2019 – What a wonderful year for Photogrammetry. Not only have we had great advances in hardware like UAV’s but also the long awaited Meshroom hit the web in open source format using the AliceVision framework.
This means that the little person can use a good piece of software to create mesh models from pictures – providing that the camera is good enough.
For too long we have had to either pay heavy amounts of money or use command line for any power processing photogrammetry projects but now this promisses to change all that witha full professional GUI and DOPE editor combined with the SFM AliceVision System.
Obviously we need to convince big business that open source is worth supporting so please all spread the word.
Over the Next few days I will be trialling the software and upload some samples and if it produces great results, like they have, we will use it for creating open source models to share so watch this space and lets reduce that modelling time for games.
Here is to Hope but if you want to investigate yourself then please look at their website https://alicevision.github.io/#
