Applications: Simulate the real world

3.-Simulation in crime-scene-reconstruction, law enforcement training, stage applications among others.

Crime Scene reconstruction

The vibrant world of criminal investigation depends upon new technologies to decipher the exact way on how a crime has been committed. Part of the work of attorneys and investigators is to reenact and revisit the scene of the crimes. Following bullet trajectories, movements and general conditions of the scene among others, are main objectives of the research. When it’s time to present findings to a jury, two-dimensional photographs usually feel short to describe with exactitude what occurred on the spot, often there is a demand for accurate visual presentations. Crime Scene Interactive is a workflow that allows to make interactive courtroom exhibits through the use of SketchUp, Blender  or the Unity 3D game engine, combined with the capabilities of a powerful editor, the 3D information on the scene can become an accurate experience.

For who:

-Police & court
-Criminal investigation departments
-Criminal psychologist


User benefits:

-Supernatural walk through in crime scenes in 3D
-It works within floor plans, keeping the orientation at all times
-Helps in the evaluation and reconstruction of situations
-Fast preparation of interactive 3D apps. No technical background needed

Virtual Training , Law Enforcement

Virtual situations and vivid 3D experiences can accelerate the learning process. Police usually has not the time, nor the financial resources, to undertake expensive trainings. The possibility of incorporating highly real 3D visualization solves both problems, on one side the time of exposure to the situation for an concrete knowledge acquisition diminishes while the effectivity increases. On the other side, the price for the training reduces considerably augmenting the capabilities of the law enforcement reaction. 3D experience makes easy to understand, learn and react. The strategical thought is also developed during the trainings.

For who:

-Fire brigade
-Every branch of law enforcement who needs simulation of -real situations


User benefits:

-Supernatural walk through in situations, buildings. Great experience
-Better orientation in big files. Works with floor plans to keep the orientation.
-Easy to valuate and reconstruct situations highly effective for training purpose
-Make decisions on the spot and set up strategical maneuvers
-Fast preparation of interactive 3D apps. No technical background needed
-Cost saving. Reducing the risk of planing mistakes and penalties

Digital Movie Set Design, Virtual Set Construction, stage design (theater), In applied arts for exhibition and work planning.

The process of selecting, designing, adapting to, or modifying the space for a play, an art exhibition, an installation or a film is very complex. From planning to execution the visualization is key to a good final outcome. The methodology to approach to space including the allocation, use or absence of stagecraft elements or exhibition devices, as well as the physical structure and all its components, are key to the development of the pieces. Set construction and exhibition planning are processes during which is necessary to activate an accurate positioning of geometrical objects, the possibility to create virtual environment previous to the setting up, the shooting or the exhibition montage, reduces the costs dramatically. 3D visualizations of the possible space and more over, solving problems on the spot as illumination decisions, are fundamental . Artists, filmmakers, stage designers and museographers often have a clear mental image of the space composition they are designing, but find it tedious to build intended prototypes with current mouse and keyboard interfaces. Visiting the designed space as 3D experience is not only helpful but some times mandatory.

For who:

-Set construction artists
-Film and Television
-Movie Set Designer
-Digital Entertainment


user benefits:

-Supernatural walk through within spaces. Great and smooth experience
-Better orientation in big files. Works with floor plans to keep the orientation to Never get lost in 3D data anymore
-Helps to evaluate, emulate, reconstruct and create situations
-See sets and spaces before they become real and make decisions on the spot
-Fast preparation of interactive 3D apps. No technical background needed
-Reconstruct things from the past like archeological settings
