A 3D Layout Artist creates 3D layouts for a variety of media, including movies, television, video games, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). These artists use 3D modeling software to produce 3D environments, buildings, props and other objects that can be used in a production. The 3D Layout Artist is responsible for creating the overall look and feel of a scene, including the placement of objects, lighting, and camera angles. They must have a good understanding of perspective and be able to effectively communicate with the director and other members of the production team to ensure that the 3D layout matches the vision of the production. The 3D Layout Artist must have a strong eye for detail, an understanding of composition, and an understanding of how to use 3D software to create realistic 3D environments.
