Id_Rather_Watch_Paint_Dry_Logo.pngIn this weeks video for the YouTube Channel, I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry, taking about Photogrammetry again.  This time it is a follow up to the last photogrammetry video I did.  My goal is to turn the ship I use in No Man’s Sky into a 3D Model. Then 3D print it. Gave it a try with a few programs. Ended up with better results with the program Reality Capture.  Which you can see in the video > here or below.

Reality Capture Again

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , on April 6, 2021 by getbent57

Photogrammetry.jpgTalking about Reality Capture again.  This is a really good photogrammetry program.  A few posts back take about how I had some success with some video footage I had o the ship I used in No Man’s Sky.  So went back into the game to try and get better and more footage.  Since this program doesn’t have a photo upload limit.  Run this new footage though the program and ended up with worst results I ever had.  So looked on YouTube on how to best set things up for photogrammetry.  Those of course are for real like objects but did learn a few things.  Going to keep trying.  May be I will give it a go with other games as well.

Id_Rather_Watch_Paint_Dry_Logo_thumb.pngIn this weeks video for the YouTube Channel, I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry, taking about Photogrammetry.  Wanted to see if Photogrammetry would work with video games. A lot of game now a days of photo modes, so it makes it easier to get pictures or video. My goal is to turn the ship I use in No Man’s Sky into a 3D Model. Then 3D print it. Gave it a try with a few programs. Did end up with some good result.  Which you can see in the video > here or below.

Reality Capture

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 23, 2021 by getbent57

Talking about photogrammetry once more.  Have tired a few different programs over the last two years.  Have found another one I am going to try, Reality Capture.  What makes this one standout.  The full program is free.  However to export you need to buy PPI (Pay-Per-Input) Credits.  This price will change on how big the project is.  Well that I how understand how it works.   Did watch some how-to video on the software.  Will be back with an update.

Photogrammetry And Video Games

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 3, 2021 by getbent57

A few posts back talked about photogrammetry to work with the video game Diablo 3 Eternal Collection and it didn’t work out so good.  Last year some time tired this some thing with my ship from No Man’s Sky and that didn’t work as well.  That being said gave the ship another try and had some better results.  The program managed to scan the ship.  There are some problems with a bunch of holes in the ship.  So looking into seeing if I can fix those.  If I can do that.  Than it could be turned into a 3D printable model.  The picture below is from the 3D scan and you can see the holes in the wing.

Photogrammetry

A few posts back talked about trying to get photogrammetry to work with the video game Diablo 3 Eternal Collection.  When you pause the game you seen what your character looks like and it can be spun around.  Was think that might be useful in the 3D program.  Well I gave it many tries and it didn’t work.  Am thinking because the program has no reference  to where the character is to the background.  Oh well, it was worth a try.  Am thinking I will try again with a real world object.  Will be back with another update.

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.

Trying Out Photogrammetry

Posted in I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 12, 2020 by getbent57

In this weeks video for the YouTube Channel, I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry, try out some photogrammetry. My goal is to see if I could turn my motorcycle into a 3D model. In which I could print on my Elegoo Mars 3D printer. Had some success and going to keep at it. Keep and eye on for more videos on this subject. You can see how it turned out > here or below.

3DF ZEPHYR

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , on June 9, 2020 by getbent57

3dflow_3dfzephyrHas been awhile since last talked about photogrammetry and 3D printing.  Now that the weather has gotten better going to start 3D printing again.  Have all so tried out different photogrammetry program called 3DF Zephyr.   They have a free version to try.  Which I did but there are some limits.  It only lets you use 50 pictures.  The best part of the program is you can import video.  Gave this at try with tutorial and was very impressed with the results.  Got thinking I would like to give the one of the paid versions a try.  Then sticker shocked happed.  For the next level up, it lets you use 500 pictures.  With an asking price of about $240.00 Canadian.  This is a lot of money.  Would be worth it if I was to use the program all the time.  The level up after that is just shy of $4000.00 Canadian.   There is a 14 day trail for the payed version.  Just might give that a go.

Photogrammetry Yet Again

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , on February 17, 2020 by getbent57

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.
