Augmented Reality – Why are we all missing the point?

I love Augmented Reality. I’ve been an advocate of this technology for several years now and I want to see it break through into the mainstream as much as anybody. I suppose that’s why I’m growing more frustrated by lack of progress made by the people charged with the responsibility of bringing it to the masses – the developers, content creators Read More

VR Nausea – Is it really that difficult to fix?

Virtual Reality is taking a hold, there’s no doubt about that. With YouTube’s recent support for 360º videos, we can now experience to some degree what it’s like to jump from an aircraft, surf the waves or take on the rocky terrain of a mountain bike course. As a result, a growing army of curious VR enthusiasts are playing these Read More

In order to do this, we need to look at the very core of what keeps us ticking – our clients and their needs. The visuals we create Read More

Those with a keen interest in digital technology will undoubtedly be aware of Augmented Reality and it’s rise into the public domain over the last few years.

Roll with it…Matching CGI to live video

Amongst the main weapons in the armoury of developers looking to gain planning consent, the photomontage CGI is proving to be a hit. These images provide a valuable insight into how a development will sit in its true context, and how, hopefully, environmental impact can be kept to a minimum. They’re far more digestible to a planning committee Read More

We’re Hiring!…

It’s been pretty busy here at CGEye in the last few months, and due to our ever-expanding workload we’re looking to hire a new CG Artist to join our team. We pride ourselves on nurturing young talent, so we would like to hear from any recent graduates who would like to join the world of Archviz, working with Read More

Christmas E-Card 2013

Over the past few years we’ve been producing interactive Christmas E-cards for a bit of festive fun.

Our first attempt started off with Rob volunteering to produce one as an alternative to the regular physical Christmas cards we’d Read More
