I enjoy doing SfM with imagery.  I love the experience of seeing the real world in 3D and being able to manipulate it.  The industry is growing fast and it is a great way to make 3D content for your purposes.  I've been writing a C++ application off and on for about a year that implements some of my favorite open source solutions.  Namely, Theia and OpenMVS.  Right now it is for work, but I am hoping one day I can release a portion of the user interface as Freeware and then anyone with a camera can create 3D content for game engines, 3d printing, or whatever.


Here is a link to some great resources: http://www.cs.cornel...rojects/bigsfm/


And here is a few old videos I made using animation tools to rotate the model along it's Z-axis in Blender:


This was captured at a sculpture park in St. Louis with my Samsung Galaxy s7


This was captured from YouTube video uploaded.  The user recorded their neighborhood with a DJI Phantom 3.



I hope maybe this topic creates a place where people can discuss and share ideas around 3D modeling from photography and video.  Also known as Photogrammetry.

I was into making machinima a few years back. I downloaded SMF a while back, it was a bit tedious to learn.


I initially wanted to make machinima because I was too socially awkward to ask people to be in my real films.


Now I mainly use a green screen, adobe after effects and my Canon 60D to make practical effects and shitty movies. lol

This is the stuff I dreamed of doing as a child learning about CG and such. It's so neat.
