See what we can do

A brief overview


We offer a full 3D pipeline producing both motion graphic and photo realistic styles from modelled props or 3D CAD import files.

Advanced

Advanced capabilities include 360° interactive product spins, machine rigging, crowd simulations, geo (real world) data import and fluid simulations.

Characters

Our skillset includes character design, rigging and animation supported using mocap data where appropriate.

Product animation


Still images and animations of your products using CAD export files and / or photographs. Visuals for a product showcase, packshots, mock-ups, walkthroughs and demonstrations ideal for print advertising, web and social use or television commercials especially prior to product launch.

3D CAD data

Photo realistic 3D video animation services utilising native CAD data with ghosting, exploded and sectional views.

All platforms

Including SolidWorks, Autodesk Inventor, ProE/Creo, Solid Edge, UG NX, Catia, AutoCAD, Revit, Navisworks, Rhino.

High-end technical animation


Detailed technical, mechanical, industrial process and engineering animation. Suitable for any industrial or mechanical engineering sector including oil and gas, renewables, nuclear, chemicals and petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, mining, refining, marine and subsea, transportation and infrastructure, manufacturing and industrial automation, automotive design and defence.

Technical expertise

Our founder offers an engineering background derived from a degree in aeronautical engineering at Imperial College and over 11 years of motorsport experience at the highest level.

Technical drawings

We're familiar with interpreting technical drawings to check component dimensions and assembly layouts.

3D motion graphics


Full impact, story led 3D motion graphics created in a graphic style utilising all the tools at our disposal including dedicated particle systems and custom render engines.

Our skillset includes character design, rigging and animation supported using mocap data where appropriate.

3D character animation


Believable and convincing 3D character animation – people, animals, aliens. Starting out as hand drawn sketches, we create the characters, their props and clothing, positioned in a T-pose ready for rigging and animating. We apply bones and muscle weighting during the rigging phase to create a natural motion and then create and apply textures.

Advanced animation

Complex animation using motion capture data (Mocap), manual keyframing or basic deformers for cost-effective cartoon character motion.

Mocap

We import motion capture data (Mocap) from our extensive library and blend the individual actions together to create a single fluid motion for a character. We manually keyframe any bespoke motions.

Photo realism


Depending on the level of photo realism required, we can apply brushed metal finishes, signs of wear, scratches, oil splotches, metal flecks and finger prints to textures.

Environments

Outdoor environments require detailed texturing and sculpting to provide a realistic look. We can import real world GEO data for many use cases; to create digital elevation models and city layouts, highly detailed 3D landscapes and real world terrain created using satellite imagery with waterways and road maps laid precisely over the terrain.

Real world lighting

We create materials for each component and light them virtually using real world and custom built HDR (High Dynamic Range) images and then optimise highlights and reflections.

3D modelling


Modelling of components, assemblies and real world elements from scratch to help tell your story.

Amazing environments

Incredible, high quality photo realistic and low poly cartoon environments designed for your characters.

Prop library

We have access to a significant library of props, from vehicles, buildings, electronics and furniture to trees and flowers from every corner of the globe.

Particles, fluids and gaseous simulations


Ideal for water, rain, oil, dust and contaminant flows. Animated oceans, lakes and rivers that look real.

Frost, ice and flames

We're comfortable using particles to generate complex frost and ice crystal growths and flame simulations.

Graphic overlays

We create and overlay graphics to indicate environment variables such as temperatures, pressure and flow direction.

Geo data import


Digital elevation models and city layouts using real world data. Highly detailed 3D landscapes and real world terrain created using satellite imagery. Waterways and road maps laid precisely over the terrain.

Real world locations

We can import relief maps, roadways, waterways and building distributions from real world locations.

Amazing environments

Incredible, high quality photo realistic and low poly cartoon environments designed for your characters.

Crowd simulations


Crowds that walk, run, navigate slopes, ride escalators, tackle moving walkways and climb stairs realistically. Perfect for visualisations, animations and illustrations.

Advanced

Full impact, story led 3D motion graphics created in a graphic style utilising all the tools at our disposal including dedicated particle systems and custom render engines.

Characters

Our skillset includes character design, rigging and animation supported using mocap data where appropriate.

Machine rigging


Many machines such as the boom, stick and bucket on an excavator require rigging. We set up a layer hierarchy with a set of constraints and controllers so that we can animate the machine quickly during the production process.

Interactive 3D


Build interactive 360 degree environments and product visualisations, drive ROI with 3D advertising and inform your customers with 3D product configurators.

Interactive 3D viewer

State of the art interactive website viewer for your 3D visualisations or 360 degree product spins. Create interactive 3D CAD and 360 degree product visualisations and animation. It’s time to modernise your marketing.

3D annotations

Point out key features and benefits using 3D annotations. We can add multiple annotations to the 3D viewer to drive engagement, inform your prospects and push them through your sales funnel.

Rendering


Rendering for 3D is much more time consuming than 2D. With a typical 25 frames per second, or 1500 frames per minute of animation, and with each frame typically taking from 5 to 20 minutes, rendering can be a time consuming process.

On-premise network rendering

For smaller jobs requiring less processing power or more relaxed deadlines, we use industry leading software to render multiple jobs across the local network, filling machine capacity as it becomes available or releasing it back to the creative team for heavy design work.

Flexible off-premise processing power

We use the same on-promise network platform to commission one, hundreds or even thousands of server instances simultaneously across Amazon EC2 enabling us to increase or decrease capacity within minutes.
