Virtual Reality vs Film: What Are the Benefits of Each When Presenting Building Designs?


夸张的虚拟手法混合真实场景融入到不断进化的视觉方式激起了关于我们建筑预览的话题。位于洛杉矶的Shimahara Illustration 公司探讨了新技术与传统CG电影动画的基本差异性。


那么,问题来了:谁对故事情节负责? 在虚拟世界中,用户创造故事,虽然只是在所制作的场景中漫步。VR可能被看作是一系列的探索发现而不是真正的有序列的剧情创作。无论如何,这与影片式的叙述有着截然不同的差别。在影片里或者动画里,场景被创作出来,并加入音乐还有一系列的意向给观众传递某些信息。

Virtual, Augmented, and Mixed-Reality add to an evolving spectrum of visualization tools that have invigorated the dialogue around how we pre-experience architecture. Los Angeles-based Shimahara Illustration discusses a fundamental difference between these new technologies and traditional CG film/animation.
Much of the fascination with VR/AR/MR lies in the shifting authorship of experience. The audience is now in control of the Mise-en-scène which yields a categorically different experience than when viewing a film. The reason is simple: with VR you have a user; with film you have an auteur.
The distinction comes down to the question: who is responsible for producing the narrative? Within virtual reality the user is the one creating the story, albeit as a kind of meandering by-product of exploration. The VR experience might be thought of more as a process of discovery than of actual story-making in a linear sense. In any case, it is in sharp contrast with the cinematic choreography offered by the filmmaker’s work. With a film or animation scenes are composed, sequenced, and timed to music with the collective intention of leading an audience towards a specific message.

It’s important to resist placing a value outright on one option over the other, but instead to keep the distinction of authorship in mind in order to help match the right tool with a given situation. There is likely a moment along any building design schedule when it would be valuable to allow the audience to preview a space with the kind of freedom and neutrality that VR affords. Yet, for the same building there are instances when a more precise set of ideas are important to communicate, like branding, capital campaigns, or winning the commission in the first place. Here, traditional animation might provide the appropriate solution.
Deployment is another factor to keep in mind when comparing virtual reality to an architectural film or animation. At the moment, many would-be users are not set up to support a robust VR experience which can limit deployment to a few physical locations, while CG films and animations are ubiquitous and shared routinely via online links and social media. Again, hold snap judgments on either option, for if it's true that the medium is the message then an undercurrent of value may run beneath each choice (ie. perception of exclusivity versus dependability; engaging face time with a client versus widespread and efficient accessibility).
