Virtual Staging An Interior

Recommended Posts

Howdy CA friends,... Been approached by a Realtor who wants something better than the "staged" photos he can get locally from a digital photographer or available online. So was thinking about a virtual walk-thru using CA ... combined with ray-traced images as a presentation. Has anyone used CA to "virtually stage" a home just for the purposes of putting it on the market? Attached is an image of a virtual stage of an interior using staging software he found online but in certain respects, it is a bit lame.  Any thoughts?

yes, I doubt if they will want to pay what it will cost do so


In 2008 I became a licensed Realtor and thought of offering that service

to my fellow agents


It soon became apparent that the money just wasn't there


maybe for really high-end houses  ???

Here is a video that was done in another program that I felt could be done in Chief Architect even better and is along the lines of what you are asking maybe. This would require supplementary editing software but nothing very complex.

      Hi everyone!
      I'm trying to create a "secret" door.
      A door that looks like a bookcase but when pushed, opens up. Any tips/pointers would be appreciated!

      I'm sure this has been discussed, but I can't find anything specific that answers this question.
      I'm trying to create a simple vanity with two drawers and an open shelf underneath (see inspiration image of "vanity").  I simply can't figure out a way/remember how to add a shelf other than by using the shelf command. While this works visually, it treats it as a separate part of the vanity, thereby creating two separate pieces.  In the Working Plan and Kitchen and Bath View plans, the shelf shows up on top of the sink while the 3d view shows the shelf in the correct place!  I guess maybe it's, in part, a layers thing?
      I know there has to be a better way of doing this.  What am I missing/forgetting?

      We are a luxury residential interior design firm based just outside of Philadelphia. We have just signed a large project and are in search of outside space planning assistance. 
      More specifically, we need a talented and thorough designer who is well versed in Chief Architect Interiors to take measured blueprints and turn them into single room plans that our team can then add furniture and finishes to. Looking for someone with impeccable accuracy who is a quick and efficient communicator.
      Looking for assistance with 5-6 plans to start. Ideal turnaround would be 1 week or less. 
      If you are interested, please reach out to Katie at with 2-3 examples of plans you have created in Chief Architect Interiors as well as your proposed fee. 
      Thank you!
