If you happen to be at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh this week (20th - 26th July 2015) you'll see some of our work - it's on the side of One Aviation's Eclipse 550. What, you may ask, is the work? Well it's one of the most interesting projects we've worked on and shows how our technology combines with our creative services. Still wondering? Put simply, we've created a one-to-one scale render of the inside of an Eclipse 550, which is then stuck to the outside giving the impression that parts of the fuselage have been cut away.
Lightworks as a Siemens Solutions Partner became involved in this exciting project at the request of Siemens. We brought our rendering know-how and creative team to the task in hand: putting a render of the inside of the jet on to the outside, or at least a full-size wrapon a one-to-one scale model. Wrapping a full-scale render around a jet isn't what we usually do so we were really excited to be involved.
At Lightworks we don't just develop visualisation software, our creative team undertake diverse projects to create stunning and engaging visuals for companies across different industries. As Eclipse Aerospace (part of One Aviation)use Siemens NX Product Design (NX) - our technology, Iray®+, is the integrated rendering engine - it made sense for our creative team to work with them to extend, and enhance, their NX visuals.
We combined the photorealism available in NX with styling and details similar to those found in technical drawings. We used a range of effects and techniques to highlight individual features making it easier to distinguish specific components; HDRI environments, physically based lighting and materials were combined with a lot of creative know-how to bring this intricate design to life and make sure that the final renders were both beautiful and accurate.
