Join Kacie Hultgren for an in-depth discussion in this video Controlling your environment, part of 3D Scanning with a Camera.
- Now that you have your object picked out,…let's set up our scanning environment.…There are a few key things to consider.…First, photogrammetry works best in a "noisy" environment.…Objects in the background actually help the software…compute an accurate mesh.…Clean white rooms or green screens are counterproductive.…Pick a scanning environment that has…points of reference in the background.…You can also add this "noise" yourself.…If you're scanning an object on a table,…lay down pages of a newspaper or a magazine,…or use a patterned tablecloth.…
You can even add colored sticky notes…to give the software more points of interest to compare.…You'll also need the right lighting.…Photogrammetry works best in bright but diffuse light.…You'll want to avoid lighting fixtures…or windows in your photos.…And watch out for your shadow.…Pick lighting where you don't have one,…or position your body so that it doesn't affect your photos.…That's everything we need to get started.…
