This project is a white box representational 3D model of one of the main Exhibition Spaces at the Powerhouse Museum. The project was undertaken to provide the client with unlimited "White Box" rendered images of the space to be used for montages and marketing material in the engagement of international exhibitions, and showing the space to potential clients.
The specific exhibition this environment was commissioned for was the Miss Dior Exhibition that Powerhouse would like to secure.
This environment provides the ability to show in "White Box" the geometry of the space. It allows free roaming and exploration of the space for the user to get a sense of scale and perspective, and output images at will.
The environment provides the ability as default to walk around the space. Additional custom functions were added which include being able to "Fly" allowing for an aerial view of the space, turn the lighting rigs on and off to hide them from view, position the view in space, change the Field-of View of the Camera and save High-Resolution (6400 x 3600 pixel) White Box images.
Further functionality can be added to the environment including materials to bring the space to life, movable furniture and partitions to help with planning, interface graphics which can be branded to the client’s needs and include greater functionality and App development to have the environment on Mobile devices.
The resulting environments can be used for visualisation, client engagement, space planning, community engagement, visitor information and many more possibilities.
These are just a few of the broad applications of Realtime Environments, and the Team at ineni Realtime is always happy to discuss your custom virtual needs.
