Simple Lifestyle is recommended for capturing single shots of small or medium-sized products, particularly in scenarios with limited background space. It's important to note that 3D modeling is not included in this service and would need to be requested separately. You can find a demonstration of Simple Lifestyle in our Pricing Section.

Complex Lifestyle

The Complex Lifestyle option incorporates the same four elements as the Simple option: designing and creating a basic environment for your 3D model based on reference images, customizing lighting, rendering the 3D model, and performing final post-production in Photoshop. The distinction is that the Complex Lifestyle option is suitable for larger product shots or group shots, involving 2-3 items in a single scene. An example of Complex Lifestyle can be found in our Pricing Section.

3D Visualization

Using 3D rendering software, a 3D model or models can be used to generate an image that appears either photorealistic or non-photorealistic. The final output of this process is commonly referred to as a render.

CGI CRM

CGI CRM is a digital platform where our clients can communicate with the team of 3D artists, monitor the working process, use the library, store project files and so on.

360° view

Also known as 360° product rendering, this is a form of product imagery that enables customers to rotate a model and view it from various perspectives. We generate each 360° view using 60 high-resolution images with dimensions of 1920*1080 px. The use of 360° views has become prevalent in ecommerce as it enhances the customer experience, emulating the feeling of shopping in person and ultimately increasing conversion rates.

AR, or Augmented Reality

Augmented Reality (AR) is a cutting-edge technology that enhances the viewing experience of products by overlaying virtual representations onto the real world. An excellent illustration of this technology is found in the interactive IKEA catalogs, where users can virtually place furniture in their desired interiors. The 3D models look incredibly realistic and are scaled to match their real-life counterparts. At VIZFurniture, we excel in utilizing our clients' existing 3D models or creating new ones from scratch, enabling seamless integration into their AR applications.

VR, Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality (VR) is a simulated environment that offers users an interactive and immersive experience by replicating sensory events like sight and sound. Using digital recreations of objects, users can navigate and interact with them in a virtual environment, similar to real-life experiences. This technology allows users to examine the features and advantages of various objects, make changes like altering fabrics or finishes, and explore different options.

For our clients, we specialize in creating 3D panoramas that provide a lifelike setting to experience furniture. These panoramas can be accessed through VR headsets or desktop computers. By utilizing VR, we are able to showcase entire product collections and concepts in a three-dimensional format, enabling our clients to visualize and evaluate designs before they reach the production stage.

Copywriting

Copywriting involves the skill of selling products through compelling storytelling. Storytelling has numerous benefits, including stimulating the imagination, evoking emotions, and creating a strong bond between readers and products. While visuals can showcase a product's appearance, copywriting helps customers realize how a specific model will be perfect for them. Through carefully chosen words, copywriting immerses readers in the image, engaging all their senses and allowing them to imagine touching, smelling, and interacting with the product on a whole new level.

Copywriting is utilized in various marketing materials such as trade catalogs, brochures, flyers, billboards, and website product pages. Although the volume may differ, these different genres share a common objective: enabling brands to establish effective communication between customers and their products.

To get an estimate of the cost for your copywriting project, you can use our Pricing page's Calculator. Each item corresponds to one hour of work, which is the time typically needed to write a 20-30 word product description for a catalog.

Wireframe Model

CG Product Animation

A computer-generated video is created to demonstrate the product in action, which is utilized by marketers and manufacturers to emphasize the product's features, demonstrate its functionality, or educate viewers on product selection and manufacturing processes. The distinction between traditional and 3D product animation lies in the ability of the latter to generate various perspectives, intricate details, and multiple environments without requiring their physical existence. This grants marketers complete creative freedom.

High-poly, or highly-polycount model

High-poly modeling is a technique used to create detailed and realistic 3D models. Its purpose is to showcase the texture and material quality of an object, making it perfect for photorealistic visualizations, lifestyle scenes, and white background presentations.

Low-poly, or low-polygonal model

Low-poly models are ideal for interactive solutions like Augmented Reality apps and games, prioritizing file size over intricate details. These models require less computer memory and are well-suited for creating interactive 3D products.

High-Res Images

High-Resolution Images are indispensable for print advertisement with 300dpi: posters, large format catalogs and some types of small-scale outdoor ads. There are 2 most popular formats for such types of resolution for traditional ads:

  • 3508×2480 px for A4 size;
  • 2550×3300 px for Letter size.

Photorealistic high-resolution images catch the attention of clients and make for stellar marketing campaigns.
