Making models from photos (FREE!!)

Making models from photos (FREE!!)

You can create High Resolution images from Photographs for free, I thought I would put this here because I saw in another thread a listed paid for software that is mega expensive and found a free way of doing the same..

After you have created the model then retopologise it in your favorite 3d editing software and create a low poly mesh for use in your games.

2 ways of making models from photos for FREE:

Autodesk Memento is an end-to-end solution for converting any captured reality input (photos or scans) into high definition 3D meshes that can be cleaned up, fixed, and optimized for the Web, mobile or 3D printing / fabbing.


AND





Software you'll need:
Visual SFM (CUDA version if you use nVidia)

CMVS For Windows

Meshlab
http://meshlab.sourceforge.net/

Here is the rock in full 3D after cleanup and retopo.

If you'd like to join Sketchfab and display your own models please use my link.

If you'd like to use my photos you can get them here (259MB)

This is the original tutorial I followed which has a ton of information, but I wanted my videos to get right to the point.

need to have a play with this tech. memento looks like it is capable of doing it with quite a lot of accuracy.
Shame we don't have a camera with adjustable depth and focus.
