High Volume Render Editor Disrupting the Property Development Market
MAROOCHYDORE, QLD, Australia (June 22, 2020) -- Australian-based proptech company BoxBrownie.com are turning their globally successful real estate photo editing business model to the property development industry, in an attempt to turn the traditional render industry on its head. They believe the provision of renders with a high volume, low cost, high quality, and quick turnaround combination has been missing in the market. "When 3D renders first appeared on the developer scene, they were applauded as the ultimate way to showcase a property and sell off the plan," explained BoxBrownie.com cofounder Mel Myers. "For a long time, they've been lauded as a specialist output. Each render costs a lot of money, with long production times, but they do look like works of art." BoxBrownie.com has revolutionised residential and commercial real estate marketing with over 75,000 customers in 82 countries, offering photo editing services from $1.60 and Virtual Staging and Virtual Renovations from $24. The company uses a global team of editing experts, dedicated quality control teams, and 24/7 customer service to ensure 100% satisfaction on images. The no subscription pay-as-you-go format has also been popular with customers. "We have made photo editing accessible, affordable, easy and quick for real estate professionals. We've beaten the triple constraint and we are about to do the same for property development," stated Myers. "We thought why can't the render industry too have the iron triangle of Good, Cheap, and Fast. "After working closely with our international team of 3D experts, we can produce A-grade internal and external renders from US$280, slashing costs of the existing average $400-$1000 price for this product. The quality will impress any development marketing executive, or more importantly, the most fastidious of potential buyers. And of course, the company's accountant is going to be very happy." As recent times have indicated, buyers being able to view a property from home, or anywhere, has become incredibly important. 360° Render Virtual Tours are an interactive property marketing tool to showcase development to buyers prior to construction. BoxBrownie.com have realised this and have a strong focus on 360° Virtual Tour production within the company's offering for both existing residential properties and rendered displays. They can produce 360° renders for US$400 and offer free 360° Virtual Tour creation and link hosting. Examples of BoxBrownie.com renders and 360° Virtual Tours can be found on their website.

Want to Create Videos, But Don't Have the Hardware?
No video camera? No problem! Create original videos with your own photos, clips or just an idea More than 35 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute, and with the motto of "Broadcast Yourself", it's hard to believe that anyone is left out of the YouTube experience. But the truth is, sites like YouTube do largely leave out people who don't have a video camera. That's changing with the beta launch of youtube.com/create, where anyone can use video creation sites Xtranormal, Stupeflix and GoAnimate to make personal videos or animations and post them directly to YouTube. Create original animations Creating animation can be pretty hard and often requires expensive software, but GoAnimate and Xtranormal Movie Maker let you create animated videos with just a text storyline. In minutes, you can make two bears discuss fiction-writing, or create your own cooking show parody. Use your own photos, clips and music to create dynamic videos Stupeflix lets you pull together your own images, clips and even maps into a dynamic video slideshow. You can tell a personal story or even make a jazzy promo for your craft company. Start creating! So give it a test drive. Here are some ideas: Create an educational video Reenact a scene from your favorite movie or play Create a digital 2010 year book, or a 2011 graduation video This is still early and we look forward to adding more sites, so check them out and give us some feedback in the comments section below.
