We will provide you with an Estimate of Costs and time for delivery of the Product on receipt of a Brief from you. On Acceptance of the Estimate, you will be bound by these Terms. We may require an up front deposit of 50% of our Costs before we will commence work on the Product.

You may cancel a Brief after receiving our Estimate but not after Acceptance. If you cancel a purchase order after Acceptance, our Costs will be payable in full, unless we, in our sole discretion, decide to charge a cancellation fee as a percentage of our Costs.
We will deliver the Product to you for approval and finalisation as a medium resolution JPEG or high resolution proof if required.
3D Products are to be approved as follows:
A. Model Stage – the model or wire frame will be rendered in low resolution with a plain grey texture. Your approval will be required to proceed.
B. Camera Angle Stage – the camera angle relative to the 3D model will be set. In some cases this will be matched to a photographic back plate. Your approval will be required to proceed.
C. Texture and Materials Stage – texture and material will then be applied to the surface of the approved model. Your approval will be required to proceed.
D. Lighting and Positioning – 3D lighting will be applied to the approved model. Your approval is required to proceed to the high resolution render
Once your approval has been provided, the Product will be delivered to you in flattened Tiff or JPEG in RGB format (unless previously agreed as CMYK) on disk or via FTP site with ISO Coated v2 or DCam 3 approved colour proof if required, not as layered files. Master files will not be provided. If layered, master or CMYK files are required we will provide a file adhering to either ISO Coated v2 or DCam 3, however specifications must be outlined in the Brief and may incur additional time for delivery and additional Costs in our Estimate. By accepting delivery of the final Product, you agree to accept responsibility for the conversion, colour adjustment, colour matching and accurate reproduction of files to CMYK or specifications outside of these standards. We accept no responsibility for any further colour manipulation, conversion or colour management that may occur. All delivery expenses, courier and delivery media costs (such as DVD or FTPs) will incur additional fees in addition to our Costs unless otherwise quoted in our Estimate.
Our Costs quoted in our Estimate are GST exclusive. Any changes you require to the final Product after delivery will incur additional Costs.
