360 Aerial 3D Animation

I found this presentation to be pretty neat. Yes, it is simple, but I like the way how the frames were rendered using the hidden line technique and then swithcing over to a "cardboard type" model along the middle of the presentation and then ending with a fully colored model. I would also like to note that the people who produced this started the clip with a texture map of the floor plan/site plan, a style I have seen on other video samples in the past year, works great every single time.

3D Architectural Animation - House

From You Tube's 3D Designs "This is a 3D animation of a house, as it will be seen from the street driving up to it. The owner wanted to add enough landscaping that covers up the walkout basement level." ....Now, I have to mention, that the 3D landscaping in this short clip was so well done. A lot of care went into making this. The shrubbery and trees are by far one of the best I've seen in terms of realism and subtlety. Also, I'd like to add a quick note on the number of frames and playback speed decided to be used in this animation, in my opinion, was well conceived and assembled with the right values.

Unimed Fly-Through

Opera Image's 3d animation of architectural model Unimed HQ located in São Paulo, SP, Brazil. I love the sectional "cutaway" technique they used in the beginning of the animation. Then it flies beautifully throughout the inside of the design with brightly lit interiors with a bit of a diffused glow-like filter that creates that dreamy type of feel. Very smooth. Great Presentation!
