With the participation of the Moscow Kremlin museums and support of the Federal Protective Service the ITL company has worked out a new multimedia interactive product which has no analogues.
WORK AT THE PRODUCT
How was the product made?
This question is asked by everyone who got familiar with the working 3D models of the valuables from the Diamond Fund.
Here we show you the stages of the work.
The first stage.
At the first stage photos and video of all the items of the famous collection were taken on the premises of the Diamond Fund of Russia.
Each exhibit was removed from under the glass case and placed on a special object table.
Photography was conducted in various lighting, in various modes using different cameras, objectives and filters.
This work took us more than 6 months.
Photography of some of the jewels has been conducted up to now because the process of modeling aroused some questions which neither we nor specialists could foresee.
Here are some photographs demonstrating the first stage of the work.
The second stage.
Studying the photographs, elucidation of geometry of jewels, peculiarities of stone faceting.
The third stage.
The most exact 3D geometric reproduction of the object’s form.
“Geometry” is reproduced with the help of the so called polygons – small triangles which are “glued” around the jewel.
We did our best to reproduce not only geometry of the object, but also fantasticality of the way the unique stones were cut, due to which the amount of polygons becomes enormous.
It is unreal to reproduce them with the help of one picture-screenshot.
But a somewhat simpler version of geometry of the Grand imperial crown is seen in these screenshots.
The forth stage.
Developing the materials of the jewels taking into account their physical and optical properties.
Every stone – be it a sapphire, an emerald, a ruby or a diamond – has its own physical characteristics.
Much depends on the way the stones are cut and fastened, on a substrate of color foil which was often used by jewelers.
The initial programs worked out at the first stage had to be adjusted to every object.
Both the programmers and the Gohkran specialists paid special attention to the luster – a stone’s sparkle, proportional to the degree of light refraction from its surface.
The stone owes its luster to its hardness, purity and quality of polishing.
We thoroughly considered and worked over various kinds of luster:
The fifth stage.
The final, most labor-intensive stage:
Everything is simple and easy. There are no secrets.
Here is a working (contracted) version of the interface.
Unfortunately, the Internet can not reproduce the quality of the pictures.
The soundtrack and the photographs are not quite ready yet, and above all – you will not be free to examine the jewels.
While it is the freedom of handling the jewels, the possibility to inspect them from any angle is the main component of our Product.
However this demo-reel can still give you a general idea how to work with the Product.
All this is done to enable you not only to see the valuables from the Diamond Fund Collection, but to examine every jewel in the most detailed way.
Thus the image of the nugget “Mephisto” will be created.
