Anyone know the cost per point yet?

The balconies on the turret look like they will get toasty.

I also like the inconsistent use and sizing of canopies over inoperable windows.

EIFS. EIFS panels, everywhere.

Why is there motion blur? Maybe this is a still from an animation fly/walk through?

That is one extremely important lamppost.

As someone doing this for a living, this type of junk annoys me to no end.

My Google search shows $188, same as copper creek. Annual dues $8.31 which looks like the highest of all the Disney World properties. The cheapest studio is 11 points, but I think most people splurge and waste away their points. I'm not a fan of DVC. You will end up spending more money with fewer options going this route vs cash.

Isn't the blur trying to create a faux focal blur?

And it's a shame how those rooms will roast from the sun... shining in from the Northwest. Because, you know, how in the Northern Hemisphere, the sun is in the Northern half of the sky.

You might want to review a sun chart for 28° N. The sun starts setting north of west shortly after the spring equinox. Extreme east and western sunlight is harsh and the balconies are angled toward the west. That will place them in harsh western light for a large chunk of the year when it is already hot out.

I stand corrected.

Although, the art shows a high sun according to the shadows... :)

If they were trying to create a focal bokeh effect then the objects further from view would get gradually more out of focus, not blurred. In this image, the portions to the right and left are both blurred, not out of focus. This leads me to believe this was a still from a movie.

I could be wrong.

Doesn't make any of my comments about the low quality of the rendering or the design off base, however.

There is now zero question in my mind all of these renderings are being created from a BIM (most likely Revit) model and being exported to 3DS to render, or being rendered in Revit with a Lumion plug-in. And it's almost certainly not done in house at WDI, but at the Architecture firm DIS hired.

So the real question becomes, how much is the Arch firm paying their visual design specialists, and if they would be willing to farm that work out to my firm. :hilarious:

One can't shine [...].

This is how they once could design and render a deluxe, top dollar themed resort:
359676

From that, to this:
359677

They were gods in the field of themed hotels. Now they're worms (excepting Star Wars interiors).
