On most engineering projects, schematic drawings offer a technical representation of a structure to clients. For staff or the public who are not technically knowledgeable, though, schematics can be difficult to decipher. Artists renderings reveal a project more naturally, but can be expensive and are not easily revised. Coupling state-of-the-art computer techniques with video technology, digital imaging allows engineers and planners to more completely and cost effectively create visual images of their designs for clients. This paper outlines the use of a modern technique for visually displaying engineering solutions as they are developed and presenting them to a client or the public.
