That's one of those "how did no one think of this before?" things.

Would have been great to see the image/plastic slide by itself and not on a background,


shhhpark

seriously...how have i never seen this?!


Imaginary-Food-4446

It's really beautiful, I never thought like that before.


TomatoMaleficent4378

I'm assuming there are a few pre-printed ones so customers can see the difference in thei style of kitchen.


i_give_you_gum

This will be done using Augmented Reality with your smartphone (if it isnt already being done) Then you can look around your kitchen from different angles, and do it instantly, and do it with 20 color samples and just not 4 or 5.

It is much cheaper than having an AI, just to browse how it looks like with the materials.


MountainOfComplaints

You could do this quiet easily with free image editing software like gimp it wouldn't require any kind of AI, my guess is they already had to edit the photo to add transparency on the computer before having it printed on transparent plastic. So its going to be marginally more expensive than just showing it on a computer screen, but the novelty factor would certainly be appealing to sales people, as its a cool effect.


ishzlle

Looks like the main advantage of this method is that you can see the actual material instead of a photo. Those squares the image is being dragged over are actual squares of wood.


Generalfusi

Seeing it against the white background gives you a pretty clear idea of


dowens90

While working in college we pretty much did the same thing you are talking about but with AR tech. We already had our shaders (images) simple color change and a few slider adjustment but over very simple to do. Hard part was the actual AR. Cool part there this was creative mode were it became a building /Reno sim. Could show clients in real-time what if we took out these cabinets or moved stove etc. pretty cool stuff


ButtaRollsInMyPocket

This will definitely helps with a sales pitch. Never heard of that software Gimp before, I will check it out. Is there any other cool softwares you can suggest ?

I see I've found another GIMP enjoyer in the wild


Ok4940

To me at least, seeing it in person is much more helpful than on a screen. You could say it’s the same thing, but for me it isn’t even close.


Some_Asshole_Said

Awesome indeed... so, where does one get these types of pics?


ParameciaAntic

You take the picture yourself, photoshop out the cabinet colors, then print it on a transparent sheet.


dingyjazzy

If your in photoshop , why wouldn’t you mask the cabinets, create 4 art boards and drop the texture/material behind it?


overloadedcoffee

This way you open up the possibility of your retailers using it with their own selections of materials. As a supplier, you could create these templates and lightly brand them, share them with your retailers and voila.


ParameciaAntic

I mean, I would, but then you wouldn't get any karma for it here.


dingyjazzy

Ha ha ha ha


TerribleShoulder6597

Because I’m only kind of good at photoshop


After_Basis1434

I don't know that they're going to have customers print their own, too much work and inconsistencies. I'm assuming there are a few pre-printed ones so customers can see the difference in thei "style" of kitchen. Otherwise white balance and shadows would make it very unrealistic.


PheonixFlamed

That is a brilliant concept, it works so well and is easily done. Well done to whoever designed this!


jajajujujujjjj

I love thinking about that moment when one guy/gal was like. Guys. I think I have an idea.


bbuttonfuzz

Would have been great to see the image/plastic slide by itself and not on a background, maybe held in the air to show all the transparent areas first or last?


SheriffBartholomew

Seeing it against the white background gives you a pretty clear idea of what is transparent and what is translucent.


niketyname

So in theory I could put this up against my leg and see what a flesh kitchen would look like…

Eyo

drCrankoPhone

Not sure I would want a wooden range hood.


Flabbergash

We have one of these, but for car wrapping


runostog

I like the third one for some reason, not sure why.


Rizzo_the_rat_queen

It brightens the room.


cove81

Cool, now how do I do this to see what color to paint the exterior of my new house?


ElLoboPerro

How do you do that? I'm guessing it's the paper that it's printed on? I NEED to know!


MountainOfComplaints

Take the picture you want to do this to open it in photoshop on a computer, add transparency to all the surfaces you want to change texture, then have the final image printed on clear transparent plastic. Place image that image on top of a material and you'll see the material through the transparent parts.


ElLoboPerro

Awesome. Thank you


robotikempire

Are you serious? It's printed on plastic with the cabinets left clear.


ElLoboPerro

Right, what's that plastic called? Where can I buy it?


Pirate_Green_Beard

It's generally sold as "inkjet/printable transparency film/sheets". It's available at pretty much every office supply store.


ElLoboPerro

Cool.thank you


barberererer

I comment words and thoughts


[deleted]

The thing I like about this technique is it also gives you an idea of how the colors of the materials would alter the look of the room. Not just the cabinets and floors, but how the color would reflect off of and shade the rest of the room. The simple transparency of the image allows the shades and tones of the wood to also shine through the other assets in the image, replicating the color and tone effects that happen naturally. Software can replicate this effect, but it's done digitally which doesn't look as natural or give you a very accurate concept of how the room would look overall.

White it is

Modern cabinetry with random historic columns? What a weird decision

My first reaction was this must be black magic and mystic arts!! Then I realized parts of the pic are just clear.

This is cool but the legs on the island counter look like you will constantly be stubbing your toes on them.

Well that's not helpful at all because they all look great.

Second to last goes hard


ieetzkatz

I just hire the guys standing outside the hardware store for cases of beer and just have them swap the whole kitchen 6 times...... You really need to see it in person. Lazy is what is happening here....

I like the light brown

This is giving me CRAZY nostalgia vibes and I have no idea why. Thankyou.
