3D Modeling on My Exhibition Gallery
I’ve always wanted to do a personal exhibition, which I had done 3 times within 10 years of my photographic journey. Two of which the charity collections were fully given to the Adventist Hospital in Penang, and another a collaborative effort of 4 wonderful friends coming together to exhibit photos around Asia. We called it ” The Forty 5 Exhibits” – 40 photos , 5 exhibitors . . .
This time, with a little imagination and with the help of 3D softwares, I am now able to “visualize” how it would eventually be staged and exhibited in a Gallery. Here’s how I achieved it – animating the entire process of an exhibition walk through.
An computer model sketch of a photo exhibition gallery relating to ” Chinese Traditions and Cultures ” in Asia.
A) Model sketch was first done in Keynote . . .
B) Gallery modelling ideas and layouts were then put into Google SketchUp 3D Design software to achieve an overall 3 dimensional mock up. Final touch up was performed to realism. This process took around 45 minutes.
C) It was then exported to Lumion 8 software where additional objects were animated in a walk-through. The objects include the following :
i) Lighting , ii) People , iii) Furniture , iv) Animations
D) Composed appropriate soothing Chinese Music with the use of Logic Pro X in my iMac, using only 2 Chinese instruments, the Erhu and Gucheng.
E) The result of combining all these elements took around 5 hours to complete. It was achieved with the Apple Keynote software.
