15-463: Computational Photography INSTRUCTOR:Alexei (Alyosha) Efros (Office hours: Tuesdays 5pm-6pm, EDSH 225)TA: Marynel Vázquez (Office hours: Wednesdays 10am-11am, NSH 4227)UNIVERSITY UNITS: 12SEMESTER: Fall 2012WEB PAGE: Piazza Course WebsiteLOCATION: GHC 5222TIME: T R 12:00--1:20 PM COURSE OVERVIEW: Computational Photography is an emerging new field created by the convergence of computer graphics, computer vision and photography. Its role is to overcome the limitations of the traditional camera by using computational techniques to produce a richer, more vivid, perhaps more perceptually meaningful representation of our visual world. The aim of this advanced undergraduate course is to study ways in which samples from the real world (images and video) can be used to generate compelling computer graphics imagery. PREREQUISITES: Programming experience and familiarity with linear algebra and calculus is assumed.
Plugins - CloudCompareWiki From CloudCompareWiki openMVG: "open Multiple View Geometry" "open Multiple View Geometry" is a library for computer-vision scientists and especially targeted to the Multiple View Geometry community. It is designed to provide an easy access to the classical problem solvers in Multiple View Geometry and solve them accurately. The openMVG credo is: "Keep it simple, keep it maintainable". OpenMVG targets readable code that is easy to use and modify by the community. All the features and modules are unit tested. This test driven development ensures that the code works as it should and enables more consistent repeatability. openMVG multiview module consists of a collection of: solvers for 2 to n-view geometry constraints that arise in multiple view geometry. a generic framework that can embed these solvers for robust estimation.openMVG provides a complete Structure from Motion incremental chain.
Wrap: Create 3D Polygon Models direct from 3D Scanner Data Art and Sculpture Create perfect works of art, scale sculptures, and archive and restore fragile or eroded artifacts with the help of 3D. Artists and sculptors everywhere are using Geomagic Wrap to represent physical objects in 3D design environments, delivering watertight 3D data in a wide range of industry-standard formats. 3D Imaging for Analysis, Animation and Filmmaking Rapidly create perfect, watertight 3D models of physical objects from 3D scans and use them to perform advanced functions such as Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). In addition, visual effects artists and animators can use these 3D models in Maya, 3ds Max and more. Archeology Archaeologists can use the power of 3D to archive and fully analyze petroglyphs and ancient markings, which often cannot be detected by the naked eye, using Geomagic Wrap.
Mozilla Firefox From point cloud to BIM Survey software provider Kubit, recently acquired by Faro, goes back to basics with its analysis of the implications and ways of surveyed data capture Figuire 1 Point cloud as reference model: 3D view (left), planar view of the point cloud region (upper right) and the resulting 3D model (lower right) Building Information Modelling (BIM) methodology is increasingly penetrating into building design. The point cloud as reference model First it is necessary to transfer the original survey data into the required BIM system. Besides the spatial display of the whole point cloud it is also additionally possible to use the scan view of the individual scans for modelling. In the scan view all of the surveyed points from a single scanner set up can be displayed in a photo-like panorama view.
