What is rendering and where did it come from?

A 3D rendering in its basic form is an image comprised of “frames” that indicate that the image is 3D. A rendering creates the image or CG artist that makes individual models, places them into a computer program then “renders” space. This space comprises lighting techniques and material techniques that are unique to the knowledge of the rendering artist. Many rendering artists have noticeable styles.

The most famous example of a photorealistic rendering is called the Utah Teapot. In 1975, Utah Ph.D. researcher Martin Newell was experimenting with a new form of CAD. Throughout this research, he developed models to create and transform into a 3D photorealistic image. At first, he made simple shapes, including the donut and chess pieces, but he became stuck at the next hurdle at home. When speaking about his dilemma with his wife, Sandra, she suggested he design a teapot. So, he did. To this day, it has become a pinnacle for computer-aided designers.

There is no industry standard when it comes to interior design visualization. That being said, particular programs render better than others. But it’s crucial to find the program that works best for your company and your workflow.

Everyone has a personal preference; just find yours.

When it comes to interior visualization, there are two categories of software Modeling software and Rendering software. The difference between the two simply comes down to the order of action. While both are part of the CAD world, one of them (such as SketchUp) is design software that allows you to build the geometry, set up the camera, and add detail. The other is the rendering software (such as; Twinmotion or Edesign Platform), where the texture and lighting are added to increase photorealistic Rendering.
