Hi all, in 2016 I founded Lithodomos, a Melbourne based Blender studio, we’ve been making reconstructions of the ancient world with Blender since 2016.
We’ve have just launched ‘Explore’, an app that allows subscribers to explore over 400 recreations of the ancient world in stereoscopic 360 on a smartphone with—or without—VR cardboard glasses. There are free samples on the app as well.
Lithodomos’ in-house team of academics and historians first painstakingly research the scenes, often working with local cultural heritage experts. The research is then transformed into recreations of these places.
Here’s a desktop example
We’ve focussed on recreating the most visited and studied ancient environments with a focus on Europe.
Blender is used for 99% of our workflow and is the most important program for the content creation pipeline.
