Exterior CGI Process

At Cloud 9 we are very passionate about producing exterior CGIs and have the expertise to craft photorealistic renders, capturing your design in its best light and showcasing its features to the finest detail.

Please have a browse of this sample selection of our architectural CGI work from over the years. Get in touch to see how we can produce a CGI for your next property development project.

Typical turnaround: 8 working days

What we need from you:

Project Brief

Site photography and reference photos

Proposed CAD drawings or 3D model

Landscape drawings

Material, Planting schedules

Production process

Initial 3D modelling

The production of a basic 3D model so we can set up a number of viewpoints.

Camera creation

Initial viewpoints are created and issued for approval.

Lighting stage

Lighting is an important part of CGI, we take time to set up the lighting, a night-time shot displaying wonderful exterior lighting can give a different look and feel to a sunny daytime image.

Once we are happy with the lighting and atmosphere, the lighting visuals are then sent for approval.

Detailed 3D modelling

CAD drawings are used to create a detailed 3D model of your proposal.

Proposed finishes are recreated and applied.

Landscape elements are also added.

Rendering process

Draft Render

Our render farm calculates the 3D model, lighting, texture information, and save raw rendered CGIs, ready for the finishing touches to be added.

Post production

The render is enhanced post production, adjusting the levels, hue, contrast to give the image that photo realistic feel. People can also be added to enhanced the sense of scale.

Approval process & delivery

Once we are happy with the visual, these will be sent for approval via email, any minor amendments can then be made , the before finishing the CGIs, the final images will be released upon approval.
