The presentation xRez Studio made for the “Fine International Conference on Gigapixel Imaging for Science” 2010 at Carnegie Mellon is now on-line.Greg Downing of xRez Studio talks at the first Fine International Conference on Gigapixel Imaging for Science, November 11-13 2010 at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA.
This workshop covers visual and spatial data acquisition for real-life locations destined for research or visual reconstruction. The focus was on photographic techniques, such as HDRI capture, gigapixel panoramic background photography, photogrammetry for set reconstruction, and polynomial texture mapping for cultural heritage artifacts. Site survey techniques and the recording of lens information and distortion will be demonstrated as well as a new technique for 3d point cloud data capture based on Microsoft Photosynth software. Objectives: To acquaint the participant with the common techniques used in the feature film visual effects field to acquire information from real-life locations that will later be the basis of 3d reconstructions for visual communication or study. Introductions to field work as well as current software applications will be covered.
