Lighting Design Visualization
Lighting levels and layout cannot describe a lighting design in-situ. At AES Engineering we use traditional rendering techniques as well as gaming engine technology to offer our clients an enhanced, interactive, visual experience of our lighting designs in the architectural space. By combining high-resolution finishes with complex lighting and shadowing, we produce videos and virtual reality (VR) experiences that convey mood and emotion. These visualizations clarify the design intent and help clients buy into innovative lighting designs.
