Limited Edition Graphics- the making of
Information and specifications
When the car of choice has been selected, many hours are then taken sourcing and studying photographs and blueprints in order to replicate the details on the car from body panels curves down to bolts and rivets. By doing this, an exact and scaled 3D replica is produced. Some of the prints are produced of a specific chassis numbered car and thus take up much more time to find all the correct details.
3D Model Creation
Once all the photographic data has been compiled and studied, the creation of the 3D can begin. Using high-end professional software the cars are recreated using the blueprints and photos as a guide as well as measurements. On average, in excess of 140 hours are needed in order to faithfully recreate each vehicle at 1:1 scale.
Textures, decals and paint
Once the model has been created the materials are selected for each vehicle such as paint colour and specification, the application of decals and badges and the addition of textures to the paint and metals.
Test renders and tweaks
During this stage test renders are carried out in our 'studio' using virtual lighting and reflections to ensure that the bodywork is flawless and the colour and textures are all correct. Modifications are made to the model and associated files at this stage.
Virtual Photographic Studio rendering
The 3D car is then placed in to the 'virtual photographic studio' with all the correct lighting for the final desired effects along with the camera set-up for the high-quality professional rendering. A final computer render can take anything up to 1.5 days of computer calculations.
