Using customized licensed 3d content
The images featured in this portfolio depend on the work of a whole community of content providers, plugin and addon creators and software developers.
The use of licensed content in computer graphics productions offers the chance to lower the amount of time and costs needed for each project.
In specialised software morphs and shaders are used to achieve a custom designed unique look for all licensed 3d models in a reasonable time - cost relationship.
With huge libraries of 3d content allready available there are endless possibilities to combine assets to create the desired image.
