Taking pictures in a two-dimensional space or 2D format has already grounded its existence years ago. The challenge that has really been boggling the developers and designers is to generate 3D objects or convert an existing 2D object into a 3D format. There are numerous software applications available in the market to generate objects on a 3D format. However, few rendering applications have the functionality of transforming a 2D object into a 3D format, effortlessly and without consuming any time. One such application available to developers is “Reliefmod”. This application is swift, quick and user-friendly to perform the above mentioned functionality. However, it can be compared to other applications, such as “Bas Relief”. The latter application typically follows ancient and mundane sculpting procedures. However, we will not get into the procedural functionality of Bas Relief. Rather than that, we will further dissect the notion of effortless conversion or creation.
Coming back to Reliefmod, all one has to do is simply select and upload the picture (in supported formats) that needs a 3D formation. In order to ensure quality results, the image should be clear and the outline distinctly separate from the background. If the 2D image does not have a clear silhouette then the chances are that the background will not able to distinguish itself from the background and will yield obscurity to the 3D image. So make sure that the 2D image is contrastingly lit with fewer outlines as possible. Furthermore, complex 2D photograph with too much detail is also detrimental at the time of creation.
Once the image has been uploaded onto the software, a 3D format or an object will be created automatically. However, it is not mandatory that the created image is the final version. One can easily play with the settings until it gives the desired result. As earlier stated the contrasting features in the image are important. If the selected area is comparatively light and the dark areas are over-empowering then it can easily be done by choosing the appropriate function. Furthermore, the developer has the liberty to highlight which part of the image wants to be in monochrome, sepia, vintage or colored. However, ensure that while printing out the 3D object the printer supports the recommended functionality.
Photographs with too much noise or pixilated picture can also cater through this application. It can minimize and reduce graphical anomalies and easily crease out the noise (such as the image being splotched or discolored). In addition, the application is also equipped with a blurring function that is used to smoothen out the image as much as possible. One can also determine the size and quality of the 3D image. However, the developer needs to bear in mind that with higher quality and large size, the resolution of the image will also increase. Once the developer is satisfied with the result, the image is ready for a printout. This is as simple as it gets.
