ATOR: How to make 3d scan with pictures and the PPT GUI

ATOR: How to make 3d scan with pictures and the PPT GUI
More than ever before 3D models have become a "physical" part of our life, how we can see in the internet with 3D services of printing. After download and unzip you have to edit the ppt_gui_start file putting the right path of the program (in orange). Now, if you are in Linux is only run the script edited: $ . Once the program is opened, click on “Check Camera Database”. With the Terminal/Prompt by side, click in “Select Photos Path”. Choose the path and then click on “Open”. Click in “Run” and wait a little. If all is OK, you’ll see a message in the Terminal: Camera is already inserted into the database If not, you can customise with this videotutorial: Now, make a copy of the path. 1) Go to “Run Bundler”. 2) Past at “Select Photos Path”. 1) To make a good scan quality, click on “Scale Photos with a Scaling Factor”, by default, the value will be 1. 2) Click on “Run”. Wait a few minutes, the program will solve the point clouds. 1) Paste the path in “Select Bundler Output Path”2) Click on “Run So: Related:  SfM

Structure from motion Structure from motion (SfM) is a range imaging technique; it refers to the process of estimating three-dimensional structures from two-dimensional image sequences which may be coupled with local motion signals. It is studied in the fields of computer vision and visual perception. In biological vision, SfM refers to the phenomenon by which humans (and other living creatures) can recover 3D structure from the projected 2D (retinal) motion field of a moving object or scene. Obtaining 3D information from 2D images[edit] Real photo x SfM with texture color x SfM with simple shader. Made with Python Photogrammetry Toolbox GUI and rendered in Blender with Cycles. Humans perceive a lot of information about the three-dimensional structure in their environment by moving through it. Finding structure from motion presents a similar problem as finding structure from stereo vision. See also[edit] Further reading[edit] Richard Hartley and Andrew Zisserman (2003).

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". All the features and modules are unit tested. 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.

SFM Scanner by wstrinz Structure from motion is a class of algorithms that take information about point correspondences between images and use them to reconstruct 3D scenes. While some pretty serious math is involved, no specialist hardware is required aside from a camera. We've seen lots of structure from motion based 3D scanning solutions already this year, the best known being, but all of them are closed source. So for my computational photography final project last semester I set out to make an open source SFM scanner in Matlab, since a lot of toolkits were already available to do the heavy math part. The program starts with either user input images or input from a webcam, extracts feature points using David Lowe's SIFT, attempts to remove outliers using the MAPSAC algorithm from Philip Torr's toolkit, then uses Vincent Rabaud's toolkit to reconstruct the 3D positions of the points.

Open Source Photogrammetry: Ditching 123D Catch – We Did Stuff This is part one in a series on open source photogrammetry. In part two, I’ll flesh out more VFX-centric application of this workflow. Before I start, big thanks to: Dan Short: for showing me his awesome 123d models that sparked this whole ideaHannah Davis: debugging + emotional support + snacks So a few weeks ago, Dan Short showed me 123D Catch. Until Dan showed me some models he generated from exhibts at the AMNH I didn’t really get the point of Catch…so what, you have a model of your water bottle…but what Dan showed me was that it worked incredible well on environments too: The Hall of African Mammals or even the penguin diarama from the infamous whale room! I remembered seeing something like this years ago: a product demo called Photosynth from Microsoft, which did this sort of reconstruction from thousands of tourist photos of the Notre Dame Cathedral. Photo limits: the iphone app seems to allow a maximum of 40 images. Here are the steps: Part 1: VisualSFM Part 2: Meshlab Caveats

Home Software for structure from motion A few people who I have spoken with recently expressed an interest in accessing freely available structure from motion (SFM) software. This note provides a brief introduction to SFM with information about a set of open source software for processing SFM data sets on a desktop computer. This is quite terse but hopefully useful or at least enough to pique some interest in working with SFM. SFM is a process of building 3-dimensional models using images of a feature that were acquired from different locations around the feature. The SFM process usually involves submitting several images to the program and after a few processing steps you get information about camera location and orientation for each photo and a point cloud which is essentially a 3-dimensional set of points that is a model of the feature you had imaged. SFM is increasingly being used for landscape mapping since it is possible to create orthorectified maps with little user input.

Orthogonal / Nadir « FLIGHT RIOT It seems that it is now possible and relatively easy to modify a digital camera to capture wavelengths necessary for producing Vegetation Indexes such as Normalized Differential Vegetation Index (NDVI). Recently, I tested some of the work being done by folks at along with others and some amazing results are coming to fruition. I’ve been communicating with Chris Fastie and Ned Horning over the past month or two regarding methods for generating NDVI and other Vegetation Indexes (VI) from a single digital camera. If you look at the Infragram project on kick starter or on publiclab you can read about their current project, which is intended to result in a low cost single camera solution for NDVI and other VI production. The images below are the results of my first tests using the new methods with one modified Canon A490. Okay, so here is what you need to DIY. Ned’s plugin is a piece of cake to use and surprisingly fast!
