from pursuing mainstream architecture, VISIONS is the only architectural
visualization studio in India using cutting edge technology of Virtual
Reality (VR) to produce international quality renderings, animation
and interactive multimedia presentations of architectural projects.
was set up in 1994 as an Architectural Visualization Studio specializing
in the creation of 3D Models of Real Estate related projects. As
Architects dedicated to the field of Computer Graphics, we firmly
believe in the Conservation of Historical Monuments using the available
tools available today. One of our first Heritage Projects was the
re-creation of the Durg Temple at Aihole, in southern India. This
Project was featured in the CD-ROM title "Adobe of the Gods".
Not satisfied with traditional Animation techniques we explored
the realms of Interactive Walk-thros using Smoothmove based Technology.
Our next project an Indian Temple, created with this technology
was featured in another CD-ROM title "Karmic Chaos". Currently
we are in the process of finishing up the great Moghal City of Fatehpur
Sikri using DirectX, which will be a Real Time fully Interactive
Walk-thro using Radiosity and Dynamic lighting. Here are some of
the most frequently asked questions about our work:
create something on computer when conventional hand-drawn 'perspective'
and hand-made 'models' have been doing the job?
the above mentioned techniques are quite time and cost consuming
and almost a dead-end for future changes. They can never be accurate
compared to anything derived from a computer capable to match a
fraction of an inch. Models are difficult to store. 'Perspectives'
do not lend themselves to be viewed from several angles. Compare
this situation to a computer 3D model; which once created allows
absolute control over obtaining multiple views from any possible
angle. Output in any possible number of copies and enlargements
of superior quality.
does a multimedia presentation help in sales and promotion?
create a long-lasting impact on the viewer. Impress your client
with professionalism. A profile of the company, current and future
projects, plans, amenities etc. can be viewed at Housing Expos,
in your own office, broadcast advertisements or even in a client's
home on a screen connected to a video or a computer. An animation
can make one fly-over or walk through a project with sound and special
effects. An interactive CD can further offer an experience of actually
navigating through the complex with our Virtual Reality (VR) tours.
What is the potential of VISION's abilities?
abilities to visualize with the power of CAD adapt to diversity
of fields such as architecture, interiors, landscapes, product designs,
advertising, desk-top publishing, CD-ROM creation on various topics,
.and much more. We specialize in recreating
archaeological and Heritage monuments. Our earlier projects in this
direction include an award winning animation of the Durg temple
at Aihole, created for a CD-ROM 'Abode of the Gods'; a comprehensive
study on south-Indian temples. Another Virtual Reality (VR) of a
temple is incorporated in a CD-ROM ' Karmic Chaos'; a detailed study
on Hinduism. Our current projects are: 'Resurrection of Fatehpur
Sikri' and 'Bombay'.
