This is a 3d reconstruction based on a court report into a road traffic accident. The details of the accident itself have been omitted.

The scene clearly demonstrates the power of 3d animation in conveying a large amount of information in a short space of time. Court reports are generally commissioned by solicitors or insurance companies and can be forty pages long or more. They are based on many documents including witness statements, physical evidence, terrain maps as well as weather conditions, lighting conditions, road surface and visibility information. Calculations and analysis are made based on the laws of physics and applied mathematics. It is the job of the 3d animator to portray this analysis as accurately as possible.

The ability to place multiple cameras in the scene is a huge advantage of 3d accident reconstruction. Once the mechanics of the scene have been built, driver’s eye views, witness views, overhead views, moving cameras can all help to illuminate the situation.

3d Accident Reconstructions

3d Accident reconstruction is becoming a very useful tool in legal circles. This scene is an actual road traffic accident case study which was brought to me to recreate. There are two sides to every story but this animation shows just one side of this particular case from a number of different camera angles. It was a major help in building a convincing case for the client.
