Una mirada virtual al pasado: recreación del castillo de Montefrío en época nazarí

Miguel Valdivia García


Drawing is a necessary tool to deepen in the knowledge of the objects studied. This tool has been widened and favoured with the fast development of the 3D modeling technologies and realistic photo rendering, because the level of knowledge we can extract from the objects is higher when we are offered far more graphical resources. The recreation of the castle of Montefrío in the nazarí age is an instance of the use of the infographic techniques applied to the historical knowledge and its diffusion. For this project of 3D animation the render elements have been used , which is based on de-built the render in its main elements, allowing a great control and flexibility in the workflow of the project and during the phase of postproduction of CG images.
