In 2018, we were approached by the company Austin AirBox with the hope that we could help them produce several photo-realistic 3D product renderings featuring their air purifier product. The key difference with this project was that they didn't want standard "white background" renderings, but rather "lifestyle" renderings showcasing the product staged in real world environments. When backgrounds and environments come into play there are several ways to go about handling the production. Do we create custom 3D environments, composite renderings into stock photography, or utilize pre-existing 3D environments? Each option has their own pro's and con's and after evaluating their specific needs, we decided to purchase pre-existing 3D interior environments from turbosquid.com. Once the environments were picked out we created the AirBox 3D asset from the provided photographic reference and rendered out several variations of the product situated in multiple environments with multiple different finishes.
