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)

Photogrammetry testing 7: SMVS (+MVE)

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 (I’ve had it since I was quite young): The dataset has 53 photos in total, and is available from this link. [This will be moved to figshare in due course]. The model is about 12 cm in total length, has texture for the scales, and a reflective brass nameplate on the base. The model was situated on a glass desk, … Continue reading Photogrammetry testing 7: SMVS (+MVE)
