With a airplane photographic and metric survey, and using blue prints, others photographs and videos, integral 3D modeling of the plane was carried out. Next the application of materials, lights and environments for renders was developed.
The renders, after post-production for still images and compilation / encoding / post-production for animation are finally ready to be published.
Cessna Citation III outside
Fifty years after the first flight, more than 7,500 Citations have been delivered.
It was designed for optimal speed, utilized light weight composites and smooth surfaces to cut down on drag, and featured an entirely new fuselage mated to a super-critical swept back wing and a T-Tail.
Cessna Citation III outside 3D / CGI: realistic simulation in still image and video animation.
Allows avoiding the costs, economic and environmental, of running a real photoshoot: at least, 2 airplanes, 2 crews, a photographer with a professional equipment and adequate weather conditions.
Bringing all these requirements together at the same time is expensive and not always easy.
The real one
The real Cessna Citation III N444CW at Oshkosh Wittman Regional Airport OSH/KOSH at 15.04.2020.
This aircraft was the model of inspiration for the development of the project – to be able to faithfully reproduce the painting design and to obtain images and videos of the 3D model with a high level of reliability.
In experiment 1, it tried to faithfully reproduce the painting design of the real aircraft.
In experiment 2, a different painting design was created, in order to test the complexity and the time associated with the change.
