Hi All

A new method of extracting an object in 3d from one 2d image, the object is fully editable
there will be plenty of applications for this some good some bad ie using for a hoax.

petapixel.com...

What do you think.

This will revolutionize concept architecture. Going from a drawing to a small-scale building using a 3D printer and some picture software? Perfect for testing building schematics. Inch by inch, the future is gradually crawling through our front door.

I think that inserting UFO's into pictures got a whole lot easier.

I'm blown away by this.

This software will certainly be handy in helping with the creation of 3d enviroments.

I could see it having applications in holograms as well. Could be used to create "virtual worlds" from the real world.

Fascinating, and exciting.

I can see this as a great way to render quick meshes for gaming. With a basic mesh set, tweaking it for in game use would really speed up development.

That's actually just the first thing that popped into my head. Fallout and Elderscrolls mods.

someone could have some real fun with this by using it on the Zepruder film, examining
the JFK event in a new way.

I'm still trying to figure out how it could be used in game development. I suppose it could speed up asset creation because you could just take pictures of mundane objects and use this to pull meshes out of them, but I still think there is a need to use traditional 3d applications like Maya and 3ds. You can't take pictures of objects or characters that don't exist in the real world, so for the moment they still need to be modeled by hand.

Also, no idea if this software can even export models to other applications, and if so what format they use or what sort of polycount you are looking at for simple primitives or if it generates UV maps with it's models. Still, very cool and could potentially revolutionize the way 3d content is generated. Would be nice to see autodesk implement something similar into their packages.

Didn't dave Wilcox claim to have used this to find mars anomalies? I think he is kindof a gob#e but I would like to try this software on the spirit rover sasquatch picture.

Mmmm

This, and combine it with Euclideon.
Or somehow put them together...

Id say we are in for a ride in the next years...
In game dev and ALSO in HOAX section....

OMG, I really love this software.
shut up and take my money.

Yeah -- but this can't ADD information that is not already in the 2D image. what I mean is that this software can't magically know what is really on the "other side" of a 2D object in a picture.

For example, the tobacco pipe in the video example was made 3D and spun around a bit, making visible the "other side" of the pipe that was previously not visible. However, the information that was on the "other side" of the pipe not seen in the 2D image is NOT real information. It was simply fake information about the non-visible side of the smoking pipe that was interpolated/mirrored/derived from the side of the pipe that we could see.

I have done 3D imaging as a hobby...sort of makes some 3D modeling obsolete.

My head is sufficiently bent!
