    very interesting!
    Photography wise, was this a full panoramic timelapse or very wide angle lens you used?
    Or did you use a chrome ball?
    Ive been thinking of trying something like this on a future project.

    I don’t know all I saw was strangely saturated skies with burnt out clouds… less market-speech like “The use of timelapse imagery lends itself perfectly to architectural visualisation” and let the public decide if it’s perfect or not 😛

    is this a place for critique? -i’m not so impressed. i find the interior lights way too high in illumination level, they really burn out.
    And the camera movements are kinda boring, it makes the whole idea of animation superfluous. 5 good stills could have given a better idea of the house.
    just my 2 cents.

    I used a 180d fisheye that produces a circle on the aps sensor.

    As you probably know time and resources are not unlimited… I did this more as a proof of concept than a finished product. I agree that much more adjustment/development can be done to lighting levels/camera movement/entourage. It was simply something I had never seen done and was curious if an animated dome IBL work-flow would be successful… Other than the (blown-out) interior lights there are no other light sources.

  • This type of approach looks promising. I have been 100% certain that image based lighting would revolutionize architectural visualization (as “simple” GI did when the first versions of vray and brazil came out). However it’s already been around for a few years but it is still not nearly as used as I thought it would be.

    Thanks for sharing this (as well as all the other cg related articles on your blog).

    Best regards,
    Alex
