With new imaging software, aircraft paint scheme specialist Scheme Designers can now illustrate photo-realistic views of paint schemes, viewable from several angles.

Scheme Designers (Booth 1033) is now offering “photo-realistic” 3-D artistic renderings of customer aircraft with its new custom paint scheme. This new tool allows customers to visualize all angles of their aircraft’s custom livery with “stunning realism” before sending the aircraft out to be painted at a third-party shop.

Scheme Designers’ 3-D photo-realistic renderings are very specific and detailed, providing the owner with a new level of understanding of how their custom scheme will look on their ‘live’ aircraft,” said company owner and president Craig Barnett. “The high-resolution renderings can show the aircraft from any angle and in any flight configuration to help clients visualize how their new scheme will appear on their aircraft. The 3-D renderings are of such high quality that clients are also using them in their marketing materials in lieu of air-to-air photos, saving them time and money.”

In the course of developing a custom paint scheme for an aircraft, Scheme Designers artists work with aircraft owners to bring their vision to life on their aircraft. Typically, several iterations are reviewed and a vast number of variables are considered along the path to scheme finalization.

According to Scheme Designers, its artists work to optimize color combinations and bring out the lines of each aircraft model to accommodate design considerations such as access panels, inlets, antennae, window placement and other details that affect the final product.
