How to get the best out of your 3d renderer

Red Barn's rendering experts are here to do their very best to create a stunning 3d image of your design!

You can help us to get it right in the shortest time possible by supplying us with the best information you can find. If you want us to "paint" you a realisic visualization of what you have in your mind you need to give us as much as you can. However, there are times when our clients want us to come up with ideas, we will gladly do so, all you need to say is "here is the room, go wild" you never know what you might get!

If you have specific requirements it's best to follow these tips and tricks for your rendering.

Red Barn made a 3d model and applied the wood that he specified and we got it right first time!

If you can't draw this well, don't worry we can still understand!

Textures and colours - supply the highest resolution images you can

Textures and colours are crucial to a rendering. Every computer screen is different, it is almost impossible for us to see EXACTLY what you see on your screen, that is why it is best to send us image samples of your colour or textures.

If you say, make it wood, we will try to blend a wood into the room, but then, personal taste comes into it and we can get stuck for hours trying to imagine what type of wood you are visualizing!

Material samples, send us the biggest images you can. Creating realistic images requires us to use high resolutions, in layman's terms that means BIG images. You can really help your renderer by sending textures in high resolution if you can!

You get out what you put in.


Even though we are working in virtual reality, the truth is the same as in real life. You get out what you put in.

We can make a photoreal image for you from our imagination, but its your imagination we want to visualize. To help your renderer, and avoid confusion or guess work, it would be hugely advantageous if you send us plenty of details.
