Under architectural view the visual image of a real or a planning architecture is understood. It is designed to receive an aesthetic presentation at the stage of construction planning. Three-dimensional graphical representation is called “rendering” or “visualization”. It is performed in various forms with the help of different tools. Its classical form is an architectural drawing and a model. If everything has been made in a manual way then time-consuming rendering and computer simulation technique are used. Fundamental importance of rendering arises from numerical data presentation, leads to virtual excursions with camera and animation.
The simplest form of architectural representation is a layout or a line drawing. A pencil, a marker, a chalk, a fountain pen or a ballpoint pen are used in the quality of crayon tools.
Graphical rendering isn’t much new. Project owners are always interested in architectural appearance of a building before it will be built. Many famous architects have produced object’s visualization for their creations.
Active computer-usage data have displaced traditional illustrative techniques over the last years. Computer rendering gives great virtue to rapid processing and special feature of photorealistic image invention.
It is possible to create 3D models in a virtual apartment since ninetieth. With the help of CAD technologies production drawings and perspective views formed.
All virtual models can be elaborated or visualized in software of three-dimensional graphics. Herewith the virtual model is equipped with texture. As a result, the perspective is selected and visualized with high resolution or converted into two-dimensional surfaces. The most popular image today is so called «photorealistic image» whereby realistic clip arts are created.
By means of image processing program such elements as people and cars integrated into photo and coordinated with it so, that space sense is appeared.
Animation goes to even greater extents, because movies produced on the ground of 3D data today. You can be in the act of walking through the building even before laying of its foundation. At the same time, it is possible to modify lighting and materials, the whole construction, acoustics, etc. The holding lines don’t need to be handmade the present day and it is only a question of efficient use of correct tools.
