Are there any other benefits to CGI architectural walkthroughs? The beauty of animation is that you can use it for many different communications. One of the main benefits it that it allows for content to be created where live action is limited or not possible. You can use animation and CGI to create certain things you may not have at your disposal, or even take things apart to show the detailing of an object for your audiences closer inspection if needed. Are these walkthroughs interactive? With the use of 360 degree video technology, you can make them interactive. This technology is very similar to Google Street Map. Using the CGI models as 360 images, a client can click around the rooms to see what it is they exactly want to see.
