3D Rendering Quality Assurance Guide: How Do We Ensure Consistency Throughout Our Visual Contents?
Our utmost priority is building a healthy relationship with our clients and ensuring they are satisfied with our service. To ensure this, we have a stringent quality assurance protocol that ensures consistency in all our visual content solutions. Our 3D rendering workflow is built so that we succeed in meeting the client’s expectations.
This blog will tell you how we ensure consistency in every visual content we deliver and what makes House of Blue Beans the ultimate choice for 3D product rendering.
3D rendering is the final step in the visualization process, creating a photorealistic image from a 3D model. At House of Blue Beans, we understand that aside from quality, we must also ensure that the rendering is consistent. That’s because it impacts the believability of the final visual output and ultimately affects the user experience. This is why our 3D experts incorporate CGI to calculate how the light interacts with the objects and surfaces in the scenes and generate consistent 2D images.
Wondering why we go for CGI when we can adopt the traditional approach of generating visual content?
This is because despite having the upper hand by adding a personal touch through showcasing the craftsmanship and artistic skills of the sculptors, the traditional methodology has its limitations, making it an inefficient process in the long run.
How Traditional Photography Yields Inconsistent Results?
Since traditional photography leverages nature as its setup, numerous environmental factors can impact the different aspects of the image, resulting in inconsistency.
- Weather Condition: Weather keeps changing, which can be challenging, especially if you are doing photography with a specific scene in mind. Harsh sunlight, rain, and overcast skies can result in varying levels of illumination and impact the color rendition and appearance of the image.
- Lighting Conditions: Similar to the weather, the lighting conditions can also result in variations in shadows, highlights, and brightness. This inconsistent lighting will reflect in images with different tones, contrast, and color temperatures. Furthermore, the time of the day, especially in situations involving multiple photography sessions spanning days, can affect the consistency, causing image discrepancies.
Other than the environmental impact, other factors affect the consistency of the resulting image, such as:
- Camera and Equipment Differences: The traditional approach can involve using multiple cameras or lenses, leading to differences in image resolution, color rendition, and distortion. This can result in inconsistencies when merging images into a cohesive 3D model.
While there is no doubt that traditional photography is an essential medium for capturing real-world representation, it has limitations that can prevent one from achieving consistent images and videos. Physical models and practical setups introduce variability in lighting conditions, textures, and camera settings, leading to inconsistent results.
House of Blue Beans Methodology For Creating Consistent Visual Content
Wondering how do we ensure consistency throughout our project?
Let us walk you through the stages of our quality assurance methodology that ensure we deliver consistent quality visual content to our customers.
- Communication: The success of building a quality project lies in creating a foundation through effective communication. We ensure this by documenting all the information provided by the client so that there is consistency in the information being shared with the team members.
- Production Process: A workflow schedule is created, and roles and responsibilities are given to each professional. No matter the scale, a project manager, 3D artists, and a production director are assigned to every project.
When a client drops feedback on the renders, the project manager takes care of them and sends them to the 3D artists. To ensure that the comments are seen and revised, our 3D artists conduct an internal review before sending the visuals to the product director.
- Project Execution: Our process begins with a few reference images you send us and your requirements. The following aspects form the crux of our project execution for consistent 3D rendering.
3.1 Computer-Generated Imagery: We overcome these limitations of traditional photography by implementing CGI, which offers the following benefits when it comes to generating consistent images.
- Complete Control: Using CGI, we create hyper-realistic characters, objects, scenes, and more in a virtual environment. This gives us complete control over various aspects of the visual content. We can modify and manipulate the model, texture, lighting, and camera angles to achieve the desired result.
With every element being digitally created and controlled, there is no variation due to changes in lighting, weather conditions, or any physical material property, resulting in a consistent and cohesive final output. This ensures that no matter the quantity of the visual content, they are all consistent with the brand guidelines and standards.
Take this image, for example, where we had to ensure that the light emitted from the candle seems natural and just enough light enters through the window. We achieved the same using CGI.
- Smooth Transition: There is always a looming possibility that a particular visual content might require multiple takes or extensive reshoots to capture the perfect shot. But by using CGI, we seamlessly blend takes and ensure a smooth narrative flow.
- Reproducibility: The digital assets created through CGI can be duplicated and used in multiple shots or scenarios. Through this reproducibility, we ensure that the same element looks identical in every project that appears.
- Asset Management: Our CGI pipeline involves an asset management system that helps us keep track of all assets being used in the project. This helps us ensure that all the same models, textures, and materials are consistently used throughout production.
- Standardized Rendering Setting: Using the rendering setting feature in CGI, we control the different aspects of rendering, like resolution, frame rate, sampling rate, global illumination, depth of field, color management, etc. Standardizing these aspects across the project ensures that our output is consistent.
- Animation Control: By incorporating CGI’s keyframes, interpolation technique, and motion capture technology, we ensure a smooth movement of characters and objects throughout the sequence.
3.2 Digitally-Controlled Environment: Since the entire process takes place in a digitally controlled environment, our 3D artists are in control of minimizing or eliminating distractions to ensure that your target audience solely focuses on the product.
- We can lock the camera settings and ensure they are the same throughout the shooting process, ensuring that the parameters like exposure and focus are the same across all shots.
- To ensure color accuracy throughout the work, we employ color profiles that ensure the colors appear consistent across different devices and displays. Look at how we ensure that every color is precisely highlighted in the image below.
3.3 Visualization Management Software: House of Blue Beans visualization management software acts as a centralized content management platform, allowing for easy storage, access, and management of the visual content as long as a stable internet connection exists. We also offer tools like templates and branded elements, which can be used to ensure consistency throughout the marketing materials, thus reinforcing the brand’s identity.
- Review: A thorough review across different developmental stages are done to promptly bring the attention of the designated team member to any identified flaws or deviations. This also serves as an excellent opportunity for the 3D artists and project managers to ask the clients their questions.
Furthermore, we implement storyboarding and previsualization techniques before finalizing the CGI assets. This helps us identify any potential issue and fix it promptly and maintains a cohesive look and feel throughout the visual content.
- Summary: You might think your relationship with us ends once the project is delivered. But this is different with House of Blue Beans. Our project manager will provide you with a complete understanding of what the project entails, from every step taken to how it was concluded. A detailed summary communicates our achievements and helps us identify the areas that need improvement.
