Colorado River - Grand Canyon (Video to Mesh) 3D Model
Well I have been playing around with video to pointcloud creation for a while now and decided, why not try it in a nontraditional way. Here are the steps I used to create this model of a part of the Grand Canyon
- Opened up Google Earth Pro and Camtasia at the same time and created a recording window to capture all the map and cut out the logo and other information.
- Recorded myself moving around the map a little and zooming in and out of the river, all together the video was 60 seconds
- Pulled every 5th frame from the recording using some free online program and ended up with around 500 photos
- Threw all the photos in Agisoft Photoscan and processes. I am pretty pleased with the results. I am going to try and dome something a little larger soon, probably a 15-20 min video recording or a massive land mass and see how things work out.
Hope you enjoy
