Photogrammetry Another Try

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 25, 2021 by getbent57

Am going to give photogrammetry another go.  Gave it a try last year with some mixed results.  Then kind of stopped working on those projects.  Think I need to scale back a bit.  A while back while playing Diablo 3 Eternal Collection when you in the menu screen you can see your character.  You can spin it around in 360 view.  So you can see what the character looks like when you chance the clothes and weapons.  Thinking this will be much easier to get photos from a video.  Can edit the video to mostly be black and export the pictures.  Going to give this a try soon.  Will be back with an update.

Photogrammetry Yet Again

Have made a few posts about photogrammetry.  My first two attempts failed.  However in the last post talked about how I seen a tutorial on how to use video instead of pictures.  Give it another go with No Man’s Sky again.  This time use my game capture device.  The loaded that into VLC and exported screenshots.  The next step to edit the pictures.  Had a 140 or so to edit.  Which took a long time but was well worth it.  Because when I load them in the photogrammetry program and did what I to do, (side not one step over two hours to render), it worked out great.  As you can see in the picture below.  This is were I stopped at.  There are a bunch more I have to do.  Think it will turn out great.  Either way will be back with another post.

Photogrammetry Again

A few posts back talked about photogrammetry.  One of my goals with that was to printer a model of a ship from No Man’s Sky.  While it didn’t work.  Looked into more.   Seen some videos of people using video instead of pictures to make a 3D model.  In one of these videos used different programs.  There are more steps involved.   But are all easy to do.  Going give it a try.  Will be back with an update if it works out.  Do hope its does because there is so much you could do with.  Turing you favourite video game characters or thing into a 3D model would be cool.

PhotogrammetryHave printed off a few things with my Elegoo Mars 3D printer.  There are all kinds of cool files you can download.  That’s all fine.  But wanted to make my own.  Have played around with Tinkercad.  Then got thinking there has to be way to scan real world objects to turn them in to a 3D file.  Looked into that.  There are all kinds of scanners you can buy but they cost way to much.  Then found out about photogrammetry.  Basically it is a software that you load pictures into that turns them into to a 3D.  The trick is you need to take lots of pictures at many different angles.  When the weather gets nice going to try this my motorcycle.  In the mean time got things why not try this with a video game.  Have been playing No Man’s Sky a lot.  The ship I have is pretty cool.  The game goes have a photo mode.  Got thinking this would be awesome to print off.  My next day off going to give it a try.  There is some free software out there with I will try first.  It is called Meshroom.

[Update]  Tried this out with No Man’s Sky and it didn’t work.  The software doesn’t work this just regular .jpg’s.  It needs to have the metadata from the camera as well.
