Pre-visualization of New Student Wellness and Recreation Center
A Student Wellness and Recreation Center was proposed for construction on the Purdue University Calumet Campus. An architecture firm developed plans and models for the Center and produced construction prints. A compelling visualization that is more understandable to public was needed to market the proposed Center and build support from decision makers and potential donors.
The architectural model was imported into Autodesk 3ds Max software and modified to create a 3D virtual flythrough of the facility. Detailed textures and lighting were applied to the environment. Animated camera paths provided a high-resolution photorealistic rendering of people enjoying the center.
This 3D video was presented to the Purdue Board of Trustees. It provided a communication tool for future planning. Stereoscopic 3D version of the video was produced for the CIVS Immersive Theater. It has been shown to many CIVS visitors as a visualization highlight.
