A Step-by-Step Guide to Getting the Best 3D Visuals for Your Business
according to Faraday 3D
Before The Project: A checklist of requirements
Is your business better off focusing on its core competencies? If so, working with a 3D studio is truly the best path for you to take. Before embarking on your search for the best 3D studio to cater to your needs, there are several things you need to ask. Take note of the answers to these questions because they will guide your search:
- 1. What do you want to achieve?
- Why do you need 3D visualization?
- How do you expect the 3D work to contribute to your business?
- What do you expect your customers or potential customers to feel, do, say, or decide after seeing your 3D art?
- 2. What exactly do you need?
- List down the quantity, sizes, resolutions/qualities, themes, landscapes, lighting, and other elements that you think should be part of the 3D work you need. Try to be as specific as possible; this will be very useful for the studio not only to create what you need but also to give you the right price. It will also help you clarify your business’s 3D requirements.
- Where and how do you plan to use, display, or share the 3D work that
- What are some pegs/samples that closely resemble the final product/s you’re hoping for?
- 3. What is your business like?
- What industry are you in?
- What is your company’s Vision, Mission, and Objectives?
- What makes you stand out from your competitors?
- Who are your target customers?
- How do you satisfy your customers?
- 4. How much is your budget?
- How much is your business willing to invest in 3D work?
- Set a minimum and maximum amount, but it’s best to be ready to adjust especially if the work you need is quite complex.
- Specify if your budget is fixed or flexible so that the studio can adjust as needed.
- 5. When do you need the work done?
- Align your 3D work delivery timeline to your business’s operations calendar.
- Make sure that you give ample time for the 3D studio to really create what you need. In order to discover how much time is needed, you need to discuss the project in detail with the studio (we will talk about how to do this later in this post).
- Add buffer or allowance time to cover emergencies or unforeseen circumstances.
- Good things usually take time, so never expect extremely high-quality work to be delivered in a rush.
Once you’ve sufficiently answered the questions above, it’s time for you to search for the right studio.
