CGI(Computer Generated Images)
CGI (computer generated images) are a great way of being able to imagine a building before it has been built. CGI has progressed greatly over the years and it is now becoming difficult to tell the different between a CGI image and a real photograph. With CGI you can now create a full virtual tour or produce standard still Images to help invisage your project. When put side by side with an actual virtual tour of a building, it can be a great website tool for showing off your project with a before & after showcase.
To enable us to create these images our CGI expert can work with you on the design ideas and help you get the project looking just how you would like.
