bonus.  I will say that he saw the way the space looked much better with trees and a bikini clad woman than just a straight sketchup file.  I put the vid on YouTube and he said "what no music?" As a joke...so I just used the YouTube standard music.  The whole thing is unrefined, but as a study worked well for the intended purpose.  Now, he just has to shell out the big bucks to get it built...good thing he knows a guy like me to do this for free!

Just a quick update while messing around on my lunch hour...nothing too significant; houses, trees, camera effects, more people, and Gilson's fancy buoys (thanks Gilson!!!).  Still nothing outstanding, think it looks much better than the first.  Man with this project went from drinking beer to eating food  :D

i dig it. And i certainly dig that recipe for success!

This is exactly why Lumion is so powerful. EXACTLY!

The ability to quickly "sketch" an idea in 3d and then breathe life into it almost magically in Lumion has revolutionized visualization for many of us.

It doesn't have to be perfect or hollywood quality for people to be able to "experience" a space or design in a richer fashion than the simple output we used to provide in the same amount of time.

i know alot of people like to unfavorably compare to vray, etc. but for me, i don't think there is enough time to use those types of packages on most projects anymore. Not saying some people cant, but time and money, both hard to come by these days, dictate a different set of procedures and protocols for most of the work i am involved in.

I also think that all of these factors can certainly create a competitive advantage over my competitors who insist on using all of the "industry standard" software packages to achieve what they consider to be superior products. I have experienced it personally. Some of my clients have been blown away that i can provide very good quality renderings AND animations in such short time...and time is money.

I dont think it is devaluing the industry at all, just redefining what some smaller budgets can accomplish and what larger ones can do with a new and different approach. no worries, those that want "industry standard" products will continue to pay for them IMHO.

...whew, where did all that come from??? sorry brian, nice "sketch"!
