Lorax Environmental understands that the ability to visualize processes, whether they be simple or complex processes, is paramount to communicating with clients, government officials, or the general population. To that end Lorax can develop two dimensional and three dimension animations to further describe processes and to develop a clear understanding of what is or may be occuring.

Animated sequences of rendered imagery provide dramatic, scientifically precise "fly-over" simulations that capture the public's attention while providing a visual aid to scientists attempting to understand or describe complex issues. Lorax has extensive expertise in the area of two and three-dimensional visualization of numerical model output as well as photo-realistic video production of actual and simulated environmental processes. Three-dimensional photorealistic renderings of mine site landscapes are achieved by combining elevation data with two-dimensional texture images.

Video production of computer generated renderings is based on Maya - a 3D computer software package that includes the following capabilities:

  • Modelling
  • Animation
  • Texturing
  • Dynamics
  • Lighting
  • Rendering
