Plans for redecoration

Hello everyone.
This is my first post to the Gallery.
After years of gathering useful tips here at the forum, I think it’s time to show something.
I have made a selection of images that do not contain any elements from Trimble, as I understand that is not allowed.

I am a musical composer and sound designer from Oslo, Norway, working mainly with feature films, both Norwegian and foreign.
My studio is located at an old factory site, lying on the bank of the river Akerselva, the river that traditionally separates the east side
from the west side of the city.
When the production closed down in 1988, the factory buildings rapidly became popular with film-makers and media producers.
Old factories have high ceilings and ceiling height is of great value in the film industry.
In my studio the ceiling height is only 6,5 meters, but some of the other studios on the premises have up to 16 meters high ceilings.

The part of the factory where my studio is situated, is at the outskirts of the factory site, in the only building lying on
the west side of the river. I’m not sure what was produced here, but the factory initially produced steam engines and
turbines before it became a highly specialised heavy industry company, with a good reputation in the world market.
This is a quiet area of the city, with the river on one side, and a great park on the other.

Here is a somewhat idyllic rendering of the exterior, but it's not far from reality:


The plan is reconstructed from the original drawings that were made with X-Cad on an Amiga 3000 T in 2002, and the purpose
of this reconstruction is to pre-visualise different ways to redecorate and optimise the facilities.
So far this is my favourite plan, but I think there might still be room for some improvements.




Main entrance


The lounge, what meets the eye when you enter the studio.


The ground floor is 90 cm beneath ground level.


The Kitchen


The messanine


Entrance to the maintenance room and the mix stage


The maintenance room under the customer area of the mixing stage


The mix stage as seen from the front


The mix stage as seen from the rear


Seating



Stdudio seen from the parking lot.



I will present the rest of the production suite in a while.

Re: Plans for redecoration

Very nice ! Thanks for sharing smile
From the production to viewing the results of your work, you seem to have everything at reach to produce the sound of great movies. The stairs with steps of different sizes catched my eyes and I wonder how practical it is or not...

By the way, it's not a problem to include Trimble 3D Warehouse stuff in the renderings you create, it's just that you shouldn't distribute the sh3d file that contains them because it would become some kind of redistribution of the original 3D models, something that Trimble doesn't allow. Hope you'll understand the difference!

Impressive! There are some very nice renderings here, and it all looks very professional.

And you had an Amiga 3000!
I inherited an Amiga 1000 from my older brother when I was ten. I loved that computer!

Look forward to seeing the rest of your studio.

Re: Plans for redecoration

@Xiste,

Tell us, what are the used parameters for your pictures ?
Size of pictures ?
Time of calculation ?
Size of sh3d file ?

Re: Plans for redecoration

Puybaret,

I understand what you mean about the stairs. It is probably a mixture of optical distortion and an unfortunate unplanned resizing that has caused the stairs to appear with different step sizes. In reality, all steps are the same.
I'm actually a bit proud of the construction. There were those who told me the stairs would not hold for very long, but after 14 years, they are still tip-top.
Here is a picture ( a real photo), also showing why I need to redecorate and clean up the lounge.



By the way, it's not a problem to include Trimble 3D Warehouse stuff in the renderings you create, it's just that you shouldn't distribute the sh3d file that contains them because it would become some kind of redistribution of the original 3D models, something that Trimble doesn't allow. Hope you'll understand the difference!


Yes, I understand the difference.
So that means that one can extract a 3D model from a file created with the HTML5-creator?

A thing to keep in mind is that models you can find in the Trimble Warehouse do not necessarily belong to neither Trimble nor the uploader. They might in fact be stolen property. If you search for something on Trimble, you will frequently come across identical models that are uploaded by different persons, all appearing to be the rightful owner and creator.
Take this chair , that obviously belongs to Mr. Miller, and compare it with this chair that is published on the Trimble Warehouse. There's no difference. It is the same model. This is only one example.
Numerous object in the Trimble Warehouse are just stolen copies of 3D-models that are available for download on other websites. How can Trimble tell wether you downloaded the stolen model distributed by Trimble, or downloaded the legal original?

Trimble encourages manufacturers to view and distribute their 3D models in 3DWarehouse. The most obvious reason for a manufacturer to produce and distribute 3D models of their products, must be that architects, designers, interior decorators, etc. shall be able to use them; to modify and adapt these models and use them as they see fit.
Redistribution of these models will clearly be in the interest of the manufacturers.

I have linked here to the HTML5-model ( as a test)
The rack-mount rail I have downloaded from Trimble, which is shown in the opening picture, is most probably stolen from this site. I will of course replace them if Trimble asks me to. wink

I trust you to delete this link if you find it to be violating the rules of the forum.

Re: Plans for redecoration

Cec, Thank you!

I have actually used the terrain you so generously gave away, in order to create a more interesting view outside the windows.

I was actually a beta-tester for Commodore Norway from 1986, and I can reveal that the first digitally created Dolby Stereo soundtrack on a Norwegian feature film, (Changelings – Byttinger -1990) was done by me, using the Amiga as my only DAW.

The parameters. If you mean the settings, they vary a lot. Normally I use the default settings for quality 4 ; Blackman-Harris and Bucket, but for some of the pictures I have used Gaussian instead of Blackman-Harris. I find it to be a bit smoother.
The antiAliasing setting is normally 1/2, but when i have reflective surfaces I increase it to 3/4.

The images are originally rendered 1440 pixels wide. The height varies. I have downscaled the images to 960 px width ( with one accidental exception).

The rendering time varies both with the settings and with the renderer. With the default renderer it takes between 5 - 10 minutes, but using the optional Simple Photo Renderer, it takes 15 -30 minutes. It might have something to do with the different way the bucket size is handled. The studio has a rendering farm with several Mac Pro 12-core computers connected with fiber-optical cables.
When I use the default renderer, the rendering window is entirely covered by small different colored buckets, but when using the optional renderer, the buckets are a lot bigger and fewer, and works slower. I found this out just by chance, and I have not done any real testing of this. I prefer using the default renderer for interiors, and use the optional renderer for exteriors , since the enhance sky brightness sampling generally gives better results.

The largest SH3D-file is 417,4 MB , including the exteriors.
The work-file for the interior only, is 217,.1 MB.

The file used for the HTML5 is 55.7 MB

Hope this answers your questions.

Really a very nice way to present a complex construction. I suppose you used one-sided planes for the outer walls?

Re: Plans for redecoration

I love this place, especially the idea of the large four square windows. It is very interesting, very esthetic.

Why didn't I think of that.
I used the box that comes SH3D, and made only the front visible. The one sided square is of course a much better alternative.
