The Power of Expert 3D Animation in Litigation
Our team includes 3D animation pioneers who were instrumental in the field’s development in the early 1990s when 3D technology was a breakthrough for the legal community. Because we use it as an unimpeachable, data-driven teaching tool, 3D animation remains at the center of our visualization process. It’s the hub that connects collected data to understandable visuals.
For example, data collected from our laser scanners can be combined with data from an extraordinary array of other sources to produce accurate, dynamic depictions of events. Today, our clients benefit from ESi’s vast pool of resources, including advanced data collection and visualization technology, backed by an elite multidisciplinary team of scientists, engineers, and technical staff. Our methods can unify your legal team's understanding of the facts in a complex case and ultimately help jurors and judges clearly understand the facts behind the arguments that are critical to your client's success.
ESi is often engaged early to explore scientific facts long before a trial begins. In many cases, opposing counsel understands their weakened position when visualizations are developed that communicate their client’s liability. However, if visuals are not used to persuade the opposition to settle, or are unsuccessful in catalyzing a settlement, legal teams feature 3D animations in trial. Typically aiding an expert witness’ testimony, the trial animations are displayed in trial using presentation tools such as Trial Director and Sanction.
Why 3D Animation?
As noted, 3D Animations tell the story of the data in a unique, impactful, and understandable way. Other benefits of 3D Animation includes:
3D Animations may also be incorporated into PowerPoint slides. We can deliver the final legal animations in a variety of easy-to-use formats depending on client needs.
Communicate your winning theory convincingly in the courtroom, in arbitration, or mediation.
A 3D animation is often the best way to efficiently and effectively visualize your data for a fact-finder, where precision accuracy and deep understanding of a complex scenario is paramount.
