X9 ray trace and video

Recommended Posts

With Ray trace it is possible to

achieve a very good quality photo, it takes a while but that is beyond the point.

 

is it possible to create a walkthrough video with the same definition of a rendered Ray Trace image using Chief only?

No, only Rendering techniques are available for walkthroughs.

I believe that the answer is yes but the time and computing power involved would make it impractical for the majority of clients to be able to afford unless there was a Hollywood budget available.  If you have lots of time or two or three high end Xeon workstations at your disposal it would be possible to use Chief's precision camera controls to produce thousands of high quality ray traces and stitch them together into a movie with editing software.

 

One of the guys did a short clip just in Movie Maker a while back using the zoom and pan features of the software and a few raytraces and it was quite effective, so depending on your level of perfection there are lots of choices when heading in this direction.

 

Also Chief did reveal some significant rendering improvements at the UGM this year for the upcoming version, so there is that to look forward to.

What is wrong with this?

Lumion works on a good workstation from models exported from Chief

You may also want to take a look at the possibilities of the new 360 deg. raytraces and maybe even screen capture video of several of those could be edited into a video if you are on a tight budget.

 

Don't forget to post your results if you come up with something good.

I'd definitely give it a try

Lumion is too expensive for most to own but if you really need a Movie Walkthrough then an Option would be to have one of the people like Jintu (Chiefer) who does this for a living Render it for you.
