Photogrammetry Testing 11: VisualSFM & OpenMVS (and COLMAP+openMVS)

  Here’s the original post, with links to all posts This post was updated 27/5/17 – see end of post; turns out using COLMAP for sparse reconstruction let openMVS create an awesome mesh. Normally I see OpenMVS mentioned in the same breath as OpenMVG, but I’m still having significant troubles with OpenMVG behaving with this dataset, so I’ll run the matching with VisualSFM. Download VisualSFM here: http://ccwu.me/vsfm/ And Download OpenMVS binaries here: http://cdcseacave.github.io/openMVS/ (or build it yourself from source.) It’s a while since I’ve used VisualSFM, preferring COLMAP recently.  My word it is fast! 95 seconds to a full reconstruction … Continue reading Photogrammetry Testing 11: VisualSFM & OpenMVS (and COLMAP+openMVS)

The importance of 3D for tracks -or- how big is your footprint really!

I should probably have made this post sooner, as it’s about my chapter in the Great Dinosaur Track Book Of 2016: “Dinosaur Tracks: The Next Steps”. It’s a volume I was privileged enough to be an editor for, and it … Continue reading The importance of 3D for tracks -or- how big is your footprint really!

Photogrammetry Testing 4: OpenMVG and MVE (+TexRecon)

Here’s the original post, and links to all posts I have previously outlined my goal of testing multiple photogrammetry solutions on a single dataset, and reporting times and results. I’m using a dataset based on photographs of this Styracosaurus model … Continue reading Photogrammetry Testing 4: OpenMVG and MVE (+TexRecon)
