SideFX has recently announced that the Reality Capture plugin is ready for testing.
The plugin allows you to run Reality Capture processes from within Houdini in order to streamline your pipeline. It is designed to take multiple images as input, and generate high resolutions models as the output, which can then be ran through Houdini’s mesh pipeline. It is not designed to be a complete replacement of every feature in RC, but the ones that fit well in a Houdini pipeline.
Reality Capture is a state-of-the-art all-in-one photogrammetry software solution which automatically extracts beautiful and accurate 3D models from a set of ordinary images and/or laser-scans
