3D Reconstruction in the Wild.

Martin Bujnak
(Capturing Reality, Slovakia)

Photogrammetry is a seemingly magical process that can turn a set of photos into a detailed 3D model with only a PC. While not far from the truth, like most magic tricks, the details make the difference. In this talk we will cover how a pipeline for photogrammetry makes the difference between a poor reconstruction and an amazing one.

The talk will detail the technology behind and use of a specific photogrammetry tool, Reality Capture, and the use of that tool's new SDK to extend the pipeline for better results. It will show how using an SDK to add instant, on-site, visual feedback during capture can make the process more reliable and successful.

While it might look magical, there are still many opened questions and opened problems to solve.
