Photogrammetry

There is no shortage of Photogrammetry software these days.

Take a look at this list

Here is a great talk from Siggraph on the process (and using Unity’s delighting software):

They are using Reality Capture for scanning. It’s pretty cool. I’ll have to do some tests to compared it to Agisoft’s Photoscan. Autodesk has their own software as well, ReCap. Things have really taken off since the days of RealViz’s Image Modeler.

 

Royalty Free Photography and Paintovers

Royalty free photography is nothing new, stock photography has been available from companies for some time. But now artists have started to use websites like Gumroad to sell their photography individually in a more even playing field with larger companies.

For Memorial Weekend

To all the men and women who have died in service to our country, we remember and honor you today.

My wife, Tamiko, and I went down to Lyon Air Museum with her Dad. It was the last weekend where an official Tuskegee Airplane was on display. It’s located on the west side of the John Wayne Airport in Santa Anna. It houses an exhibit comprised of authentic aircraft, rare vehicles and related memorabilia, with emphasis on the defining event of the 20th century – World War II. The pieces in the collection are just stunning.

Here is a sampling of the photos I took as we experienced this wonderful museum.
