Free photogrammetry! (Mammal Monday 8)

No, I did not forget Mammal Monday. It just took some time to get the ……. “pictures” ready.

I found yesterday, and decided to run a quick test. Here’s the result: 9 photos, 20 minute, that’s all it took.

and here’s Mom and the siblings (16 photos, 53 minute wait):

Overall, that’s a pretty good point cloud. Commercial program will do better, but if you lack the money to buy one, and a computer that runs them, then you’ll be happy to have a free service of this quality, and one that does not want the rights to your files.

    He’s so fluffy!!
    What was the learning curve like?

    That’s quite impressive. I assume that the fur is a difficult surface to capture.
    I’m thinking this would be a great way to create a reference volume to model to. Might speed up my skeletals.

    • The fur is not bad, it has good texture. Glossy things are much worse!
      There are a lot of holes and a lot of stuff is missing, but I think I can get a good enough model out of it to loft a volume over.

    I’m having a bit of difficult identifying these critters. Are they the hyenas from Mammal Monday 6?

    Won’t let Heinrich’s cat out of the bag, but – what a coincidence – I need to model and animate a whole family on an upcoming job 🙂
