Due to the complexity of this case it was clear that to understand the events in their full context accurate 3D modelling and visualisation of the crime scene was required. As a research tool forensic animation is an invaluable way to understand time and distance relationships of the available evidence, as well as to see the events from the eyes of the various family members on that tragic evening.
However, developing this research visualisation warranted more than just building some 3D models in a virtual scenario. While modelling was constrained to limited available evidence and stated information, it was the assembly of this evidence in the context of environment and time that allowed less unambiguous vizualisation of relative events. In this research reconstruction there were three primary considerations:
Firstly, the computer reproduction of the evidence must technically represent real-world physics so that the visualisation conforms scientifically with the evidence submitted by expert witnesses. For example; animation of fire impact evidence needed to analytically apply combustion science engineering and analysis so that all elements of fire-linked evidence are represented in a scientifically accurate and plausible manner.
Secondly, the computer generated modelling had to accurately represent relative time-motion-distance relationships of all available evidence. It contiguously links multiple layers of physical or material, testimonial and demonstrative evidence within the real-world environment to ensure that the visualisation is conclusively probable and trustworthy.
And lastly, the testimonies and material or subservient evidence must be assembled chronologically with painstaking care so that the facts remain cohesive and flow logically. The research modelling was intended to provide an easy to understand visualisation of events, environments and situations that encompassed the evidence and the perspectives of family members in a way that cross-linked all factual information to help eliminate improbabilities that may confuse or conflict the appeal.
