Hey everyone, RenderDave here to show you how photorealistic rendering made a difference for this small home office design.

When architects and interior designers work on a project in programs like Sketchup, Revit, or AutoCAD, the basic 3D models they create usually end up looking like a black-and-white line drawing. There’s nothing wrong with this, but it requires people to have a bit of imagination to understand what the project will look like in reality.

To make it slightly more realistic, the designer might add some basic colors to objects to help people understand what they are. For example, in the image below, wood is represented as brown, but this is still far from a realistic representation of the real thing.

Continuing their journey towards realism, the designer might add decorative items to the scene. This helps to show how the space would be used, but it still doesn’t look realistic.

The designers then might replace the colors with representations of materials, for example, the wood elements now have wood grain showing. This gets closer to realism, but it still looks like an old video game, and the lighting is not represented at all, which is an important part of this design.

Finally, we arrive at the ultimate design presentation – the photorealistic rendering.

This type of imagery can be so realistic that it often fools people into believing they’re looking at photography of a real space.

Photorealistic renderings appear to be real because they have finely detailed 3D modeling, high-quality materials, and proper lighting that creates shadows.

The result is a room that appears lived in, giving the clients a realistic understanding of what the project will look like when it’s built.
