Who are PICT8 ? PICT8 were formed in 1994, specialising in the creation of accurate CAD Models, Rendered Images, Animations and Interactive Presentations. We work worldwide for Architects, Engineers, Designers and others in the Design & Construction Industry, to create 100% accurate and aesthetically precise visualisations. Our principal focus is on artistic excellence.
Please use the navigation strip above to explore the Project Galleries (most recent images are on pages 1-4 coloured blue). We hope you enjoy our Web-Site.

3D modelling . . . the foundation of the visualisation is the wire-frame model. We build wire-frame models from your CAD data or even your hand drawn sketches. For existing buildings and products we survey the Site, or take professional photographs. We have an extensive library of of architectural elements, furniture, vehicles, trees and plants etc. to help us work more quickly.

rendering . . . creating the final image from the wire-frame. Scene lighting, materials, colours and textures are matched precisely to your specifications (we have a reference library of over 10,000 materials and patterns and can create new ones digitally or by scanning). Colours are matched to any reference system (RAL, BS, Pantone etc.) as required. High-res images are generated for Stills and Photo-Montages, lower-res images are generated for Web Images, Animations and 360 Panoramas.

photo-montage . . . the seamless merging of a VR rendered image with an existing photograph to create an effective visual image of a Product or Building in-situ.

360 panoramas . . . real-time 360 degree sphere (horizontally and vertically) Panoramas of your proposals. These are very impressive to Clients and are very small files suitable for running on almost any laptop, PC or website. Go to gallery page 3 (on the navigation strip above) to see samples.

animation . . . a series of still images at 25fps creates a animated movie! Fly-through or walk-through your designs, and view the results on your laptop or PC (from a CD-ROM) or on your TV (on VHS or DVD). Go to gallery page 4 (on the navigation strip above) to see samples.

multimedia . . . we can provide all of your multimedia content for your presentations. Alternatively, we can produce complete Multimedia Presentation for you! E-mail or call with your requirements for your next project presentation.

interactive presentations . . . rendered Still images, Animations and 360 Panoramas can be integrated in an Interactive Presentation. This allows linking from scene-to-scene, room to room, view to view etc. in a fully customisable way.

web sites . . . rendered Still images, Animations and 360 Panoramas can be tailored for integration with your company Website or Intranet. We are also happy to design and produce websites.

CD-ROM's & DVD's . . . we use the latest CD-ROM & DVD authoring software and production hardware. All finished productions can be supplied on any specified CD-ROM or DVD formats.

TV & video . . . Still images can be presentated in a slide-show format for transfer to video . Stills and Animations can be produced for supply to Clients on PAL / NTSC, SVHS / Betacam video-formats.

contact . . . basic contact details are at the foot of the screen, however if you wish to email a specific team member then click on their photo below! Do please send us an e-mail and let us know what you think of our site! Alternatively, you may telephone, fax, write, or call in person. We would love to hear from you on any topic no matter how trivial.

toys . . . Click on the laptop image above to see some examples of 3D java applets. These are extremely interesting and fun to play around with. Download them and tweak the parameters to try-out your own text and images. Please e-mail us to let us know of any applets which we might find interesting, or simply e-mail with any comments or queries. NB : Java is installed by default on current MSIE & Netscape browsers, however if you are running an older browser or have Java switched off then these applets may not work! If you attempt to launch any applets you may see nothing, or you may crash your machine!




exterior views . . . click on the image above to see examples of some of our images of building exteriors, including images by day, at night, and photo-montages (computer images combined with photographs). Please email us with any queries or comments.



interior views . . . click on the image below to see examples of some of our images of building and room interiors. Images can be produced to accurately illustrate various lighting scenarios, by daylight, moonlight, and any conceivable artificial lighting condition.




360 Panoramas . . . 360 degree 'full-sphere' real-time panoramas are a very impressive way to view rendered VR models! These are extremely simple to operate and allow apparent 'real time' viewing of the model from any viewpoint. Panoramas may be embedded into Word Documents, Powerpoint and Director Presentations and web pages. To view Panoramas directly within web pages it is necessary to download a browser 'plug-in', however as this is a 2MB download, we offer a separate standalone viewer.exe at 300kb. Download the viewer then click the image above to pick a pan file to view.




Animations . . . as well as single still images, we can render multiple images to create animations. Walk-through, fly-through, key-frame and kinetic animations can all be created (20 frames required per second of animation). Animations can be optimised to run a basic lap-top or fast PC as required. Higher resolution Animations (eg. PAL format) can be produced for output to SVHS or Betacam SP video formats. It is not possible to effectively demonstrate animations on a web-site but we have lots of sample animations on our demo CD-ROM, please send us an e-mail to request a copy.
