This is amazing! Please tell us, What programs where used to create these amazing animations?
I am continuing development on WorldKit as a solo endeavor now. Progress is a bit slower as I've had to take a more moderate approach to development hours. I took a short break following the failure of the commercial launch, and now I have started up again, but I've gone from 90 hour work weeks to around 40 or 50 hour work weeks. See my longer reply on the future of WorldKit here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAYgW5JfCQw&lc=UgxtXVCCULAyzrzAwvp4AaABAg.8swLeUjv7Fb8swt1875FAT I am hard at work with research and code, and am not quite ready to start the next fund-raising campaign to open-source, so I've been quiet for a while. I hope to have a video out on the new features in the next few weeks.
Someone please create open source world creator already in C/C++.
Grzegorz Baran has recently shared another great photogrammetry guide. The artist has showed the way he created his snow-covered grass with the help of Photoscan, Substance tools, ZBrush, Photoshop and Marmoset.
Another scan but definitely a tricky one. Trying to improve final height map I decided to utilise height map data which usually sucks on seam removal stage by filtering just height detail information (used Equaliser node) and blend it together with bent normal based height map.. theoretically it should give me even better results for game purposes as I eliminate cons and keeping pros from both. Level of additional height details is controlled by blend node. Before I update my tutorial I need to proceed few more tests, as I need to be sure how it affects final results.
Capture itself was a tricky one as snow is very rare in UK and when happens, melts super fast. Usually after few hours there is just wet mud left. Also as I had just few hours window I had just one shot and had to proceed with sun trying to catch me. I failed, sun caught me but equaliser node did great job. Another change I introduced was using remote to speed up capture – it saved about 20-30% usual capture time.
Here goes the breakdown from the artist:
