Advances in 3D modeling computing time are revolutionizing the way safety and training processes can be conducted which in turn help create new plane games. The technology that used to be only available to flight simulation and large scale projects with huge budgets is now opening up to a wider market.The production cost of 3D modeling videos is becoming similar to tradition video methods. Some 3D Studios are starting to take advantage of 3D modeling improvements to create new opportunities for safety and training for industry. In the same way as training takes place on flight simulators for aviation, these companies are using 3D modeling to create safety and training videos for industry. Be it a fire safety video for students to evacuate their school, to a mining company for training employees on their big load trucks. Safety and training videos and simulations are interactive, using any available computer.
Students and employees are required to take action on the program, using a keyboard and mouse. This level of interaction requires students and employees too not only know the right thing to do, but to actually do it.For example, students in 5th grade sit down at their computers in the lab for their annual fire training. The students see their school modeled in 3D and are given a starting point in a classroom, and are asked to guide their character through the right procedures. This includes a test where the student gets to a door, and needs to check whether the door is hot before attempting to open the door. If the child fails to check the door, the child will be required to repeat the procedure. At various points through the school the student will be tested to do the correct procedures in case of a fire. The environment is realistic, with the details of smoke, a fire alarm sounding, and the sound of the student walking through the school. These elements add to the experience, making the training as real world as possible.
