Types of rendering services
The 3D rendering process is one of the final steps in the creation of 3D Art, where the 3D model or scene is processed into images or videos. However, in many 3D projects "3D Renderings" refer to the creation of 3D models with textures and materials to be rendered for the specific needs of the client. In other words clients are looking for images or videos made using 3D, rather than traditional photography or cinematography.
3D Rendering services are regularly used by a variety of 3D professionals - 3D Designers, Architects (3d architectural renderings and visualizations), Manufacturers of Products, Game Producers, Movie Producers, Developers, Entrepreneurs, Interior Designers, Website Designers, Marketing Agencies etc. And let’s not forget the non-professinals, who use realistic 3D rendering services in order to better represent their products, designs or ideas, as well as to better advertise and sale their products.
Why Tornado Studios?
The most important thing is personal attention, as well as flexible control over the end results. We will help you first to crystalize your idea or design into a plan of action. Then we will do the 3D modeling, texturing and material work. In the end, once you are satisfied with the results, we use our rendering farm to finalize the project with a high quality 3D rendering and/or video that is ready for your presentation, marketing, product launch etc. We have a wide range of experience thanks to our diverse team of 3D artists. From molecules and subatomic particle simulations to the creation of whole 3D cities for fly-by animations and architectural visualizations we have done it all, from characters to machinery and from anatomy to environments.

How much time does it take?
There are two main factors to be taken into account when answering such a question. You need to consider the hardware ( type and quantity ) on one hand and the complexity of the 3D Scene on the other. For example a single 3D model can be rendered by your personal computer for anything from 2 min to several hours or days depending on the complexity of the 3D model. However, a 3D rendering farm can render that same 3D Model for seconds or minutes because of the large amount of individual computers and because every single one of those computers is usually much faster than the one you have at home.
What kind of sub-services there are and how do they change the price?
Тhere are several stages that lead to the rendering process. You need to have your 3D Scene pass the stages of modeling, texturing, materials and lights. In addition to all that there is one more possible step that comes after the rendering process - Post-Production.
Simply put post-production is used when you need to make your final images even more beautiful by adding color correction, effects as well as change the tonality or lighting of the scene. These manipulations are done in a specialized 2D software. You can call this step Editing of the rendered images.
Rather than change colors in the 3D Scene and render again you simply add special effects to make that happen and save time. Check the comparison below to see the difference between a raw image and once that has been post-produced. Contact us for more information.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is 3D Rendering?
A 3D Render is a type of computer generated image ( CGI ) or a series of images, that can be composed into a video. The CG image is created within a 3D software using objects, lights, materials and cameras all within the 3D simulated space. You can learn more about 3D rendering and its uses in our blog post.
Where is 3D rendering used?
Nowadays 3D renderings are used everywhere around us. The technology developments through the years has brought the quality of computer generated (CG) images to a new level. The word "photorealistic" is used to describe a 3D rendering that can be mistaken for a real photograph. 3D rendering is heavily used within the Movie industry as well as the Gaming, Augmented and Virtual reality industries. More than that, however 3D renders are used by the marketing industry. Almost all ads and commercials we see feature a 3D model of some kind.
What rendering engine do you use?
Through the years we have been studing many different softwares as well as rendering engines. Currently we specialize in V-ray for 3Ds Max, Maya and C4D. For more information on the specific types of render engines that we can use feel free to contact us.
What is your rendering capacity ?
Our rendering capacity varies greatly and it is dependant on the workload. We are always in production for our clients and for our own 3D asset catalog on Turbosquid. Our computer farm is constantly rendering so if you are looking for a specific estimate of your project you have to contact us so that we can then let you know if we can be of service.
Can you render my model / scene ?
We most certainly can ! In order for us to do so, we will need more information from you. Contact us with details about your scene, software used and desired result and we can help you out.
Can you teach me to render like you do ?
Currently we do not offer rendering courses as a product that you can buy. We are, however, working on slowly building our own video tutorials series for learning 3D in general. So if you are student of 3D stay tuned to our website and blog where we will post updates.
For our clients, we do offer support and help with rendering ( especially in V-ray ). If you are working with us and you need help with your renderings, we are always here to help and advice.
