On Set Visualisation
A virtual set walk is a VR or virtual camera experience that looks at a real or fictional environment visible in a specific sequence or shot. A digital 3D environment may consist of a real life built set or shooting location, a set with CG extensions or a full CG environment, it can be as contained or expansive as required. The environment can be viewed and explored to assess set design considerations or practical construction needs. Virtual cameras can be used to determine camera framing and lens choices. It is also an invaluable tool to assess spatial considerations for large or oversized CG characters and creatures, with models of these positioned within the 3D built set.
