A 3D walkthrough is a digital simulation that allows users to explore a virtual environment in a first-person perspective, as if they were physically walking through the space. It is commonly used in architecture, real estate, and interior design industries to provide clients with a realistic preview of a space before it is constructed or renovated.
The process of creating a 3D walkthrough involves creating a 3D model of the space, texturing and lighting the model, and animating a camera to move through the space in a natural and fluid manner. The final product is typically rendered as a video that the user can interact with, controlling their movement and direction through the space.
To create a 3D walkthrough, 3D modeling software such as 3ds Max or Blender is commonly used, along with rendering software such as V-Ray or Lumion. The process requires a high level of skill and attention to detail, as the goal is to create a highly realistic and immersive simulation of the space.
