An Alternative to Modelling Photoshoots
Expensive photoshoots have now been replaced by several new technologies. They leverage computer generated graphics to accomplish photoshoots that otherwise require heavy production cost. Images produced by the software are at par with traditional photoshoots.
Popular in the industry, TRI3D is one such company with the software designed for draping garments onto a model with their new age technological solution.
The company has developed ‘digital draping technology’ that is capable of converting flat images of garments and fabrics into photorealistic 3D images on models, mannequins and creative representations.
An economical solution to expensive photoshoots with no requirement of actual physical human models and production crew to create images for cataloging and marketing purposes.
A picture of a flat piece of a saree/fabric is automatically draped onto a model with unchallenged realism. Be it the photo of one of an unstitched fabric, the software will not only ‘stitch’ the fabric but also visualize it as a saree/finished garment draped onto a model, in a variety of poses, thereby realising the potential of the fabric. The painstaking task of arranging a day-long photoshoot with models having to constantly change in and out of sarees is easily bypassed. The desired image is generated in a matter of 5 minutes with few clicks. You can get sarees digitised in Tri3D with just half the cost of a photoshoot! You save a lot of time as compared to 1 hour in case of modelling photoshoots. So there is no such limit as 50 sarees a day.
