Sketchup Architectural Interior Visualization to Virtual Reality Video experience using Cinema 4D, After Effects, Mettle’s Skybox Studio and CV-VRCam

In this tutorial series, we’ll explore the process of creating a 360 degree VR video. that uses Sketch & Toon for non-photorealistic rendering. VR is ideally suited to architecture and real estate because it allows the viewer to see the space as it would really exist, before any work is done and without the expense of furnishing a model home. In this case, we’ll animate Sketch & Toon to introduce various elements - much like you might see in a home renovation TV show.

In previous tutorials we’ve shown how to render Virtual Reality using third-party render engines or Cineversity’s own CV-VRCam plugin. Sketch & Toon is a special render engine within Cinema 4D that doesn’t use raytracing, so it isn’t supported by the CV-VRCam plugin. In order to achieve a 360 degree render using Sketch & Toon, we’ll utilize the Skybox Studio After Effects plugin from Mettle. This is a great plugin that opens up lots of possibilities for compositing 360 video, so I’d recommend it to any After Effects user exploring Virtual Reality.

Finally, we’ll create a photorealistic render of the kitchen using CV-VRCam, and use compositing techniques in After Effects to create an animation based on a single rendered frame.

En este tutorial de Cineversity, aprenderá cómo transformar una cocina Sketchup de la Galería 3D en un vídeo VR de 360 grados de inmersión, utilizando Cinema 4D, Cineware para After Effects, y Mettle Skybox Studio plug-in para After efects. VR es ideal para la arquitectura y los bienes raíces, porque permite al espectador ver el espacio, ya que existiría realmente antes de realizar cualquier trabajo y sin el costo de amoblar una casa modelo. Cinema 4D y Sketch & Toon nos permiten hacer una línea realista sin foto vista del trazado de la cocina. Vamos a animar esas líneas para hacer que parezca como si estuvieran siendo atraídas al rededor del espectador. Para hacer que un vídeo 360 de grados, usaremos Mettle Skybox Estudio para After Effects. Skybox Studio utiliza Cineware para renderizar la escena en todas direcciones, y crear una proyección equirectangular que se puede ver en 360 grados VR en YouTube o Facebook Vamos a explorar técnicas sencillas para mejorar los materiales, iluminación y opciones de render para crear un mundo más realista de la imagen, que vamos a realizar el procesamiento con CV-VRCAM y compuesta en After Effects con líneas Sketch & Toon. Por favor, únanse a mí en Cineversity.com , a medida que visualizamos la realidad virtual de esta nueva cocina.
- In this Cineversity tutorial series, you'll learn how to transform a Sketchup kitchen from 3D Warehouse into an immersive 360 degree VR video, using Cinema 4D, Cineware for After Effects, and Mettle Skybox Studio plugin for After Effects. VR is ideally suited to architecture and real estate, because it allows the viewer to see the space as it would really exist before any work is done and without the expense of furnishing a modeled home. Cinema 4D Sketch & Toon render engine allows us to render a non-photo realistic line drawn view of the kitchen. We'll animate those lines to make it appear as though they're being drawn all around the viewer. To render a 360 degree video, we'll use Mettle Skybox Studio for After Effects. Skybox Studio uses Cineware to render the scene in all directions, and create an equirectangular projection that can be viewed in 360 degree VR on YouTube or Facebook. We'll explore simple techniques to improve the materials, lighting, and render options to create a more photo realistic image, which we'll render with CV-VRCam and composite in After Effects with the Sketch & Toon lines. Please join me at Cineversity.com as we cook up a virtual reality visualization of this new kitchen.
