Industrial Strength Creativity

Product Videos

Ignore gravity by suspending objects in mid-air. Ghost-away exteriors. View your device from unique, physically impossible camera angles. Explode assemblies to understand and visualize relationships. These things are impossible with conventional video. Quality 3D animation provides endless opportunities for distinctly unique, visually beautiful and engaging presentations of the products you’ve worked so hard to perfect. Give us a call. We can help.

CAD Animation

Leverage your existing 3D CAD files to breathe realism into your marketing efforts. If you have 3D CAD already created for your product we can turn those files into beautiful, accurate marketing videos and still images. CraneDigital has been working with CAD data for 25 years. Recent developments have made it faster, less expensive and more accurate than ever to use your already created valuable work. Give us a call. We can help.
