CULTURAL HERITAGE 3D RECONSTRUCTION
Cultural heritage preservation is one of the most important missions we have as human kind. Digital Unicorns takes part in this challenging task contributing with digital reconstructions, animations and illustrations.
Our ambition is to produce digital content that in its own small way could narrate the past, telling through images stories that were lost centuries ago.
The first stage is to analyse the current status of the building or ancient piece. Whether it is just little damaged or fully destroyed it is not a problem as long as there is sufficient documentation to start working on.
Every document is useful: photos, sketches, plans, survey analysis, 3D scans, historical texts.
We use all the documentation we have to reach for a level of detail as close as possible to the original piece. This stage requires a lot of communication between the professionals involved and regular reviews are crucial. When there is no sufficient information for an accurate reconstruction, an abstract approach is to be preferred.
ILLUSTRATION, ANIMATION, 3D MODEL EXPORT
The model is then completed with the proper materials, if known, and it is rendered and post-processed in form of still image or animation.
Texturing and export of the model is also possible for other purposes such as virtual reality.
