Their website does say that you can pay per image at $1 per image. I am in the opposite boat though. I could see this having a very significant effect on photogrammetry but I would need to process a few thousand images at a time which would not be very feasible with their current pricing model
To the developers. A very promising piece of software for a VFX supervisor like me. BUT, please reconsider your pricing tiers and introduce a per-image price. We are a pretty large facility, but I can only imagine needing about 1-10 images a month at the very most. It's like HDRI's - we buy them all the time, one at a time. They need to be individually billed so a producer can charge them against a particular job.
Emre Karabacak shared a free 16-minute-long guide to creating a diamond pattern. You will follow simple steps to build and present a nice-looking pattern on a cylinder.
Basically, there are three majors steps here. First, you create a high poly tileable diamond pattern. Then you place it on a cylinder and finish with baking normal map in Marmoset Toolbag 3.
