Animated Colourways

Learn about 3D animated colourways and its applications.

WHAT ARE 3D ANIMATED COLOURWAYS?

In the context of 3D animation and rendering, “colourways” typically refer to the different colour schemes or variants that can be applied to a 3D model of a product or object. By using 3D animated colourways, we can dynamically showcase a product in multiple variations of colours and finishes, providing a visual representation of all available options without the need to create physical prototypes.

This technique is especially beneficial in industries such as fashion, interior design, and consumer goods, where visualising an item in different styles or colours can significantly enhance the decision-making process for buyers. 3D animated colourways allow us to effectively communicate the aesthetic and functional choices of a product, enabling clients and customers to explore all possibilities in an engaging and interactive manner.

WHO USES 3D ANIMATED COLOURWAYS?

At XO3D, we are equipped to support these diverse applications, creating tailored 3D animations that enhance the effectiveness of educational content across these sectors.

Designers and retailers use 3D animated colourways to showcase clothing and accessories in various colours and patterns. This allows customers to see how a garment looks in different styles without the need for physical samples.

Car manufacturers present different colour options and customisations for vehicle exteriors and interiors using 3D animations. This helps buyers visualise their choices in a realistic setting.

Companies use 3D animations to demonstrate furniture in different finishes and fabrics, aiding customers in making informed decisions about how items will look in their personal or professional spaces.

Manufacturers of devices like smartphones, laptops, and wearable technology offer animated previews of their products in various colours and finishes, enhancing consumer engagement and personalisation options.

Similar to fashion, footwear brands use 3D animations to display shoes in multiple colourways. This technology is especially useful in online retail, where physical product interaction is not possible.

Brands that produce items such as bicycles, fitness equipment, and sporting goods utilise 3D animated colourways to highlight different design options and encourage customisation among consumers.

BENEFITS OF 3D ANIMATED COLOURWAYS

Using animated colourways offers numerous advantages across various stages of product development, marketing, and sales. These benefits demonstrate how animated colourways can be a powerful tool for enhancing product presentations, improving customer engagement, and streamlining production processes. Here are eight significant advantages:

Animated colourways provide a realistic representation of products in different colours and finishes, allowing potential buyers to better visualise their options and make informed choices.

By using 3D animations, companies can significantly reduce the costs associated with producing multiple physical prototypes. This is particularly advantageous in industries where customisation and colour options are abundant.

Without the need to create physical samples for each variant, products can be marketed much faster. 3D animations allow for immediate adjustments and presentations of new colourways without delays.

Offering a visual and interactive selection of colourways can enhance the customer experience, leading to higher engagement and potentially increasing sales as customers are more likely to find a product that meets their preferences.

For e-commerce, animated colourways provide a dynamic and detailed view of products, which can compensate for the inability of customers to physically examine products, thus boosting consumer confidence in online purchases.

Animated colourways facilitate the showcasing of customisable options to customers, allowing them to see a tailored product before making a purchase. This can be a key differentiator in competitive markets.

Animated colourways can be used in marketing campaigns to create more engaging and visually appealing content. They help in demonstrating product versatility and features in a compelling way.

By reducing the need for physical samples, 3D animated colourways contribute to sustainability efforts. This reduction in physical production means less waste and a smaller environmental footprint, aligning with eco-friendly business practices.

HOW ARE 3D ANIMATED COLOURWAYS CREATED?

Design Conceptualisation

Initially, a detailed 3D model of the product is created using specialised software, capturing all physical dimensions and features.

STEP 01

Texture and Material Mapping

Textures and materials are then applied to the 3D model to simulate different surfaces and finishes, ensuring they look realistic.

STEP 02

Colourway Application

Various colour schemes are applied to the model, allowing each variant to be visualised in multiple hues and patterns.

STEP 03

Animation and Rendering

Finally, the model is animated to showcase the product from different angles and in different lighting conditions, and rendered to produce high-quality visuals for display.

STEP 04

Firstly, to begin a project, clients provide all the information required. For product visualisations, we require things such as drawings, design specifications, sketches, mood boards or other type of information you may have.

To clarify, we will check all of the content the clients have provided and ask for more details if necessary. In addition, a meeting, phone call or Teams call is always beneficial. To sum up, this helps avoid any misconception and allows us to shorten turnaround times for 3D animation services.

We start working as soon as we understand all of the details the task requires, and time frames have been agreed by both parties. Our 3D artists keep in constant contact with the clients throughout this process, with regular updates.

After that, we present animated grey previews to you for comments and review and finally make the adjustments.

The client accepts the drafts for final rendering.

Finally, we present the 3D animation, after we have completed post-production in high resolution with full quality lighting, reflections, glossiness, and materials.
